Food was wonderful! Staff was very helpful on choice! Definelty will be back.
Anthony is awesome!! Excellent meal!
Overall a great experience. Great service and the food was top notch. Guy was our server and he was great. It was our first time there and he explained everything and recommended a perfect meal.
The food came out very quickly and the servers were attentive!
Food was fine if overpriced. Wine prices were inflated more than typical for the city. Our server was very bad; didn’t know the menu which almost led to someone in our party eating something they were allergic too. The restaurant let a table next to us get extremely drunk. To the point that one of the guests fell out of their chair and passed out. They were not asked to leave. She eventually got sick on herself in the middle of the restaurant. The response from our server was “Never a dull moment, lol, how about desert?” Unacceptable for a place attempting to be high end. Will not be returning.
Food was excellent, but expensive for what you get. Try the wag you beef and kimchi dumplings! Yum.
Everything was delicious!! The lamb chops were the best I’ve ever had anywhere! Definitely my Top favorite restaurant!
The service was impeccable. It was my hubby's birthday and the staff made him feel extremely special. The food was DELICIOUS!!! This restaurant is definitely a 10+. We would definitely dine here again.
Fined for the second time and our experience was again wonderful. The hospitality at the restaurant was amazing, our server Jenifer was wonderful! Great selection of drinks, aka Japanese whiskey for my whiskey drinkers. Delicious sushi and desserts
Traditional sushi is not really traditional, but okay.
Great nigiri sushi, comparable to sushi restaurants in Japan.
One of my absolute Chicago favorites, maybe in fact my favorite. Food is just outstanding, if you like steak, well truffle butter, you know what I mean. Besides that a wide range of terrific Japanese choices... everything is modern, very far from your neighborhood sushi place. Cool, airy interior. professional and friendly service.
Waiter was great, expected bus service to be a little more “polished”. Waygu nigiri was awesome as was the pork belly. Sushi rolls had a weird seasoning on them. Individual sushi was was as expected.
This place was great, my colleague and I enjoyed a delicious meal. We tried multiple rolls, appetizer and beverages and it was all outstanding. Service was excellent and we had a very nice visit here. Cannot wait to come back and try some more of the sushi.
Delicious and beautiful preparation:)
Roka Akor is also terrific! The food and service is fabulous and the ambiance is lovely. One of my top go-spot to meet friends for lunch, drinks or dinner.
Great experience. Celebrating my wife’s Birthday. Food was amazing and service was excellent. Definitely one of my favorite places!
We are relatively frequent visitors to Roka Akor and always go with the decadent tasting menu. They do seem to have reduced the number of courses compared to what we remember from previous visits. While the food is top quality, the evening was marred by over-enthusiastic wait staff clearing the table too quickly - at one point they started to take the food away before my wife had finished and when we made a comment, instead of moving away and returning later, he stood there until she took the last piece and then immediately removed the plate. Overall for the price you pay for the tasting menu it was far too rushed and not what we would have expected from such a restaurant.
My daughter and I went early and I am so glad we did. We had an amazing experience. The food was spectacular, but the staff is what made our night truly special. We sampled a variety of different menu items along with some of the signature cocktails.
Fantastic food and wonderful service! Great experience and all we could ask for.
The freshest fish, taste apps, perfect edemame combined with good service. What more could you ask for?
It’s always a dining pleasure. The food is awesome. I recommend to anyone
Server and the rest of the wait staff were phenomenal. The restaurant looked great, but was extremely loud.
Great food, great atmosphere, & great service. Overall 5 star good time...
It was bustling about, packed house on Saturday night. Lively ambiance and generous portions. 11/10 would bang again.
Sushi was fresh, wait staff and management were very friendly,
Great place for dinner / and a night out. Although it is a chain is doesn't feel like it.
Amazing food!! Was not planning on having steak but was persuaded instead of stopping at our shareable sushi!!! The Waugh filet was one of the most amazing things I have ever eaten!!! Especially dipped in the truffle aioli!!!
Fish was high quality and fresh. Service was great.
Fantastic food and fantastic service.... our waiter went above and beyond!
Awesome time with family and friends. Best filet!
Casey was awesome. Keep up the great work. Thank you.
The food especially the sushi was outstanding. We all also loved the vegetable sides especially the Brussel Sprouts. Our service made excellent recommendations throughout the evening. In addition, the New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc was greatly appreciated...
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
This is a fine restaurant. However the seating given was tight ab the edge of a corner. The table next to us was literally 2 feet away. There was no privacy. I should have asked to be reseated given that my date was quite uncomfortable. We also felt a bit rushed. The food was excellent and service wonderful. Given previous better situation will repeat
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!
