My wife and I have been to Iridescence several times over the past year, and it is hands-down our favorite spot in the city. We went there for our 20th wedding anniversary most recently and also for my wife's birthday last year, and each time everything was perfect. The servers are especially outstanding and obviously well-trained. They help to make the occasion speciaL. The view of Detroit from the window is beautiful and the food is phenomenal. Great desserts!

My compliments to our waiter and chef. I've eaten at some of the world's top steakhouses and Iridescence prepared my steak "Pittsburgh style" better than any other restaurant I've been to. The steak was perfectly presented with a taste only secondary to Moishes in Montreal. The lobster baguette appetizer is a must as is a quick libation at the bar while you wait for your table to be ready. Beautiful contemporary interior with vast window views of the metro Detroit and Windsor area. I highly encourage anyone who is looking for a superb dinner to plan a trip here.

Fantastic food! All of us had some sort of seafood dish and they were all amazing! Cocktails were great, wine list was excellent and the service was fabulous. I just wish the people bringing the water and clearing the tables were as professional and polished as the servers. A few of them poured water like they were working in a bar. Other than that, our guests were certainly impressed.

Got on dusk. The view of the city while the sun goes down is amazing!

I decided to make reservations to come here to celebrate my sister's birthday. We wanted to try the early seating four course meal. I must say that I was truly amazed by the excellent service, wonderful ambiance, and delcious food. The presentation was extremely well done. The wait staff was very attentive to detail, but not intrusive. The view was great ( we were seated by the window), and the staff help us identify some buildings we were unfamiliar with. Overall, we all agreed that we will return to celebrate , whether we have an occasion or not.

My husband brought me to dine for my Birthday, being in this industry for 44 years I was quite excited to have the opportunity once he told me where we were going. We checked in for a 8:00 reservation, the Hostess and Host were very pleasant and kind, they said it would be about 10 minutes for our table, we had no worries with that and decided to enjoy a cocktail from the bar which was also a very pleasant experience. After about 10 minutes we were seated at a nice table by the window per my husbands request. We had the pleasure of having Sarah take care of us, she was not only professional, but very knowledgeable about the menu. We started with a glass of Sancerre, and my husband had the Scallop appetizer, which he had ask for them to be a little more well, and I had the Los
bster on Brioche which was a little overdressed. We then proceeded to our entrees, which were not awful just a little underwhelmed, he had the N.Y. and I the Bronzino, our greastest dissappointment was ordering a bottle of wine $130 no problem, but alot of heat and we did not like it, wanting to try something different Sarah sent the Host/Sommelier over who we couldnt help but feel he was a bit condensending, and said if we didnt like it he would drink it later?? We, then frustrated just ordered a bottle of Plumpjack, which we have had before but not in our budget for the evening, we spent $558 and were disappointed. Sarah is an asset to you and tried to make things right, on behalf of my husband and I we are very sorry to have to write this experience to you.

Had a great time celebrating our anniversary. Our waitress Sarah was great and was on point with her recommendations. Only think I didn’t appreciate was something that considered rude, the manager appeared to check on all the tables in our vicinity and ask how the meal was. He skipped our table after walking past it multiple times, I just hope it was a mistake and not purposely done. Other than that it was a fantastic evening.

The service was exceptional and the staff was very friendly. The food was good. Not bad, but certainly did not live up to the hype. The only dish that was hot was the lobster mac and cheese and the steak was outstanding. Our short rib appetizer was lukewarm. The risotto for the African Prawns was gummy, and again, not hot. Overall the food lacked in salt. The presentation was nice. We didn't complain, as the food was okay but we had higher expectations.

They did surprise us with a complimentary dessert to celebrate our anniversary. The dessert was delicious and the gesture was very kind and much appreciated.

The experience at Iridescence was outstanding! I enjoyed every bit of the each course. We had the seafood tower. The crab was flavorful, fresh and tender as were the shrimp and lobster. We opted out of the oysters just because my hubby and me can pass all of the time on them.
The lobster mac and cheese was stupid good!!!! I can't get that taste out of my mind, it was so rich, cheesy and I'm so curious as to what cheeses were used to make it! Just lovely, one of my top 3 meals of all times!

I was very excited to visit, but left disappointed. 1st our server was very knowledgeable, Impressive actually. But little issues throughout the evening left a not so good impression. As far as food, we made our own tasting menu so we could try many offerings. The only dish that was well put together was the tuna appetizer, but for $29 you only get 2 ounces, or 4 tiny pieces. For most fine dining restaurants, this one included, an amuse bouche is given at the start of the meal, directly after you place your order. We did not receive ours until after our third course, after asking twice. For our main course we ordered the $125 A5 Kobe, wild mushrooms and whipped potatoes, each of which were not seasoned, not even with salt or pepper. The potatoes looked less whipped and more like potato chowder, and were starchy and runny. We asked our server about this, and she simply dismissed our complaint. Each course look about 30 minutes, and they were not particularly busy. I had every intention of ordering dessert and after dinner drinks, but was so put off by the meal and overall treatment that we ended the meal early.

I am getting more and more disappointed every time. The steak had zero flavor. The half mushy tomato from the chief was gross. The croutons in the Caesar salad was cold in the center. If it was not for free casino comps I would’ve stopped going here long time ago.
