Favorite restaurant in SF. It’s been 8/8 for me on blowing my mind with unique flavors. It’s expensive but worth it for nice occasions.

I took my friend there to celebrate her Birthday and we had an incredible experience.
We decided to go with the "Roka Akor Omakase." Making no decisions was the best decision ever! The food was phenomenon and plentiful, we ate every morsel. I can't wait for another special occasion to pop up so I go again. Loved it!

Our server made the experience so enjoyable! The food was exceptional and they went above and beyond for my boyfriend’s birthday. It made our night a million times better than what we expected and I’m thankful I chose to go there. Definitely a bit on the pricier side, but worth the money.

Came to celebrate an occasion after hearing good things about their Chicago location from a friend. The Wagyu sirloin is great, and the bone marrow is lovely; but the dry-aged prime rib was a bit too tough that I couldn't swallow it lol 🥲

Bummer that the sides came halfway through the main meal, and one of our drinks never came.. We ended up just taking things to-go by the end of the night.

The server who took our order for the steaks was to new to take our order, we waited for another 10 mins to find out that we had to reorder. Then after reordered, we ordered a filet and a ribeye and they got two ribeyes and forgot my steak filet…. Just poor communication and terrible service.

The food is incredible. As with most restaurants, they are adding in a mandatory gratuity that we found out goes to the restaurant and only 5% to the server. At least that is what we were told. We left another hefty tip due to that information from the server. It was a pricey meal - 300 bucks for the two of us. We left full and happy.

Food overpriced.
Wine list not clear about pricing. Felt conned into $85 bottle of Sancerre.
18% service charge - option should be discussed to reduce this charge, in addition to the narrative to increasing it.

Easily the best food we’ve ever had. Every flavor was unique and became the top of the list. The bar downstairs offered a wonderfully intimate mood for our 10 year anniversary. Couldn’t have been more pleased with the food, the service, the ambiance, and even the other staff that didn’t necessarily wait on us. Incredible. Thank you for the memories. 💕
