I came here for the first time to celebrate my fiancé birthday and so far the view it's beautiful, but the food wasn't my best served. I also didn't like the fact we got rushed towards the end, no dessert menu was brought to us other than the check to pay for the service.

The view and service were amazing. I was so hoping something I ordered would really wow me but from appetizer to dessert it was just average. The food was good, the drinks were okay but for the almost 200 dollars the 2 of us spent I didn't feel like I got this AMAZING deal. I enjoyed ordering pizza and having the same view from my room.

We sat for 10 minutes and had to ask for a server to come to table and the restaurant was not busy. Chicken I had was dry although salad was good. The view was amazing. I would go back for a drink and appetizer but too pricey for quality of food.

We had a great meal with a fantastic view! The food was original and delicious. We ordered the mac & cheese as an appetizer and it was amazing. The pretzel and bacon crust was so yummy.

Service and view was great. Food was a bit lacking. Tomatoes in the burrata appetizer were almost frozen they were so cold. I would go for cocktails and deserts in the future, just not the mains.

I took my husband for his birthday; requested a window table and was given the best seat in the house. There isn't a bad seat in the place. The service was accommodating and helpful. And the food was perfect.

Worst service ever! Had a reservation...waited...15 minutes finally got water...30 minutes later our food order was taken....60 minutes later our food arrived. The table next to us was in and out with food in under 45 minutes. Never going again no matter how great the view is!

At the Vu there is a spectacular view of lower Manhattan, which is made more enjoyable by the excellent cuisine. We tried the CRISPY CHICKEN SCHNITZEL & LANCASTER COUNTY FRENCH CUT CHICKEN BREAST, both delicious. The staff is happy to try to accommodate all of your needs. We'll return to try more entrees.

Great view of Manhattan and the traffic on the river, and to watch a snow storm blow in. Beer flight was good, as was the tomato soup. The charcuterie and cheese was uninspired. Desert was bland and under seasoned.

I was very worried after reading the reviews about this establishment from other people. After experiencing first hand I must say this restaurant exceeded my expectations. When you first walk in you up the escalators and walk straight ahead. As you proceed down there is a nice bar in the center of the room which was very good. Me and my gf ordered a drink while we were waiting to be seated. Beers were average priced $6-$7 and my gf got a margarita $14 which was a little steep but they use all top shelf liquor which was great! When our table was ready within 15 min the hostess came to get us from the bar. She brought us to our table which was right in front of these huge windows that have the most mesmerizing views of Manhattan and the new freedom tower. I can not say it enough how gorgeous this view was. As far as for the food they have a wife range of options that can please almost anyone. I ordered the pork chop over polenta which was amazing! It's huge in size so if you do decide to order make sure you are hungry. The sauce it came with was very sweet which was very nice just but not my favorite. My gf ordered a crab cake with polenta and Mac and cheese. Crab cake was possibly the best crab cake either of us have ever had. Filled with mostly all crab meat and minimal breadcrumbs which to me is how it should be. Overall I would give this restaurant 9/10 and for food 8/10. Will definitely be back.

AWFUL! Never again!
After having a terrible meal we were then charged $35 for parking for 90 minutes. The parking attendant explained to be sure to get our ticket validated before we leave when we arrived.
We did so & that was the “discounted price”. We were never told we would be charged for parking even though we were dining at the location.

The food was terrible. It tasted as though it was cheap room service. Also overpriced just like room service!

Small portions & high prices.
The crab cake had no taste & the lava cake was the size of a peanut butter cup.

Highly disappointed.

Luckily we had a view!

Wasted $200 on a meal & came home hungry & aggravated.

Terrible service.

My daughter's salmon was not cooked, I asked for hamburgers "well done" for my son and I and they were cooked around the edges only, pink/red the rest. The waitress gave us another salmon but then I complained that my hamburger was not well done, she offered another one but I declined and then I realized that my sons hamburger was not fully cooked. She then gave us 25% off . I didn't feel like making a big deal and just left without more complaints. Disappointed.
