Many a night after the day was done, my wife and I enjoyed relaxing at Vu. While not inexpensive, we found the food to be good, reasonably priced drinks and the waitstaff was very friendly.

We had 2 meals at the Vu Restaurant. Dinner consisted of burgers and fries. They were great! Great flavor and cooked to perfection. Breakfast ($50 for 2 people) consisted of a buffet of eggs, bacon, potatoes, oatmeal, pastries and fruit. For the cost, you'd think there would be more to choose from (I've stayed at other high price places where... More

Menu is small but each dish is delicious. Great service, great food, and amazing views of Manhattan.

2 friends had dinner here recently. We intentionally arrived early, just as they were beginning Dinner service (5:30pm) because we had a time-constraint. The service was professional. The ambience is lovely. The view is terrific. The entrees run in the $35 range. We opted to share an appetizer, and then each have a vegetarian entree (which, of course, is less... More

For an excellent view of New York, Vu has one of the best views in Jersey City. The Sunday brunch food was poor and the service worse. I will not return.

This restaurant located in the Hyatt at exchange place is a really great place to spend a quiet evening. The view is great, the ambience is relaxed and quiet. The service staff is excellent. They were very attentive and really seemed to care to make it a great experience for us. The food is fine as well.

I stay at the Hyatt in business about four or five times a year, and we usually host at least one lunch at Vu. I have never been disappointed yet. The food is reliably good, service fine, and the view of course great. The breakfast buffet is also quite nice.

Great spot for breakfast and lunch; get a seat by the window and watch the boats sail by. The octopus salad is spectacular

I stay frequently at this hotel for business and have had dinner and drinks here on numerous occasions. As with other hotel bars in major metro areas, the prices are high, but overall I think it is a good place to eat.

You can't beat the view of NYC and Lady Liberty from any table --- the crab cake burger was delish!! Service was a bit slow due to unexpected weather that brought a large group in for lunch. Our waiter was attentive and offered great suggestions for must see & do in both NYC and Jersey City. The lunch menus was... More
