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 husband and I decided to do a date night, and, as always, it was a great. The “La Branca” was a delicious cocktail, service was attentive, friendly and knowledgeable, and the food was delectable!

I am very picky and usually not pleased with food when I go out to eat because I know how to cook and have very high expectations. Cinder house exceeded my expectations with everything. The waygu I got was hands down the best meal I have ever had made made for me. Thank you!!! We will most definitely be back!

We decided to try Cinder House for our anniversary. The meal was fantastic- from the inventive cocktails through to the dessert. Definitely a South American flare with the wood fire grilled food and seasonings.

Brought 8 people with me who had never been to Cinder House as we celebrated my 62nd bday. The rooftop was not crowded and we ate outside. Ordered 4 appetizers -- they were nice but now WOW. Then 8 entrees: pork chop, wagyu beef, tuna, piri chicken and not one of my friends nor myself had anything good to say about the food. Actually, nobody said anything good or bad until the entire event was over. That's when I discovered that it wasn't just my meal. Nobody was impressed (they each paid for their own meals). The food was beautifully prepared and the presentation was excellent, however, I'm quite sure that the spice cabinet was locked and even the salt and pepper was nowhere to be found that night by the Chef. Bland doesn't even begin to describe it. So disappointing. No moaning over a single bite by anyone. Not only that, but I was surprised to see a 20% tip by the waiter instead of the 18% that was listed on their website. Many of us worked in the hospitality industry in our younger days so we don't have a problem tipping well but honestly we all felt that he didn't even try to give us good service because he knew his tip was guaranteed. He didn't once come to the table and ask us if the food was okay, did we need another drink, etc. I did address with Matt, the manager, my concerns and he agreed to adjust the bill 2% for wrong tip amount and said he wasn't aware that the 18% was listed on their website. He didn't seem to me to be genuinely sorry that these 9 people didn't have an outstanding experience or for the bland food, the poor service or the upcharge on the tip. He only offered a coupon for a drink and app if I come back. Sorry, we won't be back. Unfortunately you know how it goes when you have a bad situation -- people are more apt to tell 10 people it was bad than they are to tell 1 person it was great.

Very good cuisine by Chef Craft/Hotel Kitchen Staff and an outstanding Sommelier in Anthony Geary. One unacceptable new practice that I was very disappointing with was that they did not offer complete Bread & Butter, anymore. It needs to be available one way or the other even if it is offered as a side item.

First of all, great job on making people feel safe during these COVID times. Magnificent time on the patio! We ordered all the appetizers along with drinks. The drinks were delicious and on point. We didn’t get (and weren’t charged for) the onion dip, so I cannot speak to that. The other apps were phenomenal and even good, reheated as leftovers. We will be going back here soon. I felt very COVID safe.

The location over the Mississippi River is outstanding. We had a warm, sunny day in February. Some people were eating outside, but we sat by the huge window and enjoyed the sun and view. Our service and food for breakfast was great.
