    We had an excellent anniversary dinner at Roka Akor! The food was delicious and the melt-in-your-mouth sashimi very fresh!! We had an outstanding bottle of sake, fried chicken, scallops, and two marbled rib eye steaks with asparagus alongside. There was no room for dessert but we walked away very happy.

    We had an amazing dining experience at Roka Akor. The food was incredible as were the Blood Orange Margaritas. Service was wonderful, especially considering I am currently on crutches and the hostess as well as the manager, Mel, made sure to offer assistance, without me asking, accompanying me to the elevator upon arrival and when we were paying our check. Highly recommend!

    This is our fourth time taking friends and family to enjoy the omakase within the last few months. I’m sorry to say that we did not enjoy it as much as we have on previous visits. Five out of six of us added the sake pairing. I had to ask for our sake a couple of times to enjoy with our meal. I do hope this was an isolated incident but it does make me think twice on spending so much for omakase and sake pairing if we are not able to have the service we’ve become accustomed to.

    We came for my cousin’s high school graduation. We did the Omaseke experience. I have done a lot of food and wine pairings in the past and this was by far the best experience. Our server was amazing and we sat at the sushi bar and got to talk to chefs Nathaniel and we believe Adam. They made the evening wonderful. Sushi will forever be changed in our hearts.

    We had outside seating and the experience didn’t disappoint. The food is/was consistently fantastic, as expected. Stephanie, our server, provided a most personalized service, warm and efficient. Barry (manager?), honored a Covid-era gift card and vouchers (much appreciated!). Roka Akor SF remains one of our family’s go-to restaurant in San Francisco!

    From the moment we stepped into the restaurant we were given incredible customer service. We couldn’t get a table, but managed to book a couple of seats at the bar. The great thing is the counter was set lower and seats were still nice and low as opposed to bar stools and the table was really cute. The waiters recommended some lovely items from the menu. Can’t fault any of the food. So beautiful. I loved the ambiance, will definitely be back.

    Quality of food was amazing! Unagi &amp; seared scallop with truffles and Parmesan was delicious. Tiger shrimp tempura was amazing. Porky belly could have used a bit more love, a little more glaze-but the quality of it was really good. Miso Cod was cooked beautifully! Next time I’m sitting at the sushi bar area.

    Overall I’m a bit disappointed given the expectations I had from the ambiance,pricing and reviews. The food was just OK. We had a yellowtail appetizer and the fish quality was truly mediocre. Tuna and crispy rice appetizer was a lackluster version of this app and again fish quality was noticeably lower than it should be at a sushi-oriented place. Those were two examples but the theme persisted throughout. Basically the food was fine but not very good. Service was good in some areas and below average in others. A little uplevel of quality and this would be a true gem
