    Dining in the clouds above scenic Detorit skyline and river. Absolutely the finest in food and outstanding service. Staff insures you are the only one that is important no matter if you are are a twosome or a family or an office event. The food is present as if you were paging thru a food magazine.

    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.

The server made us feel like we were the only ones in the entire place. The food was delicious! Every single bit. The view was breathtaking and the live piano player was the perfect touch. 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".

    We had hair in our salad. I ordered a steak med/rare, came well and burnt in the half. Intrusive, and not well trained wait staff. The potatoes were hard an discusting. My wife's New York strip was unflavorful. Once served we went without service till the end. She wanted salt and pepper for her steak but no one was there to help us. When spoken to about the hair in the salad, it was a whisper. Cannot let others know, it was creepy. Overall, I could get better food and service from Golden Corral and save a bunch of money. Thanks for ruining our annervisary dinner. So disappointed. If I could do te dinner over, we'd go get a pizza from little ceasers down stairs. The view, rundown Detroit. Put up some blinds and turn up the lights.

    First time at Iridescence. Loved it. Polite cheerful servers, good food, beautiful room, great view. Slow pace is good for me, but the service was really slow. I thought maybe we had been forgotten. I must admit the slow service took away from the enjoyment. Really hate to complain, but waited 1/2 hour between salad and entrée. Otherwise, loved this place and will go again. Have eaten at all Detroit Casino restaurants and this tops them all.

    Our party of 4 dined here 5:30 on a Sunday for a Culinary Guild Dinner. Dinner was a 4 Course Prix Fix meal. Each staff member met us with a smile and made us feel special. Chelsea, our server was very good at describing the menu and its preparations. Matt , the Som had some great suggestions on the wine. There were excellent specials on the wines that evening that complemented the menu well. I would ask for them again. Each setting had a signed menu from the chefs that we could take home. Delicious bread basket. The meal was a wonderful value, deliciously prepared, thoughtfully created, and elegantly and artistically plated. The experience from start to finish was such a delicious treat. We will definitely return. Soon!

    My wife and I had a wonderful time last Saturday, starting with our very gratious host and with our wait staff, lead by Jamey. Jamey was so helpful and full of information on the choices we had in mind that it made it that much more enjoyable when each item made it to the table. The beef short rib was OUTSTANDING!!! My wife really enjoyed the fried green tomatoes as it reminded her of her like for country food. Our entrees of lamb and filet were delicious and filling, kudos to the chef. Cocktails set the mood for the evening, though not recommended if you're going to the movies afterward:0)

    The culinary staff at Iridescence is capable of great things. However, the menu doesn't necessarily reflect that. That's okay, as long as you're forewarned. If you have time, call ahead to arrange a tasting menu. This really allows the kitchen to shine.

    This dining experience exceed any and all other dining experiences. The flavors are so good, it’s difficult to describe, it left me mouthwatering and wanting more. This is by far is the best fine dining I’ve ever experienced. The staff was very attentive, polite and courteous. When my family and I arrived a top of the 16th floor at Iridescence, we were asked if we had a seating preference, to my surprise this is rare indeed if ever offered. You couldn’t help but be in awe of the beautiful breath taking surroundings both inside and out. Detroit, looks pretty good from the Iridescence Restaurant at MotorCity Casino Hotel! The exceptional attention to detail is what sets this restaurant apart from the rest.

    We dined at Iridescence on 08/09/2014. We both ordered drinks, had the ceasar salad for two and my wife ordered a small plate and I ordered the steak. The steak was orered medium.and was cut into pieces on the plate. I was not expecting that. The steak was dry and the sauce was overpowering and took away from the taste of the steak. In the future I would not order that. It should have beed explained to me when I ordered it.
