My husband Wayne had our anniversary diner while I was in our room sick with the flu ugh. He was with friends of ours and had a delightful experience. The chef came out and taught him how a real steak should be cooked and it was prepared to perfection. He especially loved our waitress, Jaime who was professional and well informed about everything from cocktails to dessert. Thanks to your entire staff, Bravo and we will be back very soon!

 (Grand Rapids)·Dined on January 7, 2018

My wife and I had dinner here for our 5th Anniversary and were not disappointed. First of all, in my reservation I had mentioned that we were here for our anniversary. When we arrived, the hostess wished us a happy anniversary before she seated us at an available table of our request. Once we were seated, we were again greeted by the server who took our drink orders with a "happy anniversary". Finally, when our dinner server approached our table, she wished us the same and asked how many years we were married and seemed very genuine. These kind of things made our night seem that much more special. As far as our meals go, my wife got Salmon and I the Filet; both of us were very happy with our meals. We also each had whipped potatoes and asparagus which were both excellent. Our server did a wonderful job explaining dishes for us and made recommendations when requested. At the end of our dinner the server asked if we'd like dessert, which we decline, but she insisted that dessert was on her/the house for our anniversary and brought us a melting chocolate ball cake. The plate came with "Happy 5th Anniversary" written on the plate in chocolate and the server worked her magic to open the chocolate ball to reveal the cake and raspberries that were inside. The view of Downtown Detroit was excellent as well.

Overall, our dinner was fantastic. We would absolutely go back and would recommend Iridescence to anyone looking for a special night with great food, fantastic service, and a nice view!

After a number of visits we have never been disappointed. The food is always incredible. My one bit of advice is to always trust your server. After our first time we were so impressed with our server Helios that we always request him. His suggestions are all spot on.

Waiter was distracting to our romantic evening. He kept dropping by frequently to check on us, or interrupt us, even when it was obvious that we were deep in conversation or eye gazing. He brought the check prematurely and then tried to pick it up before we were ready to go. All in all, even if the food was decent, not the place to go for romance.

Great view, excellent filet and service. My only complaint was if you try to make reservations directly with the restaurant the hostess said they were booked and in fact I was able to make reservations through open table with several time slots. The restaurant was not full, plenty of open seating.

 (Hawaii)·Dined on December 24, 2017

Restaurant is very nice and great setting however don't go when it's foggy or when the weather is bad. You won't be able to see anything.

Cons:
1. Mix up in reservation time which was frustrating. They called me at 5:30 to confirm an 8pm reservation when in fact the reservation was at 5:30. Their system should've known that and that seemed a bit unprofessional.
2. Service is only ok. Our waitress wasn't very attentive and barely refilled our drinks. Fellow that cleared the table would take food away when we clearly were not done. Very strange.
4. Ordered my filet medium rare but it came more on the meduim well side. Was very disappointed that they didn't cook it correctly at such an expensive restaurant.
3. Unable to see anything due to weather so make sure you book on a nice, clear day.

Pros:
1. Ambiance was beautiful
2. Their wine and dine special was nice and gave us an opportunity to try different things

Overall, enjoyed trying a new place.

We had a wonderful experience during our first trip to Iridescence. We had 5pm reservations (we were headed to a concert at Sound Board in the casino that started at 7:30pm). Parking at Motor City is easy, and getting up to the restaurant is smooth. It is very fancy, but doesn't feel stuffy. It was exclusive without being stuck up. The staff and crew are welcoming. We did the Wine & Dine - a great deal for a glass of wine and four-course dinner! One of our fav dining experiences in Michigan.

Can't say enough about our server Oretha and that was before she brought out two hand written in chocolate desert plates recognizing our 31st anniversary. The food was great and the value was there with the 55 dollar early seating. We each gave our server a big hug after the meal, she was that special. Thank you Iridescence.

Our third chef tasting with wine pairing here. By far the best... Good food and service was quite good. Our last two times, chef came and talked to us... Chef did not come out to talk.
There was no dessert wine either which is a bit odd.
One of the best chef tastings with wine pairing in Detroit!

Iridescence is a premier restaurant that never disappoints with respect to the experience. You will spend some money (about $200 is not uncommon for a couple including drinks). Helios, one of the waiters, is absolutely sensational. I highly recommend requesting his services if possible, since he is likely to enhance your experience ten-fold.
