Roka Akor - Chicago
Shrimp and Lobster Dumplings
Sashimi Chef Selection
Amazing food and experience as always! Sad to see the manager who took such great care of me has been moved to another location. Service and food excellent. Even outdoor dining was super nice enjoyable and spaced out perfectly during these awful times. Thanks!
Always the best service and so friendly. From the manager Ben, to the bartenders Jorge and Elaine. Great waiter forgot his name have had him several times, but so friendly and explains everything perfect. Always an amazing experience. Food is always consistent. Feels like home even at their busiest nights. Keep it up Roka Group! 🥰
Wonderful food, service and drinks! Definitely will be coming back again!
Wonderful food and people!
I was very impressed with the quality of food and the service on our visit. Great job. I highly recommend based on our experience.
We had an amazing evening at Roka Akor celebrating our anniversary. It was our second time celebrating there, and our first time during Covid. Everything exceeded our expectations from the complimentary champagne that greeted us when we sat down, to the attentive staff and all the precautions they had in place to make their guests feel comfortable. The tasting menu was delicious and also exceeded our expectation in terms of quality, quantity and overall presentation.
Great, attentive service. Servers very knowledgeable of menu items.
One of our favorite restaurants in Chicago not to be missed.
It used to be one of our favorite places but this time the food quality and taste was not outstanding as always. Service was alright.
Our Third time here!! We love it. Our server is Faviola is the best. She gives us the best food recommendation along with our favorite mocktails! Can’t wait to return.
Second time here. Food is outstanding. Fabiola helped us both times and is fantastic. Some favorites are the shrimp and lobster dumplings, the Serrano roll, and the filet that is perfectly cooked and cut for you.
Sat outside on the patio, however felt that the tables were too close to one another. I didn’t feel comfortable after more people started to sit around us.
I also appreciate the walk-in restrooms, without having to hold door handles. It was very clean, however, the hand sanitizer was awful and isn’t necessary in the restroom where soap is available, and hand washing is a better option.
Our server was great, but it was a bit hard to hear what she was saying behind her mask. We were given a delicious ceviche while we were waiting. Cocktails are decent, some were rather strong. The crispy tuna appetizer was amazing, sea bass and brussel sprouts were very tasty. We also received an after dinner Prosecco which was a nice gesture.
This is my second time at Roka Akor, and will definitely be returning.
Food was excellent, tried almost everything on the menu and it was fantastic. David was a great server for the experience as well.
Excellent service by Guy and a great foodie experience with the Decadence menu of chef’s choices for the celebration of a 28th birthday of one of our children. A true food and drink lovers’ delight. Thank you Roka Akor!
Jorge is the best!!
Wonderful food, drinks and atmosphere!
Server was very attentive.
pretty good place to hav Japanese food
will go thr again
I have been a huge fan of Roka Akor over the years. Decided to try dinner out downtown for the first time with everything going on. We all ordered the Decadent tasting menu.
This is the first time service has been an issue at Roka. They started off too fast - bringing the first few dishes one after the other where there was no time to eat the first few courses. This isn't the end of the world, but the first 3 dishes piled up on the table. Then it slowed to a reasonable pace until sorbet. After that, we could not get service. The last two dishes and dessert look an hour longer than needed. They were breaking down more than serving. We asked about each course multiple times. For the tasting menu - the masks and acoustics make it almost impossible to hear what the server is describing (not their fault - just making note).
The food started off strong. Seafood apps and Nigari/Sashimi were wonderful. Scallops were solid. It trended downhill after that. The tofu/mushroom dish was inedible (to me). Seafood was ok - but not especially flavorful. Steak was over spiced which overpowered the quality meat I wanted to taste. Dessert was fine.
As for ambiance, River North is strange right now. Cars and motorcycles going around the block, blasting engines and radios, peeling out. Couples loudly fighting, selfie taking Kardashian wannabe's, tough guys, etc. The mix of older professional, young professional, tourist, city, and suburban folks have been replaced by all young city. This is obviously no Roka's fault - but it is something to note when making plans in the area in the next few weeks.
Roka has built up credibility with me over the years - so hopefully the service and food were just speed bumps in them opening back up.
Great waiter! Love eating out in the street.
i am very pleased with my experience and our server was very accomodating and helpful. its a pity i forgot his name, but he was great! Me and my friends are definitely coming back soon.
Good food, great ambiance and professional service. I left my credit card behind by mistake and they called me to let me know they had it with them and to come pick it up. Good experience overall.
Excellent food and great service outside. Always one of my favorite places in Chicago
Loved it! Both food and service was outstanding! Will definitely come back!
Such good sushi and drinks and the people who work there are super attentive professional and helpful.
Amazing service and food
Our server was amazing. I love the food and ambiance here!
The food was better than even expected. Portion sizes were surprisingly large and everything was delicious! Seared salmon roll was the star. The rice bowl was good but not worth the price for the truffle, the regular would’ve been just as good - and I love truffle. Next time, we’d get the regular rice pot instead.
Really delicious food and drinks. Lovely evening with family!!
Only received 3/5 items we ordered after nearly 2 hour dinner. Staff was somewhat indifferent.
Update - manager reached out directly and resolved issue.
The food honestly sucked and the waitress charged me for the wrong meal but other than that it was a good experience
Very nice and friendly service was great people that works there was very nice great food
Food and Service was great. The ambience isn’t particularly intimate for a couples special night out. But the food made up for it....
Two words sum it up........DINING PERFECTION!!
Wonderful evening, zero complaints. Always a consistently delicious experience
Great place for a special night out. Open air tables !
Always great food and great service!! We will return!
