    Everything was pretty good. The room is very nice, and we were there for 6pm so it wasn’t too loud. The food was good, overall, but for the price, I would have expected homemade fries with the burger- they seemed to be the same cheap ones on the hill. Bison carpaccio and bruschetta were both good and I also had the bread at the table. Elk bolognese was tasty but not hot in temperature. Surprisingly the burger got a “meh” review from my eldest, who is a burger fanatic. No dessert, so can’t comment. It was nice, but I probably wouldn’t go again because the price is just too high.

    Although the ambiance, mood and decor were very nice, we found the food to be a bit over priced especially since the Striploin both my husband and son ordered didn’t appear to be actual striploin - hard to know what the actual cut was? We were quiet disappointed in our server. She didn’t appear to have any personality- almost seemed like we were an inconvenience to her. No smiling eyes (she was wearing a mask). She was blah. When you are spending up towards $500 in a Meal (4 of us) we expect staff to care that we are there. Maybe she was having a bad day? Cocktails were amazing! Very creative.

    A relaxing evening following three daze of looking after three grandchildren. We ordered a Hendrick’s Vesper martini to start. Perfect. While sipping my wife ordered the salmon and I ordered a Rare sirloin steak. I emphasized to Mel, or waitress, RARE. Over my years of ordering Rare steak I have never had it cut in half to show that it was presented “rare”. The items accompanying the meal were well presented. Though, I am not a fan of potato purée squeezed onto the plate. We had two nine oz glasses of wine. For us a perfect amount. Our evening was very relaxing in such a beautiful location.

    The chicken with risotto was very disappointing. The chicken was over-cooked which isn’t terrible. The risotto however, was horrible. It was undercooked, terribly salty (like they just used soy sauce) and the mushrooms seemed like they were rehydrated. Everyone else’s meals were wonderful (steak and burgers) and the appetizers were tasty.

    This restaurant is advertised as fine dining and is priced accordingly. For that reason I’d expect better service and maybe more interesting food. I would not recommend the burger (patty was dry and lumpy) but my elk bolognese was quite good and the Polar salad was very crisp and fresh. Only two choices for red wine by the glass and not a good selection of BC wines by the bottle which is surprising. We liked the Chianti. The atmosphere is not cozy unless you are by the fire. Very high ceilings. The view is good.

    Love The Cirque. Though they still need to step up there game. I ordered the Hanger Steak. It was cooked exactly to my liking. The vegetables that were served had been in an oven or warming tray far too long. The Brussel Sprouts and potatoes were dehydrated. I was not expecting crunchy. My wife’s go to order when we are eating out is a Cesar Salad. The Cirque serves what could be classified as a crouton salad with a small amount of lettuce. I would suggest to the chef that he visit some other establishments to see how a Caesar Salad should be made. Pinterest would also be helpful. The other items we ordered were all to our expected standard. Looking forward to our next visit.

    My experience at Cirque was very disappointing to be honest, as far as the food is concerned! I spent $32 for a steak that didn't come with a steak knife yet needed a saw to cut. It was slightly overcooked and though the flavor was good it was extremely tough. The views helped to make up for it somewhat, but overall I didn't have a good experience and I would not go back. When it came time to leave and I asked for the bill, it took 15 minutes to get it to us. My wife and I both commented to each other as we were leaving it wasn't overly busy so why did it take so long?? We ate our last meal at a pub downtown on Friday night and it was hopping yet when I asked for the bill it was promptly brought along with the machine so I could pay and leave.

    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!
