Definitely a great addition Lake Geneva

Lake Geneva needed another classy dining experience. Great food. Nice selection of wines both by the glass and bottle. Wonderful beet salad. Every fish dish I've ever had was expertly prepared. Desserts are satisfying but nothing really stood out. We've had multiple meat dishes and all were... read more

For the 10th anniversary of our engagement, we had a wonderful meal at Sopra Bistro. Drinks, apps, pasta and entrees were all exquisitely delicious.

Went on recommendation of TA, food was ok, but reasonably sure salmon never seen Europe, let alone Scotland. The lamb from New Zealand.........must have run all the way ! USD 140.-- check, no problem, but USD 10.-- for a small portion of pasta (house pasta, nothing special) for a 4 year old child..............yeah right on ! Not worth it in... More

This is where Scuttlebutts used to be and they have what looks like a good breakfast menu, but limited for dinner. However, they have wood-fire pizzas that are fantastic. If you are tired of the "pizza places" around town, give this one a try.

Little cozy restaurant, slightly understaffed for the 4th weekend, yet the food and service were very comforting. Great pasta, wines and friendly staff. Hostess took a reservation, got us in right on time and made for a great evening.

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 the bar where all the waitstaff... 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
