Sopra deserves a visit.

Nice quaint little place. The food was very good. The waitress made a mistake with our bill. We were splitting it in half somehow is was all put on my credit card.

Food: I was lucky enough to have one of the best dishes I've had in a long time. I had the squid ink linguine, with lobster and pork mixed with a thai coconut curry sauce. Best of both worlds for me - Italian & Thai. The lobster wasn't fish at all, I believe that it had to be fresh. They... More

Make reservations or you won't get in, they are very busy. We had reservations and were sat right away. The menu is an eclectic mix from around the world. We went on Thursday an it was 1/2 price bottles of wine. It took long for the first course to come out, but it was worth the wait as the food... More

I cannot say how delicious all of our food was. We (2 couples) had two apps, and our four entrees. Everything was so wonderful it will be a memberships meal for a long time. However, I felt underserved by the wait staff. We never received bread and butter as the other tables did and the service to check on us... More

Chef will not make substitutions or eliminate any items (i.e., I didn't want capers included) on any menu item on weekends.I had a very difficult time making decision because there was something I didn't like on almost every item. I looked at menu ahead of time online before I made reservation and it was different than one in restaurant. We... 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

Hubble loved the scallops and my salmon was amazing. Service was excellent. Definitely would recommend this spot and its not your typical touristy place.

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 excellent. You won't be disappointed BUT be sure to make reservations or you... 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.
