Kate and I go to Roka at least once every six months and have always found it to be consistent. We’ve pretty much stopped ordering from the menu, we just get the Omakase and let the chef deliver. We have always enjoyed our meals. This trip we enjoyed fresh, raw oysters with caviar - delicious. A Diver Scallop Tartare -... More

Not well versed on restaurants like this but our waitress was outstanding in explaining the menu and making suggestions. The food was as good as it gets. Everything we had was excellent. I wish I could remember more of the names. We shared the ribeye steak which I highly recommend. It is excellent but you want to leave room for... More

This is my second review of Roka Akor. We dined her three times on our last trip to Scottsdale. The food is still wonderful, I am pleased to say. My favourite dishes are the Spicy Avocado Fried Tofu and the Miso marinated cod. These dishes are completely delicious and everything always seems completely fresh and beautifully presented. My husband always... More

Roka Akor consistently provides extraordinary service, unique dishes, and an overall amazing evening! While expensive, each dish has been perfected; every flavour complements the other and every item is always beautifully presented. I'd highly advise you to ask your server for the chef's recommendations as there are always countless items available that are not on the menu! In particular, Roka's... More

Excellent Food but simply TOO MUCH of it. It would have been perfect if the offered portions were much smaller. When the delicious Black Cod and Wagyu Beef plates arrived in our table, we were already full. Not to mention desserts. Anyway, everything was DELICIOUS, but probably the Pork Belly was the night's highlight. The Omakase Menu, although kind of... More

Roka Akor always provides an Extraordinary dining experience from the food to the atmosphere to the service. The sushi is superb as are their steaks, robata, seafood et al. There are so many delectable items on and off the menu that it is difficult to recommend a rare few that rise above?!? With this said, and worthy of special mention... More

Roma Akor, although quite expensive, has a beautiful, calm, relaxing ambiance, and fabulous food! If you don't know what to order, the staff is more than willing to help out! Portions aren't huge, but they are excellent - whatever you order. The cocktail list is really interesting...They take their craftsmanship seriously. I would highly recommend this restaurant - whether you... More

Our group reserved the private dining room for a family event. The omakase menu (chef selected) with wine and sake pairings consisted of a dozen or more courses. Each course was creatively plated, utilizing only the very best ingredients. Everyone was impressed with the food. The service, however, was another matter. Our servers did not seem to know much about... More
