My wife and I had the Omakase for our anniversary. The meal was good with exceptional presentation. Everything was delicious and was plenty of food. With that said, we would’ve appreciated a little more sushi like nigiri as part of the Omakase. The wagyu need to finish off the meal was not the best in my opinion. The meat had too much of the bark/smoke flavor. Quality Wagyu should be able stand on basic flavor alone. Overall it was a good meal, but for $128/person, we may consider other options on the menu. The sashimi, oyster, and crab legs were fresh and top notch. We loved the ambiance and service as well.

Excellent quality food from miso soup through sashimi then sushi and the entrees - black cod and crab. Desserts excellent too.
Service was very good and ambience was too, given the current situation.
Minor, minor comment would be that the brocollini had too strong a wood smoke flavor which didn’t let the other ingredients come through, but I’m really picking at minor details.
Highly recommended

Great place for a date night. We ordered a few of the different sushi items and everything we got was perfection. Fresh, melt-in-your-mouth flavor. Service was outstanding as well.

I took my mom back to this restaurant after 3 years and we were very disappointed. The service was mediocre and the food doesn't worth the price tag. They served us a bowl of completely burned Brussel Sprouts, unacceptable with the price they are charging us!!!! We won't be returning, it has completely lose its good taste in food and service!!

The 4 items that we ordered were excellent as was the service. The Tempura, the mushroom hotpot, the ribs and the salmon were all excellent and beautifully prepared and presented. Roka Akor is one of our two all time favorite restaurants.

Absolutely enjoyed a nice pleasant and professional dining experience! My first time here so I wanted to experience all Roka Akor had to offer annddd my host suggested their 6-7 diner course selection. A little on the pricey side if you choose this route, but I will say it was well worth it.

Excellent quality of a fusion Japanese Omakaze dinner. The service was very good, and the quantity was more than we expected. I will definitely return for future dinner dates.

Definitely a special place to go out to eat. Yes the prices can seem scary on the menu but trust me it’s worth it. Our server (Marcus) was able to perfectly describe everything on the menu and was so friendly without seeming forced to be or fake in the slightest. This is not only a place to eat but a place to have an experience as well. All of the flavors and presentation is beautiful and that is simply an understatement.

It was a sad experience. Went in for dinner specifically for sushi. Got seated by the manager who failed to let us know, there is no rice. When the waitress came to take our drink order, she informed us about there being no rice, a couple next to us were also told no rice. We all left! A sushi and steak restaurant with no rice! Lots of workers and no customers. Sad!

Second reservation of the day, and they were out of rice. As in like, they couldn't make sushi at a sushi restaurant. Was looking forward to this place the whole trip. Make a reservation if you wanna get PLAYED.

Unreal service. So so great! The butterfish and pork belly appetizers were unreal! Everything else was great but not special. Little pricey. $170 for two people with no alcohol. Little noisy but it was a Saturday night. Super cute spot.
