If you enjoy a fine glass of wine (purchase a bottle for half price) with your dinner, Thursday evening is the night to dine at Sopra's American Bistro!!! We will see you there!

The tables are small and too close to each other. Always annoying when the tables next to you are so close that you can hear their entire conversation! The restaurant is small. The menu is limited. I had a whole rainbow trout that was good but a very small fish. The cream of artichoke soup was bland. My wife's 1... More

Sopra's is a local favorite of ours. It's small town appeal, with charm and excellent service, will be shadowed by the culinary creativity that chef creates! Fresh vegs and herbs, a drizzle of oil, Wow. Wines and libations to compliment every course. Go, try, be amazed!

We were recommended to try this local gourmet Bistro , while staying at Lake Lawn Manor. We had great service from both RACHEL and CHERYL. We started with melted Brie and beet and goat cheese salads followed by the salmon and fantastic pasta that should have been called arbiatta. If you are ever close do drop in to this Bistro... More

Had dinner here one evening. Made a reservation since it was a Saturday night and they were quite busy. Were seated within a few minutes. The burrata with asparagus was amazing. Also had the summer gnocchi with a light lemon/olive oil sauce, tomatoes, peas, and artichokes. It was light and lovely.

The waitress was friendly and we sat outside on a nice evening for dinner, but we all thought the food was average and very overpriced. We had warm olives(strange) and a salad for appetizers. Two of us had salmon which was served upside down with the skin on top of the salmon. One person ordered the scallops which was almost... More

We ordered the mussels and were extremely disappointed. The waitress said the broth was coconut milk which sounded yummy but what she failed to tell us that there were serrano peppers and hot sauce on top. Those flavors totally ruined the subtle mussel flavor. An extremely disappointing meal. The bread was very good!

The atmosphere was fun and some imagination behind the menu. I would recommend the tuna tartare, beet salad, and ginger Manhattan.

We have been here many times and it is always a treat. The menu is ever changing with fresh daily specials. Service is friendly. Parking may be tricky and reservations are recommended. Our go-Toltec!

Because Sopra isn't on the beautiful lakeside, it's easy to walk past. I'd suggest you don't! The food and service were excellent and of a higher quality than we had elsewhere on Lake Geneva. Good cocktails and they know their wine too! It doesn't 'feel' family friendly particularly (no kids menu) but they were able to recommend simpler dishes for... More
