    We thoroughly enjoyed our evening at Sir Winstons'! We started with drinks in the lounge with a lovely piano player. We had a great table by the window! Our food was delicious! We had the beef wellington and the chateaubriand! Dessert was great too! Service was impecable!

    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.

    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.

    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

    Quality meat but dated cooking style. Waiter came to our table for taking order, cracking pepper, and giving bill. That's it. He did not even redo the plate setting after we changed the seat. The service was mediocre for what we paid. Definitely no recommendation.

    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.

    We went to the restaurant after a Haunted Tour of the Queen Mary. The cocktail list was old school, as well as the menu, but we loved it. It was romantic and the drinks were great. We started with a Passionate Affair! We would recommend going while at the QM or for a special occasion with someone who would appreciate traveling back in time.

    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.

    Disappointed
    Dined on 10/4/2014
    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.

    When you're in Long Beach, having a birthday, celebrating an anniversary, or "just because" then come to Sir Winston's. You will definitely have a great night with amazing food and impeccable service. If the Queen Mary is a golden ring, then Sir Winston's is the brilliant diamond that sits atop.

    I booked a room on the QM for the last night of my three-week holiday in California. The website was not user-friendly and made it difficult to find information on the various dining options, so I went for Sir Winston's on instinct. I could not have chosen better. The atmosphere was lovely, quiet and dignified yet welcoming. I am fussy (some would say obsessive!) about table service, and that of our waiter could not be faulted. The beef wellington was quite simply the best I have ever tasted -- being a favourite dish I try it whenever I can -- and my wife's scallops were also very good. I liked the provision of a sorbet to clear the palate between courses. The wines were excellent. A wonderful close to our travels. Our thanks to you all.

    My wife and I celebrated our anniversary with dinner at Sir Winston's and had requested a special table. They provided us with a very private table with a large window with a wonderful view (it was almost a private room set off from the rest of the restaurant). We both had the Beef Wellington which was superb and our waiter recommended a lovely 2010 Jordan Cabernet to go with it. We also had the gran marnier souffle and then in honor of our anniversary they surprised us with a small delicious cake with a candle on it. I could not be more pleased with the meal and the restaurant. I think this will be our go-to place every year.

    My husband and I ate at Sir Winston's for our anniversary this past weekend. The restaurant offered up everything we were hoping for; beauty, quiet ambiance, romantic setting, and divine food. Though a bit pricey, the food is well worth the cost and then some. There are no words to describe the deliciousness of the surf and turf plate. The wait staff was courteous, friendly, and always ready to provide great service. Can't wait to go back!

    This is a fine restaurant. Getting there is a challenge, especially for persons who have trouble managing stairs (such as my wife). It's a long walk from other parts of the ship, and two flights of stairs as well. If you make it, you'll love it.

    I've enjoyed several nice meals at Sir Winston's in the past but this last one will be my last. The air conditioning was barely working on a very hot day, the place is showing signs of wear and my Beef Wellington was dry, still somewhat cold and tasteless. It looked like a leftover with the soggy pastry withdrawn from the meat. Certainly not worth almost $50.00.

    Celebrated my husband's birthday here recently & also stayed aboard the Queen Mary for the weekend. The restaurant is on the sun deck of the ship, lovely views inside & outside, our server was wonderful, its very romantic and relaxed. We had appetizers (soup for me, salad for him) and shared the Chateaubriand for two - it was out of this world! My only disappointment was dessert, they brought out a free slice of choc cake for my husband with Happy Birthday written on the plate, as well as chocolate covered strawberries. We didn't know so we ordered creme brulee as well. I am a dessert person but I would only rate them as ok nothing spectacular which is a pity given how good the other courses were.
