Queen Mary Champagne Sunday Brunch Ratings and Reviews
It has been nearly 30 years since I last enjoyed brunch on the Queen Mary and was keen on sharing it with visiting friends. The experience did not disappoint. The online info was most helpful since each of us were traveling from a long distance. We were not, however, prepared for the crush of traffic and much limited parking (due to the Scottish Highland Festival which was an added attraction.) We enjoyed splendid service and ambience that nicely balanced the well prepared and presented fare. You asked me to rate the sound level, which the only choice appropriate was "energetic". Quiet loud was more like it (coming from a party of a dozen young women post bridal brunch), which made conversation somewhat challenging. Still, this most unique experience was memorable whatever challenges there were we did not allow to dim our enjoyments.
Expansive brunch as you'd imagine. Actually a good value at $60 adults vs. similar that command closer to $100 for the same or less of a spread. Some of the dishes were really good, omelets, breakfast sides, chili rellenos, etc. others were lack luster. Pastas need some punch on flavor, the raw bar (as with most brunches of this sort) seem like dry tasteless oysters were shucked the day before. Plenty of good things to stuff your plates.
The food was okay, not the best brunch I've had. I expected more selection and higher quality of food. For example, there was a sign that said the crepes were made to order, but they were not. They were pre- made crepes, just heated and then filled with whatever you chose. The choices were limited. One type of fruit (strawberries, not fresh) and chocolate. I was disappointed in that especially because I have gone to another brunch at the Four Seasons where they prepared the crepes in a pan and cooked them in brown sugar butter (amazing!) with plenty of options of what you wanted to put inside. The prime rib was good but it was literally so rare that it looked completely raw, even on the end pieces. I was sitting near where the prime rib was being sliced and several people were commenting on how raw the meat was. One patron said 'It looks like it's still breathing.' The Asian food choices were not very good, the fried rice was tasteless and did not seem fried at all, it seemed more like steamed rice with frozen vegetable medley and the orange chicken lacked flavor as well. I personally would have liked to see more dessert options, such as creme brulee. My date liked the cheesecake bites and bread pudding. I also would have liked to have tortilla chips with my ceviche but there were none. The fresh fruit selection was sparse and not replenished. I wanted to put fresh strawberries on my waffle and all the strawberries were gone. I was not impressed with the food selection as a whole of the flavor.
I think what you are paying for is the location. There was a nice ice sculpture and harpist playing soothing music. It was a beautiful day today and we enjoyed the beautiful weather. There is a bar on another deck though, so if you just want to experience the Queen Mary, I would probably suggest sitting outside on the deck and enjoying some drinks there instead. We enjoyed walking around the ship after eating.
Fortunately we had a perfect day weather wise which enhanced the experience. I brought my cousin who had not been to Calif. before and she was totally impressed with the ambiance and all. Being greeted with the Mimosas set the tone and the food and service were excellent. I definitely will do it again even though it is quite a trip from the San Fernando Valley.
The first review I wrote for them was 5 star, raving. This time the service was so horrible, I think the waiter went out of his way to avoid us. We were sitting way in the back near the kitchen, in hindsight I should have asked to be moved, we had a front row seat to the waiter goofing around. We we signaled for him (because he never came without having to be asked) he would walk by us and say he'd be right back, which he didn't. Then he brought our check way before we were done eating. I watch him run my card then hold onto it while he went behind a curtain then walked around with it, when he finally got close enough my boyfriend asked him if that was our check and he avoided us and walked away disappearing for another 15 mins. I was so mad at this point. I will have to monitor my account because that was so suspicious and weird. He kind of ruined brunch for me. The food was just ok and the waiter barely gave us mimosas. In the end I felt cheated and now my bf says we will never go back.
Expected a lot more for our money. The decor really takes you back to the 1990s when the Queen Mary was in its prime. It looked like the tables and chairs haven't been updated since then. Way more casual than my husband and I expected. For $60 a person we expected a lot more glamour and glitz. The ship itself is still magnificent but just looks so outdated, it's sad. The food was fair but nothing out of the ordinary. We'll stick to the Castaway Brunch in Burbank.
This was actually my first time my whOle life living in long beach I finally went inside the queen mary. It was beautiful I took my family there for an early valentine , great experience I love it there and the food was great I give it a plus, I would love to go again it's a good price for the brunch my husband was in food coma lol he loved it. We will go there again for a special occasion.
This was an ok experience. The food was fine, and there was a nice selection. Unfortunately, the ambience was lacking, as it was a fairly expensive brunch (you have to pay $60/person to be there, unless they have a group rate), and there were quite a few people dressed very casually as if they were at Hometown Buffet. Also plenty of kids, though they weren't particularly noisy. Generally speaking, I don't think I could recommend it considering you already have to pay $30 to get onboard, and for $30/person you can get a more enjoyable atmosphere and food elsewhere. Also, though this made it very convenient, it seemed like it'd be quite easy to either get onboard and off without paying anything (just tell them you have a reservation and keep your $30), or even get into the brunch and out without paying. The servers seemed so distracted with guests, drink refills, etc, that it was kind of a miracle we kept getting drinks.
Sunday buffet brunch has wide variety of food choices, but the food quality is mediocre. The buffet meal was very costly. Nonetheless, the Queen Mary is worth a visit.. One must overlook the need for maintenance (the wood paneling in the dining room once shined but is now dull; some light fixtures were broken and needed repair--though it is no doubt very expensive or impossible to replace the original fixtures with exact replicas) to imagine the glory years when the ship was on the seas. Overall A WORTHWHILE EXPERIENCE.
My friend and I went to celebrate my birthday.
We had a great time!
The staff is amazing! They are attentive but not in the way.
The Queen Mary has so much history, it was an experience to just walk on board.
The Champagne Sunday Brunch is a little on the pricey side but great for a special occasion.
You truly do get what you pay for sometimes. This Sunday Brunch is NOT for the light wallet at $60 a head, but I HIGHLY recommend the experience. First Class, 5 Star gourmet dining and service that makes you feel as if it's 1948 and you are steaming across the Atlantic aboard this historic ship. If you are in Long Beach for a late breakfast / brunch, this one is truly not to be missed.
The service was great but the food was very disappointing! Very expensive for cold food. The pastas were ice cold and the pancakes were very tough. Also, I would recommend Queen Mary to require a dress code. Some of the guests looked like they just rolled out of bed or came back from an all nighter on the vegas strip.
Went for Sunday Brunch with a group of 8 ladies. Our servers Arturo & Rufugio were great! The ambiance is nice, as there was a harpist in the middle of the restaurant playing softly. Brunch food was typical. Our servers were great about keeping the champagne flowing! Crab legs were thin and a bit rubbery according to my friends. The omelette station only had 4 items (ham, onion, mushroom & cheese) which was very limited. Overall I enjoyed brunch, but do not think it is worth the price.
First time at the Queen Mary for Brunch. Venue is the former Grand salon during its days as an ocean liner. Food choices were many. Italian, Asian, American., Seafood. There was a never ending abundance of Champagne ( actually Prosecco which I prefer). Waiters were attentive. Food was delicious including very nice prime rib. Deserts were varied, including a crepe and sundae bar. Children were welcome as they provided fun kid friendly foods, like Mac and cheese, and chicken fingers. Overall, we enjoyed our experience . Although pricey, I felt the quality and food choices were exceptional.
In addition, one can visit the ships many venues and walk on the promenade deck. it makes for a very pleasant Sunday afternoon.
I will definitely recommend the Queen Mary Champagne Sunday Brunch to all my family and friends. I had the pleasure of going in celebration of my birthday and an amazing time was had by everyone who attended. The food selections were very impressive and the service was great.
I look forward to returning in the near future.
A bit more than some other brunches we've been to as far as comes to the price, but worth it. Excellent food and large selections, including basic American breakfast, Mexican food, Seafood and Sushi, Italian section, salads and carved, perfectly made prime rib and turkey. An array of miniature deserts, pastries and fruit topped off the meal. The service was good. The friendly and attentive staff bussed as soon as dirty plate was down and kept mimosas, waters and coffee coming.
The benefit here is also that you get access to walk around Queen Mary afterwards, which usually has an entrance fee itself. No direct view from the restaurant as the windows consist of portholes, but when you go up on deck you have an amazing view.
The service was outstanding! Jorge and another man always made sure our plates were cleared and glasses were full, and the manager checked in on us too.
As for the food, I recommend eating cold foods unless it is being made fresh (like an omelet) or is under a heatlamp (carving station), because the "hot" foods were either lukewarm or burned to a crisp (they had a rice dish on an electric skillet - burnt cruchy rice isn't great for your teeth).
I wanted to enjoy the room decor because of the beautiful murals and woodwork, but some of the modern things (like a big curtained area they use as a bussing station) really detracts.
The harp player in the middle of the buffet station was a delightful addition...really nice.
The spread was incredible. Could not possibly try everything. There is something for everyone. I am gluten-free and had plenty of options to choose from. Bottomless mimosas and coffee included in the price. The seafood was amazing. Service and ambience were top notch, as well.
The Queen Mary Sunday champagne brunch is an excellent buffet with wonderful staff and the most amazing harpist!
The buffet is quite pricey at $60 per person, plus $15 parking, but the food selection is incredible and is a great choice for a special occasion.
After the buffet, you can walk around the Queen Mary deck, model room, engine room and shops. Tours and special exhibits can be booked onsite if you have extra time.
SO and I made reservations for the Sunday Champagne brunch as a special post-Holiday treat for ourselves, and it was wonderful! We got there early before it was too busy and the atmosphere was so relaxed and elegant (the bottomless mimosas definitely helped). Afterwards we took a leisurely self-guided tour to work off all of the delicious food and the vibe was so laid back. I highly recommend this if you're looking for a romantic daytime date idea!
maybe it's because i had heard so much about the restaurant and the experience that i had high expectations but overall my experience was mediocre at best. to be clear, it is by no fault of anyone or anything. the service was pretty good. they kept my champagne full but were a little on removing our plates. the selection of food was okay but it was nothing to write home about. the ambience was, well, on the bottom level of the ship with no clear view of the water without standing and looking through those small round windows. the live harp musician was lovely. we ended up having to sit in the back of the restaurant near an eye sore of a door because the other free tables had not been cleaned. in short, these things would not have mattered as much if the price tag wasn't so hefty and it wasnt a special day we were attempting to celebrate.
