Outstanding food & service
Everything was perfect, except maybe the prices. Dinner for the 3 of us, mostly in the nature of appetizers but one shared entree, was well over $700. We added a $200 tip. We had 2 very creative and delicious cocktails and 1 carafes of medium prices sake. Definitely only for special occasions, at least for us.
Nice outdoor seating. Could be improved with plexiglass rather than plastic sheeting. Interesting upbeat music. Service was fast, friendly and outstanding. We enjoyed every plate that reached our table. Highly recommend and would return.
Celebrated my birthday with their Omakase option and it was the best experience ever. They really accommodate you and take care of you. The ambience, service, and flavor quality is top notch. The only downside is how painfully full I was after the 7-courses between just 2 people. I feel like the omakase was meant for 3+ people but regardless it was such a great event. Would love to go again and try other things off the menu. This place won’t disappoint!!!
Yellowtail appetizer is the best, perfect texture and great balance of many different flavors. Salmon/crab roll is the best sushi roll we had. Lobster roll tastes great just a bit too bulky. Would be ideal if there was less rice in the lobster roll. Lamb chop has an unique Asian flavor with side dipping made form Gochujang. Chocolate cake is a must every time we come here.
Service was great but sushi was just okay. Maybe we just caught them on an off night.
Our first time in this restaurant but we already read about the favorite dishes that everyone orders and we find their food especially the wagyu beef with bone marrow…really it is delicious. Their seafood is so fresh and sauces compliment the dish, presentation is the best and very attentive server and all of them know their dishes when they served them to you. It was my birthday and really the best experience. Plus they observe protocols for infection control. And that is a plus for me.
Fantastic food (even for a non-sushi person like me) with amazing flavor and beautifully presented. Excellent, friendly service.
Beautiful place and great service. Unfortunately the happy hour is no longer offered. A website update would be very beneficial to keep the place to its highest standards.
Our waiter was phenomenal. Provided excellent service!
Everything was amazing!!
Excellent dining experience! From service to quality of food—The best and perfection! Thank you Roka Akor for making our anniversary amazing! We will definitely be back! ❤️
Great experience from our server James wasn’t there however our experience was great.
Food was melt in your mouth amazing. Our server Erik was attentive and knowledgeable about the menu, cocktails and wine.
Our server Jeff was very knowledgeable with the wine pairings and the food. Extremely willing to help and all the stuff is very attentive.
Experience was great from our consultants James he always takes great care of me personally or when with my family. Great hospitality from James as well as the young lady who poured our ice waters. - De’Maraie
Incredible dinner with my fiance for New Year's Eve and so grateful for wonderful staff and management
Food as always amazing! We were seated by the back door, which is held open with a patio heater. Needless to say my beautiful bride was so cold she ate dinner with her coat on. We traded places, and I then had to put my coat on because of the draft that blew through the door anytime a server walked in or out. Recommend not to sit there, ask to be seated somewhere else immediately.
Perfect New Year’s Eve dinner to ring in the 2022 new year, particularly as I am of Japanese descent and wanted Japanese cuisine to celebrate Oshogatsu. Our 1st time there…way overdue…Ordered robata scallops, pork belly, corn, asparagus, ribeye, sirloin with bone marrow and french fries. All perfect and most delicious. Photo booth in lower bar area. Looking forward for our next special dinner there.
My BF & I enjoyed dining at the bar ( downstairs.)
It was very spacious and comfortable - felt a little bit cold .
We ordered the New Year’s Eve special menu.
Foods & service were excellent and price was reasonable for what you get.
We were lucky enough to catch a reservation, here, after our original reservation was canceled due to a covid outbreak. Fortunately, this place surpassed all of our original expectations for a birthday dinner out!
The food was beautifully-presented, but was also super tasty. Too often, you get one or the other, but Roka nailed both! The apps were amazing (sashimi tacos and beef & kimchi dumplings) and the sushi was off the charts - really great fish and some amazing taste combinations. We had the ribeye to top everything off and it was perfectly cooked and seasoned.
Can't leave this review without talking about the attentive and professional staff, and especially our server Artem, who was charming, knowledgable on point!
We brought our 8 year old and we’re treated so well for a very special holiday family night. The servers were wonderful and the food incredible. The salmon belly is as our favorite.
$600.00 for four is steep. Thank you for complimentary desserts. Steak was very small for the price. Thank you all for making my retirement dinner special.
Had the tasting menu and it was sublime. Well worth doing to try a little bit of everything
Our experience at Rok was outstanding from start to finish. The ambience of the restaurant is breathtaking. The service was excellent. But the food! Omg the food! So, so delicious. The Black cod wrapped in a leaf and grilled is one of the best dishes I have ever had! Loved it. We will definitely be back!
Waiter really didn't have much knowledge of the Japanese sake. They should bring sommeliers or qualified people to the table to facilitate selection. Portion sizes
were small except for the fried chicken. Food in general was good, not fantastic.
For the prices they are charging, bringing IPA's in cans to the table for self service is such a turnoff.
It was a very pleasant experience. Definitely recommend it!
We ordered two steak dishes, one of them was fine, the other one not so much. My husband’s steak is not bad, not very impressive but decent. I ordered a steak for medium, and when I first got the steak, it was cut into huge pieces, and they don’t have a steak knife. I was struggling to eat it. The server was nice enough to cut them into smaller pieces. Then I realized it was too rare. I’m not an expert on steaks but that’s definitely not medium, more like rare in the center. I can’t really eat it. The server is very nice and remade it for me, but it was still kind of dry, not very good. The restaurant is not cheap and we’re expecting better food. The environment is nice and servers are nice, but the food is kind of disappointing.
Celebration dinner on Christmas Eve. Service and food were top notch. We had omalase and a few ala carte dishes, hence was able to enjoy the widest selection of food on the menu. Will definitely visit again.
This place never disappoints. I’ve ordered take out here and it’s my second time coming back to dine in.
Service and food were wonderful! Staff was knowable of menu items and made great suggestions. Multiple staff member assisted with our party of 5. Will defiantly visit ROKA again!
An amazing experience!
THIS IS A FOODIE Restaurant!! Best Lamb chops in SF hands down!
Lobster 🦞 & Fish 🐟 were excellent as well! Lots of reviews a couple of months ago & more about bad service
They must have addressed this b’cuz service was also excellent! Also saw a lot of reviews of overcooked foods & slow service. My suggestion would be to go B 4 they get real busy like I did,
At 5pm then there won’t be any problems! THIS IS A TOP TEN
RESTAURANT IN SF!! A MUST TRY!!!

Thank you for noticing our attention to some of our shortcomings from earlier this year. We hope that we have taken the necessary steps to combat these issues and it certainly seems we've made an improvement based on your review! We look forward to having you back in with us!
Great food, great service and took note of the special celebration with on the house sparkling wine for everyone and macaroons for dessert
As usual, everything was outstanding!
awesome food and service; would come back here again.
We had a fabulous time dining at the bar. Loved our waiter..he was attentive and super friendly. 95% of the food was superb. The only reason I gave 4 stars overall is bc it was super expensive. It was a very special treat.
the food here is cooked to perfection. best meal out in a long time.
incredible vegetable options. we got
delicious cocktails and then ordered:
the corn, asparagus, shishito peppers, fried tofu, crispy fried chicken and the salmon entree. was totally enough for 3 people. delicious!!
Thank you for your review, Rosie! Glad to hear that our side options were enjoyable and made for a well rounded experience! Can't wait to have you in again!
Omakase was very good, lots of food and the value was great. Service was too notch. Looking forward to going back!
