“Great scenery”
Reviewed December 2, 2012

We were there in the afternoon, and into the evening. The view from the Vu was just wonderful. Especially the evening view of Manhattan, with all the lights. Very spectacular, and well worth the visit.

“Worth a visit!”
Reviewed November 20, 2012

Vu was a great- and worth a trip even if you're not stay at the hotel. Places with a view like this often skimp on quality, relying on ambiance to carry the customer experience. Not Vu, the service and food was great!

“Room with a view”
Reviewed October 18, 2012

This restaurant at the Hyatt Regency on the water in Jersey City has a great view of Manhattan. I have never ade a reservation at lunch and have always been able to get a table as the case today. When I arrived, it was empty and when I left it was probably 75% full. I was there for a business lunch and the space is perfect for that. The tables are large and the noise level is conducive to having a conversation. Both my guest and I had the crab cake burger ($20) which was really very good (no filler!). We each ordered it without the bun though it did come with fries which were also very good. We each had a diet pepsi. The bill came to $60 including tip. The PATH station is right outside for transportation back to Gotham.

“Outstanding view and meal”
Reviewed October 18, 2012

We chose the Vu for the VIEW and it has to be the best nighttime skyline view of Manhattan! Directly across from the World Trade Center--very nice! We were very pleased that the food was outstanding too!!! The menu is not huge but the entrees are varied and should appeal to most diners. We would heartily recommend the Vu!

“Over priced, typical convention hotel food”
Reviewed October 14, 2012

Food is overpriced and... well horrible. The sliders were blah, just meat and bread, the crab cake sandwich just as boring.
