BigMallRat's Rating: 8 out of 10

Serramonte mall in Daly City has traditionally been regarded as a nice shopping center with a good mix of stores, and that hasn't changed.


The interior of the Serramonte mall is nice, light, and bright. The center court is a Zen comfort zone. Using Feng Shui principles, they balanced natural light, a stone koi water pond, bamboo landscaping, and plush furniture.

Using tasteful and up-to-date colors, each wing has its own colors that are based on a season: summer, autumn, spring, and winter. I found the mall to be calming and pleasant; so unlike many other shopping centers.


Serramonte mall has an easy layout and you'll find a nice variety of national retailers and some upscale shops. H&M has a sizable store here, as well as Dick's Sporting Goods in 2014. Daiso, always a fun place, is located outside the center. In general, you'll likely find what you need here.


A pleasant food court is located near Crunch Gym. An excellent selection of casual dining outlets with an emphasize on Asian fare. The eating area is spacious and features a large fireplace for atmosphere.

Sit-down restaurant options include the Elephant Bar near JC Penney and Denny's outside the center.


Thanks to a large parking lot, parking is never difficult to find. However, don't be surprised if you have to park some distance from an entrance.

The best place to park is the far side of Macy's.


Serramonte mall is located in Daly City, off I-280 at Serramonte Blvd.
