Cocktail Bar
The Willard Rooftop Lounge, Raleigh's Best Rooftop Bar of 2022, offers signature craft cocktails and inspired bites alongside stunning views of downtown Raleigh.

The centerpiece of The Willard is the Large Terrace with panoramic views of the Raleigh skyline and a dual-sided fireplace surrounded by comfortable, yet modern, seating. Heaters make our outdoor spaces comfortable year-round. Inside, a 22-seat bar is the focal point of the dining room, while Skyview Boardroom offers a unique dining experience for 6-12 guests.

The Willard’s cocktail menu playfully leans into Raleigh’s nickname as the City of Oaks, offering signature craft cocktails aged in oak barrels and cocktails where smoke is a key ingredient.

The seasonal food menu, crafted by Chef Kyle Teears, includes shareables like papas bravas and charcuterie, as well as salads, Flatbreads, and entrees like Cherokee Trout and Steak Frites.
Located on the 7th floor of the AC Hotel Raleigh Downtown in the Glenwood South district.

    First and foremost, the Willard is a very nice establishment. My wife and I went for the first time to celebrate our wedding anniversary. While I was very impressed with the restaurant and the rooftop view, that’s where it ended. While I’m not necessarily upset, I’m essentially ambivalent and probably won’t ever return. For starters, the parking situation is a complete disaster, there’s nowhere to park and the streets surrounding the building are crowded and there are a lot of one-way roads. We circled about five times before we found a spot to park. Secondly, there is hardly any signage directing you where to go in order to get to the Willard so, you have to walk into the hotel and ask the employee at the front desk. Clearly they get asked this all the time and the response that we got was filled with contempt. When we sat down at our table in the bar area, our server took forever to come by the table to greet us and after we ordered drinks (which are very expensive), we ordered food. The food was dropped off by another employee and our server was nowhere in sight. The food was mediocre at best and I told my wife that we can finish our food and drinks, leave, and if we’re still hungry we’ll go next door to Char-Grill for burgers. Overall, I was not impressed with the food, drinks, service, or general attitude of the Willard. Like I said, I’m not upset about it but, I will most likely never return.

    Booked Easter Jazz Brunch on the rooftop. Arrived at reservation time. Group ahead did not have reservations but seated promptly. We were then given choice of lounge chairs or a back inside table. I booked the rooftop patio table and jazz band. So we quickly explained to our server and were led to the patio- which had many tables open . ??

    Shrimp and grits very tasty but heavy on the salt. Shrimp is flavorful by itself, but the red sauce was extremely salty. Fruit compote could have fresher strawberries not cut so small. Fried chicken biscuit: slightly overcooked and breading fried just shy of burning. Not an atmosphere for small children.

    The menu has changed to not have good options for vegans. Also my friend said the shrimp appetizer was too salty. We also were seated around the back even though there were open tables in the main area of the rooftop when we got there and when we were done.

    The food was more tapas style, but very tasted. They had gluten free options, which we important to me. The cocktails were wonderful. The server was very attentive. I just didn’t like the style of the seats at the tables. They seemed like lawn lounge chairs & not particularly comfortable.

    Good food hostess was amazing enjoyed the evening. Almonds and charcuterie board along with the beef tartare were delicious! Smoked old fashioned was excellent. There was a line of 40 people to use the telescopes so that could have been managed better but it wasn’t part of the restaurant.

    Evening, though I was appreciative that you were able to push my reservation back, I was very disappointed when my son came home to say the service was so poor. I have dined with you many times and would never have recommended he bring his girlfriend. I do understand it was probably a busy night and besides no alcohol, I am sure they didn't order a lot, I do hope that was not the cause for the inadequate service he received. I am choosing not to publicly review, however I do hope you address

    NEVER again! I paid for the Valentines Day Experience which included ONE dessert to be shared and 2 glasses of champagne for $40.00. First it took at least 15 minutes before anyone came to the table to greet and take our order. When I said I paid for the Valentine's Day Experience, it took another 20 minutes for the waiter to being a SLIVER of chocolate tart which was cold and hard. 10 minutes later 2 glasses of what tasted like cheap champagne were delivered. Between the service and what we received for the "Experience", it definitely was NOT worth $40. My fiance and I were initially interested in using the Willard as a wedding venue but after our "experience", we'll pass.

    We got the champagne and dessert pairing special for Valentine's day deal even though we went the day after Valentine's day. We had chocolate mousse dessert. It was very rich but the pureed strawberries on top balanced it out. The ambanice was just the right amount of romantic. Rooftop was superb!

    My boyfriend and I made reservations for the lounge during the first week in January in hopes of enjoying early evening drinks/appetizers on Feb 14th (Valentine's Day). We'd never been and thought it would be a nice start to a romantic evening. We arrived on time and dressed nicely for our 6pm reservation. We were asked our preference for outdoor or indoor lounge seating. It was a bit chilly so we opted for indoors. We were escorted past several open tables facing the beautiful skyline and taken to a spot set up along a short wall with one chair facing a semi-transparent conference room and the other chair facing a staff-only door. My boyfriend joked and said, "Does the manager here know your ex?" We felt understandably slighted of a beautiful view. We politely asked the staff if we could change seats to any one of the many vacant tables with a view of the city. Staff seemed confused and left to ask. Upon their return, we were ushered to an even smaller enclosed room that was decorated for Valentine's with cheap blow-up balloons and ribbons of pink, plastic flowers on high-top tables. It was clearly marked for a party later in the evening. We were seated with one other couple in this otherwise vacant room. (The view offered us was now one overlooking the alley alongside the hotel.) I ordered one of their signature drinks (margherita). It arrived in the identical stemware as my water glass--skinny, tall, and with no salt or sugar rim. It was watered down. My boyfriend is a big fan of Old Fashioneds. He was not impressed with his drink either. Our shrimp appetizer was decent but we opted to leave and go elsewhere downtown. The experience was disappointing on many levels as we were also scouting for an upcoming reception venue. Definitely crossed off our list.

    They were awesome with service. We went for Galentines Day. I have food allergies and they acoomodated me easily. The outdoor heaters and fireplace made sitting outside managable at 45 degrees. I don't recommend sitting outside if it is below this.

    Our reservation was 9p on Saturday night for a party of 4 Just to grab apps and cocktails. No one greeted the table after 15 mins. We informed the host and shortly after someone came by looking sweaty and disheveled. Seems he was working the party and serving our table. Took about 40 mins to receive our first round of drinks and 1 appetizer. Waiter was spread thin and would forget to bring water etc but understandable considering he’s on the other side of the restaurant tending to the event. Not well planned out. We order another round of drinks and check due to tardiness throughout the night at 10:22…finally paid the bill at 11p. The server was sweet and hospitality. Another order of appetizers came out on the house to accommodate about halfway after we ordered our second round. Would come again at the bar. Not for table service.

    It was restaurant week-that being said, we all agreed the Willard is not a restaurant. It would be a great place to enjoy a cocktail with the view. They only have a handful of proper tables. They have small bites. We had to ask for the Restaurant Week menu!? Even though our reservation was for a table-there were 4 of us-there was none available for us at 6pm-why take reservations? We had a cocktail (which were good and our Server was bubbly and nice) and walked to another spot for dinner.

    Interesting evening. Had a reservation but they tried to seat us at a small two top with patio chairs. We ended up changing tables 3 times. Asked to sit at an empty table and server said we had to sit at another one. Fire alarm went off for about 30 minutes but staff said it was just an overcooked steak. Firemen walked into restaurant. Staff seemed scattered both figuratively and literally. No offer of any service recovery. Several dishes broken by either guests or staff (accidentally), but unusual to hear more than one dish shattering at a meal. Ambiance hard to gauge due to all the drama. However, cozy and chic with great views of the city. Parking is a guessing game. Would return because food was very good, desserts were awesome.

We were told the outside patio was booked and they could not seat us there. There were at least 10 empty tables during our visit. Several people came to the bar, ordered drinks, and then took them outside to sit down. Wasn't an issue with staffing, as the outside wait staff was hanging out by the bar since they did not have much outside. Waste of a great area.

    We checked out the Willard for triangle restaurant week. Our reservation was a bit later - at 9:30 PM on a Friday night. When we arrived early, we were greeted and sat at the bar with prompt service. The drinks were well-crafted and delicious. Our reservation opened on time and we were sat near the bar at a Tall table with a good view of the city. The appetizer shrimp had a delicious bourbon sauce. I wanted to drink it right out of the bowl! My husband had Papas Fritas with a sauce comparable to a Yum Yum sauce. Our entrées were delicious. I had the salmon with risotto and fresh zucchini underneath. It was perfectly crisp and tender. My husband had the fillet with fries and it was cooked Exactly to his preferred temperature. The desserts were very good. I had the flourless torte, which was a ganache- style melt-in-your-mouth chocolate. My husband had the pecan pie which he said was very flavorful and not too sweet. Overall, it was good service, delicious food, and a great atmosphere. The regular menu options are a little pricey, but you're paying for the ambience and the food is well crafted. Although we sat inside, there is a lovely rooftop space with plenty of cozy seating areas. Two of them have couches adjacent to a double sided fireplace the view is Insta worthy. :) We will be returning!

    The noise on the rooftop patio was from trains, fire trucks and police sirens. To be expected in a downtown settings. And makes for an exciting time!

    Always a fabulous time sitting at the bar. A much trendier, up-scale space located downtown Glenwood. Great views and outdoor space. The bartenders are always friendly and accommodating! Elegant interior. And a selfie-lighting approved restroom ;) Only thing to note! The hosts can sometimes be a lil “disconnected;” a couple times I’ve been told we couldn’t be seated bc they had a large party or too many reservations.. so I stuck my head around the corner- it was completely dead lol. Both times they let us in after a question or 2, just a bit awk. Not sure what that’s about, but doubt they want the hostesses to turn away business (?) Either way, if you can “get seated”- it’s a great time. xoxo
