Really liked it!

vip
Dined 5 days ago

I had read some great reviews, and some not-so-great ones about Sir Winston's, but I have to say my meal was just about perfect in every regard. OK, it's a tourist place, and really expensive, but it's unlike any other dining experience out there. The food and drinks were excellent, and the service extremely gracious and professional. Go ahead and treat yourself on a special occasion.

Five Star Dinning with an ocean view

vip
Dined 5 days ago

The manager John , met us at the door and was so pleasant. He walked us around the restaurant to pick a table with a great view. My wife and I came for dine long beach. We started with cocktails ,which were very good and perfectly made. We ended up ordering off the Sir Winston's Prix Fixe Menu vs the dine long beach menu. We started with salad wedge of super crisp iceberg lettuce cloaked in tangy blue-cheese dressing and topped with slivered red onion,crisp bacon chunks and diced tomatoes. It was outstanding. For our man course we both had the slow roasted prime rib, cipollini onion, glazed carrots, smashed potatoes, red wine reduction. It was cooked perfect. For desert we had the Expresso Tartlet cocoa cookie dough, espresso crème brulee, chocolate cream. The desert was one of the best I haver had. Tom our server gave us impeccable service. This was an awesome dining experience, the views were amazing and you felt like you stepped back in time when she sailed the seas.

Outstanding food & service

Dined 6 days ago

The food was superb and the service was outstanding. Our waiter, Benjamin, was fantastic. We ordered Beef Wellington and Chateaubriand for 1 and Benjamin had the kitchen split them for us so we each had half and the presentation was great. I wish I lived closer because I would go there for dinner more often if I could. We had soufflé for dessert and I was in heaven.

Lovely dinner, a bit rushed at first

Dined on April 24, 2016

Great spot! Food is great, be prepared for French twist, French portions (meaning small) but tasty. The server wanted to rush our order, literally within minutes. I didn't understand why considering our reservation was at 8:30pm. Two of us $150 for two soups and two dinners, nothing more. Was tasty.

Toasting the Queen on the Queen

Dined on April 22, 2016

Finally got to Sir Winston's after having visited the Queen Mary several times over the years. I was in town for a conference, and dined alone. The wait staff was first rate; the ambience a delight, and the food quite good. The lobster bisque was a highlight, and the Dover Sole Muniere delicate. I had a glass of the Queen Mary Champaign, and toasted Queen Elizabeth on her 90th birthday.

Dined on April 21, 2016

Positives: my dinner was decent (I had the duck) and the view of the water is nice. Negatives: Our waiter, while nice, was simply not up to par. I was dining with a friend who can't eat gluten or dairy so we asked the waiter for help to know what dishes didn't have those or could be made without those. He was extremely unhelpful. We had to request repeatedly for him to go ask the chef. He never offered to have anything made without gluten or dairy either. Since we couldn't get a straight answer out of him about any of the entrees, my friend finally just ordered the shrimp cocktail, a side of green beans/bacon, and the grilled artichoke with aioli. When the waiter brought the artichoke, it was clearly just marinated artichoke hearts, not a grilled artichoke. My friend told him that that wasn't what the menu said and not what she ordered. The waiter insisted it was grilled artichoke and it was just cut up into small pieces. Ummm...no it's not. We had to send it back. The whole experience was ridiculous. He never got it that my friend had food allergies (he even put a piece of bread on her bread plate). He was either completely ignorant and untrained on how to deal with that type of situation or he just didn't care. Either way it is totally unacceptable. An expensive meal that was just average with horrible service.

It was ok

Dined on April 10, 2016

We looked up someplace new. Saw that this was voted the most romantic restaurant. For the price the quality of the food was ok. Nothing over the top. Glad we went so atleast we can say we did and not have to go back again. The service was good. Just a bit run down looking. When waiting outside you can see a lifeboat hanging that's deteriorating and there's trash inside and a bud light can. It was really not a nice view.

Good service and ambiance, food is ok.

Dined on April 4, 2016

I visited Sir Winston's with my girlfriend to take her on a nice date and tour of the Queen Mary. The reservation comes with free entrance and discounted parking (3 hours for $8) to the Queen Mary which was nice. Sir Winston's is located at the top of the ship with good views and the interior is very nice. The service was the best part of the dinner, our waiter was nice, very attentive, and everything was done in a timely manner. We ordered off a price fixed menu which came with three courses. All the food was good but not great, I had ordered the prime rib medium rare but it came out close to well done and my girlfriend wasn't a fan of her chicken. Over all I went with four out of five because the service and location were great but the food wasn't quite up to par. Total cost for 2 was just over $100 including tip, a nice date night but I don't plan on making a second trip.

Absolutly Delicious!

Dined on March 27, 2016

I have been here at least a handful of time and every time I'm always more then satisfied. This last time was for our 11th anniversary and we brought our 11 year old and 6 year old children. Although it's not recommend for really young children because it is a romantic and quiet setting, you can bring your children if they are well behaved and can sit still for a while and be respectable to other dining because it does take time to get your food, Beef Wellington is Amazing!!

Mediocre

Dined on March 24, 2016

We decided to eat on the ship as we were spending the night and it was not practical to drive around town looking for some thing better. The prices are that of fine dining but the food did not match the price. My daughters's crispy skin salmon came without the skin. We sent it back and the second attempt was better but not great. For food in the high thirty to high forty dollar range it was just bland. Ambiance was great and service was fine but overall just a mediocre experience.

New Prix Fixe Menu review

Dined on March 21, 2016

My family Had the opportunity to try the new Prix fixe dinner this evening. Although. it was a limited menu, there was something for everyone. The serving sizes were quite generous with one exception. The vegetable polenta serving looked more like a side dish, rather than a main entree. Delicious, yes, but miniscule compared to the other entrees. Will we come back? Yes! Will we order the polenta again? Not unless we'd eaten within an hour before.

A great place for a special meal, quiet, beautiful atmosphere. I hate noise and crowds. The staff at this restaurant make you feel special, and the tables are a good distance apart. It ..is easy to get to from our home. This is our top choice for a special meal. I have recommended the restaurant to friends and colleagues many times. We have been going to this restaurant for 27 years.

Sir Winston Still Flashes the Victory Sign

Sir Winston Churchill's on board the Queen Mary is a very pleasant place to have dinner with close friends, lovers and others. The food is very well prepared and presented. The service is well above average and the beverage selections are excellent if somewhat limited. Ambiance and harbor/skyline views are great.

Original 1960's Queen Mary Crew members Loved it!

Dined on March 9, 2016

We hosted a welcome back dinner for The Parsons and I must "Thank" Mgr, JB and our waiter, David for the level of extraordinary service we all received. Perfect table, view of the city lights, amazing food and gracious company. Our guests, we original crew members that met on the Queen Mary and were visiting the ship for the first time since 1961. They had just gotten back from a world cruise and said the dinner was better than that they had while at sea. We listen to their stories of when the Queen Mary was at sea and what the dining rooms were like aboard. They were both very impressed with JB and said, "It felt good to be back". Thank you Queen Mary - Sir Winstons for everything!

my surprise anniversary dinner for my wife...

Dined on March 7, 2016

It was our 8 year wedding anniversary and my wife kept telling me not get her anything. So I decided to take her out to a nice restraunt. I started looking in Marina del Rey and found a couple of spots. But for some reason I was just not happy with going there. So I was just browsing when I decided to look in Long Beach and found Sir Winstons. I am so happy that I did. The setting was very classy. I get little visions in my head as to how I want the night to go. And my vision was that of the movie Titanic when Jack was invited to eat with the super wealthy. How everyone was dressed up. So I invited a few close friends and family members to get dressed up and to meet us there. It was supposed to be a surprise for my wife but we got there before most of the guests. Oh well. We had a awesome server who was very attentive to our needs. The food was excellent. And since my 6 year old was there and the menu is really catered to adults, they were able to get food from another restraunt just for her. After we ate to our satisfaction the restraunt brought a little gift for my wife and I which was really sweet and nice. Afterwards everyone ordered dessert and it was delicious. Once, dessert was done our server brought out chocolate covered strawberries. That was the icing on the cake. I would definately recommend this restraunt to anyone who wants a nice romantic, quiet evening either with family and friends or with their spouse.

unexpected experience

I was expecting an expensive typical steakhouse. Instead we got fine dining. Caesar salad at the table Abe very fresh. Chateaubriand that you could cut with a fork. Complimentary palate sober palate cleanser and great chocolate covered strawberry to finish. Dinner for both of us (no alcohol) with a shared dessert 160.00 so it was a bargain too

Good food, OK experience

Dined on February 28, 2016

First, our meal was great... not particularly innovative, but well-prepared and very tasty. I thought the prices were reasonable. I was disappointed that we had to wait for 20 minutes despite having a reservation. We were then placed at the table nearest to the front entrance and thus during our meal we had to listen to other people complain to the manager about the wait. The hostess and manager also asked us three different times what my name was so they could verify the reservation. A sign in front says proper attire is required but several people were wearing jeans and old tennis shoes. To be honest, it kind of ruined the ambience as we were there for a nice, romantic night out. Overall I was glad we went to Sir Winston's because I've been wanting to try it, but I'm not sure if I would return.

This is a high end restaurant with great service, great food and very nice atmosphere. The beef wellington was awesome! I'm not a high end diner so it was a little out of my league. Mom was in town for a week so we wanted to take her somewhere nice. It was worth the expense for a very memorable meal.
