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 you friends, "Let's do dinner" at Roka.

I came here for the DAT menu - overall the food was pretty good but I don't think I'd come back unless it was for the DAT menu. We were seated quickly as we made a reservation beforehand. We each chose three different courses from the menu and were pleasantly surprised that each course came out quite fast. We did have to wait a bit for dessert - which was the least impressive (maybe because I'm not a fan of chocolate cake and the other option had blackberries, which I'm allergic to). Overall, I did like this place but I didn't leave feeling impressed.

Roka Akor is a fantastic place-- great food, fantastic service and an overall fun experience. My husband and i came here as part of a HowBoutWe date. The meal (which was Omakase) included a variety of cold and hot dishes, all of which included novel approaches to classic food--from the butterfish with crispy garlic, to the unagi with a punchy, but fantastically distinct sauce. The staff was ridiculously attentive, and the manager was extremely gracious and made sure to take care of us. Also, it's worth sitting at the bar--the chef and the rest of the kitchen staff were quite fun to watch (and listen to). We'll definitely be coming back again!

Roka Akor, which is usually $$$$ but with the Dine About Town menu, it made for a great deal and meal. The upstairs of the restaurant was a brightly-lit dining experience, whereas the downstairs was more of a bar/lounge area with a classy ambiance, complete with dim lighting, candles, and modern furniture. As part of the prix fixe menu, I had the Butterfish Tataki with White Asparagus and Yuzu, which was soft and buttery with a crunchy surprise in the middle. Second course was the Prime Beef Filet with Chili Ginger Sauce that was just juicy, tender, and perfectly seasoned with a perfectly complementary dipping sauce. I picked the Yuzu and Fresh Berry Pavlova for dessert, since you really can’t go wrong with fresh berries, especially if you find something similar to a giant macaroon underneath all of it. I would definitely go back on a regular night and try everything else on their menu.

Had a delicious meal here and ordered the omakase menu. It's a bit expensive ($128 per person; minimum order 2 people per table) but we were stuffed at the end of the meal--and didn't finish everything. My favorite were the king crab, butterfish crudo, and wagyu. Service was very good and must have improved from the spotty service some early reviewers mentioned. Would definitely come back again for special occasions. Also would want to try sitting at the grill to see the chefs in action.

I came to Roka Akor for the Dine About Town Special, and I was definitely wowed. For the price of $37, you get 3 courses. Course 1: The butterfish Tataki was sublime, literally melted in my mouth like butter. The white asparagus that the butterfish was wrapped in was also sublimely crunchy. I absolutely HATE the aftertaste of regular asparagus, but this white asparagus tasted nothing like its inferior counterpart. Course 2: The Yuzo Black Cod is truly a work of art and grilled to perfection. I Ioved that it sat glistening on an understated dried leaf. Simply beautiful. Course 2 Option 2: I had a taste of my friend's choice, the prime beef fillet and was not impressed. It was a little too overcooked for medium rare, therefore a bit tough to chew on. Course 3: Warm Valrhona Chocolate Cake with sightglass espresso ice cream. Delicious but pretty standard. The only downside? Like most fine dining, portions are on the small side. Don't expect to leave with an overflowing belly.
