We received a complimentary meal at Iridescence Restaurant in order to facilitate our review. All thoughts and opinions are our own.
Iridescence Restaurant at the MotorCity Casino
During our stay at the MotorCity Casino Hotel, we had the chance to enjoy a fabulous dinner at the Iridescence Restaurant. Iridescence is located on the top of the floor of the MotorCity Casino Hotel and is the only restaurant in Detroit to have a AAA 4-diamond rating. We tend to do family dining so we were excited for a nice adults dinner and some time alone. We could not have picked a better location to celebrate the 14th anniversary of when we met. The interior was stunning and the view from up high was breathtaking.
The menu at Iridescence is full of mouth-watering selections and if you are brave you can even do a seven course tasting. Everyone at the table must agree for this option and I wasn’t feeling adventurous so we opted to order off the main menu. Before we could even order they brought a wonderful, non-traditional bread basket to the table. This went perfectly with our appetizers.
The chef and his staff wanted to make sure that we got to experience all that the Iridescence Restaurant has to offer its patrons and sent out a few extra dishes for us try.
To prepare our pallets for the main course we were given a cleansing bite of sorbet.
With so many tantalizing items on the menu,it was hard to settle on a main course but we finally did. I ordered the Colorado Lamb Chops and my husband chose the Prime New York Strip Steak. We were blown out of the water by the fullness of flavor, perfect texture and perfection to which each dish was cooked. There are not enough words to fully describe how amazing it tasted.
There was barely any room for dessert when we were finished but I am a sucker for a delicious Cre‘me Brule‘e. My husband treated himself to a cappucino.
Our entire dining experience was two hours long and we enjoyed every minute of it. It was such a relaxing night and the entire staff was wonderful and made sure that everything was perfect. I even watched how they acted with others who were dining and saw the same level of service given to other diners. I could not find anything wrong with our visit, and that is saying something because normally I have one complaint at least when eating out.
Even though Iridescence Restaurant specializes in fine dining it is a relaxed atmosphere because it is frequented by many casino goers. We were dressed in business casual and this fit in perfectly fine with what others were wearing. I would take my daughter (who is 12) to Iridescence as she enjoys finer foods as much as we do. Their menu is available online if you are planning to visit with kids and want to make sure there is something they will eat. However, it is also a great spot to enjoy an adult’s night out.
