Lovely restaurant with breathtaking views of the mountains. Service and food both very good. Menu features local flavours - our party ordered Elk chops, Halibut, steak, Seafood Linguine and everyone was very satisfied. They also make a mean cocktail - try the Garden Gimlet. There's a small Ice Bar which could be fun if you were staying in the hotel... More

We came here for our anniversary and were really happy with our whole experience. Our server was very accommodating and personable. He also could make one heck of a cocktail. The butternut squash and goat cheese risotto was really decadent and flavorful. Perfect place for a special evening out.

I wasn't going to review CirQue based on the many times we ate at CirQue throughout the winter season and decided I would wait until Summer to see if they are finally running on all cylinders. I cant say that we had any horrible experiences at CirQue during the Winter season, however everytime we went it was a totally different... More

We sat outside, enjoyed the view for hours while sipping well made cocktails, Bottingtons and truly enjoyed freshly grilled burgers. A perfect Saturday afternoon. The kids played in the pool while the adults connected and celebrated our friends birthday. Fabulous

I was with some friends for a golf trip in Fernie and someone in the group suggested we try this place for dinner. I had no idea what to expect which added to the sheer enjoyment of my experience. We went for the "Chef's choice" which included a delicious duck appetizer, followed by a perfectly cooked steak and a cheese... More

Came here on business and found the bar and restaurant staff warm and welcoming. Good selection of drinks, warm fireplace and amazing mountain scenery. Dinner was a limited "fixed" menu but delightful. I had the elk ribeye for entree and deep fried cheesecake for desert, then retired to the comfortable bar for evening nightcaps. The staff (Megan) and Manager (Aileen)... More

We had lunch at the renovated Cirque restaurant and really enjoyed ourselves. We were greeted by Aileen, who always makes us feel welcome. Our server was friendly and attentive. The atmosphere was lovely, the restaurant having been renovated recently. We were happy to see that the gorgeous stone fireplace remained, as a centrepiece of the room. It was lovely to... More

My Husband and I have stayed at the lizard creek lodge 4 times over the past few seasons and where very impressed with the recent upgrades made to the restaurant. The bar area is great Apres Ski and they still have that great fire. They menu lacks vegetarian options but our food was delicious. A little on the pricey side... More

So this was my first meal there since the Reno/change over. It is such a beautiful place even before the Reno. And before they had an excellent lobster sandwich I was really looking forward to, but sadly this was no longer available on their now "micro-menu"! I had a mushroom russoto which was quite frankly terrible. I had to add... More

Hi Charmaine, I am sorry to hear our wild mushroom risotto was not to your liking. We have found our guests have a wide range of salt preference and therefore provide salt on the tables so guests can add if needed. King oyster mushrooms are the ones on top of our risotto and are known for being quite fibrous. We... More

Just another RCR food service outlet. You will be let down by substandard service, unkept premises and a menu that sets high expectations only to disappoint. The ice bar is cool. not exactly what i'm looking for after a cold day on the slopes.... might be nice on a hot summer day.. But chances are it won't be open in... More

Hi Ryland, I'm really sorry you were let down with your visit to Cirque. Myself and the Cirque team are really passionate about elevating the dining experiences available to all guests on the ski hill.
