On my recent trip to Michigan I was invited by MotorCity Casino Hotel to a blogger event to dine in their restaurant Iridescence. With an unparalleled view of Detroit and a 5 star dining experience, you’ll be wondering why you never ate here before. Put it on your list of paces to dine and try something you have never had before, you won’t regret it.
When my brother and I arrived, we were taken into a room where wine bottles rolled along the enclosed glass and we sipped on champagne and ate delicious meats and cheese from a charcuterie board.
We had a four course meal while dining at Iridescence and were completely blown away by how perfect everything was – from the service, timely delivery of food, presentation, and the food itself was incredible.
We wanted to try something we had never had before so we got the Kobe beef sliders and Osetra Caviar. The sliders were grilled to perfection remaining juicy and melt-in-your-mouth delicious. The caviar was also delicious – it came with smoked salmon, brioche, crème fraîche, and onions. We tried it several ways and it was good each way – highly recommend both of these appetizers!
We opted to try toe house salad since it is special to the restaurant. Field greens, red onions, candied pecans, michigan dried cherries, and vanilla bean chardonnay vinaigrette make up this masterpiece. The dressing was so light and complimented all the other items in the salad.
We both ordered the same thing for our dinner. Signature Cut “Tomahawk Style” Ribeye – 32 ounces of American wagyu beef. In retrospect, we should have shared this dish – it was more than enough for two people. Wagyu beef in my opinion is the best beef I have ever had – if you have the option to get this cut of meat – definitely go for it. Your knife will slide through it like butter.

How did we even make it this far? We ended up taking a lot of food back with us because we wanted to try the dessert! I for one was so happy they have the melting chocolate sphere on their menu. Its simply brilliant how they pack a dessert inside this chocolate dome and then melt it right in front of you where you can eat it. We shared desserts so we also tried the pineapple upside down cake. If you have a sweet tooth – look no further. Head to Detroit now and order these two items. We weren’t even hungry at this point but we ate them because they were so good.
The food was fantastic! I would dine here on every trip to Detroit if I could.
