Every time I’m in Chicago I come to Roka always amazing food and service.
Waitress wasn't as informed on the menu when asking questions. Some of the food was rather thrown together not finely chopped, not refined. Prices of suki were on the high side.
Food was very good. Everything was fresh and delicious! Our waiter was nice and somewhat attentive. One of our rolls didn’t co
Roka Akor always delivers. Ben is a great gm that knows how to take care of people and Aaron is a terrific waiter. We celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary and everything was over-the-top. Thank you Ben, Ben and Aaron for making this a memorable evening. Cheers
It’s too loud, especially sitting under the speakers. Impossible to make a conversation.
Celebrated my bday there and it was perfect. Can’t say enough about the service and food- all were the best!
Happy hour was great, love the ambiance, food melted in your mouth and very tasty, thankful for the experience during our visit to Chicago
The management and staff here never cease to amaze me! Elaine was our bartender and was very attentive and her cocktails are delicious! Also, the food is always fantastic so kudos to the Kitchen!
Omkase was delicious!
The service was excellent. The menu has something for everyone.
not worth the money and very different, maybe you have to get used to the style
Food and service was great. I would eat here again
Our go to special occasion dinner place. Food is always really good as well as service.
Awesome time, great service.
Terrible service and
Excellent overall dining experience, with really great food and quality service.
Lit! Server was nice and knew the menu and catered to items that we were looking for.
Best steak and scotch I've ever had! Not for rookies. King of the north.
Ambiance: Seated in "back" room. Nice location. Liveley but could carry on a conversation without too much trouble. Comfortable seating - enough room and good ergonomics.
Service: Started off excellent but tailed off toward end of meal. Our server was terrific but it appeared the place might have been short staffed because we became a bit forgotten during last 30 minutes.
Drinks: Everything fine except my pet peeve - an overpriced glass of wine (which is ok) combined with a "short" pour. Squeezing over five glasses out of a bottle is a bad idea.
I reserved for two decadent omakase for late valentines dinner with my boyfriend. We loved every course of the meal especially the japanese mushroom porridge and wagyu steak. Every food was amazing but it was a bit too salty for the taste of us two asians. The service was on point and the ambience was also great.
Each and every item ordered was impeccably presented and mirrored by the taste!
Food is great as always, the service was impeccable.
Everything we had was super fresh and we tried at least one-two items from each menu. The service was outstanding and the drinks were delicious. Definitely try their pork belly, all sashimi and sushi were melting in your mouth. Also great selection of Japanese whiskey. Definitely superior quality for the money. Will return again.
This was my second visit to Chicago and my second visit to Roka! Even better than I remembered! I love the busy vibe and the food is just sublime! Thank you for a wonderful gastronomic experience! I will be back!
Great place for quality sushi and sake tasting. I would highly recommend the grilled diver scallops. The taste stays with you even after leaving. Great job guys!
I cannot wait to come back, the food was amazing and the service was phenominal. I also love the location it’s was fun, safe and the meal was just incredible.
Very knowledgeable waiter giving great recommendations. Elegant and quick servings, superb mix of tastes. Third time here and will come back again!
My boyfriend and I had a great birthday celebration. Our waiter Guy was awesome, attentive but not overbearing. He mentioned our notes of a peanut allergy right away and assured us that we would be safe eating there. He even brought out a complimentary dessert for the birthday. Very good quality and portions for the prices. Will be back again soon!
Can’t complain, our new favorite place !!!
Fabulous restaurant, phenomenal food, excellent service!
Food is creative and plated beautifully. Sashimi is incredibly fresh. Service is always friendly and knowledgeable with great recommendations. Wine selection is fabulous as well!
Tremendous experience last night! Our waiter, Anthony, was outstanding. Engaging, extremely knowledgeable about the menu. Great atmosphere and would return again! Food was amazingly well done.
Great service! Food was delicious and wonderful recommendations from our waiter. The only negative was my sea bass was over cooked and dry and when I mentioned this to waiter, he immediately brought us a complimentary dessert that was out of this world delicious! Would definitely recommend!
The food there is always incredible, but our hostess really made the day special. She was amazing! Definitely hoping to have her around on our next visit.
Amazing Client dinner. Food and Service were impeccable!
Valentine’s Day celebration. Our server was excellent!
always top notch! If there is an issue its is addressed, resolved.
Great place Great staff! Cannot wait to go back!
Food was very good, the server ok. We got the booth I requested but perhaps because of being closes to the kitchen it smelled a bit.
