We recently celebrated my boyfriend's birthday here with some other friends and it was all of our first time being there. Really no complaints I thought that it was really nice and the food was enjoyable for the most part. I particularly like the chicken Iridescence. It is on the 16th floor in the best way to enter is true... More

Fairly pricey for what they offered. I had a 25 day dry aged ribeye that was mid-to-fair. Grits and broccolini didn't impress me much either. Cheese plate was enjoyable, but the oysters are the smallest I have ever seen. Wait staff was great, and the view was worth it. I would find some place else to eat though.

The hostess was lacking. She asked if we wanted a seat by the window or a vip seat in the corner with a lovely view. The table was just that in the corner, not much of a view. Our wait staff was on point with everything and very attentive. The food was simply excellent.

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.
