    we tried the kaesecki 7 course Chef choice dinner. Absolutely amazing experience. Having the head Che of the restaurant come and explain his dish table side was a step above any dining experience. Courteous staff, professional, yet very helpful, amazing dishes....melt in your mouth. The best dining experience I have ever had.

    We met up with a couple with whom we had known & kept in touch with over the years, but had not formally sat down together to visit for twenty plus years! It was a fabulous three hours of catching up and reminiscing... all made more enjoyable by excellent food, atmosphere, and service. Iridescence was the perfect place for this special evening.

    Ambiance/view is a given. So no extra points here. Service from multiple staff (host, wine steward, primary server, water/bread staff, those who delivered our courses) was outstanding. All very helpful/knowledgeable, well trained AND had great personalities. All tried to make our experience as good as it could be. All of our courses were "works of art" in terms of make-up and plate presentation (all skillfully explained and presented). Nothing disappointed. Great evening in every regard -- well . . . could have used a little more cowbell. But other than that -- wonderful.

Service was top notch and extremely knowledgeable on everything they have to offer. Steak was the most tender I have ever had. Will definitely dine here again.

    WE had a large group of 8 to celebrate a 21st Birthday. The restaurant is quite beautiful and the view is lovely. Our servers were exceptional and attentive. Food was good. Enjoyed the lively atmosphere, but was not so loud that a conversation could not be carried on. All in all, a lovely evening.

    From the service to the food the total experience was enjoyable. For a restaurant with a 'view', I think the interior lights could have been a little lower. Because of the lights, it was a bit hard to see out.

    My wife and I opted for Iridescence for our 45th anniversary and were not disappointed. Had a nice glass of wine and appetizer in the bar and were seated on time and in a great location. Only problem so far was the seats by the window, no backs to speak of and hard to arrange properly. The staff were prompt without rushing us and answered all questions. Excellent wine menu. Dinner was excellent - wife had the lamb - two ways and I had the filet - both were done exactly as we asked. The view of the Detroit skyline at night was wonderful. Overall it was exactly what she wanted for our anniversary.

    This was our second visit to Iridescence, and it was every bit as good as expected. My wife had the Chilean sea bass and I had the filet and they were both excellent. Service was very good-wait staff attentive, knowledgable and friendly. Impressive wine list with something for every taste. We had theater tickets, so we didn't have time for the seven course mystery dinner, but we will be making a return trip soon specifically to experience that.

    The City view rivals that of any other major metropolis, creating a spectacular setting for a great dining experience. The service was attentive and efficient. I can say that iridescence can hold its own in any major restaurant town such as Chicago or New York. It is the high water mark for upscale dining in Detroit. We will be going again soon!

    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!

    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+++++!
