A beautiful room, delicious cocktails, and delicious food. Except for the hostess who perhaps has not been trained in the importance of first contact, the service was excellent.

Had a lovely early evening dinner sitting by the windows with a great view of the hills. We really enjoyed our time here.
The food and service was great.

Beautifully appointed space with soaring views of the mountains. The beef tenderloin was really fantastic. A thin wine list, possibly due to covid19, otherwise we loved our experience.

I eat at The Cirque on a regular basis. The food and service is always 4.5 Star.
My recent meal is going to receive a very poor review.
I ordered the rack of lamb, medium. The lamb was cooked perfectly.
That cannot be said for the”slop” that was then on the plate. Please refer to the accompanying picture.
The chef must think that plating is an opportunity to demonstrate his creativity. No. He is presenting food to be eaten by paying customers.
When I eat vegetables I want to eat something that looks, tastes, and is recognizable as one. In this case it was pureed something or other, squirted out of a cake decorating squeeze into two circles onto a cold plate.
At least the roasted onion looked like one and was tasty.
I have mentioned in past reviews about the kitchen serving on a cold plate.
To the chef, we are there to eat food. Not art!

Service was great, the was prepared fresh, the Elk Ribeye, BISON CARPACCIO fantastic. The Elk must be prepared with an infrared salamander auto broiler. Crème brûlée and STICKY DATE TOFFEE PUDDING were the put me to bed sugared up finish. Thanks for the great week. We will be back soon.

Beautiful space and view but that’s about it. I don’t think anyone in our party of 6 was impressed with their food at all. The risotto was dry and tasted like straight truffle oil. Eggplant croquettes were a mushy texture, were cold, and didn’t have much flavour. Wings were overcooked. Definitely room for improvement. Would not recommend.

Asked for recommendations and the waitress said she couldn’t really give any because she was a vegetarian. Started with a ceasar for a drink that was really bad, was told that they make their own Clamato so they get that teaspoon. I wanted to try the Elk but they didn’t have it so I went with steak medium, it came to the table blue rare which they should have seen being the cut in half before serving for some reason. Wife and 2 others had chicken pasta which they all said was terrible. 2 kids had burgers which they said were good. I would never come back or recommend this restaurant which is too bad being it was the only real fine dining on the hill and we were staying in a ski in ski out resort.

Food was overpriced for what we ordered. Server was non enthusiastic!! Decor was plain and outdated. Looks as the spent their entire decorating budget on chandeliers and left the rest of the place in the late nineties... What’s with that ugly carpet?? Seriously!!. After going to numerous other restaurants in Fernie we will never return to Cirque again. Thank you but nooooo thank you

My wife and I eat at The Cirque on a regular basis. There is something special about The Cirque that makes us keep returning. Firstly, the ambiance, with the mountain views, moving inside to the decor is far above any other eating establishment in Fernie and many other locals.

Then there is the food. Everything from the menu to food presentation is at the 4.5 star level of Lizard Creek Lodge.

I must, however, note one very small critique. And this is the second time I have made it. Hopefully, the kitchen will take note and make adjustments. With hot meals preheat the plate before plating the food. I had a pasta special. It was exceptional. But, the food around the edge was cold compared to that in the middle of the pasta.

Looking forward to our next visit.

Food was tasty but the elk ribeye was very petite.
Nice flavour but I was still hungry when I was done. Beautiful fireplace, great service and a nice evening out.

Really enjoyed our dining experience. With Covid, we hadn't dined out since November. Tables were well spaced and health protocols followed. View out to the ski hill and the decor is very nice. Food was delicious. The serving staff were attentive, friendly and professional.

The Cirque is part of the complex where my wife and I live. As such, we eat there regularly. Tuesday's are their Pasta and wine special.
This week the choice we chose was Chicken Parmesan. Oh my, it was spectacular.

I recommend The Cirque to all of the Lizard Creek Lodge guests. No one will be disappointed.
