    We have eaten at Iridescence a handful of times, each time everything has been flawless. From the moment you arrive you are treated like royalty, from seating (there is not a bad seat in the place), to the man who fills the water, the wait staff, and the FOOD... everything is impeccable! On this specific trip my boyfriend ordered the 28 day aged Strip steak, which tastes like butter. I ordered the Thai seafood dish which was, out of this world, good. Although a tad pricey, it is worth every penny! Anyone who visits MUST save room for the dessert, the pastry chef is AMAZING! I would not, and can not, come up with a single bad word to say about Iridescence. I highly recommend this place for a evening out while in Detroit!

    Disappointed in table placement , especially when I made reservations. Waiter , big guy, made the dining experience well worth the evening. Steaks were prepared properly. The vegetables and potatoes that were part of the meal was so so. Again, waiter was excellent.

    Beet salad and bread basket were great, both of the main entree's were marginal. I had the New York strip and it was very lacking in flavor. My wife had the lobster, it was ok but the seasoning and flavored butter ruined it. All in all the service was great, the ambiance was very nice, the drinks were very good as well, but the food was very lacking. Was just at the NOVI chop house and had almost the exact same meal for the same price, it was by far superior in every manor.

    Through my years of traveling to the major cities in the U.S. and having the good fortune to enjoy fine dining...it is at best hit or miss. Iridescence is an absolutely amazing restaurant...so delighted with the attention to detail. Our server Helio was so delightful and made us feel like we were the only two there. He is truly an asset to the restaurant...you can see he enjoys working there and took the time to bring out dishes that we trusted him to select. Everything we sampled was well made...the presentation unique...but not experimental. An A+++++!

    Although our waiter worked very hard, it appears the waitstaff was " short" that evening and we endured long waits between our cocktails, salad, entree and wine selections. Overall, the experience was " good ", but not our usual " excellent " experience....

    Perfect spot for date night although the food was below average. For the price I expect outstanding and this was not. Lobster was just ok and for the price of $83 for just the entree I was hoping for amazing and it was not. Our waitress did provide outstanding service.

    Views were great. Food was not fabulous at all. I had to send my 1st plate back and get something else. NY strip needed seasoning and sauce. Asked waiter for salt and pepper and she felt insultated. For the money, wish I had gone somewhere else. You will get lost trying to get to the restaurant. No signage or guidance.

    My fiance and I had never been to Iridescence before, but we had heard of it. Needless to say, I didn't know what to expect. My expectations were exceeded! When we walked in, the staff was courteous and helpful. The decor was unequaled and lovely. When we ordered, our food was brought in a timely manner. Desert was especially fabulous. To put it lightly, it would be the highlight of my year to dine there again!!!

    Very disappointing! Appetizers and salads set the stage for a wonderful dinner . . . which arrived COLD. The steak was a delicious cut of meat but everything was cold, including the potatoes and veggies. Jayme, our server, took it back to the kitchen where I believe it was nuked. Just not what you would expect for those prices!! And no one from the kitchen staff followed up on the meal and no adjustments were made to our bill. We will not be going back to Iridescence. Server was OK . . . not great . . . just OK.

    View is amazing, service was top notch, atmosphere is perfect. The food is very good but it misses something keeping it from being excellent. At the price point I expected more excellence. The tuna carpaccio was good. The caesar salad was not impressive. The best part was the steak, however my New York strip was precut into little strips which I did not like, it was cold by the time I had even 1/4 of it but it was very delicious.

    I ate here all alone for my 35th Birthday. I was greeted by my First Name at arrival, seated in a cozy spot for one with a great view, given a very knowledgeable, attentive, sweet, and patience waitress, served a great tasting meal and drink then to top it all off... Someone paid for my meal at the end of my evening. I'd have to say it was a GREAT experience.

    My husband and I chose to finally make our way to Iridescense last Fri night. Now, we are kicking ourselves for not going sooner! Our server, Oneta, was awesome. Once she found out we were adventurous eaters, she quickly recommended the chef's choice 7 course meal. It was amazing! Add that to a nice bottle of wine and our bill was around $300, but worth every penny. We would definately eat there again.

    This time we went for our anniversary with another couple. There are many new menu items and we tried 6 of them and a special. All were excellent! Oysters on the half shell had an amazing flavor added, Kusshi Oyster Trio was a treat- includes an oyster shooter...sooo good, the filet was served on top of a large amount of yummy garlicky truffled potatoes and other veggies along with a sauce to die for, the Florida grouper was a large portion big flake fish served on top of a flavorful rice with spicy kale and a wonderful sauce, the dry aged ny strip melted in your mouth, the stuffed lobster special is a must try and the tirimasu dessert has 5 different desserts on one plate! Cannot wait to return for some more.
