Los Angeles Meets San Francisco. Felt like I was in West Hollywood. If software engineers had agents, they would meet here. Roka Akor pushes out a hip vibe. There's an underground lounge (fancy term for basement bar). Good place if you have to wait for your table. Drinks and food is pricey, but well prepared. I came here for Dine About Town, and probably the best value Dine About Town menu I have seen. Dine about Town gets you 3 dishes for $39. And two of the Roka Akor dishes alone were over $39. Overall I recommend the restaurant, but probably more for Dine About Town. Tell your friends, "Let's do dinner" at Roka.

One of my new favorite restaurants in SF. I came for Restaurant Week, and for a mere $40, you get a mouth-watering 3-course meal. I have heard rave reviews about their butterfish tataki as well as their hamachi sashimi, so my friends and I ordered 1 of each. The butterfish was so buttery and smooth. I still dream about that dish. Next we ordered both of the second course offerings, black cod and wagyu. Both were cooked to perfection and the flavors were amazing. Lastly, we got the cream puffs for dessert. All in all, it was an amazing meal and I can't wait to go back!

I've enjoyed Roka Akor's Dine About Town menus and their Sunday night happy hour ($1 oysters!). The price points for the regular dinner menu may be too high though.

If you are coming for the sushi, beware, there are only about 6 options of maki rolls. Nice restaurant meant for people who like pretentious sushi. Waiter also forgot to place one of our orders so we had to wait about 15 minutes longer.

Quick escape to avoid working-lunch turned out in a great surprise. Pricey? Yes, but worth it. From the spicy edamame to the last piece of Uni everything tasted great. Highly recommended if you're into "modern Japanese" ?

I haven't had a chance to sit down and eat here yet but I love the quick service every time I order to pick up or I just order at the register. It is usually ready within 5-7 minutes. This makes it one of the most convenient and healthy places to eat inside Tyson's corner mall. In addition, the prices are super cheap. One roll, which usually consists of 6 pieces or 4 big pieces, costs less than $6 which is wonderful for any snack or meal!

Trendy Japanese restaurant and bar in the Fidi district with cool underground bar/lounge. To caveat, I came with a vendor but the food and service was amazing. They execute perfectly only what Pabu tries to get right. Wagyu 'sushi' and bone marrow very, very tasting. Impressive presentation of sushi and sashimi platters!. Would definitely go back!

Review based on just happy hour: For happy hour this place is great!! There's a selection of cocktails along with beer and wine that is discounted. The butterfish tataki is to die for. Truffle fries were a good salty treat with the cocktails. It gets very busy, but the bartenders were quick! Affordable option if you were looking to dine here and just wanted to sample the menu =)

Mouthwatering and rich; Roka Akor's Signature Alaskan Black Cod. Yuzu Miso marinated, grilled to perfection on our Robata. Plated on a Japanese Magnolia leave with Yusu Miso sauce for dipping and pickled red onion to cleanse your palate. Do we need to say more? Try it tonight with a great bottle of sake or a crisp glass of wine.

Death by chocolate anyone? NO? Okay, then how about just a mouth-watering dessert platter or our signature Warm Valhrona Chocolate Cake - life as you know will never be the same.

What's one of our favorite things on the menu? Our lightly seared beef tataki, with shaved black truffle and truffle jus.
