Fun and relaxing and yet exclusive. Parking is a challenge but be patient and drive cautiously. I like the men's cloths, Aveda, the food, Microsoft store, Apple Store, Verizon Store, Amazon Store, and Jonathan's furniture and exclusive west coast household items. Loved the chair and the selections on the shelves. It reminded me of Joel's in Spokane when I was... More

Don't come expecting your typical shopping mall food court - this place features mostly high-end stores and restaurants in an outdoor setting. We counted three Starbucks, an amazon book store, an apple and Microsoft store, as well as a bunch of other boutiques.

If you are looking for some unique and some chain store shopping in a beautiful area this is the place to be. Some very fun local stores mixed in with some national retail stores. Good restaurants and cafes all blended together in a very lovely outdoor shopping area!

This is a very nice outdoors pedestrian shopping mall. Nice layout and many of the typical stores but also a nice selection of restaurants as well. Walking distance from a nice hotel down the street.

As malls go, U Village is one of my least favorites. Not easy to get to, nearly impossible to find parking, which on the plus side saves you from the high prices you'll encounter in an uninspired collection of high-end chain stores. U Village used to be much more funky and real, and there are a few unique shops left,... More

I haven't been there in years I was so surprised to see all the pricy stores there. Not many of the local and quirky shops that used to be there.

This mall has changed a lot over the years. They've done a good job of making it look very modern. It looks very reminiscent of shopping centers that you would find in Orange County.
