ROKA AKOR - Scottsdale
Absolutely Incredible!My husband and I came here for our 1st wedding anniversary. We thoroughly enjoyed the meal and can't wait to go back again. The food is incredible and the service was outstanding.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat FoodThe food was outstanding. The service was top notch. I recommend this restaurant to everyone.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMGood...but not outstandingThe food at Roka Akor is very expensive. My husband and I went during Happy Hour, and I'm so glad we did! We were able to get much more food for a reasonable price (considering that it is a very high end restaurant). In all honesty, though, I was kind of disappointed. We had heard SO many amazing reviews, which made me expect amazing food. I think I may have gotten the, "I gotta eat at Roka Akor" out of my system. Out of the 6 Happy Hour dishes that my husband and I got, we liked 5. That's pretty good, but considering the hype and high prices (even for happy hour - they're small portions!), I'd choose elsewhere for food I know I'd like. Though, we did enjoy our meal and the food was good.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMWe took friends back for dinnerWe took friends back for dinner after they couldn't believe how delicious their meals were last year. At that time they raved about the impeccable service, the amazing presentation and superb quality of food. Roka Akor was beyond any New York City restaurant they've been to as residents there. The reaction from them and us was another superb experience and if a restaurant warrants more than five stars, we would give it a perfect ten!6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing food/drink & great ambianceThis is one special place. We had some sushi for appetizers and then the lamb chops & black cod for dinner and both were AMAZING. The Hani Pru and Blood Orange Margarita were stunning as well (love their ICE!). Our server (Ryan) was incredibly knowledgeable as well as friendly. The best news is that there are TWO Roka Akor's in Chicago where I live! Do yourself a favor and check this place out.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMOmakase was outstanding!!!Omakase was outstanding!!! Excellent dinner, as good or better than Morimoto or Nobu...6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMThe wait staff made our experienceThe wait staff made our experience very special. Great choices were recommended and the food arrived promptly and beautifully presented. When a dish was going to take time to prepare the waitress informed us and it was worth the wait. Everything we ordered was delicious. Although the noise level made it difficult to converse across the table we got used to it so I would certainly return to try more items on the large menu.6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Restaurant in ScottsdaleAlways come here and always love it.

Food Service everything amazing like always..5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat but at a great + priceEverything was amazing and the attention to detail shown by fresh ground salt and wasabi was everywhere. Uni is more often a disaster than a gem and being this far from the coast we feared the former but got the latter. The challenge is that we have some amazing Japonese restaurants at home and have dined at countless top shelf one throughout the world. On face value an amazing experience but when you factor in price I can't say the value is there.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMTop notch dining!I came in for Mother's Day dinner to treat myself. Started with Laurent Perrier. Ahhhh....
The quality of food and service in the restaurant is one of the best I have had across the country. Top notch from the beverage list and through the entire menu. Make sure to ask for items available not on the menu. Service was incredible.
Thank you for a great Mother's Day as I was dining alone and felt spoiled from beginning to end.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMSome of the group did theSome of the group did the seasonal chef selection others ordered entrees. We were warned about the timing since not everyone was doing the tasting menu. It worked out perfectly fine. The courses flowed very well and we were all able to try a lot of different things. We also got several appetizers that were good especially the pork belly, calamari and scallops. It was very good food and our waitress was extremely helpful. The infused shochu (mango chilie) was delicious. It was my father's birthday so I had a cake delivered to the restaurant before they opened. They were extremely helpful in getting that set up and brought the cake out with candles (which I had forgotten to even ask about).5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat dining experience.

Would recommend to try a little bit many items.
Great sake selection.
The only reason I didn't rate overall outstanding was because the menu had some items that I priginally wanted to order, but were out of.
Would definitely recommend and return.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was outstanding.The food was outstanding. We enjoyed watching the sushi chefs creating works of art out of sashimi.

Walking in the door between the fire pots is very cool. The tables are spaced far apart which is great. I wish more restaurants would do that. The Waygu beef and kimchee dumplings were great. For an entree, you cannot do better than the Japanese A5 Kobe beef. It is the best there is and the kitchen executed it perfectly. The sweet potato with ginger teriyaki was very good. I am not a sushi fan, so I cannot comment on that, but everything I had was worth a repeat visit.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMOur favorite restaurant inOur favorite restaurant in Scottsdale.

Dined on Shigoku oysters with yuzu and Umi masu toro mi (ocean trout belly)with osetra caviar. I was told I got one of the last bites for a while. Amazing. A new menu item of local beet salad with jalapeno miso vinaigrette was so refreshing and wonderful. Not the standard you see on every menu in town. One of the most interesting dishes I had was the Rabbit Tenderloin with pickled plum, shiso and aka miso. So much flavor and innovation. Service was outstanding as always.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMOur party of 4 enjoyed theOur party of 4 enjoyed the Roka Akor tremendously and they spent hundreds of dollars very happily.
