Fun, Fun, Fun! – I have had the privelage to go to several restaurants here as well as check out the nightlife! This is a must for people new to the area and those who have not been here in a while! Good times!!!
Solid Fun – The Citywalk is a really cool place to go if you just want to hang out, look at different stores, shop, eat, drink and meet interesting people. I like coming here to people watch or hang out with friends. I am glad we have a place like this close to home. It is a tourist attraction but it makes it even more interesting.
Great Shopping Experience – CityWalk is a great place to shop and eat. The food was great!, and i got a personalized leather bracelet from Rant 'n' Rave Kiosk. The employees at Rant 'n' Rave were very helpful and kind.
great times – love this place, there's so much to do and see here, and its always a good time. there are quite a few tourists but its the whole attaction to this place! there's a good selection of places to eat and places to entertain you! can't go wrong with a trip to city walk.
Getting Better – There are more resturants and the entertainment is getting better. Everytime I go...there is new stuff.
Worst experience ever – My husband my friends and I went there to have a good time we waited in line for 20 mins. or so then when we got to the front a big black security guard didn't let my husband in because supposedly baggy Dockers pants. His pants were no baggier that any one else in that place. It was so embarrassing!!! I will never go back there again or recommended to anyone else I know!!!
Place is awesome, cost to park is not – OK, so this definitely an L.A. tourist trap, and if you don?t come with a car full of people, parking is atrocious at around $10 per car. However, all the flashing billboards and larger-than-life architecture make Citywalk feel like a little slice of Vegas in Valley, just without the gambling. Tapas bar Tu Tu Tango and Southwestern rodeo restaurant Saddle Ranch are my favorite places to dine. I love looking at the quirky objects inside the socks and magnet stores. Citywalk is a great place to bring out-of-towners for some entertainment or for Angelenos who are not too embarrassed to mix in with the tourists.
Claustrophic and cheesy – As an outdoor mall, this one misses the mark. As a tourist destination too. Whether you're going for a movie, to shop, or to dine, it just seems like its a mess. The alley is too narrow, leading to crowdedness even when the crowd isn't that large. Tourist mix with area teens. And they charge for parking at ridiculous prices. All the stores pretty much sell stupid stuff. And the restaurants don't really even try. If you're from out of town, I'd suggest you skip the trap and go straight for one of the Los Angeles restaurant rows or upscale shopping centers. Visitors who have experienced Orlando's version of the same beware, this one is nothing like the open airy and thriving east coast namesake.
Lots of Shop Eye Candy – City Walk has improved over the years. There were issues regarding gangs that hung out there that seem to have been resolved with an increased security presence. They have nice places to spend your time and money like BB Kings, the Rhumba Room, Howl at the Moon piano bar, and the newly remodeled AMC movie theaters. The major issue is that it costs $10 to park in order to go to Citywalk so I'd recommend carpooling here and make sure you are going to do something or else you're just paying $10 to see tourists, drunk clubbers, and neon lights.
A Great Place – This is a really nice place to go regardless if you are visiting Universal Studios or not.
Alot of fun stores-even one that has nothing but socks! Great places to eat and just alot of fun with bright neon signs and other cool stuff!
