We met friends here on a Friday nite. Before going, you should go on line to look at the menu which is well balanced between Italian and fine American cuisine. We shared a raw ahi tuna and a baby octopus starter.....they were terrific, especially the tuna which had been marinated in some kind of hot sauce. Two of us had... More

Our business team went to Sopra last week during an annual meeting. We found the wine menu eclectic and exceptional. I had the Penne with duck meat..... Wow it was favorable and the plate most generous. Highly recommend Sopra for an upscale bistro in downtown Lake Geneva. It was an unexpected pleasurable dining experience.

Our waitress was wonderful! Great service and great food--pasta was a bit pricey, but it was a large portion and tasted very good! Nice outdoor seating area too!

Best food in Lake Geneva and rivals any top restaurant. My wife is total foodie and we both noticed the subtle ingredients and careful preparation. She had the duck and I had the lamb chops with kalamata olive topanade mashed potato and spinach. I started with the beet salad and a glass of Cabernet. We were full but had to... More

Kale Cesar salad? "Chopped Up" salad which isn't a chopped salad? Avocado Cucumber soup which wasn't soup. The items on the menu sounded good and interesting but the reality didn't meet expectations. The soup was bland, oily, and was puréed to the consistency of dip. The kale Cesar was just bitter and wrong. The pastas were the bright side as... More

Best upscale restaurant in the heart of Lake Geneva. Has a sound problem if you are sensitive and outdoor dining on the sidewalk in the summer time

We were in Lake Geneva for the Memorial Day weekend. After watching the Blackhawks game at a local sports bar in downtown Lake Geneva, we walked to Sopra for dinner. We arrived around 9:15 pm. There were still a number of people seated at tables & at the bar. So there was still a good amount of "energy". This was... More
