We love Roka Akor server’s are always very pleasant and helpful. They were very agreeable to doing Social distancing and that was much appreciated. Unfortunately the table that was 6 feet away from us was incredibly noisy. I don’t understand why people have to be that loud when you’re in an environment where the ones nearby are not being loud. Consideration would’ve been nice,but they were clueless. Not the restaurants fault. Food was fabulous

Bad crab legs some was not cooked and tasted really bad and we told the waiter and did not take it off the bills. Don’t order seafood here as smells bad and tastes bad. Manager did not care enough to say sorry. But I will say the steak was amazing!

The server mentioned she couldn’t do a half pour of wine for me when I’ve been there before and have gotten a half pour.

We ended up downstairs at the bar instead of upstairs in the main restaurant and the experience was incredible! Very personalized service from the staff and they were happy to take care of my existing reservation so I didn't have to pay/cancel. Food is wonderful. This is a must-visit in SFO!

Disappointing compared to Roka in Chicago. The food is very good but not compared to the price.

Great casual ambiance. excellent service! Food was very well prepared but a bit of a let down given all the rave reviews and high prices (due to a la carte ordering)

Sashimi app was great; chefs choice nigiri was average (and thus overpriced) Love black cod and expected melt in your mouth but it was a little too firm and bland. Didn’t care for the heavy sauce.

Others really enjoyed their steaks and mushroom hotpot (sort of like risotto)

Food is pricey but amazing. Highly recommend the yellowtail, the dumplings, sashimi, and filet to share family style.

Great ambience and the food was delicious. The service was pretty good and the staff friendly. They forgot one of our orders, but besides that it was a great experience.

Experience was pleasant, service was great. Typical San Francisco Japanese steakhouse, high price sushi, well plated but lacking flare for price. Rate sashimi in Vegas better, chicken was fabulous, Mayo was overly salty and had peculiar aftertaste. Would recommend, but not a have to return.

Absolutely the best birthday dinner I have had in a while. The restaurant started a bit noisy but got better as folks left. Our server brought each course at the perfect time leaving enough time for conversation. we had a drink before dinner at the downstairs bar and the bartender/mixologist was amazing and informative.
so much fun and worth the price.
