Food was terrible! I have sent very few items back in my entire life, but all of our filets & lobster tails were brought to the table cold in temperature. I do not mean they were not hot, or warm. I mean the food was COLD! We sent it back, and twenty minutes later when they finally brought it back, it was STILL barely warm! The food was not good! This restaurant is on an old ship, the carpet is dirty, and there were stains on the white tablecloth when we sat down. This is no where near a FINE restaurant. I am normally very complimentary and not hard to please. But this was by far my worst dining experience in the last 25 years. If you eat here, you are eating here for the history of the ship.
It was an anniversary dinner, and my wife and I have studied their menu prior to the dinner. And we are very satistfied with their food, as well as their wine list. To our surprises, the restaurant offered us a nice cake for dessert. The waiter (I didn't catch his name) was very professional and friendly. Not only the view across from the RMS Queen Mary was breathtaking, the overall atmosphere at the restaurant is just classy. Recommended.
The food was amazing. The seating and atmosphere was devine. The service was friendly. Only thing I would say is I wish the servers would do more rounds to check on the tables to see if they needed anything while waiting for food but other than that they really went out of their way to make our night special. Loved it!
Prior to having our dinner at 5:30PM, we spent the first couple of hours enjoying the views, history, and amenities of the Queen Mary. We were celebrating my dear friends birthday, which he really enjoyed. It was a great place to celebrate a special occasion with those who are dear to you and that you care about. Thank you for a most enjoyable day and evening, and a most wonderful dining experience.
The venue is older of course but very classy. Menu isnt huge but has some top notch choices. French onion soup was delicious as were the meals of cheataubriand and beef wellington for around $45 each. The part I was unhappy about was dessert, the waiter told us after our meal there would be a soufle with two flavor choices. After our entres he returned and asked each of us if we wanted grand marnier or chocolate soufles so we made our selection and got two decent sized soufles which were good but we honestly didnt welcome as we had our fill with the main course alone. When the bill arrived we discovered the two soufles were $16 a piece and obviously not included with the meal. I still tipped the waiter a $20 as that wasn't even 10% but I dont plan on returning or recommending to anyone.
Top notch service, and the food was one of the most pleasant surprises as well. I had the New York steak and it was perfect. I've been to many high end steak houses and Sir Winston's did not disappoint. I can't wait to go back. Definitely a excellent experience.
It was such an incredible experience! The food was out of this world, and the service was far beyond what i expected.. extremely professional and very polite.
Every bit of the experience was amazing.
Very good and expensive. $400 for two people. We had to sends back the filets they were cold. It was good though and fond memories.
The food and service were outstanding. Our server anticipated our every need, was friendly and professional, and just very nice. The food was delicious, everyone raves about their meals. The only drawback was the group behind us, who were talking business VERY loudly, and made it difficult for us to even hear one another. I’m sure this isn’t typical of their guests, but it really negatively affected our experience.
The food was good, the staff was great. Had a really nice time.
The food was overcooked which made the scallops tough, the lobster tough and the shrimp tough. We were told the dessert was creme brulle but it was not and when we complained we were told we were wrong. The potatoes Anna were not edible. The menu seemed orerpriced for what we received.
I booked this reservation last minute after seeing a spot open up on Valentine’s Day. After checking their website and several positive Yelp reviews, I thought I had made a great choice and was looking forward to trying their claim to fame Beef Wellington. Unfortunately when my date and I arrived, we were informed that only a prix fixe menu was being served which not only did not have the Wellington as an option but was way overpriced. I felt trapped with every other restaurant filled up and my date looking at me with excitement for the evening.
Had it not been for this ridiculousness, I’m sure I would have given 4-5 stars as the food was good and service great. I’m still however highly annoyed a restaurant of their supposed caliber would stoop to such tactics on a holiday. To put it in a monetary perspective, the prix fixe was set at $142 ... the five course items off their regular menu would have normally amounted to approximately $95. $47 upcharge and more importantly NO WELLINGTON!!
Came for Valentine’s Day. Overall the experience was enjoyable. The atmosphere and view give the impression of luxury and truly make your meal memorable. Servers are quite attentive to any needs and amicable. Food was quite pricey but good and understandable given the experience as a whole. Would definitely recommend dining here for any special occasion if you like boats or the ocean.
Our 49th anniversary celebration was made memorable by our evening at your restaurant.
I sincerely wish I could write a good review, because the restaurant is lovely. However, I was there on a sparsely attended Saturday night.
So, I think that the food should have been better prepared. My date ordered the turf and surf
( Fillet “medium rare”)
I ordered the rack of lamb ( medium rare).
The Lobster was a nice portion and my date seemed to like it well enough. But, the steak was charred on the outside and RAW inside!! And I mean RAW!
Although I had ordered my lamb medium rare, it arrived quite well done and flavorless.
The waiter offered to take it back to the kitchen , but I declined since my date and I were engrossed in great conversation, and I had just quit on the Caesar Salad because it was tasteless and soggy. My date must have felt the same way and in the end softly let me know that he wasn’t going to eat the steak.
I asked to take it home to my dog who loves raw food. When I began to cut it for my dog I realized just how RAW it really was! She loved it!
I love my dog but don’t make it a habit of giving her $50.00 dinner fare!
YES we both should have sent our meals back. At the time we really didn’t care about the food. The company was mutually mesmerizing. And, I am happy to say...promising!!
Great experience. Wonderful food. Totally worth it.
Too bad atmosphere lacks the fine dining experience for the fine dining prices. Food was excellent. The lack of a real and enforced dress code was extremly disappointing. We planned a very special night on the Queen Mary and booked an overnight at the hotel for my birthday. I wanted to get dressed up and enjoy a fine dining experience at fine dining prices. As we were seated at our table a couple came in and the man was dressed in shorts and tennis shoes and a causal short sleeve shirt, the woman in casual pants and a top- and they asked if there was table for dinner- the host said " we are supposed to have a dress code- but no-one will notice so go ahead in" WELL I NOTICED AND THEY SAT THEM RIGHT ACROSS FROM US! I WAS NOT HAPPY! If I wanted to dine next to people dressed for McDonalds we wouldn't have paid $150 for dinner. They had a casual restaurant on the ship- they should have been directed to.
Very loud the waiters did nothing to quiet the drunk foul mouth idiots who had no respect for anyone around. Had to ask 3 times for the New York steak to be cooked well done. Gave up after the 3rd try
Awesome experience from beginning to end!
This is real destination dining. There is nothing quite like boarding the Queen Mary for a meal! The good news is that the food and especially the service match the setting. The service is really special. They clearly go out of their way to not feel “touristy,” but elegant. The food was very good. It’s not the best beef Wellington I have ever had, but quite good. It’s classic food in a classic setting and should be enjoyed as such.
Sir Winston’s is hands down my favorite fancy restaurant in all of LA/LB. The views of downtown LB at night are amazing!!
Everything was wonderful!!! Our server David was awesome! Definitely coming back!!!
What a wonderful dinner experience
Beautiful setting, good food, excellent for special occasions.
We came to Sir Winston's for my mother's 60th birthday and had a lovely experience! The service was excellent and the food was delicious. (Though we particularly enjoyed the cocktails). The recently renovated restaurant keeps in touch with the art-deco original and still boasts the same gorgeous views. Yes its' pricey- but its a 5 star restaurant! So if you've got a special occasion coming up, a birthday, anniversary, or romantic night for two I highly recommend it!
First time eating here and it was very quiet and romantic. The wait staff was excellent and made us feel special.
Had a fun and interesting experience on the Queen Mary everyone should try it for fun!!!
The service was wonderful as well as the atmosphere. I just got married and wanted to treat my wife to a classic dinner with great food and service. Its was wonderful.
It was my wife and I 46 anniversary the service was absolutely perfect, the food was prepared perfectly, will definitely go back,
