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

This restaurant is on the 16th floor of Motorcity Casino. The setting is super cute. The oysters were amazing. Hubby and I split a 24oz steak that was good. Loved the red sweet sangria

A little bit of pleasant surprise to find a decent restaurant within Casino Hotel. The restaurant had a nice ambiance. The seating was quite spacious, tastefully set and was quite pleasant. The food quality was excellent, although my experience with the servers was a bit of mix. Couple of (male) waiters were very unfit to the restaurant quality levels. Nonetheless... More

Iridescence continues to be the standard for fine dining in the city of Detroit. Yes, there are newer restaurants. Yes, there are the restaurants of the moment. But none have continued the standard of excellence set by Iridescence, as evinced by their streak of AAA 4 Diamond awards. We held a large group dinner (18 people) at Iridescence this past... More
