The restaurant was decorated beautifully and the windows and view were gorgeous! The restaurant is in the hotel of the Motor City Casino so you don’t need to walk through the casino to get there. We had the braised short ribs, steak for dinner with twice baked potato and mushrooms. Absolutely unbelievable. Fabulous meal, in every way. The twice baked potato was something to see, it was huge! Service was excellent!

Great location and ambiance. Most of the food was pretty good, but the entree that I ordered was not good at all. It was bland and without much seasoning and needed to be doused in the sauce to get any type of flavor from the dish (Scallops). Staff was most helpful and courteous, but price vs quality of food was not that great.

Chef’s five course was descent but not spectacular, clearly overpriced for the food portion. As an example, the lamb course was presented with one bone ; the red wine for this course was measured table side, clearly a significant departure from the four previous pours. If the restaurant did not have the view it would be fiscally challenged by now.

Iridescence overall was very good. Our server Oretha I think her name was was great. I especially enjoyed the oysters with tequila and grapefruit. My Caesar salad was a bit different. The croutons were mushy in the middle (intentionally). Not bad just not what I liked personally. I had the Sea Bass for my entree and it was just ok. I’ve had better Sea Bass elsewhere. If I go back I will try the steak next time.

Oretha our waitress was amazing as usual. All the staff really are great. Very professional and observant. Our table never had a dirty dish on it. Our drinks were always full. This place from the time you step off the elevator you feel very special. Every single one of your staff and chef is amazing.

I frequently dine at Iridescence and they never disappoint. You can't beat the view from this restaurant, so it's absolute requirement that you take your out of town guest to get a look at a re-developing Detroit! The service is excellent from the host all the way to the assistants who keep your water glass full of Fiji water! On this visit I hosted a three friends who've recently moved to New York. One of the diners in the group was vegetarian and she raved about the meal (the chef managed to make the prefix menu work for her). We arrived for early dinner because my guests were flying out of Detroit later that evening. We took advantage of the Early Wine and Dine Prefix Menu and every thing we had was excellent. The soup of the day was a chestnut mushroom that was incredible! I opted for the greek salad which was particularly tasty with the feta cheese whipped in dollaps on the plate with fresh greens and everything you'd expect in a greek salad. The filet was amazingly cooked perfect medium rare just as I ordered it. The vegetables were cooked just about al dente exactly the way I like them. The desert was a wonderful chocolate cake with raspberry sauce. We had a lovey time and many thanks to Ken and all the staff for making the evening extra special! If your visiting Detroit, don't miss this opportunity to have a great meal with an excellent view of Detroit!

Iridescence was once one of my favorite restaurants as their food and service were excellent. However when I went this weekend the server and a staff member named Ken seemed irritated by my special dietary requirements. Ken actually came to my table to scold me for not calling the chef two weeks ahead of time to inform the kitchen of my dietary needs. His tone was condescending and terse, and not once did he apologize for not being able to meet my dietary needs. I did not know there was a certain time frame or person to call (I placed my dietary requirements in the email with my reservation) or I would have happily done so. I believe that more than the limited food selection, I was let down by the terse manner in which Ken interacted with me. It was a special occasion and my guests and I were in a great mood only to be chastised and patronized by Iridescence staff. Instead of “I’m sorry for any inconvenience ma’am we do not have dairy free options” I was met with “you have special dietary requirements? Well you should have called our chef...”. I am very let down by my experience.

Everything about our experience was Excellent. We had great service, our server was knowledgeable about the menu items, drinks, desserts. The food was impeccable, I had the sea bass, my husband the filet. My husband loved the twice baked potato, that was his favorite meal item. The beet salad was delicious and I loved the addition of the labbeneh to it. Overall this was an exceptional fine dining experience.

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.
