This entire restaurant, bar, and hotel lobby has to be one of the best views of Manhattan. I ordered the avacado toast with a salad, both were delicious.

I have to say, this is the most beautiful view of Manhattan. As a Midwesterner, this was a real treat, to say the least. As for the restaurant, the staff is friendly enough and the service was good. The lunch cheeseburger I ordered was very very good along with seasoned fries and a salad. I'm sure what I was paying... More

Looking out toward lower Manhattan, with only the Hudson River standing between the hotel and the buildings, the view is spectacular! For breakfast, the Vu serves a la carte or offers a beautiful, fresh, delicious buffet. Fruits, juices, cereals both hot and... More

Fantastic view of NYC. The menu is a little pricey but for special occasions it is worth it. This is one of my "Go To" restaurants when I have company. I also enjoy relaxing in the cocktail lounge with friends in general. It also offers enjoyable views.

Wonderful views of Manhattan from the Vu restaurant at the Hyatt Regency hotel on the New Jersey waterfront, right next to the PATH Exchange Place station. We stayed at the Hyatt Regency hotel a few years ago and loved it. We remembered in particular the views from the restaurant and whilst not staying at the hotel this time round, booked... More

The Vu restaurant in the Hyatt Hotel, Jersey City offers good food at a reasonable price. Jersey City is just opposite downtown Manhattan, New York just across the Hudson. It is an area which has been very well re-developed. From the local Esplanade you will get a fabulous view of downtown Manhattan as shown in the photographs. The Hyatt Hotel... More

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.

Thank mfletch
