“Love the View”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

We have been to this place several times both with friends and as a couple. Every time we go the food is great and the views even better. The signature dish is a flatbread pizza with great toppings in combinations I would not have thought of. For those who like a drink with dinner there is a full bar which we love because it carries local craft beers. Make sure you save room for a piece of the carrot cake which is by far one of the best desserts I have ever eaten.

The furnishings are sleek and chic with a hip atmosphere and an outdoor patio for the warmer months. Although they don't take reservations for small parties, we have never had to wait..
I think our favorite part of City Vu Bistro is that we live close by and can make it over there often. It has become our go-to place when we want an elegant meal in a beautiful place.

“Great Meal in Mod atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2013

The food overall at this restaurant is excellent. The spinach salad with raisins and almonds was very tasty. The chicken dumplings appetizer good as well. The Asian beef with noodles was also done well. The wine list is good and reasonably priced. We enjoyed the hot cookie with ice cream dessert. The atmosphere in modern and comfortable. We enjoyed the outside dinning at sunset, which is a great way to finish a summer day.

“Delicious and chic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013 via mobile

Delicious option when visiting the beach. We loved finding a chic restaurant with interesting takes on classics. I ordered Tikka Masala, a modern interpretation on an old Indian classic dish. And a flatbread pizza made for a great app to share. We would definitely return here. Drink menu was also delightful, and we had terrific service!

“Modern Vibe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2013

This was our second time dining at City Vu and we will go back whenever in the Holland area. Holland is not locked into the past anymore with the opening of this cool and modern hotel. The furnishings are sleek and contemporary. The view is from the top floor of the hotel and there is an outside terrace. The nice thing about the menu is the variety. It offers appetizers, salads and pizzas for lighter fare. Full dinner entrees are also available. We have had several different things on the menu and found everything prepared to our liking. Service was great and we only had to wait a few minutes to be seated. If you are looking for something unexpected in Holland that you won't want to miss City Vu Bistro. We found downtown Holland to be bustling on a Saturday night.

“This place seems "out of place"”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

Don't let the title fool you as it was a very good experience but this ultra modern hotel/restaurant seem out of place in historic downtown Holland. I had a flat bread as that's what they;re known for and it was fine. My date had salmon which was delicious, the service was very attentive, we ate on the outdoor patio upstairs and the only thing missing was some background music. They had the speakers out there and musci was playing inside but nothing outside. Definitely worth checking out.
