  • Great restaurant, horrible parking

    We had a wonderful meal. Food was fresh and nicely prepared. Service was excellent. View and ambience were lovely. HOWEVER, we had a horrible time with the parking. It turned out there was a concert next door, and the parking lot was full. We were directed to another lot about 2 miles away, had to pay $15 (Cash only!) and then take a shuttle over to the vicinity of Queen Mary. I really feel the restaurant should have either warned us or provided alternative arrangements for dining guests. This is a restaurant with a sign -- "Proper Attire Required" -- so having to schlep over on a school bus really didn't cut it. I explained the reason why I was late; didn't get a free drink or even an apology.

    I had previously been here once before. We decided to go here for our first wedding anniversary, and it was well worth it. We reserved and were seated as soon as we arrived. I ordered the rack of lamb, medium, and it was perfect. My wife had the salmon, and that was great as well. Because it was our anniversary, they brought us out a complimentary red velvet cake, with two chocolate covered strawberries. Very class act from the restaurant. We had a great time!

    Returned for another superb anniversary dinner. Fito provided outstanding service and the food was perfection. Courses arrived at the perfect time, the Beef Wellington was so tender and the wine was great. Our wonderful meal concluded with a complimentary Anniversary dessert. Still one of our favorites, and worth the hundred mile drive.

    The ship was impressive to look at - stepping onto it was like walking back in time - that theme was perpetuated throughout - done very well and with taste. The food was top notch - served with style - the presentation was impeccable. The waiter was attentive and exhibited a manner of elegance and refinement long gone in most restaurants. It was our sons birthday and an incredible cake, with Happy Birthday, written in chocolate was presented to him - the "icing on the cake", so to speak - the entire meal could not have been presented better, nor tasted better - everything was superb - a perfect evening.

    We thoroughly enjoyed our evening - the food was outstanding as was the staff. The lobster salad and lobster ravioli appetizer was delicious and both had a healthy portion of sweet lobster. We dined on a Monday evening so it was most likely not as crowded as on weekends, but we enjoyed that because we were able to ask questions and noone felt harried. We will definitely return and bring our friends.

    A very nice feel to the place, 1940's ambiance great piano player in the bar, this was a special occasion as we were entertaining friends from the UK and it was my wife's birthday. The resteraunt went the extra mile, table overlooking down town long Beach which was just great to see as the light fadded and down town lit up, and of course the birthday desert with added choclate dipped strawberries The styaff were attentive but not pushy, and there was plenty of time between course to actually enjow what we had eaten, but not feel that that you had been forgoten A great dinning experience

    Sir Winston's was absolutely amazing! The food was delicious and the presentation was just gorgeous. The beef wellington was unbelievable and the chicken dish did not disappoint. The desserts were fabulous, as well (chocolate souffle and cheesecake). Even the caesar salad was wonderful. Was with someone who works in a five-star restaurant and has been in many throughout his life. He said that Sir Winston's was the best meal he had ever had - quite the endorsement! I would highly recommend Sir Winston's for anyone who wants a true fine dining experience. The views are gorgeous from most any table, the ambiance is lovely and the food will not disappoint. And one last highlight: our server, Drew, was so friendly and on-the-spot. Ask for him!

    We had a great evening, but the service was sloooowwww. Everthing we ordered seemed to take forever to come to the table, which was puzzling because the room was not especially full. I don't know why. Maybe we had a dud waiter, maybe there's some problem in the kitchen. But they really need to clean up their act. It's no fun just sitting there staring at the tablecloth. And the annoying background music made it a bit difficult for us to hold a conversation. What exactly is wrong with silence?

    The food was incredibly delicious!! Impeccable service. We were celebrating our 25th Wedding Anniversary and were very happy we chose Sir Winston's. The only negative part of the evening was upon returning to our car we found the area to be quite dark and had to run away from a pack of about 6 raccoons that were apparently interested in the "To Go" bag in our hands. It was a frightening experience but once we were in the safety of our car we found some humor in the situation. All in all we had a wonderful time and will return whenever the opportunity allows.

    Although, Sir Winston's has done away with their dress code, I am of the opinion that it is nice to wear a coat and tie to such a fine establishment. Espesially, considering the historical nature of the Queen Mary, it is nice to be dressed well for such a grand affair. However, I think my over all experience would have bee better if it had been cooler. Suit + tie + 78 degree restaurant + $$$ menu = not exceptable. Please fix the air conditioning. Thank you

    Aside from the stellar service from Drew and the waitstaff, we wished the food was as impressive. We came for the food, beef wellington to be exact. Our Beef Wellington, while a large portion, was dry and lacked seasoning. It was requested medium and came out completely brown tasting more like a roast than a steak. The sauce drowning the scallops ruined the flavor of the scallop. We are not food critics, but like good tasting food for the price. We by far had a better meal at Taco Surf down the street for under $20. So disappointing to pay well over $100 for a less than mediocre meal. If we had come for the ambiance and service we would have been completely satisfied.

    Despite its high Zagat rating, we did not hold out a lot of hope for this restaurant. Afterall, it is inside a tourist attraction with a "captive" clientele. But we were wrong and after our first excellent meal, we returned the next night for more of the delicious continental food. The lobster bisque, lobster ravioli, chateaubriand, rack of lamb and Grand Marnier souffle were as good as we have had anywhere in Europe or the US. The venue was comfortably outfitted, quiet and with a lovely view. The maitre d' was gracious and very accomodating to our picky wine requirements. This is the kind of place that you can count on for a good meal and a nice evening.

    When in Long Beach, a trip to Sir Winston's is a must for any special occasion. The view of the city at night is beautiful, as well as during the day. The food is incredible! The beef Wellington is amazing, and definitely a must have! The service is also first class, with attention to your needs without being bothered.

    Sir Winston's fully replicates the first class dining experience of yesteryear's premium transatlantic ocean liner service. It may be a little stodgy and seemingly overpriced for today's twenty-somethings. But we more seasoned citizens will readily appreciate the classic menu and service. Janice and I celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary with an overnight stay aboard the Queen Mary and a celebratory dinner at Sir Winston's. It was a perfect romantic experience all the way around. We thoroughly enjoyed it - you will also.

    I last ate at Sir Winstons in 1985. I recall it being extremely nice but perhaps a bit staid. My experience on August 12 was exceptional in all ways. We had a group of friends over to the Queen for dinner. The service was extraordinary, friendly and, I suppose most importantly for a restaurant of this caliber, largely invisible. I mean that in only the most complimentary way..... every need was quickly and quietly attended, many times before the thought had fully crystallized in our minds. To me, that is the essence of superb service... that sixth sense the staff has and the professional and always courteous execution of the smallest details. Kudos! I must add that the food was simply outstanding!!!

    It was one of the best restaurant I have ever dined in my life (so far). If you are looking for a romantic night to celebrate with your special one, this is the spot you want to consider in the top of your list. Make a reservation, or you might have to pay for admission to aboard. Also, arrive little bit prior to your reservation time because it is everyone's request to dine in the seat with views. you might have to wait for a scenic view-tables to be ready. but, any seat in the restaurant are above average. Over all I really enjoyed the experience and definitely coming back for the view, food, drinks, and services.
