We haven't been here in years. One of reasons we always stayed at Grand Geneva is because restaurants were better than downtown LG. So glad we came! The food was delish ~ my 12 year old enjoyed the lobster wontons. The octopus was a little tough but the scallops and wagyu steak were great! No longer any reason to go... More

Went here for dinner on a recommendation from SevenOaks Bed & Breakfast. The tip I got also included that the pasta dishes are very large, so they suggested getting an appetizer and sharing a pasta. This was a perfect idea. We had the grilled baby octopus which was quite good. And we shared a pasta. It happened to be one... More

My husband and I had our anniversary dinner at Sopra this past week. We loved it! Austin, our bartender, made me one of the BEST drinks I have ever had (the POM beach martini). It was DELICIOUS! We started with the Merguez appetizer (which I had never heard of before), and it was SO GOOD! It's a lamb sausage and... More

Lake Geneva is filled with fine restaurants from Hill Top mansions, to arboreta on the lake with a view but Sopra Bistro in a store-front is in a class by itself as a creative, fresh, and delightful place to dine with just the best Italian food in miles. Gordon Ramsey is always challenging his chefs to cook with passion. Here's... More

Had a lovely meal early on a Friday night seated by the window. Nice ambiance. Started off with a glass of wine which was a good pour, always appreciated. My friend had a grilled romaine Caesar salad which was excellent and quite large. I had Thai curry mushroom soup which was like a mushroom slurry with a bit of a... More

We had a great dinner with the family. We came in at 8.30 PM and sat at the table 5' after that. The waiter was fantastic. We ordered around 8.45 PM and the appetizers arrived around 9.20 PM. The food was excellent: Tuna Tartare as a daily special and the octopus from the main menu. The main course was superb... More

Service, good. Drinks, OK. Food, somewhat pricey for the average quality and presentation. Meats were not butchered properly and what looked like a large portion turned out to be fatty and inedible. Not totally disappointed, but not sure if we will make it back again.

Must-visit in Lake Geneva. Started with the broccoli cheddar soup, which had lots of veg and cheese and was not pure cream. Dinner was roast pheasant with pheasant sausage and Brussels sprouts. My partner had the pork chop with sweet potatoes. Meals were perfect and delicious. I had the local cider - very dry but good. Great ambience, friendly staff.... More

The food was excellent. Four of us dined, two adults, two teenagers. The staff was patient and accommodating with the kids. The girls had pasta, my friend had scallops ,and I had the wagyu steak. Everything was well prepared and delicious.
