Inventive preparation/presentationVery high quality ingredients, creative preparation, perfect saucing, and professional presentation. Entrees (fish, chicken), salads and appetizers were simply exceptional. The only mis-step was the dry aged ribeye, which lacked flavor and texture. All in all, however, this was a superb Mother's Day choice. We will be returning on another special occasion. Kudos to the kitchen.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was Beautiful ! Me andIt was Beautiful ! Me and my mom had a wonderful time at the mothers day brunch. I cant wait to come back for a romantic date ! It was beautiful !5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMlove the placeLove everything in this place, from the time we get in to the time we leave, service is very good and the food is great. I recommend it to everyone.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Birthday OuttingI took my fiancée to Iridescence for her birthday which proved to be an excellent choice. The view from the top floor at Motor City Casino was amazing only surpassed by the excellent service and the creativity of the meals. The price was a bit more then I had expected so it may not be a weekly event. But certainly once a month is not out of the question. For two of us including drinks and tips it ran about $150.00. But like I said....I'd both recommend it and go back in a heart beat.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMHelio's Delivers Exquisite ServiceOur waiter was superb and made us feel special. We even told him to just pick the wine because he is that good!
Highly recommended for foodies and anyone who wants to be wowed by not only outstanding food, but above and beyond service. Also note that Chef Benjamin is truly a world class chef and we will be back. I highly recommend the motherboard appetizer. Thank you to all the Chef's and Staff.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulous experienceThis was our first time dining here and it won't be the last. We really enjoyed all three courses we had, The Cyclical salad was the most innovative I've ever had. The salmon was outstanding and the tropical fruit sampler for dessert was just superb. We really liked the coconut chocolate chip ice cream and the passion fruit creme brulee. The service as well as ambience just made the evening perfect.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMWow!We loved the ambience and decor of the restaurant. It has such a beautiful view of the city. The bread basket was divine. We really liked the customer service provided by our server, Helios. He was very knowledgeable and professional. We would definitely go again.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMSkylineGreat food, staff, and what a view. Can't wait to dine there again.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMLots of food. No room for dessert.Very good service. Pricey but worth it for special occasion.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMStaff is outstanding, fromStaff is outstanding, from the hostess to the wait staff - everyone is helpful and PLEASANT - a tough combination to find - definitely 4 DIAMOND service. The food is divine - jumbo shrimp cocktail - mmmm. Scallops that melt in your mouth. The beef dishes are grand - 24oz ribeye could feed a party of 4. Chateaubriand huge. Our party of 4 had leftovers the next day. The best lamb dish I've had in years...sorry Greektown!!5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMIridescence is one of theIridescence is one of the top restaurants in the city. We go often and we've never been disappointed (well, the kale that accompanied my whitefish was just a tad salty). The food is always great, the service impeccable and the setting spectacular. Go for a romantic evening, a special occassion, take friends or out of towners - you can't miss.4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMWOWZERSP-H-E-N-O-M-I-N-A-L. Hands down the best DRW experience to date. My husband and I celebrated our birthdays in a window seat for two. It is a bit hard to convince him to go downtown since he's not from Michigan (PHX) and isn't impressed with Detroit AT ALL. However, on this joyous occasion, he couldn't keep from closing his eyes to savor the food and tell me that we will definitely be back here. I had to stop him from licking the plate ;) We are foodies at heart and all 3 courses were delicious. I can't wait to come back and experience the regular menu - especially the gost cheese & beet salad. The ambiance is classy from the parking to the top floor. The night time view and service were equally wonderful. THIS is how you do it Detroit!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent! Nothing more toExcellent! Nothing more to say, if you haven't been there it is a must place to eat.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMGorgeous ViewGorgeous view. Was slightly disappointed that I made a note during my reservation that I preferred a table next to the window, we were seated more in the middle if the room and within 5 minutes there were multiple window tables open for the remainder of our meal, I would have waited a few extra minutes for the table we wanted next to the view we paid for. Overall I was impressed with the food and service.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMTop Kat & Goldie love IridescenceMy wife and I dined at Iridescence for our 11th anniversary. We had a window-side table with a breathtaking view of Detroit, the river and across to Canada. It was Detroit Restaurant Week and we partook of the prix fixe menu. We had the good fortune to get Bao Ly as our server. She remembered us from three years ago. I had the Bouillabaise and my wife had the Caprese - both appetisers were awesome. She had the whitefish and I had the braised beef rib. Once again, excellent, with really nice presentation. Executive Chef Benjamin Meyer was nice enough to share how to make the creamy, delicious polenta they had prepared. Finally, the peanut butter mousse, banana ice cream & chocolate wafer dessert was a decadent ending to a superb meal.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMPhenomenal view, very chicPhenomenal view, very chic and well presented. Elegant presentation of all dishes. The waitress was great, let us try the wine before buying a bottle, very helpful in selecting dishes since she had tried them herself. Appetizer of bouillabaisse was fantastic, had the whitefish for dinner. Great portion sizes, and incredibly flavor ful. The peanut butter bar dessert was fabulous. Even the bread was artisanal. Fantastic choice for restaurant week, great value for the money. Based on the normal restaurant prices, not sure if I'd go for their regular menu. Might go back for appetizers and wine flights at the bar.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMVery good food, drinks andVery good food, drinks and service. Pricey but worth it for a special occaision.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMWhile the service was topnotchWhile the service was topnotch and the view breathtaking, the food was just so-so and extraordinarily expensive.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMIridescence Has It AllIridescence has it ALL. The food is outstanding. I have never had a more well thought out and prepared meal. Everyone in my party declared their food excellent. The appetizer of pork belly nacho served in a mini fry pan was not only visually beautiful, but delicious. Main course of short rib was full of complex flavors that worked perfectly together. Peanut butter chocolate bar doesn't totally describe the dessert which also has a banana foster, salted peanuts and a mini ice cream scoop! Service can only be described as impeccable! Our waitperson knew details about each dish, made thoughtful recommendations and was incredibly attentive without being bothersome. Each time one of us got up from the table our napkin was refolded!4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMWe liked the place but feltWe liked the place but felt that it was over priced The food was good and the view was great. If you do go I recommend going when it's darker the lighting in the place is neat and the city view is pretty.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMWe really appreciated beingWe really appreciated being able to go to Iridescence during Detroit Restaurant Week. This is a place we would not have been able to afford otherwise and certainly enjoyed the entire experience.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMExceeded my expectations.Exceeded my expectations. Very nice place to dine and take a special date.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMAward Winner!We brought our son visiting from Vancouver to enjoy a nice dinner with a view. All of our food selections were excellent. He mentioned the Bouillabaisse was the best he has ever tasted. The wine suggested by our server - a 2002 Penfold Bin 707 Cab Sav from Australia was smooth and rich. Wait staff was attentive, discreet and professional. The restaurant has a lovely ambiance and you could hear the piano player during dinner which was very relaxing. Definately a night he will remember!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent experience.

Would definately reccommend for a romantic/speical occassion.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food but too expensiveGood food but too expensive except for restaurant week for what you get.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMA group of us went for RestaurantA group of us went for Restaurant Week and it was wonderful. Great food, good wine, excellent service, amazing view. I would definitely go back again.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMOur group really enjoyed ourOur group really enjoyed our meal here. I think we all ordered off the DRW menu and really enjoyed our dining experience. I will say I was not as impressed as I usually am by my main dish. I'm vegetarian and have loved the 5 other times I ate here, but this time the main course did not meet my usual expectations for dishes here. It was nice but not what I'm used to...4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had and excellent experienceWe had and excellent experience at Iridescence. We all agreed it was pretty pricey but worth it. Our waiter, Helios, was outstanding. He really added to the wonderful meal.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AM4starsExcellent food, service, waitress was very knowledgeable and helped us make the right selection. The slider was delicious. First time at a four star restaurant, the portions are not what you find in most restaurant. So don't be surprised by the portion size, but you are paying for the ambience and quality of the food.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMFor a wonderful experience go to---The service was outstanding and the food was great. You absolutely get what you pay for from Iridescence. Our waitperson, Oretha, was very attentive and made sure everything was great.

Pricey but nice.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMDetroit GemJust a lovely Detroit gem. The magnificient view of the city from the window tables will surprise many. Menu items are high end which should be expected. However bar prices are reaonable, if not less or at least competitive with less fancy places locally or in other major cities. Excellent wait staff! This is my second visit and I will return for another special dining evening.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMWOW!This was our first time there. The food as well as the presentation was fabulous. Next time we will make reservation for nighttime, so we can see the city lights.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMWindow seats are too high--wholeWindow seats are too high--whole area needs to be cut down about 12 inches and have regualr tables along windows4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything was wonderful acceptEverything was wonderful accept both mine and my wife's steaks were over cooked.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic experience! JamieFantastic experience! Jamie was an amazing waitress.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat 1st ExperienceMy husband and I went for our 11th anniversary and it was a very nice experience. I had one of the specials of the night which was 16 oz of lamb, medium well. My husband had 24 oz. New York strip steak, well done, which was succulent. The crab cake appetizer was delicious and flaky. I wasn't expecting corn in it but it was still good. My husbands Caesar salad left a lot to be desired, very plain and bland, but that was the only downside to the meal. Chocolate mousse for dessert was rich, smooth, and creamy and they put a little chocolate wafer that said Happy Anniversary on it - nice touch!
Our server, Bao Ly, was a delight. She was very knowledgeable about the menu & appropriately attentive. We will be back.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had the Chef's TastingWe had the Chef's Tasting menu, and highly recommend it...worth every penny.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMRachelle Ferrell Concert NightWe were excited about attending the Rachelle Ferrell concert at Sound Board, so Iridescence became the convenient and classy choice for pre-concert dining with our cousins. It was a wonderful experience! Jaimie, our server was a delight and our meals were not only beautifully presented, but also delicious! Oh, and the best part...Rachelle Ferrell was enjoying her pre-concert meal at the table right next to our!!!!!!!!

We were promptly seated at exactly five o'clock. Our server Othelea (sp) was fantastic. We got the Yellow Fin Tuna Carpaccio for an appetizer and it was simply amazing. For our entrèes we each had the New York Strip. They were both prepared perfectly and tasted wonderful. For desert we had the Peanut Butter Bar and it was certainly more decadent than the relatively mundain name suggests. Presentation at Iridesence is awesome and the wine list is top notch. We will be back for special occasions or for no reason at all!!3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMSoupmore than one choice of soup is preferable
all else was great. Steak and lobster prepared perfectly
not quite sure what #2 is in referance to. Resaurant is not open for lunch?
Bar scene, what bar scene?
what's your point with that "select special features"?3/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
