Roka, kind of a Japanese fusion steak and seafood/sushi cuisine has a very cool atmosphere — although it gets loud and can be hard to hear your table mates - and the food is excellent. The quality is VERY high end and goes with the high prices. For an entree, side dish and glass of wine, you’re looking at at least $125 for two people. But if you’re looking for a special dinner, Roka is a great choice. I had the ribeye steak, which was prepared and tasted amazing. I recommend the cauliflower side dish to go with this one. Great flavor and tasted great — and I’m not a huge cauliflower fan. Enjoy!

Omakase was fantastic. Everything was fresh and flavorful. Dessert platter was a nice surprise. Too bad I was too full to eat much of it.
Service was top notch. Our server, James was extremely polite and knowledgeable.

Came here to celebrate my boyfriend getting into med school. Had a bottle of champagne and some amazing food. The whole dinner was out of this world, including the lamb chops and bone marrow, which we felt were the highlights. Our server was amazing! And it is an open kitchen which made it especially fun because we could watch our food being prepared! The line cooks looked like some badass people who would be ready to throw it down, but instead they threw it down with elegant plating and great finesse.

Best sushi and fusion in San Francisco. Roka is comparable to Nobu and marimoto's. Tony and his staff are amazing. The service is impeccable and the food is absolutely delicious and very creative. The new mussel dish is amazing.

Food was really good! However our particular server seemed very annoyed with our group. He rarely came by and pretended not to hear us. The other busboys/servers jumped in to help when we needed. Food was good but small portions. I would go again as long I didn’t sit in that guys area

So good!! This was our second time and was just as great as the first. We sat up to kitchen bar, which is great because you get to watch a live cooking show. We did the omakase, which I highly recommend. So much food and a bit of everything from seafood to steak. Very worth it. I love this place

Had a wonderful dinner last night at Roka Akor. Booked a reservation with my wife for her birthday dinner, and it was such a great experience. The ambiance is lovely, menu options are great (our choices were delectable including the sake and whiskey) and our server, Erik, was excellent; very personable and charming. I'll be back pretty soon. Thank you.

When we arrived we were greeted by 3 friendly hosts. We went down to the bar to grab a drink before sitting at our table. Our table was alreday ready for us but we arrived early so we'd have time for a cocktail downstairs.

Once seated we weren't very happy. It was one of our colder nights in SF and we were seated at a 2 top right by some blasting air conditioning. Not only that, but we got put behind a wall out of view of the kitchen which is a huge appeal about dining at Roka. We asked to move and they kindly obliged. From there our experience was great.
