The steaks are outstanding! Flat iron with a side of bone marrow for the win!

Service, which is always good, was even better. Everything we ordered was delicious. The 3 of us come on a semi-regular basis and are always delighted with our experiences.

Great service, food wine list and flawless food - we had 5 dishes to share for two, which was more than enough. Sushi, fried tofu, cauliflower with Parmesan and crispy squid were all delicious.

Service just not great - bar and restaurant but food tasty. Expensive which I knew but not worth it. Kind of snobby vibe. Wouldn’t go again. Steak was delicious.

Spectacular food! Loved every bite! The Wagu beef sampler was over the top and the sushi was incredible. We really splurged and our bill reflected that, but our son was home from college and we were feeling indulgent and celebratory!

I love this restaurant. First time we visited for our 14th Marriage Anniversary! Sushi, pork, beef everything fresh and perfect decoration! We invited my parents from Japan and my lovely great Flamenco& Spanish dance dance teacher (choreographer) . They loves Food and kindness services. It is different from original Robata style and music volume is too much. But I really recommend to visit for special ocasiones!!! Enjoy!!

I've had pleasant lunch experiences here, so we tried it for dinner with friends. We were seated next to the kitchen where the chefs regularly shouted so loud I kept jumping, and it was very hard to hear the person next to me. I was hopeful that the food would make up for the noise, but my black cod was over cooked and our server forgot both my side dishes. They were finally brought out after I finished my entree and there was so much butter it was hard to taste the mushrooms. Overall very disappointing.

We were a table of 5 and seated in a semi-private room yet able to enjoy the ambiance of the restaurant. We all enjoyed the amazing spread of the Roka Akor Omakase, a Chef's selection. A great way to enjoy the variety of food selection.

We went for a birthday, and while it was very expensive, the food was delicious and it was a nice special occasion spot. I had the steak with grilled bone marrow and would recommend.

They had a nice life sorbet dessert they brought out for the birthday boy and the birthday note on the table was a nice touch too.

Our crew ended up spending about $60-70pp.

The food here is the best I've had so far. It is high quality and you can taste the quality in every bite. I recommend people visiting San Francisco with money to spend to make a stop here. This kind of setting is very Bruce Wayne esque.

I’m allergic to chiles and requested to omit chiles in the fried squid. It was served with sliced jalapeños all over, unfortunately!
