Better than Medusa

We visited after Labor Day and the crowds were done. We began with lobster wonton and octopus appetizers. Both were excellent. For entrees, we had the farfalle, cavatappi, and spaghetti. The portions were gigantic and the pasta was very well-prepared. Cheaper and tastier dishes than Medusa. We... read more

Our son was skiing up the road so my husband and I enjoyed a lovely evening just the two of us in downtown Lake Geneva. Sopra Bistro is lovely from the outside and just as nice on the inside! The ambience is quaint, slightly romantic, "young", and comfortable. From the moment we walked in, the hostess was welcoming and full... More

Very nice restaurant in Downtown Lake Geneva. The goat cheese appetizer is fantastic. Nice selections of beer and wine. Can seem a bit pricey until you remember where it is

Attentive service delicious food good pricing--excellent wine list. I had the scallops cooked perfectly and my wife had the duck--on the medium rare side--but delicious. Good cocktails menu and beer selections. Would return for sure.

Had an 8 pm reservation, we were a few minutes late, however table was ready for us! Server and staff were the downside, she was overly thorough with her explanation of the menu, so much that I just wanted it to end. Took 25 minutes after sitting to get drinks, which was a glass of wine and bottle of beer.... More

We had a private room upstairs. There was a LP player with a bunch of classic albums. The food was great and service top notch. We will definitely come back again soon.

Was looking for a nice restaurant and wanted to try something new. Sopra fit the bill and provided a mid-upscale dining experience. Food was good, our server Aubrey was super nice, great little spot right on the strip. We're there Sunday night so not too busy so food came out in reasonable time.

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
