“One of the finest shopping facilities in America”
Reviewed March 19, 2012

We went to Northpark with the intention of letting our 8 year old pick one of his birthday presents. Herein we found the only disappointing feature - lack of a good general toy store. There was the Lego Store, and Disney, and Puzzle Zoo - but I guess the Kay-Bee Toystores of my youth are of a bygone era.

The only thing to say about this mall is that it is HUGE. There is a ton of real estate here, and you could spend all day walking the halls and browsing in each little store.

The little Gelato place on the corner, Paciugo, is excellent.

Take a pair of tennis shoes and remember where you parked!!!!
For what it's worth, Nordstrom's was a good place to enter the mall, and the parking was convenient.

“Big mall with lots of stores”
Reviewed March 2, 2012

I think you opinion of this mall depends on what kind of stores you shop in. There are a lot of high end stores that are pretty expensive but some people enjoy shopping in those places. The mall is pretty big, the food court has a nice selection of food, and the mall is conveniently located off of 75. The downsides I saw to this place is that there are a lot of families with kids, the stores are mostly high-end, and parking is sometimes pretty hard to find. They even have valet that gets well used because of this issues.

“A touch of class and glamour”
Reviewed February 6, 2012

This mall is a $15 taxi fare from the Galleria mall and well worth the visit! It has a great collection of high end luxury stores from the commercial giants Louis Vutton, Gucci, Tiffany's and De Beers to the elegant Bvlgari, trendy Burberry and the sexy Herve Leger. There is also a good mix of affordable high street stores so wether the wallet allows the luxury available or not this is a great place for retail therapy. The high end stores have a good selection of new season collections and the staff are very helpful and friendly. Even window shopping is fun here! The staff in Bvlgari and Sephora particularly stood out for great customer service.
The ambience of the mall is good and the people watching fun.....a good dose of the glamourous Dallasites.

“Amazing art on display & great shopping”
Reviewed January 24, 2012

NorthPark has the most wonderful art on display. It's like visiting a museum. Take a few moments to look at it and appreciate it.
There's Neiman Marcus, DeBeers Diamonds, Macy's, Nordstroms, a first class movie theater complex, and many great places to eat.
There's an Apple computer store, Louis Vuitton boutique, Valentino, and many more top designers.
Always upgrading and changing tennants, but Neiman Marcus remains the top anchor tennant.
A place where many Dallasites go in the heat of summer to walk!
Use valet parking or park someplace with good light and near an entrance to the mall. Like any urban center, NorthPark has its share of crime in the parking lots.
Major negative: Avoid the food court (it was a big mistake to lease to the vendors as they are rude and attract roving groups of teens without any adult supervision).
