About
This sprawling outdoor shopping hub is one of California’s most popular malls. Before flocking to the stores, board the free double-decker Grove Trolley to The Original Farmers Market where you can browse gourmet groceries and specialty foods. Back at the mall, you'll find a range of fashion-forward brands and pop-up stores. When hungry, choose between classic American grub, Italian dining, or fast food amidst other cuisines. Be sure to stay for the spectacular light show at the Dancing Fountain as well. Visit The Grove as part of a LA highlights tour, or as a self-guided retail therapy. – Tripadvisor

    Good shopping and street food
    A relaxed and fun atmosphere. Great shopping at different price levels. The Farmers market has lots of choice for inexpensive street food. Sitting at tables outside make a fun evening out.

    Beautiful place to visit and enjoy some time alone or with loved ones.
    A great spot to visit while in LA. Beautiful, always filled with visitors, great restaurants, shops for shopping, near other attractions. Recommended to spend some time there for lunch or afternoon coffee and desserts!

It was a lovely day to stroll through The Grove's outdoor shopping center. Not only is there a large Nordstrom department store, but also a movie theater, clothing stores, cosmetics stores, an American Girl store and several restaurants. Dancing fountain water spirts in the center pond are interesting to watch.

Such a beautiful mall with great shops and restaurants BUT the parking management is disingenuous. Shops and restaurants will "validate" your parking for 2 hours, but once you go over by 1 minute your validation is revoked and voided. I went over my "validation" by 10 minutes and was charged $8. I called the manager to complain and was told that there are signs informing visitors that the "validation" is just pretend if you go over 2 hours. I never saw any signs.
It's a shame to spend money in shops and restaurants just to be disrespected by a parking policy that seems to be designed to rip off customers.

Great Place to Shop and Great Place to People Watch. The Grove is very different than most outdoor shopping venues. It has such a variety of shopping and dining experiences. Sometimes there is entertainment and it is always buzzing with people of all ages. Some people visit just to experience the Vibe, the Experience and a beautiful walking place. It is right adjacent to the "OLD" Farmer's Market which is a historic landmark.

This place is a joke. They lie to you! They validate parking but once you leaving the place they will charge you full price. So many reviews about parking. All they will say is that the parking management is separate. The parking lady was so rude and she said please go ahead and pay and hang up.
And btw , on google they delete bad reviews. Such a shame Caruso.

This was a nice outdoor mall. The central garden was a nice place to hang out and meet up with friends or take photos. Many of the restaurants had views of the garden and the water spouts. Most of the high end and chain stores were located here along the main drag or off on the small side streets. A large movie theater was close to the center and lots of signs all around the mall promoting the upcoming new movie, In The Heights. With some easing of COVID, the electric trolley was running from the front to the back of the mall. It was a double decker and free to ride. At the end of the mall was the Farmers Market which was a better option for different varieties of casual food. The only annoying part of our visit was having to pay for parking. I’ve notice more and mall installing gates and pay kiosks but suspended them during COVID. However not here.

The best hidden secret in the USA is in this mall. A ASOS | NORDSTROM store is located in this mall, and it is the only one in the United States. While the Nordstrom store has a little of this design, the specialized store and the other end of the outdoor mall is the one to take teenage daughters. My teenagers loved this store and even found dresses in size 0 which they both need to fit.

The rest of the mall is beautiful and is worth the stop. Parking does cost money but it is worth it, and the food available is high quality. It is a very pleasant place to shop and eat as long as the weather is good (and it mostly is).

We went to the food court at The Grove in mid-October for an early lunch around 11:30 am on a Saturday. We were pleased by the spacing of the tables and staff that were wiping down tables and chairs after each use. The area was getting somewhat busy but there were still a few open tables the further you went into the food court. Tables and chairs are positioned in an open air partially covered area.

There are a lot of food options to eat here and our family ordered from different places. Two people in our party ordered different versions of chicken sandwiches with a side of tater tots from Fritzi Coop. Dad ordered a chicken shawarma wrap from Moishe’s. We all shared bites from each other’s order and found the food very good. There is plenty of parking in lots around this location and they do validate with a food purchase.

Nice shopping, good stores, but very difficult to social distance as it is packed. If I have one recommendation, walk to the end and eat at the hidden Farmer's Market. There was so much good food there that we ate off and on for hours!

Don't forget to get macarons at Laduree! They were fantastic and worth the wait!

The parking was also a breeze for our 6 & 1/2 ft van and some places even validated.

It feels like Disneyland with more shopping and no rides. It’s a fun way to spend time and money. We did a cooking class at Sur La Table that was fantastic. It went from 6:30-9:00 culminating in an amazing dinner of two kinds of fresh made pasta and sauces and a beautiful salad with fennel and oranges. We learned so many tips and tricks to take back home. I can’t wait to try some of this for friends and family!
