Great Food but.....

Made a reservation for Sopra last night for a dinner for my wife's birthday. I used open table for the reservation and when we checked in the hostess confirmed that we were celebrating her birthday. She then seated us in the absolute worst table in the restaurant. About 36 inches from the end of... read more

Had early diner with my family there ...the food offered was excellent ...food variety is good ..we tried lamb, salamon, beef steak ...all were up to expectations.... They also offer creative appetizers . Plate size is medium. I guess it's one of the best quality diners in lake Geneva city center who offer sophisticated menu. Would recommend it for couples...

This was our second visit to Sopra and it was just as good as the first. Chef is extremely creative and our waitress, Cheryl, was great at explaining the appetizers and entrees in detail. We'll be back!

We ate here at the recommendation of several locals. The reviews online were mixed, so I wasn't sure if we would enjoy it, but we did! The food was fantastic - I had the salmon, and my husband had the lamb pasta. We both loved what we ordered! The restaurant was empty except for us (off season, on a Monday),... More

A wonderful dinner entertaining new clients. It's been a few years since I was in Lake Geneva. Sopra Bistro was even better than my first visit.

A little bit of city slick in a Wisconsin lake town, we enjoy the sophistication of menu and atmosphere at Sopra. Yummy food, and a nice change from the town bar and burger scene.

Caesar salad made with kale.....I don't think so. Pasta selection congealed when served. The noise level in the restaurant has been much improved. Now work on the food quality.

My wife and I live in Lake Geneva and we've made it a tradition to spend our New Year evening at Sopra. But after last night that tradition has come to an end, the restaurant wasn't even that busy, but don't tell the bartender because she only acknowledged us once and was too busy giving herself shots while ignoring us...

My wife & I dine at SOPRA about once a month. We are always happy with the quality of service and the receptive service. Many of Lake Geneva's finest frequent this higher end restaurant. You will not be disappointed with any of the apps or entrees! If you do not see truffle fries on the menu - ask for some... More

Sopra is located right on Main Street (Highway 50) in downtown Lake Geneva. The food is much better than the casual storefront ambiance might indicate from the street but is a bit pricey based on its prime in town location. We particularly enjoyed the fried goat cheese appetizer and the scallops with brie cream entree.
