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 kitchen's 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.

We visited New Year's Eve, so granted, there was a special menu which was quite expensive. The 4 course meal had smaller portions than expected. It was definitely a unique experience. They did not accommodate my seating request in the reservation, which was unfortunate. The dessert course was the most disappointing. It was basically a hard almond cookie, with accents. You were served a fork to eat the cookie with, but trying to even cut the cookie was difficult and pieces few into my and my date's lap more than once. With the price of the meal, dessert could have been much better.

We dined here for dinner on December 26 and it was absolutely delicious! The only appetizer I do not recommend are the chicken wings. We tried the duck ribs and chips with onion dip! Both delicious! Some got wagu and I got the orange chicken. Both VERY good! Breakfast on Sunday December 27 was also delicious! The potatoes on the menu are soooo good! Service both times were great! Will definitely be going back!

Cinder House met and exceeded our expectations Saturday night. My husband and I came in for an upscale dining experience (our Christmas present to each other). The staff was attentive, knowledgeable, and kind. We each ordered cocktails, appetizers, and an entree (plus a side). Everything was delicious! We particularly enjoyed the La Senhora cocktail and the filet mignon. We highly recommend Cinder House and can’t wait to be back!

We had our granddaughter with us. She asked for Mac n cheese which they normally do not have. The chef made her some of the best Mac n cheese ever. What a wonderful surprise for her and us.

I have eaten here twice and the service and food were off the charts the first time. This time the entree I received was way over priced with little meat, tons of rice and beans. I could have just went to crazy bowls and wraps. No Somalia anymore, food overpriced for what you get.....all that was there for me was the view.

Really enjoyed our dinner. Ambiance, best in St. Louis. The Squash Soup was over the top and I applaud the uniqueness and will definitely return. Please hold on thru this difficult time. I would suggest more heaters for the patio as it was quite chilly but was able to move tables once someone finished.

It was a great experience. Rooftop with the view. Foods were delicious. Loved the light tapioca flour coated French fries, extra crunchy on the outside. Feijoada bowl was also fantastic. The black beans were amazing with the meaty flavor from ham hock bits. Our server was super nice and helpful and gave us some local food recommendations.
