I've eaten at this restaurant many times for dinner but this was the first time I tried it for lunch. They have a nice little buffet with soup, salad and interesting flat bread pizza's. I'll definitely be back.

We arrived in Holland mid afternoon so had a very late lunch here. We thought the hostess was a little less than welcoming but the waitress was friendly and attentive. The food was very good.

Not a good experience for us. Someone on the street recommended them for the view. We called and asked about reservations and were told that reservations were not needed. We went there ahead of the dinner crowd and when we got there we were told that all the window tables were reserved and they wanted to seat us in the... More

The food and service were great. We recommend any of the pizzas. And the asparagus appetizer was wonderful.

I took my wife and daughter here on a beautiful Saturday afternoon for lunch. We sat outside in the shade and enjoyed the nice view of downtown Holland from the top of the CityVu Bistro. The decor and food were both modern and very good. The BBQ Bloody Mary I ordered was excellent and well as the spinach artichoke dip... More

On a rainy day, my boyfriend and I visited Holland and ate dinner here on a slow weekday night. Service was personal, but we were one of maybe 3-5 tables there. One of the best salads is here and I wrote this review just for it- Spinach Almond. It is a bit pricey at 7 bucks but its probably the... More

We recently had dinner at CityVu. We were seated promptly. Our waitress even put the shades down for us as the sun was in our faces. We were given menus and water, asked if we wanted something to start with. We had barely looked at the menu so we asked for a few minutes. We waited and waited for our... More

Great location downtown Holland, but the food was ok. View nice if you like looking at the power plant.

We were told to check out this place for their flatbread and the view. Neither disappointed. It wasn't too pricy (typical of a fancier restaurant- the flat bread put us back $12/each), which we were surprised about given the fact that it seemed like a hip/up and coming place to eat with parchment paper on the tables. The only thing... More

We have been several times and have never been disappointed. The offering is fresh and done with precision. The flat breads are a signature, but don't overlook the specials. The ONLY reason this did not get a '5' is the hostess is inexperienced and reservations seem to confuse them. Not a good first impression, but I have learned to 'stay... More
