Entertainment
Scott MacDonald was born in the small artistic community of Ojai. Compelled to anything musical, he quickly found that he could reproduce on the piano what he had heard, first melodies and then chords. Around age seven, he started coming up with simple compositions. In December of '79 at age 24, he recorded and performed his original works, traveling extensively throughout the US, Australia, the Pacific Islands, and Europe. He particularly developed a great fondness for ocean travel and has performed aboard many ships of all kinds. But, one ship stands alone in Scott's life. Since first coming aboard the RMS Queen Mary in 1973, the ship has played a pivotal role. He considers it a privilege to spend each Friday and Saturday aboard the Queen Mary, playing piano and singing in the renowned Sir Winston's Restaurant and Lounge from 6 pm until 10 pm.

With Long Beach bridge construction and shipments' trucking re-routing, awful obstacle course with insufficient directions to get to Queen Mary. Interesting sights and shipboard facilities as always. Sir Winston's food not up to par with prior visits, but still extraordinary. A bit more pricy. Service was courteous, but lacked some coordinated timing of dishes' presentations at the table. Overall good, since not consistent with prior exceptional standards as expected.

I looked for a nearby restaurant, fine dining, and found Sir Winston's on the Queen Mary. This occasion was for my uncle who turned 90 that day. We were both very impressed with the dining ambiance, care of the waiter and other staff, and the food was incredible! Sir Winston's prepared a very special birthday dessert for my uncle also which I did not request. My uncle has never had such a nice meal and was overwhelmed with the experience. Pricing was very reasonable, all things considered.

This is a true "old school" dining experience, aboard the beautiful Queen Mary! If you enjoy history, classic steakhouse type fine dining, beautiful views, and a historical, traditional atmosphere, you will love this restaurant!! If you are looking for modern, this isn't for you. The steaks melt in your mouth, and the dessert is amazing! Great menu, great service, and very cool atmosphere, enjoy!

The hostess Arielle was rude. She was going to sit us by the service counter which was the worst table in the entire restaurant. She also lacked decorum. The clients were better dressed than the "hostess". Our food was exceptional. David our server conducted himself professionally and integrity.

The Veal medallions Oscar was wonderful. My husband got the jumbo stuffed shrimp and my brother in law tried it too. Neither were a fan of the stuffing. However the shrimp were huge, and filling. My sister and brother in law ordered some seafood dish with linguine. I can't remember how to spell it. Something like Fruittita de mare. They both loved it. I thoroughly enjoyed a Drop if Lavender. Is a grey goose martini. With drinks, food, appetizers, dessert, coffee tax and tip or bill was a little over$400 for 4 people.

The rooms were extremely cold. The food was cold when it arrived. No salt and pepper on table. The food was average at best. The best part was the bar and the pianos before dinner. Be prepared to not find it within 5 minutes from the promade deck

Wonderful views especially in evening but that did not make up for low quality of prepared food at high prices. Dinner for 2 was well over $200 with only one glass of wine each. Table side Caesar was fun but needed more egg and garlic and Worcestershire was overwhelming. Stuffed shrimp came out cold and dry. Steak was mediocre but peppercorn sauce was thin without peppercorns and tasted like it was straight from a bottle. Broccolini side was limp and tasteless. Dessert cake dry. Friendly service though a bit unrefined. Some people in t-shirts and shorts with others in jackets or dresses. Would not recommend. Visit the bar and enjoy the view!

My husband wanted Beef Wellington for his Birthday Dinner and I searched high and low for a place to get it. Come to find the only place in Orange County to get Beef Wellington is Sir. Winstons. Not only is the meal delicious but the atmosphere is fun! It is old school classic dining. Something I miss now a days when every restaurant is open, bright, and loud. Sir. WInstons is the type of place that I went to when I was a kid and went out for a fancy dinner. Quiet and darkish with top notch service. I think if we took a sip of our water someone stealthily came and filled it back up. A Very Classic meal.

Also, The views are top notch is in the right seat. My only complaint... We were sat next to a window land side and the Halloween haunt thing was going on. Every 10 min or so a bright fire burst shot up and was blinding.... So, if you go in October request to not sit with a view of the Halloween Haunt. :) Otherwise.... Great night! Great Dinner and we will probably be back next year since this was year #2 for his request. :)

One Final Note about going in October... If going during the Halloween Haunt it can be a challenge to get in, park, and leave. So I would probably recommend having your reservation in October Before Dark.

This was for myself and two friends from work, we just wanted to have a fun evening together and un-wind, and wow Sir Winston's was the perfect place! The food, service, and ambiance were just a delight! I had a delicious New York steak and my two friends split a chateaubriand for two, and both said it was delicious. A bit on the pricey side for us working folks, but what a treat, and we most assuredly got what we paid for!

I was looking forward to dining here. There was hardly anyone in the restaurant, yet though waiter was nice, he and the service was extremely slow. It was so cold I could not enjoy being there. I ordered lamb chops medium- not only were they rare, they were lukewarm. There was nothing else on the plate but 3 small chops. The waiter didn’t bother to tell us that everything was ala carte. They were $48.00.

Although we enjoyed our night at the restaurant for a 5 star we got 3 star service. 3 out of 7 food came to us cold lie it sat around for half hour. My water cup was filled as soon as it was half full until the bill was presented to us then it was like we didn't exist any more. Nobody was rude they were very pleasant. Would I make reservation there again, answer is yes. Actually the table we were seated at they could have seated ten which I originally asked for and when you said none available till Sunday I changed to 7 and got it for Saturday.

Clams Casino has a great preparation, 3 of the clams were a tad rubbery.

Spinach Salad was great, had an over-easy quail egg in it.

Bacon wrapped scallops were phenomenal. I added cream corn and the sweet/savory corn added the more flavor, i rec ordering these dishes as a pairing.

Wife had a new york steak with red whine sauce and that was also terrific.

i would prolly skip the souffle next time, but it wasnt terrible.
