Excellent restaurant, but very expensive dinner! The service from start to finish was given to us with the utmost care. The food was absolutely wonderful in terms of presentation and taste! For a family birthday celebration, the bill was very expensive for the amount of food served.

Awesome food, as usual! Sat at the counter for the first time which I would highly recommend although it was a 40 degree evening and we faced a continual and very cold draught from the door which did detract somewhat from the experience

Roka Akor is without comparison in Arizona, perhaps even west of the Rockies. It's sheer opulence and every aspect of this restaurant is unique and appealing. The atmosphere is wide open and airy, the service I received was prompt, courteous and very well versed in the menu as well as libations.

My intent was to enjoy a steak and some some sushi, and in both regards I was please most completely. The sushi was beyond fresh and prepared masterfully, the Wagyu steak was stunning, a very small portion as it's sold by the ounce, and frankly best enjoyed that way. The steak was subtly seasoned and so tender it nearly dissolved in my mouth.

A terrific night out and an enormous dining experience.

The restaurant is a fast food chain operation disguised as an upscale Japanese venue. Their sushi counter is fake. They serve precut flash frozen tasteless sushi. It was terrible.

Came here for an anniversary dinner and was very disappointed. Made a reservation days in advance... when we arrived the place was almost completely empty and they sat us at the smallest, worst table in the place. Also, no anniversary dessert which I thought was odd especially when you drop hundreds for an anniversary dinner. Food was delicious, but I definitely don’t recommend coming here for a special occasion.

Food is very good. Our waiter was very personable and knowledgeable.
I just don't love the barn-like atmosphere, lack of tablecloths, lack of privacy, warmth, intimacy for the $$$ you are paying.
Wine prices are steep, 2-$4 more per glass for the same wine served at neighboring restaurants.
Portions are small and I feel prices are outrageous for portion sizes.
Just need The Ocean Club, Capital Grille or Dominick's type environment and level of service at this price point.

Very nice restaurant with amazing food and staff. Appetizers were well priced. The food is on a pricier side, so I would recommend it for a special occasion. I liked that it had different options from seafood, to sushi, and steak. The side my husband and I shared was the brussle sprouts and they were amazing. Overall great experience, only it was a bit on the louder side, but we could still hear each other.

Went here for the first time with my cousin and both had the omakase. We had a wonderful experience. There was plenty to eat and I really enjoyed my meals. I felt I should have paired it with wine to bring out the full flavors. But overall, everything was fresh, the poke and the wagyu was amazing. At the end they bring you this huge dessert it was just soooo good. Our server was professional, educated, and provided excellent service. Great price, a little loud inside, but I will definitely be back again.
