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

Chose Sopra for a more relaxed dinner option. Definitely the right decision. Pastas ordered were the gnocchi and the paperadelle ..gnocchi has a smoked mozzarella cream sauce that was a bit too smokey and creamy cheesey for my tastes. But the paperadelle with duck and leeks was perfect. Thanks to Aubrey giving us info on the menu choices. Ambiance was... More

From the moment we walked in, we were treated like family. We love eating at the bar. Totally enjoyed the specials. The tuna tartare app was so incredible we got another one to go for a late night snack. A wonderful experience and highlight of our night out on the town.

It didn’t knock our socks off but was good enough to make for a pleasant dining experience. On a Saturday night, it was busy and noisy and service was a bit spotty but at least friendly. Appetizers (lobster wontons and warmed olives) were ok. Pastas were the preferred entrees at our table, and they were all declared to be delicious... More

We have a love hate relationship with Sopra. Food and service, like every restaurant in this area, is uneven. This time our server was great and the food very good. Busy night, so we ended up on the second floor. But that was OK. What could be a dull room has been fixed up with some very nice paintings. So... More

Once again, this wonderful little bistro was a WINNER!!! This was our second visit there, and we loved every minute of our experience, from the staff dressed in their Halloween costumes, to our specialty bar drinks, to our extraordinary entrees and desserts. Last visit I had the martini made with Tito vodka, fresh lime juice, and a splash of ginger... More

After seeing some of the reviews here, we were looking forward to our visit. We came away underwhelmed. This is a great looking Bistro in the heart of downtown Lake Geneva. Service was average to above average, I think service staff is trying a bit hard to be European and "bistro-ish", dialing the rhetoric down just a notch would be... More

Let me start by saying my mom is a gourmet chef specializing in Italian food. Because of this I am insanely picky when it comes to all food, especially Italian. Also, let it be known, we are from Chicago where the food is simply outstanding and we had our wedding at Spiaggia (one of the best Italian restaurants in the... More
