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!
Excellent food and wine
It was busy but they gave us excellent table
Amazing service again and food impeccable.
The tasting menu is highly recommended. Service was A+. A go to place in River North.
Visited whilst in Chicago and was interested to see how it compared to the London restaurants.
Food and service was excellent and great value for money. Waiter was attentive and informative but not intrusive.
Larger portions than ?London as you would expect but cheaper prices.
Overall a great night out and would highly recommend.
Absolutely delightful. I sat at the counter overlooking the sushi chefs although I had a steak. Fun to watch them all interacting basically without a word being exchanged between them and interacting by instinct.
My steak was excellent and the bone marrow extremely creamy. I also had the crispy brussel sprouts which had bonito flakes on them and I was blown away by their taste.
A delightful time. The bar was also a treat in that they were happy to concoct a Corpse Reviver #2 for me. It was my birthday so they gave me a complimentary dessert accompanied by champagne which was lovely. A wonderful place. Go there.
Our service was amazing and the food was great too! We ordered 5 items to share between 3 people and that was pretty perfect for a lighter meal that left everyone full without being overly stuffed. Location is great, we were going to a show at the Chicago Theatre. The server got us out right on time based on our schedule to make our show.
Excellent food, great menu choices. Nice setting! Service was fine.
Amazing Experience and food was outstanding. Best place I have been in Chicago so far
Amazing food. I keep returning to this restaurant, I never leave disappointed.
Amazing food and service was outstanding!
Lunch food took 1.5hrs
I really enjoyed my meal from start to finish and the service was great!
Excellent service, food was fantastic. Will definitely be returning.
Sushi rolls unimpressive. Server was not very helpful or attentive. Bar stools incredibly uncomfortable. Very good roka fashion cocktail however (old fashioned).
We had a great time celebrating our anniversary. Everything that we ate was really good. We loved the mushroom rice. The maki selections were all very good and straight forward. We plan to return to try the steak.
Brilliant food great service,well worth a visit
Great food as usual! Been here a few time And it never disappoints. Waygu sirlion as fantastic. Waygu dumplings and shrimp dumplings were amazing. Service was excellent. Personal favorite is their wide selection of sushi. We shared the seared scallops too. All the food was very good. Definitely will be back!
Lovely food but too noisy
5 of us tried the Omakase tasting menu. We thoroughly enjoyed each course, with many highlights. One of our party is not a "sushi person", so the chef accommodated with great success. Server, Mark, did a great job.
Absolutely amazing every single time ! Hands down one of the best places I’ve ever eaten in Chicago! 🤤🤤🤤I made a reservation for a date after having posted a review from a prior dining experience. The assistant manager went out of his way to ensure an above par dinner and experience as well as taking care of the bill for us for no reason specifically. Best service, best food, amazing ambience and by far highly recommended as one of my favorite places in all of Chicago. Thank you Roka Akor for this incredibly unique and fantastic experience I won’t forget and neither will my guest. Recommend the crispy squid, bone in ny strip or anything with the miso truffle butter and Brussel sprouts just incredible every single time. Above reproach 👌
Creative, high quality sushi related cuisine
Simplemente excelente. En mi próxima visita a Chicago sin duda alguna regresaré
Excellent food and service overall. Probably the best quality beef in town.
Funky Japenese themed quisine that was quite tasty. Good drinks in a nice environment to talk freely. Waitstaff outstanding, thoughtful and honestly helpful!
Food was good but service was awful! Big party of 10 and very disappointing. We spent more than 1k and the waitress didn’t give a S** for our table.
It was my birthday and I was embarrassed
Fancy enough menu without being toooo crazy. Omikase menu is delicious.
Wonderful tasting experience
