We have been here several times now, and have always had a great meal. Last time we had Chateaubriand, and it was delicious. Go before dark so you can enjoy the views - also nice at dusk when the lights come on. Plan on at least 1 1/2 hr to fully enjoy the experience.

This place has a great menu. Food is awesome, not too many restaurants opening like this one. Has been open for a while, but has a most dressey feeling, you don't see that much now. Great place for a special occasion, I would diffidently recommend.

Celebrated my 26th anniversary with my wife. The view was spectacular even though they sat us at the last table in the back near storage. We couldn't see much of the restaurant from this area. The food was underwhelming to say the least...long wait and food came out lukewarm...we both ordered steak, asparagus and mushrooms. Only the asparagus was hot.... More

No question this is a very good restaurant. The food offerings are innovative and have enough variety to meet a cross-section of dining tastes. The service was attentive yet relaxed and cordial. And the view is awesome, with views of the City, the Detroit River covering the horizon and the lights of the Ambassador Bridge twinkling their way to Canada.... More

Iridescence is such a lovely restaurant with plenty of space between tables, comfortable seating, and a great view. The food is very good; however, some of the portions (especially soup) were ridiculously small. Our table was presented with appetizers which I could not eat due to allergies. The waiter said he would have something special made for me. "Special" turned... More

My husband and I visited this restaurant for our 11th anniversary. Really wanted to like; however, will not return. Total cost for 2, $198.00. So not worth the price. Ambience was great, staff was great, food was ugh! I had the Dover Sole was off tasting and made made my throat tingle (not pleasantly), my husband, the $70 lobster, which... More

This was my first trip to Iridescence and I have to say I was extremely impressed! From the moment we arrived we were warmly welcomed and given a fantastic table that overlooked the Detroit and Windsor skylines. Our waiter was Moisi and he was a consummate professional who delivered the finest service I have ever experienced. Just to have the... More

In my opinion this restaurant has THE best combination of food quality and atmosphere in the area. The food is outstanding. Are there places with better food? Perhaps. But combine the food with the awesome ambience here and the view over downtown Detroit and it can't be beat. I'm not a fan of the casino but I come here often... More

Iridescence is an amazing up scale restaurant located at the top of the Motor City Casino in Detroit.The service is very good and the food is superb! We had the chateaubriand and it was wonderful. Most items are a-la-carte. The restaurant offers amazing views of the Detroit skyline. If you are looking for a special night out and cost is... More
