“People everywhere”
Reviewed 30 March 2012

Awesome trendy shops with lots of people everywhere. Nice place to grab a Starbucks, sit on a bench, and watch strange people walk by.

“just shop online.”
Reviewed 29 March 2012

Crowded, no parking, traffic, rude people. Want to know why online shopping is so popular? Spend an hour at the Galleria.

“A melting pot”
Reviewed 28 March 2012

In this mall you will find almost everything. From the most expensive clothing or electronic stores, to a hair cut, a hamburger, or a fine restaurant. It is not cheap at all, but its a nice to walk around and see people.

“Do you love to shop?”
Reviewed 28 March 2012

The Galleria is one of the grandest malls in the country. It houses great designers such as Gucci, Armani, and Jimmy Choo. It also has great restaurants such as Oceanaire and Grille 5115. Go and spend the day. It is electric. Do not forget where you park because you can get turned around.

Even though we have a Galleria Mall in Dallas - I LOVE the Galleria in Houston and the whole area around it. IT IS HUGE!

I really love visiting the Galleria during a conference when I can have plenty of time to walk the entire mall.

Every store in the nation is in this mall!
