Everything was delicious starting with the perfectly chilled dry Belvedere martini to the lobster gyoza, spicy edamame, grilled scallops and the shrimp tempura, squash blossom and veggie tempura and the yummy bone marrow.side dish. It was a perfect birthday dinner celebration!

Roka will forever be in my top 5. Best happy hour deal in the city, and you can’t beat the quality fish they use. Every piece is amazing. Expensive, but totally worth it.

Steak is not worth it, not even if it is Wagyu. Everything else is good

My best visit ever. The difference was our waitress. I think her name was Japonica. She really took the time to describe every dish we ordered. Of course, the food is always yummy.

The food was amazing and very interesting. We had a few appetizers and some rolls and it was reasonable. You can spend a lot or not and the food is wonderful. The restaurant is gorgeous and the service was very good. Highly recommend going there for a meal.

The Omakase was stellar. Outstanding value for what was delivered. After living in SF for 13 years, this was one of the most diverse, well rounded and executed meals I've ever had in this genre . A little loud and dark where we sat but I will definitely be back.

Had dinner for first time here. Had been before for lunch. Menu is much more comprehensive. Food is pretty good. Had Japanese Waguy beef, which was great as well as salmon and tuna belly. Only issue is we paid $300 per person and were still hungry by the end of the dinner.

En general la comida buena! Con buena calidad, muy pequeñas algunas porciones, ejemplo los nigiris, el servicio deja mucho que desear, nos toman en cuenta la reservación, estuvimos más de 20 minutos esperando en el bar, mientras antes pasaron a gente que llegó después de nosotros y ahí nos olvidaron como a otros que ya habíamos llegado, después de esto el gerente ofreció disculpas y aviso que traía un postre de regalo por esta espera, NUNCA LLEGÓ ! (No por el postre si no por la mentira del gerente) después del error y la espera hacia varios clientes nos comenta del postre y todavía ni siquiera lo hace !!

Food was good but service was VERY SLOPPY. Our waitress took our orders and only showed up once after we paid. Another server or bus boy took our plates and didn’t bring new ones until we asked and he brought back only one while we were still waiting for our third appetizer which never came. He kept coming back to wipe our table even though it was clean! We ordered dessert but it was not ‘communicated’ properly according to the manager. He apologized and gave us dessert on the house! Service was totally unacceptable for an upscale restaurant such as Roka Akor!

I'm honestly thinking my best dinner ever although we did add to the scrumptious four course tasting menu with 3 ounces of unbelievable Japanese Grade A5+ Takamori Drunken Wagyu Beef from Yamaguchi Prefecture. Wow! Also wonderful service as always in a friendly, welcoming place.

Hostess was courteous and friendly, food was amazing and worth every penny. I’ve been here a few times and I will suggest seating upstairs for the best experience because when I dine downstairs, the bar server made me not want to go back again. I’m paying $350+ for my meal and drinks, the least the Seneca Crane looking guy could do, was not act like snob. He was inconsiderate and unfriendly, and interacting with him was such a drag.

Great food, excellent service and good drinks. If you enjoy Asian/Japanese fusion cuisine, then you'll enjoy their dining experience from cold/hot apps to entrees to meat/waygu to rolls and seafood. All good. And don't forget their phenomenal chocolate cake. OMG and I don't even like chocolate. So good. Wagyu was great.. Buttery tender.. Phenomenal flavor. Truly missed it since our trip to Japan. This was our 2nd time.. Will be back again.

Our service as usual is always fabulous. Our 5 year old daughter was with us and they made sure to include her in the conversation and ensure she was happy. The food was amazing. We’ve dined here a few times and we’ve never had a bad experience!
