Service was a little slow on the uptake. I realize it was the 50th Anniversary of the Queen Mary
being there since 1967 to the day. I know, I was there back then.
The wife ordered the roast duck and it was in-fact on the dry side. I gave her half of my Beef Borgiounion and that was great.

Was there for a special romantic birthday dinner that was anything but with our table directly next to 3 parties of 20 people who were ridiculously loud and obnoxious. When asked if we could be reseated we were met with disregard and "I'll see what I can do" to never have anyone come back to the table. Pretty sad when you're spending 200$ on dinner that was supposed to be special for your significant other. And thanks for the 25$ corkage fee for a bottle we purchased on the ship... 🍾🥂

I would have given 5 stars for overall, but even though i reserved a table several weeks in advance requesting a window table, we didn't get one. Why? The hostess told me it was first come first serve. Well then, if that is the case, why give a ' preference' option in the reservation site?. and further, since I've been a customer of yours for many many yeas, I would think that Winston's would be cognizant of this. Have you no record /file of past and repeating customers?........

Old world charm, ambiance and quality food. Excellent service, relaxing atmosphere. Prices are premium but worth it for a special occasion, treat yourself! Steak is almost fork tender, view of the harbor and city could not be better. Apparently it fills around 7:00 so noise levels may rise.

Sir Winston's lives up to the image evoked by its namesake. The bar has remarkable offerings of Scotch, especially The Macallan 21. The bar also offers well made cocktails and an adequate wine list. It is quiet and reserved in its decor and resulting ambiance. The views of Long Beach and its downtown shoreline are great.

The menu is somewhat limited in its offerings but they are the best of traditional British fare. For entrees, I highly recommend the Beef Wellington, the Herb Chicken Roulade, the Steelhead Salmon, the Chateaubriand, and the Bone-in New York Steak and for sides they all come with asparagus, roasted tomatoes, and truffle mashed potatoes . The appetisers include an excellent Carpaccio Of Prime Beef Tenderloin and the best Chilled Jumbo Shrimp Cocktail this side of the White House. For starters, the Caesar Salad is properly prepared and plentifully garnished with slivers of well aged Parmigiano-Reggiano, the French Onion Soup is as it should be with a properly baked crust of gruyere but the Lobster Bisque is for which to die. Be sure to save room for extraordinary soufflés, I recommend the exquisite Dark Chocolate Soufflé with Grand Marnier Crème Anglaise.

A closing of one of the fine Port offerings with a cup of truly great coffee would be appropriate for ending the meal and retiring to the bar for a night cap of The Macallan Rare Cask neat with a wee bit of branch water back.

The wait staff and bar staff are knowledgeable, punctual, and, above all, professional. The food attests to the skill and resourcefulness of the kitchen staff. Kudos to the Chef.

All this said, be mindful that greatness comes with a price.

Taking the cruise the next day, so decided to stay on the QM overnight (highly recommended)...
Had dinner at the Winston, mainly due to the reviews found about the restaurant...basically it as OK... Ambinance and scenery was very good, potential of luxury dining on one of the vintage ship of the line... A little disappointing compared to the reviews read about it prior to scheduling the Open Table reservation.

Food was good, but not great... I was just expecting more... Service was suspect, our waiter was not very attentive, and there were long pauses between his visit to our table.

Probably what really made the visit not very appealing was the allowance of other patrons to use their cell phone as a "photo op" ... If I was in the witness protection program, I now could be easily found... there had to be at least 100 photos taken, right next to our table and many aimed in our table direction... pretty unnerving to my wife and I who were looking into a quiet dinner... I would highly suggest the staff monitor this activity to curb it a bit, or post a message board at the entrance to please limit this activity...

Pleasant experience. This was a time for me and my family to travel from other states and reunite. The table that was next to us had 2 toddlers. They were the usual active children which i would never take with me so i could enjoy my time. Others may not have the same opinion. We would have liked to stay longer but chose to leave for some quality, quiet, space.

The ambiance is classic and old school as is Queen Mary. It is a lovely restaurant with a great view of Long Beach across the bay. The staff was great. It shows you what a professional and seasoned staff should be especially our waiter. We had a special request and he was very thoughtful and conscientious. We had Thanksgiving prefix menu. It was really lovely. The only thing I would say is the Beef Wellington was a bit bland and for the price expected it to have more flavor. The turkey was delicious. I would definitely go again for a special occasion. It is a bit of a drive.

Thanksgiving fixe prix menu with four courses with homemade sorbet between salad and entrée. Excellent service, we were concerned that there would be pressure to move the table but rather, they paced the reservations so there wouldn't be pressure of people waiting, and paced the courses so nothing felt rushed. We were there for 2.5 hours and there was no pressure to leave. Jesus, our waiter, was fantastic and provided a level of service that I thought no longer existed.

Everything was perfect except for the people who were dining next to our table who were so obnoxiously loud...I know that they were having a good time but they should also be considerate to the people around them who also want to enjoy a fine dining experience not feeling that they are in a market type of environment...Our waiter Mauro was so gracious and apologetic and even asked us if we would like to move to another table... But the overall experience was fantastic 😊

We were celebrating a milestone birthday and it was the perfect place to do so. Food was excellent. I recommend the chicken roulade and the lobster salad. Service was impeccable. They even brought a slice of cheesecake with a candle on it. Tom, our waiter was the most professional and friendly and made us feel special. He is an asset to the restaurant.

I tried the Beef Wellington and the dough around the fillet was not cooked. The meat tasted like it was boiled. The escargot was very good taste, however, they were a bit chewy. The vegetables were excellent; carrots, mashed potatoes, asparagus. The soufflé was excellent.

We came for a group business outing while we were attending a convention in Long Beach. Overall the restaurant was good, but make sure you have plenty of time. The meal was about three hours. We didn’t get presented dinner menus until well after the wine was served. Food was satisfactory, not particularly outstanding. The duck was pretty salty, but good overall. The escargot was okay, but needed more seasoning. Food was like warm when it arrived.

It was 30 years ago since our last visit. You didn't disappoint! The food is still excellent, the service (waiter's name: Tom) was the very best. The black truffle sauce made us [almost] forget how good the béarnaise sauce is. Wine was excellent. Desert perfect.
We will not wait 30 years to return, promise.
Parking was a problem, although this appears to be a temporary issue.

I asked the server whether I should order the fish or the New York bone-in steak. He recommended the steak. This was possibly the worst steak I have ever been served in a restaurant. It was tough and had more fat than meat. It was quite a mission trying to cut through the incredible amount of fat and finding the meat to eat. I spoke to the manager and he told me that I ate too much of the steak to have it eliminated from the check. He gave me a 10% discount and free dessert. It is a shame that such a highly rated restaurant would serve such a substandard meal.

We really enjoyed the friendly service, historical atmosphere, tasty food and elegance of the spacious area. It wouldn’t be my choice for pre theater as the courses are served slowly. It was nice to not be crunched in with tables so close, no loud music and not to feel rushed through our meal. It was $$$$$$ but worth it at least one time to experience a by gone era of relaxed elegance.

I was a little disappointed in the overall menu. My wife spoke of this place from many years ago and we were challenged what to select on the night of her birthday. We ended up having the Chateau for two and although very good and well prepared and served it was missing something.
We also arrived 15 minutes before our reservation and were keep waiting for our dinner reservations longer than we felt was appropriate. Maybe just an off night?
