    My boyfriend and I dined at Sir Winston's this past weekend on our date night. The restaurant was beautiful, romantic and the service was impeccable. We ordered appetizers and French onion soup, which was one of the best I've had. We also ordered the surf & turf special, which was delicious, but the filet was not seasoned enough. The wait staff was extremely attentive to us and professional. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Sir Winston's and will consider it again for our next special occasion.

    I was looking for a unique place to take my boyfriend for his birthday when I came across the sir winston restaurant. It provided us with an amazing view and a dinner that was to die for. I strongly recommend the beef Wellington dish!! The complimentary birthday dish was the cherry on top of a perfect experience

    This restaurant stays at the top of our list for quiet romantic spots. The ambience was quiet and romantic by the window overlooking the coastline of downtown Long Beach. For starters we had the mushroom strudel (wrapped in puff pastry), the Lobster Bisque, and Oysters Rockefeller. We would definitely order them all again, they were so perfect! Some of the best Lobster Bisque we have had. Then after a champagne sorbet intermezzo, for entrees we ordered Beef Wellington & Scallops over cauliflower puree which were all cooked perfectly with great flavors. Finally the Grand Marinier' Souffle and that was the icing on the beautiful cake! It was a lovely and romantic dinner and we are so glad we chose to go to Sir Winstons.

    Winston's offers a fine combination of ambiance (especially for the nautically or historically inclined), fine food and outstanding service, which includes the opportunity to wander throughout most of the Queen Mary and enjoy Harbor views. We ordered shrimp cocktail, a salad, Chateaubriand, Rack-of-Lamb, chocolate souffle and a gratis special dessert for the occasion (30th anniversary). Quality of the food was very good, portions were fair / generous. The wine-list was perfectly adequate, both by the glass or bottle, but unremarkable. Follow Sir Winston's tastes, they also offer a large selection of single-malt scotch and port, though we resisted this visit.

    Fun for a special occassion. A full service restaurant with nice service and good food. A bit pricey, not for every day (for me, at least!). Only one vegetarian option which had mushrooms....which I do not like. But it was still good.

    Service was great. Would give 5 stars, except we had requested a window table for 45th anniversary celebration and when we got there they said there weren't any available, yet we saw some in the other room. Other people came in later and were given those seats. Wonder what you need to do to have them save you a seat when you are making a reservation?? That was the only disappointment, though. Walking about the ship before and after dinner was a real treat and the views were spectacular.

    Our last night in Long Beach was capped with a dinner at Sir Winston's. We went early to take time to walk the decks of the Queen Mary, which was absolutely beautiful. You can feel her storied history as you walk. Dinner was fabulous -- from cocktails to appetizers to main course to dessert. Service was friendly, gracious and impeccable. We were able to look out over the harbor and enjoy the lights and the view. Definitely a dinner memory we'll cherish.

    This is a classic experience. A quiet, wood panelled, carpeted high class restaurant. Very quiet and an excellent view. Very good food. A limited menu, but that is no problem--they can do it well. I must admit I am shipping buff, so being able to visit and have a meal on the Queen Mary is a treat. The staff are very attentive and do not push.

    This is maybe the 4th or 5th time I have dined here. I'm from out of state. This time we met friends and it seemed like the service was very slow. We had some east coast jet lag going and were pretty ready to get out of there by the time the check was presented. I had the dover sole and it was very nicely prepared. The breads were tasty. It's an experience to savor slowly, not a place where you can get in and out quickly.

    I remember back in 1968 I was taking my brother back to his ship. The Bennington was an aircraft carrier when here comes the Queen Mary in all her glory. It was about seven AM and she made all the aircraft carriers in pier E look tiny, which is no small feat. My brother has since passed on but this lady makes me think fondly of him and those olden days. This night was for my birthday and I admit we were a little under dressed, but you could not tell from the excellent service we received. Our waiter was just wonderful, the ambiance was really great. The FOOD was terrific, beautifully displayed and delicious. I would recommend Sir Winstons to all my friends and family, actually I already have.

    We weren't impressed with the food. Presentation was fine and we liked the nice variety of vegetables but the meat portions could have been larger. We took guests from out of the country and they loved seeing the ship and having the view. We would return for both of those things but we have had better meals elsewhere. However, the ambiance, scenery, and the quietness of the restaurant would keep me coming back. Those things are more important to us than the food.

    It would be easy to have a restaurant on the Queen Mary that had good views and bad food. Sir Winston's goes the extra mile. They have good views and good food. And good drinks. And impeccable service. We split the Chateaubriand for two; it was prepared just right. There is something special about being on the top deck of that beautiful old boat. Love the wood paneling. One tip, it's a bit of a walk to get there, so make sure you ask someone downstairs! Hope to be back soon.

    The Maitre D' was really not welcoming at all! Even if our res was for 06:00PM we were quickly placed at a table close to the door. The restaurant was empty when we arrived and never filled. The waiter "attacked" us the very moment we were seated. We felt pushed around. I had to clearly tell him to hold his horses. Two experiences one should not live in such an expensive restaurant. Oh, by the way, I'm French speaking and I always find it very funny (not to say ridiculous) when I see menus with many misspellings, wrong accents or plainly wrong french words. Why don't they hire a professional translator or someone who knows how to write French properly. Please excuse my written English. At least, nobody has to pay to read these lines !!!

    I've lived in Orange County for years and wanted to try something new. Sir Winston's was exactly what we were looking for. The food was really really good. The wine was ok. The views spectacular. The only thing I would've done different is not going during the Halloween horror nights. And maybe better directions on how to get there would've been nice. Over all amazing and I'd go again

    We went there because it had good reviews and it seemed like a fun, nostalgic opportunity to dine on a famous ship. The food was quite good but was probably 20% overpriced. The waiter was excellent. The space did not have the ambiance that we were looking for. We did love exploring the ship after dining.

    Excellent service and great menu choice and fantastic food. The waiters were very attentive and topped up water, etc. The delivery of the various courses was in a very timely manner. The setting and crockery were of good quality and of a very lovely design. The courses were not disappointing and delivered what was described on the menu. The only thing I was disappointed with was, as I was dining alone. I was not given a table with a view even though there was one available by the window that was vacant all evening.

    Came to this restaurant for a romantic birthday dinner for my husband. Our waite, Benjamin,r was very cordial and helpful. The location at the front of the ship was perfect and the full moon rising gave an added touch to the scene. I had rack of lamb which was excellent along with the lobster salad. My husband had the NY steak which he enjoyed. We had the molten chocolatecake for dessert and that was delicious. then they brought us a special birthday treat of a cheese cake with strawberries. That was such a lovely surprise and so very tasty. We look forward to coming back to the ship for their Sunday brunch on another special occasion.

    This experience was all that you would expect from Sir Winston's. If you like romantic dinning, in a setting out of the 1930, this is the place for you. This is not the typical place you would expect to find at a tourist spot. Usually the parking is ok, however be careful if you will arrive in the month of October as they have their "Dark Harbor" program running and it is very popular. Just be firm with your request at the parking gate that you want to go to the hotel for dinner, and you can park close to the ship.

    We were told on the phone there was valet parking however, upon arrival there was not valet parking and we were directed to an outer parking lot as like being at a big league ball game. We asked a few parking attendants a question as to direction and they were not the least bit interested in our question except to say and point "over there" in an irritated tone. The decor in Sir Winston's is very shabby and in need of a facelift. We were a group of four and we all felt the food was tasteless. We spent just under $400 and feel they pull quite a spoof on the public. There is not one thing in our experience to justify Sir Winston's being rated as a four or five star.

    I took my mom here for a special dinner. She is 93 and in good shape for her age. However, there are still quite a few stairs to negotiate even after we found the elevator on board. The restaurant is not wheel chair accessible so plan accordingly. Food was wonderful. Perfectly cooked and presentation was lovely. Wine list was nice, but we chose a glass of champagne to celebrate the evening. Service was attentive. It's not an easy place to get to and not the type of restaurant that you just drop into.
