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.

The food was excellent, our server was very nice and did a very good job. However, the rest of the experience left a lot to be desired for a first class establishment. We arrived on time for our reservation but had to wait 15 minutes to be seated, then once we were seated it was several more minutes until our drink order was taken we did not get drinks until approximately 45 minutes after we arrived. Overall, these issues would not be a big issue if we were eating at Applebees, but this is a high end place charging $100 per person so it’s unacceptable.

Great service. Our server Eric was accommodating and discreet. Never had to ask for drink refills. Interesting food. Kale Caesar was odd, but delicious. Best oyster I ever had, which weren’t on the night’s menu, but are available other days. Eric made it happen. I think I missed out on not getting a steak.

Everything about our experience at Cinder House deserves a 5-star rating. The food and cocktails were incredible. Our waiter gave us so many details about the menu and the history of Brazilian food. He took the time to tell us the difference between each entree. The vibe was so romantic and perfect for a date night. The restaurant made our anniversary special by bringing us champagne and a special dessert. Would highly recommend Cinder House for any special occasion!

What a memorable experience for our 26th anniversary! The calamari and shrimp appetizer was cooked perfectly— as good as any I had in Spain. The orange piri chicken and feijoada entrees were a great introduction to Brazilian-inspired flavors and our cocktails were all unique, delicious, refreshing, and stimulating— the caipirinha, clementina, and seasonal sidecar. The sipping caramel, cookies, and cranberry orange tart were delicious! Our server, Erin, was attentive and friendly without hovering. All the staff we met made us feel welcome and appreciated. We can’t wait to enjoy another meal here in the future.

Awesome venue with great views of the Arch. It is especially fun when you can be on the deck. Our waiter had lots of tables and was not always available. Our entrees came 1 hr 40 minutes after we arrived. The appetizers were better than the entrees. The Branzino was outstanding though.

Christmas Dinner: Food was quite good, service was also quite good. We were seated next to a family with a 2 1/2 year old fidgety child, not really the establishment’s fault, but it was not was I was expecting for a nice dinner with my husband at a fine restaurant. Worst part was the long bench I was sitting on against the wall, the back was so far back that even with 2 pillows behind me it still felt as though I was sitting on a picnic table bench. Would definitely recommend asking for a table with chairs for everyone.

Celebrated a birthday at Cinder House last night, and it was amazing! The staff makes you feel special and the ambiance is beautiful with the holiday decor. The food was the main star of the night! Everything was delicious. Definitely the best meal I have all year. I recommend the scallops - perfect!

Delicious food. Impeccably presented with amazing service. But I wouldn’t expect anything less from a restaurant in the Four Seasons, which we have found the same consistency for all Four Seasons Hotels. Oysters were fresh, steak tartare was delicious. American lamb perfectly cooked, with a seasoned sear

The food was phenomenal!!! To say all four of us left very satisfied was an understatement. The lamb was tender. The steaks cut like butter and the Lobster was something to dream about. Our server Tony was so amazing and patient with our questions. He took great care of us.

Wonderful ambience but a little loud with all the hard surfaces. Our waiter was very attentive without being annoying. The cocktails were wonderful and the wine list is well done, they even have some great bottles from Spain. Now while the food was fantastic, the portions were skimpy (especially lamb) for the price. I would maybe give it another shot but for the price probably not. I originally rated Cinder House four stars, but after reviewing the receipt while balancing my books I noticed they automatically charged a 20% gratuity without informing me. Who charges gratuity on a three top? This is very shady business practice. So the server ended up with a 45% tip. I would beware when you pay your tab.

Came for breakfast and was told it was no longer being served even though several tables were brought breakfast items after we arrived. Nothing on the website or menu indicated breakfast hours stopped at a certain time. I specifically made reservations so I could have brunch, had I known I would have gone somewhere else. Food was unbelievably salty. Staggeringly salty. Couldn't eat it salty. Very disappointed from a four seasons resort.

The decor, the space layout, the cocktail list, and the menu options are all fabulous.
While the Wine List is comparable to the menu items, and expanded list would be nice. Our server last night (11/11) was very pleasant, and accomodating!

We were disappointed that we couldn’t get breakfast at 11:15 on a Sunday. High end restaurants typically have a brunch. We were seated in the bar when only one table was taken in the dining room. This restaurant used to be our go to but honestly not up to par anymore. Love the servers who are seasoned pros there but don’t feel like new team members are trained in customer service befitting a Four Seasons.

We really enjoyed Cinder House. We came 10 min late and had to wait for another 15+ min, which was not so fun, but the bar was available, so it was not hat bad either. The waiter (Anthony) was fantastic and we tried 4 appetizers and 2 main dishes and all were superb. Also good selection of wines by the glass. And of course the view from the restaurant is exceptional. Overall - wonderful experience and we will certainly be back.
