    Came in for restaurant week and really enjoyed our first time here. Our server was attentive and helpful but it did take some time for us to get our first round and food order in, but once we got them it was wonderful! Cocktail was a bit too tart but still had great flavor. The diver scallops were to die for! Lamb chops cooked perfectly and the BEST ube I’ve ever had. Knock-out.

    I choose Roka Akor Chicago for the unfailingly excellent food and service. Even when I've eaten elsewhere, I prefer to close a dinner date here for dessert and drinks. The team is welcoming and the ambiance is positive and upbeat. The food - I've never eaten anything here that was less than excellent, and the people I have brought as guests are always impressed by the experience.

    The quality of food, drinks, ambiance, and service were outstanding. However, the portions can be rather small for the price point. Finally, the optional, not-justified, three-percent processing fee seems to be quite petty for an establishment that aims to position itself as fine dining. The menu only says that they will add this fee without explaining what it is for. They do give the customer the option to have it removed, but why would they want to put the customer in that position when they can just charge more for menu items?

    We got the signature chef tasting menu. The menu was very basic and was not cooked well; certainly not worth the price. The fish and steak were both very dry. Service was inattentive.

    It’s truly a bang for your buck Omakase experience, you get to fill up on tasty dishes but the quality isn’t there. The sashimi was lackluster and the buratta threw me off. The NY strip steak is not worth the price. An overall decent meal.

    Dined for first time on Christmas Eve. Busy but not too bad. Service was attentive. Food was good. Dumplings and octopus were standouts. Sushi good. Steaks were ok. For the price paid, expected better. Son inquired if he got all 10oz of strip. : ) It comes deboned and sliced. Crab legs were good. Cocktails were very good. Ambiance is nice at a booth. Enjoyed time with family. Good meal but for price expected better. Nice to try a new restaurant. Worth a first visit not sure about second.

    They immediately greeted us smiling, took us to our table and we had such a lovely spot. We ordered the Decadent Omakase and a few cocktails! Everything was lovely. The coursing was fast but not too fast. Our server was attentive and the server assistant made sure the table was always clean and tidy. I loved the experience and will definitely be back to order some of the items we had on the Omakase.

    Celebrated my birthday here and it was an great all around experience. Drinks were well crafted and strong and all food we ordered was excellent. Service was also exceptional. There was a slight delay in getting our sushi rolls (not a big deal to us) and they went above and beyond for that delay giving us a free dessert and after dinner drink. Highly recommend.
