    I genuinely like this mall as it's very clean and well maintained. As some other yelpers mentioned, it does have that Disneyland feel to it, which likely contributes to the overall charm and appeal. Complete with a wide array of shops including but not limited to Barnes & Noble, Nordstroms, and Apple, this outdoor mall has something for everyone.

    Now my decision to give The Grove 4 instead of 5 stars is soley based on the costly parking situation. $2 for ever 15 minutes past 3 hours? Ugh... That's highway robbery and their website lied! Online it stated $1 every 15 minutes past the 3 hour mark. Curses!! *shakes fist vigorously* But Luckily if you're diligent with your time (unlike me) you will be able to still park for free given that you can shop/browse for less than 3 hours.

    FREE 2 HOUR VALIDATION AT NORDSTROMS (no purchase necessary)! The parking structure will provide a complimentary one hour parking and if you take a stroll in Nordstrom's women's shoe department you can take your ticket to the small blue/creamish color machine at the back of one of the cashier's desk. It's self-serve, so no worries on feeling awkward.

    I love The Grove for its unique shopping experience. It's an outdoor mall and there's a range of shops. When you get down to the Farmers Market end of the row, you'll come across the area with all of the food stands. There's quite the selection to choose from, so you're bound to find something. You're also in the middle of the Beverly Hills area!

    sometimes I miss the old farmers market by itself.

    Don't get me wrong - there are quite a few stores (Nordies, Barnes, Anthropologie, Victoria's Secret, Banana Republic, Apple to name a few) and the farmers market is still there. But the parking blows (it's super expensive - I got the 4 hour for $2 because I was at the theater, but after a late lunch at Maggianos it was $9 for 6 hours of parking) and it's usually crawling with TONS of people...and by people I mean children...and little dogs in clothes. What's the deal?

    Maybe I've been living out in the suburbs too long where parking is free - and there are just more places to roam.

    Amazing Outdoor shopping area, even for those who hate shopping. And the kids love the musical fountains...

    This is an outdoor shopping complex with mostly corporate American shops, but it's beautiful to be outside strolling around, rather than boxed inside a big concrete shopping mall. There's a train/trolly for kids to ride and they've got a huge fountain with "dancing waters" that jet to the Sinatra tunes piped around the place from hidden speakers. There is a big movie theater which has quite a big selection and good, comfortable seats with great projection. There's a Mac Store here and the biggest Victoria's Secret in LA. Saver Tip: You can park on the street a few blocks away and save on parking, but read your street signs carefully. Otherwise, the parking structure is fairly inexpensive if you get validation.

    Connected to farmer'smarket, so a cool place to shop around and get some food afterwards (or before) to fill-up. Parking here is difficult and expensive. it took me 30 minutes just to find a spot. This place is pack, so be prepared to be pump into. Cool place to visit though, kinda like an outdoor Venesian Hotel.

    I love The Grove. It's a lovely outdoor shopping mall that's designed to feel like you're walking a cobblestoned plaza of shops and restaurants in Europe. In numbers, the shops are fewer than other large malls. But Nordstrom is here, and that goes a long way for me!

    I like that you can spend a leisurely day at The Grove. The Farmer's Market connected to The Grove is always a great stop. And if you're not in the mood for that, sit down on one of the restaurants (my favorite here is The Farm). Sit outside for the best people watching. Morel's is also excellent for people-watching and grabbing drinks.

    Tip: If you spend >$200 altogether at The Grove, parking fee will be waived!

    Literally just next to the Farmers Market; the Grove is a lovely place to take a stroll, do some shopping and enjoy a drink or snack. Don't miss out on a trolley ride!

    If you're visiting LA or live there, this is a great place for an outdoor stroll and window shopping. You might spot some celebs, but nonetheless great for some fresh (or smoggy LA) air and people watching. Typical chain stores and restaurants but still, enjoyable.

    LA's coolest shopping malls - its designed like a European village. Come here around Christmas time, when they have snow machines to make it snow while you are shopping.

Description

It's an outdoor mall, but it's more than that. Summer or winter, The Grove always seems decked out for the season. Whether you've come to shop at the department stores, ride the trolley, catch a movie, or just enjoy the hustle and bustle, this commercial oasis offers plenty to do for everyone. If you're not into the big box stores, check out the farmer's market/crafts fair that goes on close to the ground-level parking lot. Food-wise, you'll find all kinds of vendors selling greasy and delicious eats, as well as tasty treats and snacks; craft-wise, there is a sort-of hodge-podge of local artists and hobbyists-- it's great fun.
