The food was excellent. Our waiter ordered the wrong drink for one in our party, which was not taken off the bill. Otherwise service was adequate. The noise level was very high. Would recommend sitting outside if there tables available.

We were excited to try this creative Japanese restaurant. The staff was wonderful with helping us to accommodate our 2 guests and when the entrees were below standard they accommodated by taking it off the bill. I ordered the glazed pork ribs and the yellowtail sashimi watercress cold plate. The ribs were as dry as I have ever tasted with a swipe of glaze and the sashimi cold plate was sliced so thin as to render the fish tasteless. The prices paid to dine at this restaurant are quite high in light of the low quality food.

Excellent food and service as usual. My son and his fiancée were in from California and they really loved it. They went out of their way and made the tempura lobster that’s my favorite even though it wasn’t a “special”. Waiter made some great recommendations like the brussel sprouts which I’m normally not a fan of but were really good.

Does not carry normal everyday pieces of nigiri sushi, they blame COVID, however they never have ika even before COVID.

Waiting at bar to be seated they continue to expect us to walk up to check on our table they do not come to bar to tell us the table is ready.

Service, ambiance, and food were something out of this world. We only had appetizers and shared between the three of us at the table which resulted in a combination of flavor and beautifully presented food. Looking forward to repeat this wonderful experience

Server was fantastic. Menu seemed limited compared to the Chicago location, and they were out of an item that we ordered so they didn’t really have what we went for.

Omakase is always an experience. This is our 6th time doing it. Love it. However, if I’m going drop $500 on a dinner of two, your best server needs to be on it. I felt kinda meh service was given. Manager also should check in at least once. He checked in with others.

Wonderful meal! Roka Akor is absolutely one of our favorite high end dining options. It is pricey, over 400.00 for two, but excellent. Service was top notch!

The food is spectacular at Roka Akor! It's as beautiful to look at as it is delicious to eat. We tried the Omakase (chef's choice) and each course was more amazing than the last. The service is outstanding - friendly, helpful with menu and food explanations. We enjoyed a few raw fish courses, cooked fish (Chilean sea bass was so fantastic - we'll go back for just that), Tempura lobster!!!, Wagyu, eggplant (which I discovered that I DO like!), peppers, and a delicious dessert! Can't wait to go back!

Have came here so far 3 times for the omakase tasting menu and its worth every dollar, I had the $500 tasting menu at nobu which was terrible and Roka Akor Is just amazing and is such a good price, nobu should take notes from Roka Akor.

First time here. Wanted to catch up with a friend and were looking into going to a Sushi Bar. When I searched sushi bars this place came up. When you got to the restaurant we were told they were mostly known for their steak. Although it wasn’t what we wanted, we were very pleased with the plates we had. The customer service was excellent as well! Great experience.

The food and service is excellent. They are however not following covid protocols per Scottsdale mandate. Bartender not washing her hands after touching a customers phone, no enforcement of masks in the restaurant.
