Liquor: Decent selection of wines and specialty cocktails. Bar scene is vibrant.
The Vu restaurant at the Hyatt Regency offers one of the best waterfront views of lower Manhattan and the World trade Center from New Jersey.
The restaurant's floor to ceiling windows allow for unobstructed views of the NYC Skyline and of the Statue of Liberty.
Best time to come is immediately after sunset when the lights of Manhattan start to twinkle and the Manhattan skyline lights up to provide a beautiful backdrop to your evening dining experience.
The cocktail lounge has a vibrant 75 seat bar with tables and sofas and a beautiful view of the Statue of Liberty. The lounge menu serves light fare.
In a neighborhood where there are many fine dining restaurants with excellent food, and while the food at the Vu is decent, the reason to come here is for the ambiance and world class waterfront view.
Some of the fine dining amenities are lacking including the absence of table clothes and an extensive selection of menu items.
Service is friendly and attentive
The Vu is kid-friendly and offers a children's menu.
