Food was excellent and service was great. Our waitress's personality was a little strange, but everyone else very nice and normal. We shared the amazing chocolate dessert and it was wonderful, but very rich.

Our server was fantastic. She treated us like we were the only table in there, and the chef even came out to personally answer a question we had about one of the appetizers we were eating (it was so good, we had to ask about where it was from:). A great experience and worth the added cost!

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.

Our server Bao was very knowledgeable of menu items, very helpful in explaining the menu, attentive but not overzealous, very talented in using her skills to present a unique plate on which to serve a birthday dessert. The dining experience was very enjoyable. Our four course meals were delicious. Glad we decided to try Iridescence for this birthday celebration!

We use iridescent to celebrate our wedding anniversary and they met our standards and then some compared to other upscale restaurants very professional and attentive from the time you walked in the door until the time you left ordered the four-course meal which included a glass of wine very affordable

This restaurant is on the 16th floor of the Motor City Hotel and Casino. Park in the Hotel parking garage for free. The food was excellent...ultra gourmet...complete with gold leaf trimmings on the desserts. We had a package deal ($55 per person/3 Courses), we had a show at the Masonic Temple afterwards. We told the host this info and he was great with getting our dinner served in ample time for the show...takes about an hour to eat here, so do not come if you are in a hurry. Views from the window seats are awesome...you can clearly see the Ambassador Bridge from Canada and the Caesars Palace Casino in Windsor, Canada. Wonderful place for romantic dinner...not good for young children. Digital menus show you how the food will look when it arrives at your table....this was definitely appreciated!

This place is GREAT, whenever I know we are going to be in Detroit, I make reservations for us to eat here. We have NEVER had a bad meal or gotten bad service. I WISH they had one in the Columbus, Ohio area, then I would eat there more than 3 to 4 times a year we eat there now.

The food was amazing. Participated in the Thanksgiving pre-set menu and was not disappointed. The Four-Course meal was better then advertised. I was with 3 other friends and it was out first time at the Motor City Casino and the dining experience we had was 5 stars. The food, the service and the atmosphere were all wonderful.

The shrimp was supposed to be jumbo shrimp. Looked and tasted exactly like the bag of shrimp I have in my freezer at home. Got 3 of them with some cocktail sauce. Not worth $15 that’s for sure.

Steak was good. Lobster tails were average. Bread was hard and old.

Waiter was nice.

All and all a nice experience but not a “I have to go back ASAP kinda place.”

In short , been there got the tee shirt but not worth a return trip.

The food was immaculate and our host was very thoughtful(Orethea). It was our 7th year anniversary and they brought out a plate written in chocolate --very considerate. It was my wife and I as well as our 2friends first time there. We're already planning our next visit. My wife was extremely happy along with the rest of us. Thanks again for a wonderful experience.

We have eaten at Iridescence twice and both times the food, service, and ambiance were wonderful.

Her artistic chocolate plate presentation celebrating our 50th wedding anniversary was a perfect end to a great dining experience..
