Room at the Vu
The staff were very nice. Tenderloin was cooked perfect. Drinks were hefty pours. Seems like every table is a good table. We were happy with ours.

Food was fantastic and so
Food was fantastic and so is the view. The negative was our waiter who never came back once he took our order until after the meal was eaten. No offer to order a glass of wine and no refill of water glasses.

A Must Experience
The Vu restaurant is just as advertised on all the reviews. The view across the river of lower Manhattan during the sunset and early evening is definitely a must experience. The plus was the food, which was outstanding. The mushroom risotto was the best I've ever had. Also, ourour waiter made our evening special, attending to the dinner necessities, answering our questions, and leaving us alone to savor the moment. Overall just an outstanding experience. Thank you open table for making the reservation so easy to make.

GREAT VIEW, GREAT FOOD & SERVICE
The entire staff seemed great from door men to valets to the restaurant team. Our waiter Dominck was especially amazing. He was so friendly and attentive and really knew the menu very well. He was extremely helpful and really understands how much excellent customer service matters. I came with my parents and they felt the same way. We are certainly coming back and asking for Dominick!!! Thanks so much.

From the intiial greeting
From the intiial greeting by the restaurants outstanding reception - Yommi, who couldn't have been more professional in ensuring we were seated facing the amazing view of Manhattan to the remarkable service exhibited by Awal, our waitperson, amazing/most enjoyable experience at this neighborhood gem. The food is outstanding and the duck breast special sensational, Halibot is to die for - each prepared in a remarkable fashion. Drinks perfect,comprehensive wine list. The salads were tasteful. And management in the restaurant ensured that all our needs were satisfied by checking in with us. This restaurant is a rare gem, exceeding similar high end fare you'd find in Manhattan and a staple for us for years to come. Come here and enjoy.

The view is worth it!!
The view at the Vu is incredible. My wife and I have been back a few times. The appatizers are great, main courses we could give or take but overall the view is what we come for and the food isn't bad. This time we stayed overnight and had a great evening. We'll be back.

We had a long leisurely dinner here for the 4th of July....with views extending from the southern most tip of Manhattan to the George Washington Bridge. It was spectacular. We spent 5 hours at our window table. This was for a fixed price 4th of July menu at I believe $65 per person....3 courses plus a dessert bar. The food was great and the staff couldn't have been better. We watched fireworks from our table. The view was partially obstructed by the peninsula just to the north of us but beautiful nonetheless. The restaurant will not represent they they have fireworks viewing however because the fireworks location changes year to year. In any case, this was a truly memorable evening and well worth the price.

Room with a Vu
I have eaten here a few times and the food is very good for hotel food. I love the food at the bar as well. The views of the manhattan skyline especially the new world trade buildings is just breathtaking. Great place to hang out in Jersey City

Great views of NYC, romantic dinner
Brought my best friend here for her birthday dinner. Was a fabulous experience. We were all quite surprised that Exchange Place has such a lovely and intimate restaurant. Will definitely be returning soon.

I had been to the bar many times for drinks but I was astounded by the view in the restaurant. Absolutely amazing! All of the staff were super friendly and I was pleased at seeing vegan options on the menu. This anniversary date will be tough to beat. Thank you Vu!

This restaurant not only has great food but also has beautiful views of Mahattan. Service was great as well. I took clients out to lunch and it was a great place to have lunch and talk.

Definitely going back!
Had a wonderful experience at Vu restaurant. It was my wedding anniversary and it was perfect! The staff went above and beyond to ensure that my husband and I had a wonderful time. The food was excellent, with great vegetarian options for my husband. We had a wonderful time and will definitely be going back.

Our server was magnificent, the manager was fantastic, and the food was divine. The only issue was the tin plate of two scallops for the table! we were shocked at such a small serving, but the manager took care of the dish without us even suggesting it. They were all great!

Great Location and What a View!
I found this restaurant to be of high quality, convenient and very supportive for a business meeting. The location is excellent and the view of the Hudson and Lower Manhattan is quite excellent.

Wonderful, attentive, delicious evening of a spectaular dinner experience.
Still...so ROMANTIC, however, wish that the tables were lit better to see the food and wine.
Compliementary dessert as this was a speciall anniversary occassion and was much appreciated.
Thank you, Dr. and Mrs. James Charles

Great service and incredible views
Despite everything we had already read about this restaurant, it overcame our expectations. The service was extremely attentive, the views of Manhattan absolutely amazing, and the food really good. I’d say is the perfect restaurant for an special occasion. We were celebrating my mother’s 60th anniversary, and they even surprised us with a small cake, and let us take a cocktail from the bar at our table, to keep enjoying the incredible views for as long as we wanted. They definitely made our night unforgettable.

While celebrating a special family occasion, we had a delightful time at the Vu restaurant. The spectacular view of lower Manhattan and the surrounding waters did not disappoint. Although initially we picked this restaurant for the view, we were pleasantly surprised by the good food and the very accommodating, friendly staff, specifically Mohammed, Richard and Irina. We thoroughly enjoyed our leisurely lunch at this restaurant!

Amazing view, extremely good food
Vu is the main restaurant for the Hyatt in Jersey City. Doesn't sound too exciting. The hotel, however, sits on a pier in the Hudson across from downtown, and the views are absolutely staggering. If you sit at the end you have a 270 degree view from the Statue of Liberty to the GWB. Vu was fairly quiet - a few hotel guests and some from a meeting on-site -- so this is a great place for a lunch to enjoy views. The food was also very nice. A thick juicy burger on a fresh roll, excellent fries. My colleage had a crab cake burger that he said was good. Vu does a good business for dinner and special occasions, and I now know is also a great place for lunch.

Thanksgiving out of town
The first word that comes to mind is Service. Our hostess Shaye was the best. Personally on a holiday, she went the extra distance and had the kitchen cook up some green beans since they had not been offered on the buffet. She heat the apple pie and found vanilla ice cream. All without hope of extra tip as the tip was built into our Thanksgiving Buffet price. The buffet was great lots of options but only one veggy brussel sprots or salad. The reason for the green beans.
I would recommend this place for the view before now they have be hooked on service.
