I took my girlfriend here for her birthday and proposed to her. The staff was awesome in helping me make it a memorable experience. Our waiter Helios was awesome!!! I couldn’t have asked for a better server. I recommend him to everyone. Thanks again Iridescence and Helios for all your help. We will definitely be back soon. Thank you all!!!

As always Iridescence shines! It is one of our favorite restaurants ANYWHERE! Our latest experience was pre-REO Speedwagon concert at Motor City Sound Board. My wife decided to try the Iridescence Greek salad. She usually sticks with their outstanding Cesar but wanted to try something different this time. Unfortunately she was disappointed. The Greek salad was not good and we spoke to a few other patrons who had similar opinions. The good news though is that our waiter immediately replaced it with the Cesar salad. So our opinion of Iridescence remains high! We highly recommend it!

I was not impressed with the food, wait staff or the ambience. We were seated at a booth that was crowded and hard to get in and out of. The tablet menus were distracting. The wine list was lacking. I felt rushed by the woman who kept taking our plates away while we were still eating. The food was mediocre at best. I would not return.

This was my 2nd visit to Iridescence and it exceeded my expectations. We had a table for 4 facing the window -- beautiful sunset! The "early bird" wine and dine menu is an outstanding value. For $55, you get 4 courses and a glass of house wine. I ordered the Cab house wine, plus we ordered a bottle Faust Cab (one of our faves!).

To kick off the evening, I sampled a piece of bread with olive oil and balsamic. Then Chef sent out a complimentary shrimp appetizer that was delicious.

For dinner, I ordered the Frito Misto (yum!); squash Tom Yum soup (I missed the "Tom Yum" part in the menu. It wasn't what I was expecting, but it was a pleasant surprise); petite 6-oz filet cooked medium-rare to perfection on a bed of mashed potatoes and broiled asparagus (so good!); and finished with the flourless chocolate cake and a cappuccino. The cake was really good, but I was so stuffed that I couldn't finish it. I also drank 2 large bottles of sparkling water.

This was a fun night out with another couple. The atmosphere, the view, the food, and the service was outstanding. Great night all around!

the food and cocktails were delicious. we went ham and ordered the seafood tower, caeser salad, scallops, iberico pork chops, lamb, and more! everything had a nice balance of flavor

our waiter from albania was very nice and on point, didn’t miss anything extra that was requested and big bonus: was a great photographer! he hit all the angles

i requested a sugar free dessert for my husband on OpenTable and they were accommodating and brought an off menu sugar free peach pie that sure didn’t taste sugar free.

overall a great experience for our first time in Detroit and my husbands 55th birthday ❤️

We got to Chicago on many Sweetest Days, but not this year. So, where to go that's a bit special? Our usual candidates were, well, our usual candidates. At the last minutes I realized we'd never been to Iridescence, so showed my wife the menu (she's vegetarian) and she thought it sounded great (the vegetarian selections were somewhat unusual). We had a wonderful time. We overlooked downtown Detroit from a bit of a distance (rather than right downtown looking down on other buildings we were maybe a mile away looking at all of the buildings/the skyline at once). This place is great. We'll be back. Why 4 stars? My filet was a bit stringy at the end bites.

Aspects of the service misfired both nights I was there. The first night the server forgot about me, although this was adjusted for by a comped dessert, which was fabulous. The second night, I had to ask for bread, which had been forgotten, and the bus person tried to take my soup away when it was half-finished. I felt like she was rushing me. The food is creative and very fresh. The view is spectacular and it is a special place. It is a surprise to find such a quality place in a casino where people go around dressed in jeans and sweats. The "extra" of macaroons is a sweet treat.

My wife and I went there to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Each course was memorable. We actually liked it better than Wolf Gang Puck that we went to in Las Vegas. The Petite Man Ranch Prime Filet was the best that my wife and I have ever eaten. We both kept saying (wow this is so good). We loved the Pineapple Upside Down was delicious. We would eat there again. The service was top notch. Our server's name was Nichole and was on top of everything. Keeping our table clean and our drinks topped off. Kudos to all of the staff.

Excellent place to take someone for a special event. My family and I enjoyed celebrating my wife’s 50th birthday in style. Their appetizers, salads and deserts were excellent. The Kobe A5 is out of this world. This place may be pricey for some but you get what you pay for. Not an everyday restaurant but definitely a hidden gem for a special occasion.
