It was pricey.. but you know what you're going for when you dine at a place like this.. my reservation was at 7:30pm on Friday, March 22nd.. I proposed to my now fiance right after dinner at our window table.. recieved an ovation from the whole dining room.. was a very good experience.. spent $227 on dinner which is more than I have ever spent in my life lol.. but you are paying for a fine dining experience.. food was amazing.. and it was a once in a lifetime experience we will always remember considering we are now engaged..

This was our first time dinning here. We were celebrating our 11yr anniversary. Had an 8pm reservation. Was seated at 8:15 (waited for a table with a view) the view and food was amazing! Same can not be said for our service. For such as place as Iridescence is you'd expect top notch service. Our waitresses name was Sarah. As sweet and pleasant as she was, we really didnt see much of her. Pretty sure she forgot about us several times throughout our dinning. My husband was never asked if he'd like another drink and I had to flag her down twice. I had asked the bus boy (because our server was no where to be found) if I could get some ice, which I never did receive. The poor service left a bad taste in our mouths, Which was very unpleasant considering the food was so amazing. Not sure will be back any time soon..

My latest experience at Iridescence was a bit of a letdown. I don’t know what happened to the food, but it was not very good. I used to savor every bite of steak, but this time, I might as well have been at Outback Steakhouse. Disappointed, don’t know if I’ll go back unless they change their cook.

The food was not good! Everything on the menu was expensive and not worth what we paid for, they don’t understand the concept of 4 course meal because what they gave me was my app my salad and then my dinner! The soup was cold and they were basically feeding birds.

We dined here around 5 years ago and the food and service was Great! This visit wasn't so good. The staff was Great from the moment we arrived. Waitress was Great! There were plenty of selections from the bread but only 1 was decent and that was if I put alot of butter on it. The lobster tail appetizer wasn't very flavorful. Then we waited for out steaks...and waited...and waited. My wife had the filet and I the New York Strip. My wife asked for medium well but it was way over cooked. I asked for medium and it was far from it. They both had a burnt layer on the outside. There is a difference between being seared and burnt. Once we got part that the steak in itself wasn't very flavorful either. I was going to send them back but we were there for over 3 hours so by that time I was finished. Our first visit was worth every cent but this visit was Not worth the $300.

We went at 10pm on a saturday, that might have been the issue, but the main dish was so bad we had to send it back. The appetizer was amazing, i was very excited to get the surf and turf, but was un able to eat it as it was so salty. It was like the 2 courses were made in 2 different kitchens, the apps were plated beautifully and tasted fresh, the main dish was plated sloppily and just poorly made.

Enjoyed our visit to the restaurant, service was/is top notch, beginning with the maître de who offered seating choices and accommodated our preference. Our server was excellent, very attentive and knowledgeable, she enhanced our experience immensely. Food was excellent, perfectly prepared, presentation was beautiful. We had filets, shrimp cocktail, oyster appetizer, duck soup, twice baked potato, and desserts. We also had cocktails, and the "pour" was generous judging from the taste. Restaurant décor is very well appointed, very relaxing.

We ordered the cheese tray for our first course and the cheese was dried out. It was very hard. I had the beef spare ribs which was tasty. The service was good and the ambience was great. I will return for another visit but will not order the cheese tray.

Iridescence always delivers a great dining experience. The location and view from the 16th floor of the Motor City Casino Hotel overlooking the Detroit River and the Detroit and Windsor skyline is unbeatable in Detroit. While the food is usually outstanding, it's the service that really makes it for us. We dine here frequently enough that we're always recognized and the wait staff reflects that in the very personal service we receive. They have a new Head Chef, Patrick, who came out and introduced himself after I had mentioned to our server, Chelsea, (who is one of our favorites) that the soup needed salt. Chef Patrick came out and personally agreed and apologized. He told us to ask for him on our next visit and he'll do something special for us. Now that is SERVICE!
Other notable servers are Helios and Fayez.

Delicioe! The atmosphere was perfect and they did a great job with service. My server, Oretha, was attentive and made sure everything was done to our specifications. I had the short rib appetizer as my entree and it just melted in my mouth. My love had the lamb chops and she could not stop raving about how great they were. Thank you Iridescence for helping make my love's birthday special and thank you Oretha for superb service.

For a highly-rated, expensive restaurant, I was very pleased with the level of service, but disappointed in the quality of the food. I ordered the duck, and it was flavorful, but at almost $50, I expected the fat to be fully rendered. It was not. My husband ordered the lamb and it was cooked well, but not very flavorful and with no salt on the table, there was no remedy readily available.

The Paloma (signature cocktail) that I ordered was delicious and the second one matched the first. My husband ordered a Margarita, and the first one he had was to his liking, but the second was not the same at all. Found out that a different bar tender had made the second one. With a basic drink such as a margarita, you would think there would be consistency--especially at $12 per. Our server was excellent and remedied the margarita situation, so 5 stars for Bao!
