    Excellent service. Quality of food, impeccable. Chocolate soufflé, good. Not exceptional. Chocolate strawberries made up for what was lacking. Made reservations through open table for eight @6:00pm. Arrived early, reservation was for 2; though #8, confirmed e-mail. Recommend double check with phone call. We were accomodated, this time! Previously, had problem. We left, ate elsewhere. (DalRae)

    My wife and I went to Sir Winston to celebrate our anniversary. We were pleasantly surprised - the restaurant fits the atmosphere of Queen Mary perfectly, and the food (we both had beef Wellington) would make even Winston Churchill happy. Service did not disappoint, either. Sunset views must be amazing.

    My wife and I were attending a nearby conference and always wanted to have dinner on the Queen Mary. The food was of very high quality, well prepared and tasted delicious. The waiter, Drew, was fantastic and very accomodating. One of the best waiters we've ever had. My wife and I also enjoyed being able to stroll the decks of the Queen Mary after dinner and fully enjoy the ambience and history of this historic ship.

It was the best place they have eaten at. The surprise cake, chocolate covered strawberries were a surprise unexpected! You get treated like a dignitary.

    Well, me and my partner went to sir Winston's on the queen. Art for a romantic Saturday night dinner. Found it to be romantic, not rushed, food was amazing, wine was delicious and our waiter was very friendly. The ship is so large, that we walked along the deck to walk off a bit of dinner and take in some if the ocean air. I would strongly recommend this place for a special occasion.

    My friend and I celebrated our birthdays with a 4 day stay on the Queen Mary. One of the highlights was a fabulous dinner at Sir Winston's. My cousin Betsy Samson-Andrews was a hostess for two years. At her recommendation Thomas Vargas was our fabulous server. From being seated by JB and Thomas as our server we had a wonderful time.

    Fun historic place, very nice for special occasions. Food was delicious & well-prepared (except chocolate soufle was just so-so). Also, we were celebrating an anniversary & had let the hostess & waiter know. After dinner, we ordered dessert- no fanfare accompanied it. THEN, when we were DONE with that, the waiter presents us with a dessert cake w/ candle. Nice touch, but was silly and wasteful to order and receive dessert PRIOR to the celebratory dessert. Rather anticlimatic & kind of annoying, didn't really want two desserts. We got charged for the first one & wouldn't have ordered it if we had received the celebratory one first. That aside, we had a delightful evening there with delicious food, attentive wait-staff,& lovely ambiance.

    You want to think that on a tourist attraction like the Queen Mary all they're going to have is bad hamburgers, and cold greasy fries. Sir Winston's has to be one of the most perfect and elegant dining experiences available to Southern California. Perfectly prepared classic steakhouse food, served with attention to detail. If you're looking for a great night out --- this is a place not to be overlooked! Get the raspberry souffle. Great setting, easy parking, and a fun place to take a little walk after dining. Do wish they had prime rib on the menu.

    While it was not easy to locate the restaurant on board - and the double flight of stairs is a bit daunting - the restaurant was terrific. The servers were as you would expect for the FC dining room of the Queen Mary - pleasant, affable, helpful, accommodating, informative. The food was well portioned and flavorful. Well worth the trip.

    We loved our time on the Queen Mary, but especially loved our meal at the Sir Winston's Restaurant. The food was exquisite, the ambiance was beautiful and the service was over-the-top. We met friends that we had not seen in 10 years, so the meal was a wonderful time of dining and visiting. Our waiter was the best, making sure our meal was perfect and adding enjoyment with his humor. We can't wait to come back!

    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.

    The food is excellent! Sir Winston's has an incomparable wine list - so many, so hard to choose. The cocktails are fantastic and extremely well prepared. Where else can you order Oysters Rockefeller, let alone, Beef Wellington in Truffle Sauce? Perhaps you can get the Welllington from a Gordon Ramsay establishment, but you would certainly pay more. Sir Winston's is a class act harkening back to a better time - very classy, regal!

    The only thing I can say bad about the experience is it is very hard to get to the restaurant. There is no elevator, so you have to walk up a long flight of stairs. Which, at 71 years old and just off of chemo was not easy to do. It was a little pricy but good for special occasions such as our 50th anniversary.

    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.

    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 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.
