My glass of water came broken and the glass of my drink too!!!
Wagyu was amazing and reason for the visit! Drinks were great and entrees even better! music choice not favorite, but trendy is trendy I guess.
Roka Akor always delivers a great experience.
Service was amazing and the food was excellent!
My family and I love Roka Akor and this meal didn’t disappoint. Everything was excellent. The only thing was that the wagyu beef should’ve been sliced thinner so that it would’ve been easier to eat without having to ask for forks and knives.
We sat outside because of covid. By stepping inside, it looked quite swanky. The FOOD, so good. We had the Decadent Chef Selection. My favs were the scallops, the wasabi puree was soooo good, the steak and bone marrow was so good and then there was a purple Ugo(?) as part of the dessert that made me want more and that was after I ate more of it than my guest :) that ugo was the perfect ending to an overall great meal
Great date night spot!
Great experience, our waiter had fantastic recommendations!
Amazing food, too hot in restaurant.
The quality of food and staff’s professionalism is awesome! Had dinner at Roka Akor for a few times and so far one of my favorite restaurants in Chicago Loop.
Best Halal Steak we ever had . Highly recommended for any one searching for Halal steak. They have few halal item on menu , confirm with the Waiter first
10/10 love the sushi, the owner/manager great person charismatic and amiable. We had the honor of having him as our waiter he cater really we’ll definitely return.
Dave our sever is one of the best. Friendly, helpful, cordial. Food was delivered timely.
Great service by waiter Aaron.
Great food and service
Had a nice time with my wife. The food and wine were very good. I would say my only disappointment was that later in the meal the service got slow and we went through two courses without getting a refill on our wine. Food was tasty and cooked the way we asked.
Where do I start? The food was amazing!! The lamb chops and pork belly? OMG! The ambiance was nice and the service top notch. I will be back!
Go there once a year for special occasions. Always have a good time and great food.
Fantastic service. It was great talking to the manager who is an English soccer fan and our server Natasha was excellent. Our dinner sitting outside under their huge marquee was delicious. We had 4 small plates, 2 large breads and a fabulous dessert. Everything was delicious, imaginative and perfectly cooked and presented.
Great place and we will definitely return on our next visit to Chicago ❤️
We had a great time. As we sat outside noise was moderate. Ordered Omikase - fabulous!
Good not great! Things were a bit off timing wise. However the staff was great the food was more hit than miss. Omasake decadent.
The time I spent at Roka Akor was the highlight of my Chicago visit. The food was amazing, the service A+, making me feel like I had a cozy dinner amongst my close friends.
The service was great! Greeted as soon as we sat down. And our server was very knowledgeable about the menu.
We made reservations, arrived in time and were seated within 5 minutes. However, twice starters were brought to our take that we didn't order. We also noticed they are short-staffed. While the food was good, it wasn't too the satisfaction or expectation I had for the restaurant rating. I walked away feeling the need to eat again and we ordered multiple plates and sides.
Incredible meal! The decadent tasting menu was superb!
Roka never disappoints! Although, I wish they’d not change their drinks menu. Food and service was perfect and the front staff were very accommodating.
The Nigri was fabulous, the best we have had in Chicago. The wagyu beef dumplings were also incredible. We will go back.
The food was excellent. Everything was better than expected. Korean Lamb chops are a must
Great food and workers. Fabiola at the patio is awesome
As someone who always goes with the Omakase option at restaurants, this was one of the best I’ve ever had. Absolutely amazing food with great service and spectacular portions.
Had a wonderful time! Great Experience! Loved the Desserts!
This is the best meal I have ever had in my life. It changed how I view food in a way.
Hosts, waiter, and supporting staff were all very nice and attentive.
Fun, lively place with great food and service!! Will be back on my next visit to Chicago!
If you are looking for a Omakase experience, this is not it.
It felt like bad buffet brought to your table.Definitely not worth the $. Would never go back nor recommend.
Nothing about the meal was amazing. True Omakase is incredible, don’t be fooled.
Great experience, friendly and helpful waitstaff, they had great recommendations and gave guidance on all the food. Went here for a birthday celebration and it was a dining experience that was very worth it. Omakase - will fill you up.
Best meal in my life hands down
Food was okay.
Food was truly excellent and service was fantastic. Great place for a special occasion!
