The Four Seasons St Louis is partnering with James Beard Award winning Chef Gerard Craft to bring you Cinder House. The menu centers around the kitchens 14 ft wood-burning hearth. Located on the iconic 8th floor of Four Seasons Hotel St. Louis, Cinder House showcases sweeping views of the Gateway Arch and downtown skyline.

“Some foods taste so much more complex when cooked on a wood fire,” Craft says. “Grilling is a universal technique so the menu reflects many different cultures but the food will be heavily influenced by the grilling mecca of South America.”

Craft’s focus on simple foods with bold flavors is highlighted throughout the menu and includes several steak selections and rotating grilled items. From grilled pickles to grilled lamb ribs in soy, lime and garlic with a mango-honey glaze, dishes feature enticing techniques and flavors.

Dine indoors with warm wood and stone interiors or venture out onto the new outdoor lounge and upbeat bar area.

    My wife and I went here for an anniversary. Parking was simple and easy although we were there on a sunday. Going into the 4 seasons entrance made it very easy. Food was delicious. Waiter was prompt and knowledgeable. We were able to go outside once we finished eating and enjoyed the views of the Mississippi and the skyline. All in all it was a great meal with great service. Not much more I could ask for.

    Went for our anniversary and everything was wonderful. We chose the kale caesar and crab ceviche - both excellent. The lamb rack and the scallops did not disappoint. For dessert panna cotta and torte. All exquisite. Service was attentive. The space is a little loud, but didn't prevent my sweetie and I from having a normal conversation at our table when seated side by side.

    We were visiting from out of town and came here for brunch. The unlimited continental breakfast had really delicious mini chocolate croissants and great meat and cheese choices. Our drinks were great too. For the entrees we got the crab eggs Benedict And the steak and eggs. The Benedict was tasty and I enjoyed the crab. I also really enjoyed the potatoes that came with it. The steak and eggs missed the mark. The steak, although tender, lacked basic seasoning. Also we didn’t even know what the cost of the brunch was until we got our check since there was no price on the menu that I could find. It was $45 regardless of what you got, drinks not included. I was celebrating a birthday so I got a nice little birthday card. Other than the steak and eggs, it was otherwise tasty. The service was good and the ambiance was nice. The view was also good. But we definitely wouldn’t get the steak and eggs again.

    Taking away an ala carte menu and going to a $39.99 menu to cover a few pieces of fruit, breads, pastries and some very strange meat and cheese slices, with a previously priced $19.99 entree is definitely not worth the price for breakfast Will not be back with that price point.

    We celebrated my gfs birthday. We had cocktails on the patio before we sat down on the dining side of the patio. We were enjoying the weather and ourselves so much that we then went back to the other side of the patio after dinner for an after dinner drink. We had a lovely evening!!!

    We went to Cinder House for Mother’s Day brunch. The food was incredibly overpriced for the quality and portion provided. A small assortment of four desserts, two types of muffins and a croissant do not make the difference in price. The ambiance is nice, but the quality of food and the unjustifiably high prices, will make me think twice before I return to this restaurant.

    Overall it was a decent experience. The restaurant was clearly understaffed, however the hostess did an amazing job of taking care of us. She not only seated us, but was practically our server too. She went above and beyond for us. Would return.

    Had a business lunch. Started with the Jalea plate - delicious. Then burgers and chicken sandwiches - all very good. The setting is really pretty. Wish it had been nicer so we could have been seated outside. I would 100% go back.

    Cinder house was amazing! It was mine and my boyfriend's 3 year anniversary and they made us feel so special as they greeted us with a happy anniversary, and say goodbye with some chocolate fudge. The food was absolutely amazing and the restaurant itself was extremely nice. I will definitely be going here again.

    The staff was friendly and accommodating. They read our notes we submitted on OpenTable and were prepared. The food was outstanding, but it was disappointing that we ordered cheese biscuits and never got them. The staff was apologetic, and their reasoning sound, so I’m not pointing fingers — I was just looking forward to them! They have SO many wonderful gf options on their menu, so it was surprising that they were lacking in gf desserts, but you can’t have everything! Great meal!

    First off, hats off to the service; it was flawless. I ordered the wood fired strip steak; it was a huge disappointment. I can do better with a $12 steak from ALDI and my cast iron pan--and remember, I'm not exactly a professional steak cook. The steak was also served cut up. That also annoyed me. I'm probably not the only one annoyed by that right? The ambiance was top notch befitting all the aspirational rich and the actually rich people eating there. Don't get the steak.

    Beautiful setting, with setting Sun glinting off the Arch. Very good service. Food was quite excellent. Swooned at both beet salad and kale Caesar. Pork chop was fantastic, and swordfish special perfectly cooked. I am a flan fan, and theirs was possibly the best I’ve ever had. If it’s in your budget, definitely go.

    Made a reservation and still have to wait about 20 minutes to be seated. However, aside from that snafu the experience was incredible. Excellent food, excellent service, great scenic views. We enjoyed it immensely. It was a bit pricey but that is to be expected from an establishment like this. Worth it!

    I made reservations for Cinder House to celebrate my girlfriend's birthday and included that information in the reservation. All the staff we saw throughout the entire evening wished her a happy birthday and they even wrote her a birthday card. I saw several other guests with cards for anniversaries and other special occasions- I thought that was a very nice touch. Our waiter was extremely knowledgeable and was able to steer us in the right direction with our wine and dinner selections. Everything we ordered was incredible- highlights were scallops and espresso martini. Cannot recommend Cinder House enough!

    First rate bar staff with great selection of beers, whiskey, and craft drinks. Attention to detail by wait staff, changing silver wear with each course. We didn't feel rushed at all by the staff and kept the pace as we desired/expressed. Food was cooked to perfection with nice caramelizing on the meats. Valet parking at the Four Seasons was covered by getting your parking ticket stamped at the restaurant. Just had to tip the valet upon leaving. Great view over the Arch grounds from the attached patio. Highly recommend this restaurant.
