  • One if my favorite places to shop in Southern California. Parking is free. I like the escalators. Live music was playing outside Friday that made it a beautiful evening all around.

  • Quite possibly one of the most beautiful malls that I've been to. There's so many departments that I'm both familiar with and unfamiliar with that it's a bit hard to become bored of this place—unless if I lived here, I guess. Parking is pretty large, so it was not hard to snag a spot. Every store here felt like a flagship store, packed with the best of what the brands can display. There's a Windows and Apple store, which is great because I can go here to compare devices all in one place. I also purchased some sneakers from Adidas Originals here, and they had one pair left in stock in my size! Go here to have a different kind of shopping experience. Even if most of it will be window shopping.
  • Best mall in the USA! Every nice store and high end designer you can think of us sold here. If you are looking for cheaper shopping then this place may not be where to go. But even if you can't afford it, it is fun to see everything. It's like Rodeo Dr. in Orange County.
  • Well spread out, comfortable car parking, eating places and movie theatre - all very harmonious and classy. Stores and outlets are well stocked.
  • I love this mall. This is huge. Lot of stores to choose from. Nice fun vibe. Very upscale mall. Interior ambiance is also upscale. Me and my wife we go here just to spend time we love it here.
  • Easily my favorite mall to just walk around and window shop. The South Coast Plaza mall is a higher end shopping mall with big names like YSL, Gucci, Channel, Tiffany, etc. I usually come to shop at the J Crew Men's shop, Uniqlo, and Nordstrom. I'll also stop by to eat Din Tai Fung (be warned there's a wait on weekends!) or Vie de France. They have a Starbucks (and a franchised Starbucks inside the Macy's), but I feel like an upscale mall could do with some better coffee options. Parking is ample, but you need to know where to look. I prefer the parking garage by Bloomingdale's as it tends to have a lot of empty spaces, but the other garages usually have some spots but more traffic. A great place to hang out and grab a bite!
