    My family and I enjoyed a wonderful evening last weekend. We ordered the Roka fashion, a favorite cocktail here, to get us started and we proceeded with appetizers that everyone so enjoyed we simply ordered apps the entire evening. Our faves were the dumplings, the prawns and the prime rib, so we ordered them twice! But the shishito peppers and crispy squid were also good.

    We liked all of the food (sushi and steak) except for the dumplings. The music was loud for such a small place so it was hard to converse. It was also a bit pricey.

    Went on valentines so I expected service and quality to take a dip due to volume of guests, I usually go to Roka at lunch, which I think personally has a better value and selection that I enjoy. The tables they put during valentines was so small that you could hardly fit your food on it! Really was trying to maximize the space but comfort of patrons was diminished.

    Never ever disappointed…the chefs know what they’re doing and the owners excel at hiring good waitpersons (our server last night was amazing) and the service—even the bussers are friendly and attentive. One suggestion— it would be nice if you could come up with a couple more vegetarian entrées/staples and specials on your menu. It’s no problem because we do still come for the lovely brussels sprouts & other side but…. Thank you. (We sat at 5:00-8:30 pm on 2/3/24.)

    I’ve never had a bad meal at Roka Akor Old Orchard. The service team is top notch and the food is always consistently deliciously. Considering the price point, you’d think it wouldn’t be the most ideal restaurant to bring your little ones. That couldn’t be rather from the truth. The staff does a great job of making you feel like family. Ruth, our server, went above and beyond to make us feel welcomed and taken care of. Roka Akor Old Orchard is great for any occasion. Family dinner with the little ones, or an anniversary with just your significant other.

    The seats were so closed together you can hear everyone’s conversation We did the restaurant week menu and the whole thing was delicious. Sirloin and lamb dish were phenomenal. The ube dessert was really tasty. The only pairing on the wine list for $25 that we liked was the espresso martini , the rest of the drinks tasted cheap

    We had "boys night" that we usually have every 2 months or so. The idea is to try different food and experience different cuisines. We have never been before at Roka Akor, although we had some strong recommendations. We all had a three-course meal followed sake tasting. Entire meal was served seamlessly, and more important food was really delicious. We thoroughly enjoyed food and ourselves. Maybe, it is pricey, but it was worth a try. Great place to go again.

    Food was excellent but we were rushed out. We were served our appetizer 5 minutes after sitting down. Our main course was served 5 minutes later, while I was still eating my appetizer. We were out the door 35 minutes later.

    We went here for restaurant week and had a wonderful dinner. The food was delicious. We had a nice table in the heated porch. The restaurant was full but not crowded. The service was kind, but impatient. We sat down and ordered the tasting menu and pairings and the waiter returned with two glasses- our welcome Prosecco and the white wine for the appetizer. He returned 3 minutes later with the apps. They kept trying to take our dishes away while we were eating. Then they brought the entrees and tried to squeeze them on the table with the next glass of wine. Desert came with yet another drink- a delicious coffee martini— all that and the bill in under an hour! the food is delicious, the wine pairings very unimpressive. Glad I didn’t try to finish 4 drinks in an hour!

    We had a fabulous dinner! It was our first time at Roka Akor and it happened to be Restaurant Week too. Our server, Dan, was great about handling gluten allergies and they made adjustments to their planned restaurant week menu for me. We had nice cocktails to start and then two courses and a dessert. Everything was terrific. The Hamachi Serrano Maki and Escolar Tatki, White Asparagus was a perfect start to the dinner. I highly enjoyed the Wagyi Sirloin and my husband loved the Yuzo Miso Marinated Black Cod. Lastly, my husband said that the Chocolate Cake, Chocolate Pearls, Vanilla Ice Cream was one of the best desserts he has had. We will be back soon!

    Love this place but this time surprised that brussel sprouts were overly salted and tempura was quite greasy…I also got my entree almost 10 min later than 3 others and appetizer as part of lunch set were too salty & served last. I think it might have been an off day. However, The rice was perfect (very important) and the ube flan absolutely delicious.
