Fabulous place! The staff (Kenny/Olivia)is awesome, so knowledgeable about the food they serve & their service is excellent! Allow the chefs to treat you with their Omakase. Each dish beautifully prepared and wonderful. They will not disappoint. We come here every time we are in Arizona.
Had a wonderful dinner. Our table opted for the chefs tasting menu. Wonderful dishes, great presentation and our waiter Wesley was fantastic!
We dine here once/month and have never had a bad meal. This is our favorite restaurant!
Fabulous hamachi nigiri and sushi rolls. Our server, Heather, was fabulous. Made you feel like you were a guest in her home. She anticipated needs before we said anything. Her sushi roll recommendations was spot on. We’ve had wonderful sushi in Cabo & San Fran & this ranks as good or better. We sat at the raw bar & watching the chefs was entertaining & they were charming as well.
Food was great but it is so loud in the restaurant that a conversation can barely be carried on at the table.
My husband and I come here every time we are in Scottsdale. Love the food and the staff.
Best service ever and the steak was fabulous!!!! Thanks for the special treatment,
Food was good, but they tried to talk us out of coming at 8:45? Expensive and small portions. They weren't that busy.
Miso soup very salty. Soy sauce very salty. I should have asked for low sodium but have not had to do that at other restaurants. With reservation was given a table in the middle even though plenty of tables better located were open. Shusi was excellent but would not go again since they were out of Shapiro beer and service was average.
Excellent over all, but don't expect dessert to knock your socks off. My wife and I chose to "omakase" or "entrust the chef" and were not disappointed. Fantastic lobster tempura and pork belly were our high points.
This is one of our favorites. Best brussel sprouts ever tasted. Tiger prawn chilean sea bass mussels calamari delish!!!
Overall good food, but not spectacular. The sushi is very amateurish (the wasabi is supposed to be a subtle taste not a dollop that burns). Overpriced.
Everything was 5star! Brad was one of the most knowledgeable and fun servers I’ve had the pleasure to meet!
Salmon was outstanding. Did not care for the strip steak, very fatty. Edemame and miso soup good but very small portions. Good attentive waiter. They neglected to tell us food came out as prepared so our sides came out at least 5 min before the entree. Also, the entrees for 4 of us came out at different times. I did love the roasted corn side. The whole dinner was pricey.
We thoroughly enjoyed our great food!!! My husband had the ribs and said they were the best ha had ever eaten! I had the salmon , delicious! My son and daughter - in - law also were very impressed wit the saki and their dinners! We will be back soon!
Our first time at this restaurant and it’s rating did not disappoint. Food was outstanding!
The young lady who took care of us was as good as the food......excellent service!!!!
Will return a great place to dine
Overpriced but atmosphere made up for it.
Amazing! Fresh food.. prepared well! Service and knowledge was so helpful! A treat!
Wonderful experience at Roka Akor. Every food item was delicious, from the Miso Soup and Tofu Appetizer, to the sea bass, cod, and filet, to the sushi and vegetable sides. We loved the mushroom hot pot! The wine list has a lot of variety at broad price points, and everyone particularly enjoyed their cocktails. Also a large selection of Japanese whiskey. Service was virtually perfect- well timed and attentive without being overwhelming. There was a big group seated next to us and the noise from their party detracted slightly from our experience, yet the tables are far enough apart that we were able to have conversation. I had not been to Roka Akor for a while and was very happy with the experience.
A most outstanding experience! The food was unbelievably good and the service was excellent! Definitely a special occasion place. Will go back!
Fantastic food, fantastic experience. Some unique dishes and delicious sushi classics. Waitstaff was so fun and personable.
Excellent Food, Excellent Service, Excellent Ambiance
Amazing dinning experience. We had a party of 7 and could talk to everyone. The food exceeded our expectations - the steak and sushi rolls were excellent. Heading back soon.
They forgot this was a special occasion. Nobody from the staff mentioned it.
Incredible service and the food was phenomenal. By far the best dining experience we’ve had.
Honestly just felt restaurant was understaffed. Every table was occupied & as good as our server was the wait on everything took much longer than usual.
The food was absolutely exceptional. It was really loud and hard to have a conversation with one of the elderly people in our party, but the meal was amazing that we talked about it all the way home and into the next day!
The steak was probably the best steak I’ve ever had. We also had the sushi which was also pretty amazing.
Didn't enjoy our waiter, Ken. He had an unpleasant air about him. Seemed put out. We visit Roma Akor 3 to 4 times a month, and have not experienced any server like him before. The food was exceptional.
Food was delicious. The butterfish appetizer was beautiful and yummy. The miso cod was tender and delicious. The vegetable tempura was beautifully presented and a nice assortment. We had the green tea tart with green tea ice cream which was okay. Probably wouldn't order that again. Would definitely get the first three dishes again. Service was excellent!
The food is some of the best in town. The misconception is that it is a Sushi place.
Oh they have ok sushi and sashimi, but other dishes steal the show.
Check it out.
It gets better each time!
We went to Roka Akor after receiving a gift card. What a wonderful experience!
Not being a japanese steakhouse expert, the menu looked pretty...foreign. We were as a bit of a loss on what to order. Our server was excellent, and asked what our budget was and said he would just order a good cross section of food to try.
Course 1: Butterfish Tataki with white asparagus and yuzu
Course 2: Hamachi (yellowtail) serrano chili roll
Course 3: Pork belly with marinated gold beets and maple verjus
Course 4: Prime beef kimchi dumplings
Main courses: Yuzu miso marinated Black cod with pickled red onion and 8oz filet minon with chili ginger sauce
To say we left satisfied is an understatement. This place deserves the award of best AZ steakhouse.
First time visit so we arrived early to have a drink before dinner reservations. Was told we would be seated right away since we arrived so early, but unfortunately we waited another 20 min for our table. A bit disappointing because the food was outstanding and there signature drinks right on the money.
Went for Valentine's Day dinner after 8pm. It's a large space with a sushi bar, robota grill, drinks bar and seating. The robata/sushi bar is fun. There was actually a long queue of about 10 people waiting for tables in a line at reception. Hostess said to wait for the table. Told them I would wait and order a drink at the drinks bar. I think the staff were stressed from the Valentine's rush. Why people line up at a fine restaurant I'll never understand; it's more common to suggest to customers waiting for their table to go to the drinks bar and have a drink. Our waiter was really nice, enthusiastic and made great suggestions. I did not have the tasting menu, The sushi bar (because it was a special menu night for Valentine's) only offered portions of "chef's choice" of nigiri or sashimi (did they mean omakase?) so can't comment on the sushi bar. They offered some beautiful oysters arranged in a bowl. The sashimi was good and nicely arranged, too. Must say the robata items like the steak and tiger shrimp are excellent. You have to try the robata grill items. And fabulous deserts. The Valrhona chocolate cake is fantastic.
Ordered the Valentines set menu. Very uneven service. They forgot our main course (the beef) and when it finally arrived it was bloody rare. Very disappointing.
Best time to come is happy hour! The bar staff make great company along with giving great menu advice.
Great service, great food. First time here, we loved it!! The tuna flight was awesome.
We were right on time for our reservation and had to wait on a Tuesday. There are some crazy expensive options and the place is very loud.
Came in for 2 birthdays...never acknowledged it...even though they asked at reservation...Forgot to bring 2 of our sides dishes and when we asked for them we got them about 12 minutes later… we had already finished our entrées… They did take one of them off the bill only when we asked… And really no attempt to make up for it… This is a high-end place so you expect high and service… It was only meh
