Description: Our menu features prime cut steaks, seafood, and vegetables with unique Japanese-inspired marinades and sauces, along with sushi, sashimi, tempura, and extraordinary desserts. The menu changes regularly to reflect seasonal offerings. Roka Akor Scottsdale offers the unparalleled combination of thoughtful design and contemporary Robata Japanese cuisine. The restaurant’s name is derived from two words: RO and KA. The meaning of the first word is hearth, a gathering place where people socialize and take in the ambience; the latter stands for a burning fire and projecting energy. Roka Akor’s contemporary main dining room provides a stunning backdrop and the centrally located robata grill is the heart of the visual experience. To accommodate all guests needs, Roka Akor Scottsdale also offers a private dining room, private patio and Roka Bar.

It's a must - delicious! One of the best dishes I have had. Also enjoyed the butterfly-asparagus, brussels sprouts, hamachi with serrano peppers dishes. The dessert, warm chocolate cake with toffee, was also good. Best meal we had in our short stay in Scottsdale.

A lovely spacious restaurant. Lots of free parking. I had the lamb cutlets -- outstanding. My husband reported that the Saigon chicken was very good as well. The best item was the Brussels sprouts -- my husband hates Brussels sprouts but pronounced these very good -- definitely worth a try.

We let our server do the picking for appetizers and main courses and were not disappointed. After a few questions about our likes and dislikes, she brought something for everyone to enjoy. The tempura was great, as were the scallops and prawn apps. The cod was a crowd pleaser and the ny strip was fabulous - all sliced beautifully for sharing. Dessert was also good and a great time had by all. The atmosphere was very pleasant and we would likely go back when in the area.

I finally got to mark this one off of my wish list! The food was fantastic!! But it does not come cheap. This is definitely, for us, a special occasion restaurant only. And it even feels that way when you walk in. The restaurant is simply beautiful, the service is top-notch. If you don't mind putting down a little cash, it's a great place to go.
