- Memerable Dining ExperienceBocaBoomerVIPDined on 8/17/2014This is the first time I had dinner at the Vu. I have had lunch here on my past visits to Jersey City and had an opportunity to experience dinner so I didn't pass that up. The unparalleled view of lower Manhattan's skyline at twilight is second to none. The menu selections are varied and intriguing and were thoroughly enjoyed by all in my party. Service was excellent as well.Special Features:
- Needs some workplannerDined on 8/16/2014This is really a hidden gem but the place looks tired. The view, of course, is amazing. The service and food were good too. I think if the Hyatt spiffed the place up a bit it might be a bigger draw. We were there on a Sat night, at sunset, and not too many diners. Just small things like the wood table was scratched and messy made it less than stellar. I'd go back as it's a great spot on a beautiful night but I'd wear jeans and lower my expectations!Special Features:
- TerribleFavoriteVIPDined on 8/14/2014This place has nothing to offer, even the view is nicer from the promenade. Food was terrible and expensive, the waiter needs to go and learn English and than do some speech therapy. The place has no ambiance, the chef has no imagination, need to go learn about food and how to cook. In short, do not waste your time and money.
- Perfect for a special occasionOpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 8/1/2014I reserved here for our 15 years anniversary and my wife's birthday. The restaurant is very cooperated to my requests and even gave us a small cake with a little candle. The food is very tasty and is not too expensive along with the view of downtown. Even in this restaurant, only 4 tables can have a completed view of the whole downtown & the new World Trade Center. We had one, so my wife can brag for it. There were also a super rich guy sit by our table. We don't know who he is but the manager come out for him and he has a bodyguard stand by the table to block others' view. That is another thing my wife is bragging for... Anyway, that night was so unforgettable for my wife per she said. I feel completely worthy for what I had paid for!Special Features:
- DinerVIPDined on 8/1/2014Service well done. Food was was excellent including wonderful salmon and pork chop. Tomato soup classic very tasty. A must visit restaurant with a special feel to it.Special Features:

Yum.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- ZekeDined on 6/21/2014Had a reservation for 7. Planned on watching the skyline turn colors with the sunset and we weren't disappointed. I had the strip steak and my wife had the filet. We were both very pleased with the meal. Dessert was a cappuccino with chocolate lava cake also very good. Waitress was very friendly and checked to see if all was ok.. Parking was 10 dollars after validation from the Vu. Afterwards a nice waterfront stroll to reduce the guilt from the lava cakeSpecial Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- 677PVIPDined on 6/21/2014The Vu has a spectacular "vu" of lower Manhattan, even if your table is not right at the window.

We will be back.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- KEENJVIPDined on 6/15/2014We went for Father's Day Brunch. This restaurant, located in the Hyatt Hotel, has good, American food. What stands out is the view - large windows overlooking the Hudson and NYC skyline. The dining room is spacious, and it was quiet so we were able to have a conversation.Special Features:

- Amazing Find!FramboisVIPDined on 6/3/2014Chose The Vu Restaurant because of its location and 1,000 point feature. Have gone back a couple of times because of the excellent food, service, and the fantastic view of NYC. Lots of great menu choices from make your own salads to unusual sandwiches, soups, appetizers, and entrees. Accent is on fresh, seasonal, and natural. It's in the Hyatt hotel, but don't let that stop you from trying this wonderful lunch spot!Special Features:

- View is GreatHorse4lightDined on 5/10/2014The Vu has always been a favorite of mine for brunch on Mothers Day. But they disappointed us last year and we went somewhere else. However, because of the view, we did have dinner there one night. The food is very good, but the menu is really too limited for a full-scale restaurant. Fine for a hotel, but not for a place to consider just going out for an evening.Special Features:

- Great service mediocre foodCraigVIPDined on 4/20/2014Wonderful staff and a killer view of NYC, but for the price the food doesn't cut itSpecial Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Good view, VuMickyFinnDRIDined on 4/18/2014I'd picked this venue pretty much back in November 2013 based on the view and the food in equal measure. Neither disappoints! I found the lady on the front desk (Shanaya?) very helpful and friendly and all the servers were very efficient, knowledgeable and attentive. Had the crab cake starter followed by the rib eye, all in all a very pleasant experience in a very pleasant locationSpecial Features:
- Manhattan SkylineBocaBoomerVIPDined on 4/10/2014This was my second visit to the "Vu" and what an uncompromising vista it provides. With unobstructed views, we enjoyed a 50 yard line vantage point for the mesmerizing architectural splendor of the Freedom Tower and a quick gaze south to the Statue of Liberty at the mouth of the Hudson River. Truly a nonpareil visual experience complemented by attentive service and above average luncheon fare. Reward yourself with a relaxing lunch at the Hyatt's 'Vu'.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Very enjoyable restaurant.ComereDined on 4/7/2014Very enjoyable restaurant. The view was outstanding.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great service by people eagerArturVIPDined on 4/5/2014Great service by people eager to give you the best service. The food is very good as well. The view of Manhattan is superb. You get the impression of dining on a ship in the Hudson. My only reservation is that the portions are a bit small.Special Features:
- Love the VuHugefoodieVIPDined on 4/2/2014The Vu never disappoints. The Black Bass was phenomenal. My server provided outstanding service! The view across the river to NYC is always phenomenal.Special Features:
- The view at the VuHorse4lightDined on 3/30/2014As always, nothing beats the view from a window-side table. But lunch was exceptional with a great catch of the day and the service was efficient and invisible, which is always the best. No chatty waiters, no interruptions. Well-trained staff. Still one of my favorites.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Spectacular View...GigiDined on 3/21/2014Food was good. I ordered the black bass special and substituted the brussel sprouts for the roasted tomato couscous. The fish was delicious but the cous cous was a little bland. My boyfriend ordered a steak which he also said was good however the quinoa was bland as well. It seems like the side dishes were not seasoned. Everything came out with a nice presentation. Service was a little slow but I would still go back and try it again. I was kind of surprised to see that it was not very busy but everything did taste fresh.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Stellar views; so-so foodRichVIPDined on 3/21/2014Mussel starter was excellent. Crab cake was dry and not much lump. Entrees were acceptable. Dessert had a freezer burn taste.Special Features:
- Celebration with a great VU!OpenTable Diner Since 2005VIPDined on 3/15/2014Perfect corner table with optimal skyline view-- even had binoculars for those inclined! Birthday celebration and everyone enjoyed their dinners-- crisp duck was especially good! Also appreciated that it was quiet enough to enjoy conversation.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great View - otherwise okBahHummbugVIPDined on 2/25/2014Dinner portions and dinner prices for lunch. Typical corporate hotel food situated across from a fabulous view of Manhattan.Special Features:
- Stunning Views/Service/FoodTedGDined on 2/15/2014Celebrated my wife's birthday with some friends at the Vu. The service was top notch. The views of Manhattan were just stunning. We did not feel "pushed out" when we were finished. The servers were very attentive and knowledgable on the menu. Only drawbacks was that the chairs were not the most comfortable and that the menu was limited. You will enjoy this experience.Special Features:
- Food took too long yo comeOpenTable Diner Since 2010Dined on 2/13/2014Food took too long yo come out. then it was cold. Dry and tasteless.
- Best view of ManhattanJacqueVIPDined on 1/27/2014This is the best restaurant in Jersey City - and it happens to have the best view of Manhattan. We have had dinner and lunch here and both were memorable. The staff is professional and helpful. The menu has just about every option you could desire and the preparation is perfect. I had the catch of the day for dinner and it was the best red snapper that I've ever had. The Seafood Cobb salad is also incredibly full of fresh seafood, avocado and tomato and is fabulous. Thank you Hyatt in Jersey City!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Good Food, Excellent serviceJoviDined on 1/26/2014We went on a slow night and we found the atmosphere to be very inviting and warm. Beautiful view of Lower Manhattan. Food was good, nothing special, but also well cooked, though my girlfriend's pork chop was a bit on the flavorless side. What made it a memorable night, however, was the excellent service provided by the restaurant. Yoomi, the receptionist was very accommodating and the waiter, who I cannot think of his name at the very moment, was friendly and energetic, happy to have guests, which made the ambiance that much better. Overall, 4 guests with two appetizers, four entrees w/ side dishes, two dessert (out of this world!), and two bottles of Riesling, it came out to roughly $120/person, very moderately priced. Would recommend!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
