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.

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.

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.

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!

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!

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 .

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!
