Frequently Asked Questions
Are reservations required?
We don’t require reservations at Roka Akor, but they are definitely recommended to ensure you can enjoy the opportunity to dine at our fine restaurant.
What is the dress code for your restaurant and bar?
“Casually elegant” would be the best description. You don’t need a tux and a designer dress, but something a bit nicer than “business casual” works best.
How far in advance should I book a reservation for a large party or event?
The sooner, the better! Once you know you want to reserve our private dining room or private patio, call us right away to get it reserved.
Do you accommodate dietary restrictions or allergies?
Roka Akor is pleased to provide both vegetarian and vegan menus at the request of our guests, so please don’t hesitate to ask. Additionally, if there are any food allergies, dietary restrictions, or other preferences you may have, please relay that information to your server.
Is a gluten free menu available?
We do offer a gluten-free menu, along with our other menus.
How often do you change your menu?
Our signature dishes are constants which our guests enjoy on a regular basis. We also have seasonal dishes which change over the course of the year as certain fresh ingredients come into or go out of season.
Does Roka Akor offer traditional sushi, modern sushi, or both on their menu?
Our Scottsdale location carries a mixture of traditional sashimi and nigiri with more contemporary sushi offerings. Our Chicago location carries a wide variety of maki rolls both traditional and contemporary. Our Skokie location leans mostly towards contemporary offerings. Our San Francisco location offers a mix of contemporary and traditional sushi.
Is there a happy hour? Does it include both apps and drinks?
The Roka Bar just wouldn’t be the same without a happy hour. Each one of our locations keeps their own hours for happy hour, and each of them maintains their own special happy hour menus. Enjoy a Chibi Burger and a Sapporo in Scottsdale. Or try our Signature Tataki Trio with a glass of House Infused Shochu in Chicago. Nibble on some Beef and Kimchi Dumplings while experimenting with a Dealer’s Choice Cocktail in Skokie. Or settle the snappy Hamachi Serrano Chili Roll down with a Roka Mule in San Francisco.
Are there any other special events or food specials at the restaurant?
There’s always something going on at the Roka Akor location nearest you. Meal and drink specials are constantly on offer, and special events like our Christmas Eve Tasting Menu are timed perfectly for the season. All you have to do is check us out!
Do you offer a birthday or anniversary special?
Birthdays and anniversaries are important, and we can make them even more special for you. Just sign up for our newsletter and we’ll take care of the reminders.
Do you have gift cards available for purchase?
You can go to any of our four locations and pick up a gift card. Or if you’re pressed for time, you can also get them directly from our website.
Can I host a birthday dinner, wedding rehearsal dinner, corporate party, or any kind of private dining experience my heart desires at Roka Akor?
If there’s a special event that demands an extra personal touch, whether it’s a projection screen to put up an anniversary retrospective or a DJ and some security for a CD release party, Roka Akor can help make it not just a reality but a success.
Each of our locations has specific criteria, so be aware that a private party in Scottsdale will be different from one in Chicago, which will be different in Skokie, and different from one in San Francisco.
Where can I find more information about career opportunities at the Roka Akor near me?
We’re always on the lookout for talented staff who can make any of our Roka Akor locations just a bit more special. You can find more information about our current openings here.
What is Omakase?
Put simply, omakase is putting your trust in the chef. Rather than just picking something off the menu, omakase will be a mix of the familiar and the exotic, the expected and the unexpected. You will be trusting your chef to deliver a singularly unique dining experience, so sit down and get your taste buds ready!
