While the overlook and views of the ports and pier with the Ferris wheel are nice the quality of the food and service override the scenery. The roasted squash main dish is rediculously impractical to eat. Instead of scooping out the roasted squash or cutting...out the edible squash meat you’re given an entire half of squash intact, on a slippery plate making it impossible to cut. Because the squash is in tact it’s too hard to cut out enough to call it more than a wasteful starter. If this review makes it back to the kitchen please urge the cooks to rethink how this dish is presented. Being one of the few options for my vegetarian husband he was unable to eat much and pretty dissapointed, especially since we still had to pay full price.More

Great view, less than average food, hefty prices! If you’re up for a cocktail on a nice rooftop patio, sure thing. But don’t expect haute dining though, the food is neither great, nor well presented.

Extremely hard to make Reservations but after pushing and patiently waiting we got one. Got seated down and yes views breathing taking but Menu was not okay. There were only 3 options available for dinner and none of them to our liking. After months of...planning my husband birthday trip and looking forward to this restaurant, we were very disappointed. Unfortunately I can't say we would recommend it now unless the Menu changes!More

We stayed at the Hotel William Gray and visited the Terrace almost everyday for an afternoon snack or late evening cocktail. The views are what people come for but the drinks and snacks are very good and the staff are extremely friendly and helpful. We...watched the fireworks one evening and they had a few very nice specials on offer. They do insist you have a reservation which is a tad inconvenient when your staying at the hotel on the 7th floor and the checkin in at the front of the building on the ground floor, calling the number when busy does nothing to help this problem. Plan ahead and you’ll be rewarded with excellent views and some really tasty food.More

The Terrace William Gray offers an extraordinary view of of the city. I got to know a lot of the locals in Montreal and every single person I met told me this hotel rooftop has the best view of the city during sunset. They were...not lying. Honestly, my head was on a swivel taking in the sights and sounds because you get a complete view of the city around you. I ended up getting bite and some drinks, just sitting there for hours, looking out at the city. The rooftop is a great place for a family night out, date night, friend hang out, or even just a solo adventure.More

Wow. Had an absolutely spectacular evening. Went out to celebrate with family as our daughter is leaving for six months to volunteer abroad. Views were truly breathtaking. Our waitress went above and beyond. My daughter has celiac and the waitress checked on everything and was...incredibly kind. We had a pitcher of drinks. Lovely. We had duck, salads, tartare, grilled cauliflower, red wine. All fantastic. Bar was super busy so waitress didn’t want us to wait and got the wine herself and poured. What a hard worker, professional and super nice. This restaurant could teach others how it is done!!! We will return and encourage you to try it. Great experience all around. Memorable. Thank you so much.More
