    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.

    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.

    The restaurant was amazing. My only negative is the view and the fact that we could not see it ! There were 4 of us and we were seated where the view from the 16th floor was not available. That was a bit disappointing.

    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.

    The food was good, and the view was great! They ask you if you are there for a special occasion and we told the. It was our anniversary. The predictably put a piece of chocolate on our dessert that read "happy anniversary." It was a nice touch. My only real complaint was with the service. Not the lack of service, but the non stop over the top service. We told u we were there for our anniversary, leave us alone. We made the mistake of telling them it was our first time at the restaurant and our waitress, who seemed tipsy, explained in detail the process of cooking everything we ordered. It became belittling at some point. It was our first time at Iridescence, not our first time at a fancy restaurant.

I vibe was classy as was the setting. I will definitely be going back again soon.

    Ordered filet and lobster. Second time in a row the lobster was a bit tough and stringy. The beef is very good. Did not care for the "warm potato salad" Seemed like dried up tiny redskin potatoes which was lukewarm and bland. Would have preferred the whipped potatoes. First time iz wa a bit disappointed in the meal.

    I ordered the dry aged New York strip medium. It was brought to me well done, informed our waitress. She offered to fix another one & also told her manager who came to our table. He apologized, offered to correct it but also blamed the poor lighting on the appearance of the steak. The soup,& salad were average at best. The staff on the other hand were great & a lot of fun. I doubt if we will go back.

    This Sunday Brunch was our very first experience. We were not disappointed. The concept for serving the brunch allowed one-on-one conversations with the servers, who shared how each dish was prepared. This ideal allowed us to make better decisions on our food choices, as well as experience new foods we might not otherwise taste. As one of our dinning guest required reasonable accommodations, this stylish presentation was quite special for their dinning enjoyment. The atmosphere, staff, and food were superb. We even shared our dinning experience through photos taken, for our family and friends on FaceBook. This is as must do on anyone's list, visiting Detroit. We are looking forward to our next Sunday Brunch in the near future.

    We wanted someplace special for our 40th wedding anniversary and Iridescence was an excellent choice. Very classy place, excellent menu choices and extremely friendly, knowledgeable and professional wait staff. Everyone we encountered (host at the entrance, waitress, support staff and the manager) made us feel special. The food was very good (both taste and presentation) and the wine recommendation by the manager was excellent. The best compliment I can give this restaurant is: "We will come back again, it was worth the money".
