  • " Enjoyed the Salmon immensely. Crab cake appetizer was very good. Portions were perfect. Best view of nyc period."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "Chose 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!"

  • "We had the breakfast buffet, which had a great variety of different foods for a variety of tastes. The coffee was delicious, and especially enjoyed the chocolate croissants, which I usually do not eat for breakfast, but was willing to make an exception. Yum."

  • "Had 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 cake"

  • "The Vu has a spectacular "vu" of lower Manhattan, even if your table is not right at the window. The staff was very friendly and attentive, adding pleasure to our dining experience. The food was prepared just right, and was delicious. We will be back."

  • "We 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."

  • "The 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."

  • "I'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 location"

  • "Wonderful staff and a killer view of NYC, but for the price the food doesn't cut it "
    Dined on 4/20/2014
  • "This 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'."

  • "Very enjoyable restaurant. The view was outstanding."
    Dined on 4/7/2014
  • "Great 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."
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "The Vu never disappoints. The Black Bass was phenomenal. My server provided outstanding service! The view across the river to NYC is always phenomenal."
    Dined on 4/2/2014
  • "As 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."
    Dined on 3/30/2014
  • "Food 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."
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "Mussel starter was excellent. Crab cake was dry and not much lump. Entrees were acceptable. Dessert had a freezer burn taste."

  • "Dinner portions and dinner prices for lunch. Typical corporate hotel food situated across from a fabulous view of Manhattan."
    Dined on 2/25/2014
  • "Celebrated 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."

  • "We 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!"

  • "This 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!"

  • "We always eat at Vu for breakfast whenever we are staying in Jersey City, the weekend buffets are great. This was the first time we had dinner there. The grilled steaks were perfect, my wife had an acorn squash vegetable entrée that she loved, and the fish entree was great. Next stay at the Hyatt will definitely include a dinner at the Vu."

  • "not reviewing breakfast buffet- have not had. reviewing the menu - food is good, expensive for breakfast but the food hits the spot, and service is very good. definitely good for corporate breakfasts since company picks up the bill."

  • "The best thing going for the restaurant is the view, which is better than the River Cafe's. There is also considerably more seating so reservations are easier to get and for events like New Years you can avoid the tunnels. However I had issues with the service. I had made some special requests 2 months prior to my booking and followed up with frequent phone calls, but was only told that my request could not be fufilled 2 months later when I personally came in to check if everything was ready to go. This lack of communication is the only reason I can't give them 4* stars for service and can't recommend them as "Good for Groups". Otherwise it's excellent! *For comparison 4 and 5 star service would be the River Cafe and le Bernadin."

  • "They should try to sit people with little children away from the adult crowd. Today's parenting skills are lacking and show no concern for other people who are dining. Loud children who walk around are ignored by their parents and upset those of us who are trying to enjoy our experience. Perhaps the waiter could tell the parents to keep their children seated. We had the most obnoxious family group seated in back of our table! They never spoke to their kids about proper behavior during the entire meal. I don't understand why these children were not in bed asleep or why they were eating at such a late hour. The food and service here is outstanding. Too bad it was spoiled by this."

  • "Located at the Hyatt Regency Hotel, the setting overlooking the Manhattan is wonderful. They have indoor and outdoor tables, but it’s the outdoor ones that give it the dreamy atmosphere. It’s steak and seafood here are fabulous, and frankly, it’s quite up to the quality it should be for their prices. The wine list is very extensive, too. A great place to celebrate my gf Gigi's birthday last Dec 27th."

I've had dinner several times and was not disappointed. If anything sit at the bar have a cocktail , order from the bar menu to start."
