  • Excellent mall! I come here once in a while, it is always clean. The restroom are spotless too. They don't have a lot of sales, so i window shop more than spend. The food court is pretty good, but somewhat expensive. I guess that is normal.
  • The food was amazing! It was very busy so I had to wait awhile to recive the food, but it was worth the wait. It looks so nice and so fancy! Make sure you dress nice. The shopping centres were very up to date with the fashion trends. I was impressed. Overall I had a very good experience here.
  • My wife and I like to come here. The location is great, and you can walk from the Water Tower Place to a bunch of other shops. The building itself has great food and snack options, and it has a ton of merchandise stores. It always feels very busy, in a good way, and not dead and empty. It has a lot of well-known high-quality shops. My wife loves the makeup and cosmetics options they offer. 4 stars because the wifi is bad.
  • Water tower place is an amazing shopping mall experience. There are many good food options and a variety of shopping options. The downside is that there isn't free public parking since it's in the heart of the city. Public is essentially the best way to get there. The building itself is beautiful and modern looking. This is a great tourist attraction. I highly recommend bringing your out of town family and friends here.
  • I took a friend there for lunch -at Foodlife - which is great for a casual lunch. EACH PERSON gets his or her own card, which is charged as you walk around this upscale food court. (There is also a sit-down restaurant, if you prefer something sedate) It's great for groups of people who each want a different kind of food: Stir -fry, Soup Bar (my friend loved her turkey chili), Comfort foods (ribs/macncheese), Salad Bar, Fish, Chicken, Chinese, Mexican, Burgers...alcohol, coffee, sodas, juices, teas (hot & cold). And at the end of the meal, as you exit - each person can easily pay his own tab, from the amounts charged to his/her card. I send tourists and families there... It's FUN, delicious, & easy to watch what you are spending... GO...Enjoy!
