Beautiful terrace with wonderful view in the heart of Old Montreal. Very fun atmosphere for all ages. Treat yourself for at least a cocktail.

Les serveurs en t- shirt autour du bar en train de discuter et de rire des clients aux tables, c'est inacceptable. Les serveuses étaient compétentes.

Probably the nicest view of montreal on this rooftop terrace. Food was good, not exceptional and price is accordingly to the location and the view. Nice place to go for lunch/a drink.

Amazing rooftop with a fabulous view of the city. The menu was great, the staff was really nice and attentive, and the music was bumping. Just what we were looking for for a Sunday Funday brunch in Old Montreal.

Le lieu est magnifique. En fait, la vue est très belle sur le Vieux-Montréal. Personnel sympa, peut être un peu trop décontract... cuisine ok, sans plus. On y a va pour la vue, et on y mange correctement.

Classy terrasse right in Old Montreal with a beautiful view. We went there for brunch and found it to be comparable to other breakfast places in Montreal. With the view, it was more than worth the value! It was a beautiful day and the terrasse we sat under the movable awning so that we didn't bake in the sun.

Was my first time visiting Montreal and am extremely happy I stumbled across Terrasse william gray, as you enter the restuarant you get an astonishing view of the port and all it encompasses, the food was delicious (I had the burger de bouef) but was hard to find my mouth with the view I had surrounding me. The service was on point, I never had to wait long and everyone was a pleasure to deal with, definitely will visit again and inform my friends about this gem thanks again to all the staff for a wonderful and spectacular lunch.

superb view of the Old Port, expensive but good drinks, and surprisingly very good food, (try the "PÂTES AU LAIT DE COCO ET COURGE") I would go back, the service was very attentive. Very noisy, but I guess it is part of the experience.

Hotel is nice.
View of old port is really good.
Brunch Menu is very limited. Even for adults.
Forget bringing kids, they will not like the food at all.

Service was terrible. The staff was simply not ready for a Sunday brunch at all. The kitchen was missing all kinds of basics, no mayo, no jam for roasts, ran out of hot chocolate the day before, staff walking around with their own Starbucks coffee, their clothes all wrinkled and some looking very tired.
They even served iced tea with tea bags in ice water... took an hour to infuse or dissolve sugar... tea bags were good quality though...

Food was cold.
Drinks were not good.
Laughable, They offered to not charge to replace the cold fries! How nice of them!

We had really high expectations, badly disappointed.
Hotel seems nice and view is worth it.
Food and service for brunch way below par.
Too bad, could be great.

Maybe it a bad day or something, but we can not recommend it based on our experience.

We came for brunch and were disappointed with the very limited choice on the menu. No fresh fruit/yoghurt, no choices of smoothie (only smoothie of the day). Only 4-5 items to choose from. I didn't enjoy my smoked salmon benedict as felt the beetroot and kale didn't suit the dish. There was only a sliver of salmon on the plate. Service was efficient and friendly, but would not ever come back for brunch as really didn't enjoy the food! Great views though!

Went on a Friday afternoon at 2pm. Super loud for afternoon. Was looking for a more relaxing place. It's very happening, pretentious crowd, wanna be seen crowd . But it's a rooftop so it was nice to be out in open. Food was excellent but super expensive. Pitcher of mediocre sangria is 55$$!

We were seated on the terrace for 15 minutes. No one came to tell us hello or even get our drink order. After not being acknowledged, we left. It was also extremely hot and uncomfortable. Would not return or recommend.

We went for brunch.
The menu is very limited.
We were the only ones there at 11:00 AM on a Saturday.
Clearly, this is a place for drinks at night, not to have breakfast or brunch.
We ended leaving the terrace and had brunch downstairs at street level, which was very good.

Bruyant et médiocre au niveau gustatif, partiellement compensé par un personnel attentionné et sympathique. Il est clair qu’on ne vient pas là pour bien manger ni pour se reposer ou discuter au calme avec ses amis. On vient pour la vue et c’est tout.

Super terrasse,politesse extrêmement bien des placiers et serveurs, chaleur mais bien protégé par les toits
Nourriture une peu ordinaire
Tartare à $27: superbe présentation mais aucun goût (j’en cuisine des meilleurs),les frites très bonnes mais la salade meslun achetée chez Costco semble très très ordinaire...
C’est pas 4chips qui influencent ....donc dispendieux en rapport avec le bon goût....
Le burger est copieux mais aussi sans originalité .....pour le prix
Bol de saumon a semblé combler notre amie...
Ambiance superbe ....
On y retournera pour l’ambiance....
