Excellent service, great food and cocktails, very friendly staff. We had a business dinner in the private LP room. Perfect size for our group of 12; the record player was a nice touch too! My clients raved about the food, especially the mussels with truffle fries.

Wonderful restaurant in downtown Lake Geneva. I had a generous wine pour from a nice wine menu. The service was incredible. The menu was contemporary American fare. We had a salmon pasta dish and a char fish dish that were both very flavorful. Sopra had a nice classic bistro atmosphere.

Limited but adequate wine list. Bartendress described all specials beautifully and was refreshingly candid in response to questions. We shared ahi tuna tartare which was excellent, subtly complimented with sesame and cucumber. Grilled octopus was great. Cabbage salad with fingerling potatoes, onions, eggs, tomatoes, and mustard was combo I would not have thought of, but was delicious. Would like to... More

We dined here after reading positive reviews on Yelp. Luckily, we got a table upon walking in during Labor Day weekend. The food was amazing with unique flavors. We ordered the mussels prepared with coconut milk and topped off with Sriracha! The flavors were wonderful and we wanted to soak up all the juice with our bread. For the main... More

Had a great meal last night. Great wine list & menu. Best duck breast I've ever eaten and the grilled baby octopus salad is to die for. Thursdays half price bottles of wine too! Awesome!

Our family went to Sopra for dinner and it was so good that we ended up going twice during our week-long stay in Lake Geneva. The food is very good: imaginative without being strange, with very fresh ingredients. The lamb chops were truly some of the best I have had in years. The pheasant was terrific, with tasty pheasant sausage,... More

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!
