Iridescence has nice views, fantastic service and the food was about par. I think it is a bit over priced for what you get. Slightly annoyed that you cannot reserve a window view, that is first come first serve. I ordered the scallops and they were ok. I do have to say we had Helio as a waiter and he was exceptional in the service we received.

You can read my review on TripAdvisor. The food was excellent, but we were very hurried. Then a table was sat across from us and everyone who worked there obviously knew the people at that table. It was loud, obnoxious, and our server immediately almost gave up on us while she fawned over that table.

Our 11th Anniversary was made even better by this dinner. An amazing view, amazing ambiance, outstanding Chef, tight management, and great service. It all comes together here. Bao is top 5 servers of all time, any restaurant in any city. This was the perfect meal. We had a reservation at another place, but changed our minds last minute. Glad we did.

Great view, great service getting to the location and being seated. Very good on that part. Service at the table was not comfortable. Kept interrupting at inopportune moments and was uncomfortably mannered with my date.

The window seating, friendly immediate service, great food suggestions, and finally an excellent meal.
Being able to relax, talk, take pictures, and enjoy your meal with no rush made the meal a nice celebration of our anniversary.
The lovely personalized dessert topped off our experience.
Thank you!

This restaurant has been highly rated by many. The steaks were very good, I must admit, but some of the other food items were not particularly noteworthy. The ambiance and view were nice. If I went again I would stick to bourbon (generous pours!), oysters, steak with a side of duck fat fries. This restaurant is expensive, not particularly a good value.

The food is varied and wonderful. They have three tiers of tables, one at the window, one set back and elevated - both with nice views. We were at the third tier, between the other two with no view at all. Consider tipping to assure a table with a view if that is important to you.
We were there for the food and didn’t really care about the view and the food did not disappoint. The chef featured an octopus appetizer that was quite unique. The service was outstanding and the wine list extensive.
Be ready to pay, but you get what you pay for, so enjoy.

Our experience was awful. It started before we even got to the restaurant, we asked the employee at the bottom of the elevators if we needed a pass card to get to the restaurant he looked us up and down and told us there was a dress code and he didn’t think we would get in. This was very off putting because I was in a dress and hells and my husband was in slacks and a dress shirt. We then get to the restaurant and are seated. Our waiter comes up and from the moment we sat we felt like we were being rushed, he was extremely rude and asked my husband if he wasn’t having a good time before he could even answer the waiter just walked away. We were so upset by the entire experience. We were trying to go there to celebrate our anniversary and it was the exact opposite of the night we had envisioned. We felt that the way we were treated was completely unacceptable.
