The best food. My favorite restaurant. I have never been disappointed.
We had a group of 5 so we shared several dishes, which was great because we got to try several sides (say yes to the brussel sprouts and the spinach!) and each had our own main course. Everything was flavorful, beautifully presented and our waiter was fabulous!
The food was fantastic. The chef picked amazing fish for the sushi portion. The creamy wasabi sauce was to die for.
Our party ordered the “standard” tasting menu. The “journey” through the menu was a great way to experience the many tastes available. Our server was knowledgeable and attentive without hovering. Great ambiance with great food made for an enjoyable evening. My only “less then exceptional” comment is the vibrant background noise level.
Roka never disappoints! Picking it for my Fiancé’s birthday, I must admit my expectations were almost unrealistically high but Roka and their staff went above and beyond. The Management team made sure to personally greet us at the door and check in on us through out the night. Our server, Gary, was extremely attentive and personable, and the food was phenomenal. Hats off to the Steve for the fantastic beverage advice, and Ben and Billy for the hospitality.
the best sushi! We always go there when in Chicago!
Great all around
I sat at the counter overlooking the Sushi chefs. What an asweome experience! I ordered the 5 course tasting menu and was not disappointed...a variety of proteins and vegetables. The service was stellar! I would definitely return.
Octopus with Meyer lemon and squid ink aioli was hands down one of the best dishes I've ever eaten. Michelin star worthy!
From the moment we walked in the door customer service begin and was amazing all the way thru. meal was great and my favorite EEL was executed to perfection.
Manager Billy was always careful to make sure all his server were on top of the situation. he was also very knowledgeable about the wines.
Thank you all we will be back
Always a wonderful place to go and one not to be missed
This is one of my favorite places to go with Friends and Clients. Outstanding!
We celebrated a big weekend in Chicago. It was a perfect Saturday night “1-year” anniversary kinda place!
Will definitely return.
Was completely excited to see there was a Roka in Chicago! Food was great, would def go again!
We visited for our anniversary and loved it. Our server Anthony was fantastic. We did the decadent tasting menu and enjoyed every course they served us. It’s very loud which was our only complaint but even that didn’t take away from the evening.
Amazing server. Gary was so helpful and amazing we loved him!
Awesome, so good, great music, great service
Great ambience. Service was decent. Food was nice but not great. All our dishes were rushed out all together and then we didn’t see our waiter again for a half hour. It wasn’t a bad experience but it was just ok.
The food came out way too fast. If I am going to a "nice dinner," I do not expect to be rushed.
Awesome time. Gary our server did a great job. Recommendations we so good.
We had an amazing time! Our server was very knowledgeable about the food and was extremely helpful!!
Just a visitor of the city, and decided on Roka Akor because it has two of my favorite things - sashimi and steak. Reservation was at 6pm for 2 on a Friday night. We were early, so we had a drink at the bar. It was still pretty empty when we sat down for dinner, but every table was full and bar packed by the time we left. We splurged and did the decadent omakase with a wagyu tasting add-on. Everything that came out had a good balance of flavors and cooked well. I appreciated minimal ingredients for each dish, which allowed the natural flavors to shine. Our server was very attentive and took time to ask us what we liked so that the omakase matched our preferences. It cost over $200 per person (including alcoholic drinks) but well worth the price. Ambiance was dim lighting and patrons were wearing anything from business to casual. The only thing I didn't like was the noise level; I prefer a quieter setting in which I don't feel like I have to yell.
The omakase was delightful; very nice variety of flavors and dishes. Some combinations of flavors really wowed me.
My husband and I celebrated our wedding anniversary. I noted this in the reservation and everyone we interacted with was sure to wish us well. Our server, Casey, was outstanding. He made remarkable suggestions that were delightful and the complimentary tastes only elevated our experience. We’ve dined here before and came for our favorite dishes but Casey was the only server to explain the chef menu in a way that leaves wanting to return and give it a try. We were very pleased with our entire experience.
Amazing food and service! We highly recommend the premium omakase!
Great food and always but the noise level is crushing. Customers shouting to be heard over unnecessary and irrelevant music is too much.
Good but expensive.
We booked here after friends told us som and er are so Happy we did. When we arrived we had to wait for the table for 25 minuters but they gave us wine while we waited and also some starters from the kitchen so we felt taken care of. We had a very Nice and attentive waiter and he helped us compose our dinner and we had the best meal during our stay in Chicago.
Some of the sushi roles seemed to be premade as the rice was a bit dry, but we got there early so that might be part of their evening routine to premake some items. Overall very good!
Outstanding as always.
Excellent hostess and server
Muy buen ambiente con servicio muy atento y la comida espectacular.
Always lovely to dine at Roka Akor
This is a beautiful place. The service is amazing, the food , variety, choice of wine etc. The sharing platter was perfect for our occasion. I am
Impress how organized they are. Ben Uvodich, the manager is amazing, contacted him by e-mail, quick reply, helpful and made our experience the best.
Excellent meals, we allowed our waiter Anthony to pick our meals and not only was he an entertaining addition to our meal, his choices were perfect! I recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a fun night out!
Food and service were amazing. Noise level was horrible. We only had 6 people at a round table and you could barely hear anyone.
Your server Brian was outstanding. We put our order in his hands and it was perfect.
We dined omakase style, choosing the "decadent" option. Everything from the service, to the wine, to the food - absolutely amazing!
