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 some of the best I’ve ever tasted — excellent! The server was a bit pompous but efficient. The cost for the standard turkey dinner was $13 more than advertised. The overall experience was very good & the food was excellent.

    The atmosphere, service, and food at Cinder House are of exquisite! Appetizers like the lamb ribs had the best flavoring and were fall off the bone, and the appetizer bread is a true game changer. Our ribeye steak was cooked to perfection, and the Swordfish tasted fresh caught with the perfect seasonings and vegetables to compliment. Last but not least, our wait staff were attentive, top quality, and truly enhanced the experience. My best advice would be to listen to the recommendations of your waiter because everything we had was recommended and perfect! I’m looking forward to returning in the near future, and I absolutely encourage everyone to dine here.

    Food was great and service was exceptional. Everyone was very friendly and gracious. The wine was fabulous but a bit overpriced. The view of downtown St Louis was amazing. My Wife and I had a memorable evening at Cinder House - highly recommended!!! One note to those going there - this restaurant is located on the 8th floor of the Four Seasons hotel and accessible thru the elevator, but the address on their website does not make that apparent.

    Cinder house had an amazing ambience. It was dimly lit and quiet so it was a very romantic setting. The service was amazing. Lots of great recommendations and explanations of dishes we were not sure about from our waiter Glenn. The food was also outstanding. Everything we had was 10 out of 10. I will definitely be going back.

    I took my wife to Cinder House for her 41st birthday. We've been to Cinder around 12 times since moving to the midwest from southern California. This is among our favorite restaurants simply on execution and flavors of the dishes. Throw in the ambiance, the fantastic service, and the view of the Arch, and it's probably our favorite restaurant in St.Louis, period. Our household favors asian flavors, but we have learned to trust whatever the chef has on the menu. In our last visit, we had the Octopus salad, the mussel appetizer, the scallops entree, the pork chop, and sweet potato donut for dessert. I can't remember the last time I was so happy with each dish. The total bill came out to around $190 for two. Certainly not cheap, but I've eaten at many more high end hotel restaurants, and this price was in alignment. Last Saturday was a fantastic dinner experience with perfect service.

The drink that I ordered for myself was great too! I also appreciate the server taking care of us! She is very outgoing, engaging and sweet! She's also very understanding when she explains to us about the meals and sides! I will definitely come again some other time!

    Went to St. Louis with friends to each celebrate our anniversaries and chose this place for our anniversary dinner. The view and ambiance was absolutely stunning with a gorgeous view of the city. However, our entire meal took over two hours (just an entree and dessert!). There were plenty of parties that arrived after us yet left before us (and there was only 4 of us). Our friends enjoyed the lamb and filet mignon. However, my husband and I each got the New York strip and it was not worth the $52, especially from a place that claimed multiple times that “red meat was what they do best”. Also, 3/4 of us had stomach issues that night and the morning after, which we all contributed to the food. Disappointed for the price we paid for the meal.

    Went to this place previously when it was Cielo. The service was excellent, as was the food. I found it to be pricey for what you actually get. I ordered a filet that was pretty smallish and it was twice the price I would have expected for what I got. Overall the experience was positive.

    Special occasion (b-day) and special pre-sale event with a guest chef. Drinks and apps on the patio were great, but the 3-course meal (East cost meets Midwest) was a total miss, and the wine pairings (6 pours for the 3 courses) were very difficult to figure out. Fortunately, we know from prior experience that the normal menu is very good. This special menu was not. Service was still excellent.
