I live in Lake Geneva and have been to every place in the entire area. After finally eating here a few weeks ago, we left wondering why we never tried it before! Hands down the BEST staff, food, drinks. If you are looking for fine dining atmosphere with amazing food - Sopra is the place. Our new favorite restaurant! Can't wait to go back!

A friend and I stopped here for dinner on a Friday evening after just getting in to town. This is a cute little restaurant right on main street. The food was excellent--we both had pastas (I think they may have both been homemade noodles) and a glass of wine. Service was great. Highly recommend if you are in the area.

I planned a surprise get away for my wife. I spent hours on the internet reviewing restaurants and finally chose Sopra. Our server, Cheryl, was pleasant, knowledgable, accommodating and attentive. We ordered seared octopus and mussels for appetizers. We also ordered the blackened salmon (on special, I think) and the scallops with a brie cream sauce. We finished off with a piece of blueberry pie. I have been in the hospitality/hotel business for the past 35 years. I enjoyed each and every bite of every item we ordered. This doesn't happen often. I even tried to duplicate the blueberry pie two days after returning home. It just wasn't the same, but I'll keep trying or just plan another trip to Lake Geneva. I left a message on the restaurant web site for reservations. I received a call back and all of my questions were answered. They didn't miss a thing. On a total check of $125, I left a tip of $25 on my credit card and an additional $10 in cash. I enjoyed it that much! I'm going to return sometime this summer and won't need to find a great place to eat. Nice job, Sopra!

My wife and I had a very nice dinner at Sopra. The appetizers were wonderful, especially the seared octopus. I almost ordered a second one for dinner. Instead, I had the lamb shanks and my wife had seafood. We also had a veey nice wine at a reasonable price. Both dinner dishes were excellent. Dinner was not cheap, but it was excellent. I will definitely go back next time I am in Lake Geneva.

So the service was slow and no one else was even there! The food was way overpriced and so are the drinks. There is no splitting with all of the choices ( and there are not many) over $20. I would never return nor advise others to eat here, as the bartender of another place suggested. Stick to Bistro 220 or Scuttlebutts.
