    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!

    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.

    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.

    It's a great outdoor shopping mall, but I personally find it more exciting for Mario Lopez's Extra! show taping. Passerby can be part of the show - just join the gathering crowd before a segment starts taping (or during, but you'll be at the very back) and get up close with the celebrity guests. I was 5 feet from Hilary Duff, and got to interview Richie Sambora (Bon Jovi guitarist) for the show! They'll always pick a handful of people in the crowd to ask the celebs questions, so definitely try to be a part of this. It's an unforgettable experience!

    A lovely place to walk around but unfortunately didn't offer too much. The stores are mostly typical chains you can find in almost every single malls. The restaurants didn't seem too interesting either. Having said that, I still enjoy strolling around, especially at night. It is pretty and romantic.

    I was told the farmers' market is excellent. Too bad I missed it. Next time. For sure.

    The Grove is a modern,outdoor mall that is fun and trendy!
    There are a host of restaurants and popular stores.
    There is a cable car that will take you all over the mall.
    It is connected to the very famous Farmer's Market and a great way to spend the afternoon.

    Great place for shopping! Various shops and restaurants. The original Farmers Market is also a nice place to wander around!

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.
