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.

This is the ultimate romantic place to be. The view was absolutely gorgeous and the food was phenomenal. The Clementine- old fashion , is no joke! They were beyond delish! Loved the escargot and oysters. Overall an incredible experience. We will come back again!

We celebrated our first anniversary here and it was a great experience overall. We both went with the waiters recommendations for main courses and desserts. The food was amazing. They sat us facing the harbor for an awesome view. Reservations we're right on time. Very nice place. Just right for our night.

The food was absolutely amazing and delicious,and the waiting staff were extremely attentive without being over intrusive. However the front of house staff need to have their customer skills sharpened up. My husband and I had previously booked a table for 20.00(8pm), we arrived at approx 19.50 but we were not shown to our table until 20.15. However as the food etc was so good we decided to book a table for Sunday 8/12/18 (12th August ) we arrived at 19.50 again and this time we weren’t shown to our table until 20.30. While we were waiting around 6 tables vacated the dining room and another 5 tables were shown in before us. When we got into the dining room there was at least 10 empty tables.
As I said in the beginning the food and waiters are amazing but what has lowered my review score was the front of house staff.

It is definitely a dining experience! It was the first time where the main menu was not the first thing handed to you. They want you to enjoy your cocktail and enjoy your company before getting to the main meal. We ordered cocktails, soup, main dish for 2...and then we received cake for our 10 year anniversary and chocolate covered strawberries to end the meal. This was about 2 hours, so keep that in mind.

We were seated at a table right up by the window with a view of Long Beach. Really quiet nice. Our foursome really likes to eat so we ordered appetizers and entrees. I must say I enjoyed the escargot. And the fruit bread was warm. Our entrees were just ok. I had the oysters while my mom had the stuffed shrimp. Way more bread than crab and shrimp. A little disappointing and overpriced. Sir Winston’s does wrap the evening up with a sweetness of a chocolate covered strawberries. Pricey for an ok entree.

Ambience is a 10, what's not to like dining on a beautiful art deco ocean line with a view of long Beach lit up at night. Food was certainly well prepared. Beef willing to was tender and flavorful, veggies grilled perfectly, grand Marnier soufgle was very tasty finish to a lovely meal

You have about a 25% chance of getting a lousy table/view. The way Sir Winston's is laid out you will walk through the main dining room and past the tables with nice harbor views. If you are unlucky (like us) the host takes you to one of two rooms on the port side of the ship with views of a construction site in a parking lot, an adjacent parking garage, and the cranes of the port of Long Beach. There were plenty tables available in the main dining area. I wish I had said, "thanks, but no thanks." Food and service were excellent.


The lady of the family seated next to us was extremely upset about their table. I think her complaining to the manager got them complimentary crème brulee and ice cream for the kids.

My husband and I had dinner here last night, with my parents for my husbands birthday. The service was impeccable, the atmosphere was great, and the food was excellent. The view was breathtaking during dinner and spectacular at sunset with dessert. The waiter was upbeat, very friendly, and professional. This is a nice place for small group. We all enjoyed our food, of good sized portions, from the appetizers, the salads, the main course, to the desserts. Overall a beautiful evening. Would most definitely return.

The food. Wowwww! Everything is prepared to perfection. For starters, my father had The Chilled Jumbo Shrimp Cocktail that he said was fresh and very good. I was not sure what to start with, so I went with the Caesar Salad. They prepared it with big fresh slices of parmesan cheese and a wonderful crunchy crouton, my husband decided to enjoy an appetizer of Escargot and was very happy he did. They cook it to perfection in butter and garlic, and my mother chose the Carpaccio. It was superbly put together with plenty of crisp capers and arugula that she loves. After our appetizer course, we were given little champagne sorbets to cleanse the palettes before our entrees. The sorbet was very refreshing and cleaning. The main courses were expertly prepared, with the food cooked exactly as ordered, and the sides fantastic. My parents shared the Chateaubriand that came together with roasted tomatoes, potatoes, and different marmalades and sauses to use. My husband selected the Beef Wellington which was so tender you almost didn't have to chew it. I wanted to try the Petaluma Duck, because I really like duck, and it was outstanding, better than I expected. It was pan seared, came with asparagus, green beans, and presented in a boniato puree. Superbly delicious. We all then enjoy in the smile and joy, when my husband was presented with a slice of red velvet cake. I got to nibble from several plates and it was all good, because there were so many courses it worked out.

Were staying aboard the Queen Mary that night as the next day we were moving our new yacht from Marina Del Rey to Long Beach so made reservations for dinner and mentioned it was my birthday. The food was exquisite and beautifully presented, the ambiance/setting really elegant and the waiter (Jesus) was extremely professional and had been working for The Queen for 30 years. Only disappointment, they brought dessert to another table for a birthday but they didn't say anything about my birthday. It's OK, though...we thoroughly enjoyed the experience

Staying aboard the Queen Mary and wanted to dine here since I was a kid. I’m from Long Beach but have visited for the past 10 yrs on and off since I moved to Las Vegas. The entrance was hard to find. Must of went to the other side of the ship. The chateaubriand was ordered medium rare and came out well. The vegetables were over cooked and the garlic mash was lumpy and a very small portion considering the price. Our server Benjamin was the only saving grace along with the table side cocktail service. I just didn’t expect it to be so disappointing. Overpriced meal and still not full but just upset.

My husband and I had a great experience! We went for our one year wedding anniversary. Window seats in the front is first come, first serve. Lucky for us we got the best seat there (our preference). We were there early and was able to be seated early. Staff was friendly, waiter was great, and the food was amazing! We also received a slice of cake for our anniversary from our waiter.

I was hoping for a more decorative British looking room. There was no decor. It looked like a plain room on a ship. Most of the views outside though were nice. The service was great and the food very good. We liked that it was quiet. The desserts were wonderful with a whiskey coffee. It was special to walk the ship at night and see the wonderfully lit coastline and the fireworks on Saturday night. It was a nice dinner with friends for a celebration.

Overall experience was great. Only bit of advice I"ll give is to confirm exactly where your table is, upon arrival we were given a table in a small room with a view of a parking lot, no where on the website does it show such a view. The hostess fixed this problem, it was a little aggravating, but not enough to deter another visit for dinner.

This is our 3rd time here and it never disappoints. We came for dine La week and tried something different. We usually have the chateaubriand but since it wasn’t on the dine La menu we tried the trout and the chicken roulade. Both were great meals. The waiter was so attentive and so was everyone else. We love this place.

Great location with a wonderful view from the top deck of the ship. Service was very good, and the food was fabulous. Very nice selection from appetizers to entrees, paired with a full bar and a very decent wine selection. I think next time I'll book a suite, have dinner, stroll the deck and then head to the room.
