Good Restaurant Right on Main Street in Downtown Lake Geneva

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... read 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.

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

The food was excellent!! The staff rushed us out. Please put a closing time on your door instead of listing the closed time as "until closing". I get that the area is somewhat seasonal, however put a time in or do not accept walk ins after a certain time. It was only 9:00 pm on Saturday of Holiday Weekend and... More

We went on a Sunday when many places were closed. They were welcoming. Our waiter was very good on checking which dishes contained garlic, which I can't eat. The duck was very good and cooked just right to my specifications. My husband had salmon, which he enjoyed very much.

We dined here on November 15th (off season). Arrived (without reservations) at 5:10 (they open at 5pm). They asked if we had reservations (there was NO ONE in the place). We were told to wait at the bar while they decided if they could accommodate us. We sat for about 5 minutes and then they seated us at a small... More

Our 25th anniversary was spent in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin. While we've been here several times we've never stayed more than an afternoon. We hadn't really found any place we'd love to go back to and eat at again until this trip. We had passed this place and thought it looked interesting and then we asked the hotel for recommendation and... More

Great food and good service. A little more expensive than we expected but that's on us for not checking first. About 20-30 per entree. We had a few accidental bones in one of our meals and our waitress was so responsive, not dismissive. She even took if off our bill.
