Cirque at Lizard Creek Lodge
Again pasta and wine special. Great service from host Jessie and her amazing staff. Karin and Chelsea are awesome. Thanks staff.
Another wonderful evening with Jessie manager, Lisa server and Karin host. Two of us had the pasta and wine special with Caesar salad. The other couple had charcuterie board and Caesar salad. Great service and food. A great night. Thanks

Jessie is the manager and our waitress. Always an amazing experience with her, great service, attends to our requests and thanks for getting us the fireplace what a nice addition to our evening. the wine and pasta special is a favorite and last night was very tasty. the charcuterie board was a delicious appetizer. thanks Cirque, great on hill restaurant.
My husband and I loved our meal and experience here! The Elk was amazing and the views were breathtaking.
Every aspect of our evening was perfect. The location. The service. The food. We left determined to return soon.
Beautiful ambiance. Very well taken care of. Plates were very good tasting but some would say small for the value.
Everything about our meal was perfect.
There are many good restaurants in Fernie. The Cirque is the best of the best. Most would have a steep learning curve to reach the same standard.
Great place and really good food, but it took way too long to get our mains and our waitress was nowhere to be seen. The feeling of being forgotten brings down our grade of the entire place.
Great meal after skiing
Good service and food for the price. You could spend the same at the FAR daylodge for standard burgers. If it’s busy it does get loud but still way better than other options!
We had a great meal and the service was very good and unintrusive.
Good selections of wine. We shared the beef wellington and it was spectacular.
Amazing evening by the fireplace. Jessie the manager served us and she is top notch. A special evening being there. Everyone should try this. We did the pasta and wine Tuesday special. Great meal.
I had the Elk Pappardelle and the noodles were over cooked and it tasted bland. My boyfriend had the tenderloin which was tiny with a few vegetables. He left starving. Overall we were underwhelmed.
Great meal and service. Love the ambience of the restaurant. Snowing like crazy outside. Our server Lisa was attentive and cared to our needs. We will be back.
The kids screaming sucked but what can you expect from a ski hill? Great menu. Food was a little slow (maybe just because we had to listen to screaming kids) but worth it. Would definitely come back!
beautiful dining room, server was awesome, food was really really slow getting to us which was surprising because the dining room was not busy. Waitress did her best to keep out drinks fresh. Charging for bread service was disappointing as was the bruchetta that for over 12 dollars was one pice of bread with some sliced up tomatoes with Balsamic Vinegar. The Gnoccii was outstanding, tenderloin was great as well. overall seemed a bit pricy but may have been ok if it didnt take over 3 hours for us to be finished with dinner.
Excellent restaurant away from the crowds. Delicious food, attentive service, perfect place to break for lunch during snowboarding.
New Year’s Day date night (married 38 years!)
Larger group of 8 adults and 7 kids were easily accommodated. Food and drinks were fantastic and priced great.
Only downside was that it took a really long time for appetizers, main course and dessert to arrive even with the restaurant less than 50% capacity.
An amazing place to eat. Great food and awesome staff. Lisa was my server and was attentive and thoughtful. Had the lamb shank and highly recommend it.
Dining experience did not meet our expectations. Very underwhelmed.
In particular , the “Oxtail” aka elk pasta (vbad) and burger (just ok).
Great menu, fresh food, and original drinks.
A nice atmosphere for a special night out or a romantic date.
Great location, good food if limited choices, service was excellent
We love the Cirque. Great pasta and wonderful view of the mountains!
Our steaks were delicious. Perfectly cooked, a good amount, a little pricey but absolutely delicious.
It's a pretty place to eat on the ski hill in Fernie but they don't seem to be able to pull off fine dining there. I think it's just not busy enough at night and keeping staff has to be a challenge too. The meat was overdone and not very flavourful. Mains are $40+ so the quality should be there. The veggie side dishes were great but I wouldn't rush back for dinner. Stick to having a snack and a drink after skiing and go elsewhere for dinner.
My wife and I eat at the Cirque on a regular basis. For this visit we had three guests. One had mussels. She was very pleased by the size of the serving and the sauce. Her one challenge was that her bread was burned and she had to request additional bread. Our second guest had a Ceasar Salad. Since one of our recent reviews was very negative about the Ceasar Salad we were quite apprehensive when she ordered it . Well, The Cirque has really stepped up their game on their salad. It was very impressive and greatly enjoyed by our guest. Our third guest was a child the had the children's spaghetti. The size was perfect.
My wife and I had the pasta special for the evening. Both of us felt that the amount of sauce on the different pasta dishes was inadequate in volume. The taste was fantastic but the small sauce serving made the pasta quite dry.
A wonderful evening was had by all. Thank you Cirque staff
Slightly priced a little high. But we had a great time
Delicious dinners looking out over the peaks and ski hill. Service was excellent. A very enjoyable relaxing evening.
My wife and I had a wonderful meal this evening. She had the salmon. Her most favourable impression was how the salmon had a delightful crust on top yet, was cooked to perfection inside. The accompanying vegetables were well presented and added to the overall dish.
I had the filet mignon. My worry ordering any kind of steak is that it will not be cooked to my request. (over the years at various establishments, I have sent back my steak many times) . Tonight the meat was cooked perfectly to my medium rare request. The presentation with carrots, green vegetable and what I assumed was mashed potatoes, was just right. My measure of the quality was that I scraped my plate to ensure every morsel was consumed.
10 out of 10 tonight for the Cirque at Lizard Creek
Great vibe and location. Has an elegant and high end atmosphere, but is relaxed and informal. Perfect ski resort combination.
We eat at the Cirque on a regular basis, this being our second time in a week. The Brie cheese appetizer was perfect. I had mussels as my main course. The sauce was better than my previous times as the mustard base was nicely balanced. My wife ordered a Caesar salad. To say that it was below expectation would be an overstatement. Caesar salad is always her go-to dish when eating out. Many time in the past, at the Cirque she has been amazed. Hoping that in the future the salad will be more robust than a small amount of chopped up romaine, a few bits and pieces and a microscopic amount of parmesan.
Then the “memo to self” is now to always Check the bill. We were charged $8.00 for water. We had asked for tap water as we were seated, and that’s what we were served. Not fun to be over charged.
Looking forward to our next visit.
Really wanted the lobster and salmon but enjoyed the scallops and halibut. Always a special spot.
Quality food and atmosphere. However we've eaten here several times and unfortunately the servings sizes are small while being high priced. Leaving hungry after a big bill is disappointing.
We keep coming back every year hoping for better, but it hasn't really changed since they renovated the restaurant and lobby - very limited and odd menu, mediocre food at best, hit-and-miss service (mostly tending to miss), and overpriced considering the aforementioned factors.
Ambiance is wrecked by the fact that this is still a hotel lobby. Should not be able to see guests walk by with a 6 pack of beer in their bathing suits while I dine.
Service was very good! Very attentive hosts.
Main course was great! But I would skip the scallop appetizer. Only 4 shriveled scallops which were fairly crispy.
The only thing that spoilt our dinner was the server - not a professional at all, with her attitude plus hair hanging over her face yuk. Found a stray blonde hair in food was not appreciated.
Always a great place for dinner in fernie. Wine and pasta special was excellent
came for the wine and pasta special, great value and beautiful venue
