Terrasse William Gray
Located on the 8th floor of the William Gray Hotel, Terrasse William Gray is the place to be to soak up the summer season. With a breathtaking view of Place Jacques-Cartier, the St. Lawrence River and Montreal’s Ferris wheel, our terrace offers refreshing summer wines, cocktails and beers.
Relaxing and laid-back during lunchtime turn into lively evenings as soon as the sun sets. Our terrace is heated for your comfort on cooler evenings and equipped with retractable awnings to protect you from the sun when it gets too hot. Experience Old Montreal beauty and unique atmosphere on our elegant rooftop terrace.
Grilled octopus dish size was unreasonably small for the price.
Very nice. Nice wine and winner. The only bad side was the 17$ drink my friend ordered that was awful...
Everything was perfect, to my surprise the seasoning of the food was just perfect and you can taste every single ingredient.

Une très belle terrasse en hauteur offrant une vue imprenable sur le Vieux-Port.
La nourriture était chère pour la qualité et quantité offertes. (Menu Brunch - œufs Bénédicte, casserole, 2 cafés au lait = 52$ plus pourboire
Le volume de la musique était trop élevé.
Le service était moyen en raison des cafés commandés avant le repas et qui sont arrivés après le service.

Great view. The place is not really clean and ustensils are due to change for real. Food is ok for everyday dining. Choose another place for a special occasion. Good ambiance, not too noisy. Service is really slow.

I enjoyed the views from the Terrace. Food was great, we had the pita chips and dip to start, and then the orecchiette and the chickpea croquettes. The croquettes were really delish, while we found the orecchiette to lack some salt. Drinks were good to. Overall I recommend visiting the place when you are in Montreal and enjoy the view.
The foodbus good the drinks are perfect had a good Time and thé service also was fast I will recommend

Birthday lunch. Beautiful view, creative dishes, friendly service. Can't believe it was my first time here! The heaters will extend the use of the terrace for some time still. Definitely recommend. P.S. Stop by Café Olimpico downstairs afterwards!

Une magnifique soirée pour une occasion spéciale. Un lieu magique où nous sommes restés pour le cocktail et le repas avec bonheur. Les huîtres étaient extraordinaires. La nourriture très bonne. Mais le Wow est sûrement l'ambiance, la qualité remarquable du service de tous les serveurs présents ce soir là et en particulier de notre serveur attitré Cédric. Un service de grande classe, attentionné et délicat, aux petits soins pour que notre soirée soit réussie. Et ce fut le cas. Nous allons recommander chaleureusement cet endroit et la vue magnifique; nous serons certainement de retour. Un coup de cœur.
Bonjour Tochapa, Merci pour votre beau commentaire 5 étoiles et les compliments adressés à Cedric! C’est un plaisir de savoir que votre expérience chez nous était un succès et ce à tout les niveaux ! Ce sera avec plaisir que nous attendrons votre prochaine visite, Sincèrement,
I had high expectations and was disappointed. For such a reputable hotel the food should be better, high prices and small portion and not really tasty. Salad had no dressing, beef tartar was on the dry side. I must admit the chutney that comes with the octopus, had good flavours. When the hi lights is the chutney and the french fries, its a let down. The view was fantastic, friendly staff, covid safety in place. Drinks are reasonably priced, go have a drink, enjoy the view. Think twice before ordering food.

The service was not good and they force us to give tips.
Unfortunately from the beginning, even we had reservation, they told us that we have after uon hour and a half because they have reservations!!!???
Hope they change this bad policy

Service très courtois; nourriture (pieuvre grillée) excellente; vin blanc pas froid car reçu quelques heures avant mais empressement du serveur à le mettre sur glace

Great view and service. Unfortunately it was only a brunch menu so we didn’t get to try some of the dishes we were hoping to but I would go again for sure.
Hi Jennie, Thank you for your great 5 star review. We do serve brunch on the week-end, but we have our full menu available from Monday to Friday and week end evenings. We hope you will be back to try it ! best
Fantastic location and amazing eggs Benedict! Also, pitchers are 60$ but are worth it!
La vue est magnifique, le personnel est serviable et très sympa. Les plats sont bons, créatifs mais pas exceptionnels. Une table recommandable, surtout en ce moment où l’on apprécie manger dehors, en terrasse.
William Grey is always a safe bet for a classy rooftop terrace experience in the Old Port, with great views of some famous landmarks.
The ambiance is a bit cold though. Drinks are expensive and the cocktails are nothing special. Food is generally quite good; I ordered a charcuterie tray which was well presented and diverse as well as a salmon tataki which was extremely flavourful.
Great for groups of friends!
Hello Sebastien, Thank you for your great review and your kind words! It is a pleasure to read that you are happy with your experience in our establishment! We will be awaiting your next visit with great pleasure, Kindly,
Super Nice place staff are very friendly love it
A perfect place to have a date or to chill with friends
Very disappointed. We reserved for 8 people to celebrate our daughters Confirmation. They squeezed us in a corner at a high top table that would barely fit 6 on a regular day. When we asked to be moved we were told, sorry those places are reserved...as if we hadn't also reserved. Food was okay, nothing to brag about. Our appetizers were good to share, but our main courses lacked any wow. If we had been seated properly we would have maybe enjoyed our time more and actually stayed for coffee and dessert, but as it was, we could not wait to leave!
Everything was good but the food. Only go there for drinks and appetizers. Do not order a meal.
It was our 10 year anniversary and we decided to stay at the hotel and start our afternoon off on the roof top terrace - it was beautiful and service was great! Cocktails were just fantastic!
We were told by our serve that we had to order food because she didn’t have her license to serve alcohol. We didn’t appreciate that especially not being told in advance before being seated at one of those tables. We ordered fries and truffle mayo which was delicious but not the point. The terrace was almost packed but the vibe was boring. We were there around 2pm on a Sunday
Everything is great, food is good. The only comment I have is with regards to covid safety. Please ensure that all waiters/waitresses have the proper mask. Our waitress had a disposable mask on but for some reason , her nose was showing. Also, although there are plexiglass in between tables ....between the bar and the tables and people passing—-not quite sure if the social distancing is respected .
Hi Luisa, Thank you for taking the time to share your last experience with us. We are happy to read that your overall experience was great! We take security procedures & social distancing very seriously. We are sorry that the waitress that was assigned to your table was not wearing her mask correctly but i can confirm this is a isolated situation. I can confirm to you that we respect all measures imposed by the public health. We hope we will have the chance to welcome you back soon Best
Service et saveur des plats moyen. Mais la vue est impressionnante.
COVID-safe: We appreciate the safety precautions and protocols here including plastic protectors between tables.
Great selection of food, abundant drink menu. Great spot for brunch/lunch with views of the Montreal city, and moderate level of noise/music.
Hi Aimee, Thank you for your 5-star review and for noticing the efforts we put in for COVID-19 situation! It is a pleasure to read that you are happy with your experience in our establishment! We will be awaiting your next visit with great pleasure, Kindly, Véronique F&B Coordinator.
The overall experience was as good as usual, but the food was "off", I took the burger and it was dry and overcooked. Appaet from that, William Grey remain one of the best terrasse in Montréal.
Hi Jabba, Thank you very much for taking the time to share your last experience with us. We are sorry to read that the food was not great on you last visit. We truly hope we will have the chance to welcome you back so we can make it up to you best Véronique F&B coordinator
Good vibe! Good service and really friendly. I recommend
Hello Maxime, Thank you for your great review and your kind words! We are pleased to learn you enjoyed your experience with us to the fullest. We are looking forward to your next visit, Regards, Véronique F&B Coordinator.
Here I go with my foodie sister to our monthly brunch at Terrasse William Gray. We are greeted enthusiastically. I was surprised by the quickest and efficient service the staff. Sadly, the brunch menu is very is limited. Every dish is with meat except one was a sweet dish. I asked for the casserole, and to omit the grilled sausages with a mimosa. My sister took the tartinade with egg and ham, side salad plus the smoothie of the day. Our food and drinks arrived in a jiffy. Honestly, the food and the drinks weren't extraordinary. It wasn't good but it wasn't bad either. Also, it was quickest brunch I ever had. I guess the portion was small. What was frustrating is the price, my casserole consisted grilled sweet potatoes, one poached egg and salad (I omitted the grilled sausages); they didn't modify the price or give me something else instead ( like other restaurants would give me a grilled tomato or something else). So they charged me the full price for my casserole. I give good stars for service but food and price bring down the stars. On a good note, the view is beautiful!
