Appetizers were great. Main course was meh. Dessert was amazing. This was our first time at Iridescence, and we left kind of feeling flat. Everything was good; but for the price and reputation we were expecting something much better. For example, my lamb chops were simply spiced with salt and pepper and grilled. No sauce, no sides, no anything. Just a very simple lamb chop. Which was tasty; but for $45 I should at least get a sauce on them. My wife had the lamb shank, and it was so hot (heat not spice) that she coudl barely eat it.

Food wasn’t anything special, steak was cooked perfectly but had zero flavor. Fish was cooked perfectly as well but once again maybe 2 on flavor. Best thing we had was the $6 side of whipped mashed potatoes. Not worth the money spent

Iridescence was amazing. I have never been to a restaurant with better service. Helios, Joshua, and Cornelius were incredible. My wife and I felt like the center of their attention. Food was superb and although this is a more expensive restaurant, I felt the value was great. The decor and the view of downtown Detroit from 16 floors up were unforgettable. Thank you Iridescence for an outstanding and memorable anniversary dinner.

Iridescence is one of the best places to eat in Detroit. I honestly think the $175 per person on New Years Eve was a little excessive, but it included an open bar and I go my moneys worth. The food and service was outstanding as usual, and I would recommend this place to anyone looking to impress a date or a customer.

We had so much fun celebrating my birthday here. This is our fourth time and it impresses every time we are there. To top it off we’ve found a favorite server (Sarah, she’s Scottish and amazing) and she always makes our evenings tons of fun. We’ve done the chefs tasting previously, so this time we stuck to some of our favorites, scallops, ahi tuna salad, asparagus, CAB filet, mushrooms and king crab. For dessert they brought me a melting flourless chocolate cake with raspberries that was to die for. My absolute favorite part of the night. It’s expensive but worth it for a special occasion.

Went to celebrate a friends 50th birthday before going to the Detroit Opera House. Reservation was for 5:00, our server asked if we had any time constraints and we let her know we would like to be done by 6:30. Service was perfect and we all enjoyed the Wine and Dine special menu and of course the view! Everything was perfect for our special occasion. Thank you!

It was refreshing and clean. Very knowledgeable waitstaff. Too scared to try the blind course meal as their a few things we don’t like. Didn’t want to be a pain so went with the filet and it was amazing.

We dined for Christmas.

She had:

Shrimp cocktail
Caesar Salad
Roast Chicken
Whipped Potatoes
Pineapple Upside down cake


He had:

Prawn Cocktail
Kobe A5 Beef
Whipped Potatoes
Rustic Apple Pie

What can I say? Everything was perfect and as it should be. It is exactly what you would expect from a premium dining experience, from the arrival and ordering to the pacing of the meal - and of course the food preparation was exceptional.

The stars of the evening were the Kobe Beef and Pineapple Upside down cake, but any of the other dishes would have no problem being the best thing on most places menu.

Excellent experience, thank you everyone at Iridescence.

I was really looking forward to spending the evening here for dinner. I made the reservations a few weeks in advance and had looked over the menu multiple times before arriving. When we got there they sat us at the table by the window, which we requested, which was nice. Great view of the city. My issue was with the service and quality of food. We ordered scallops for our starter which was outstanding! After that we had the Ribcap and Branzino. The cap was ice cold and the branzino was over cooked. The branzino was pilled high with onions and tomatoes which once the dish was at an edible temperature made the fish soggy. The potatoes were underdone and hard to chew. The service staff came to the table an obnoxious amount of times concerned with our water and bread still being at the table but never once checked on us after our dinner arrived. Overall it was a very disappointing meal and I doubt I’ll return.

We went here for my boyfriend’s birthday, the food was amazing! Fayez was an amazing server. The short ribs were phenomenal. My boyfriend ordered a ribeye and loved it. I had the New York strip and it was delicious. They even threw in a free birthday dessert! The experience was awesome!
