We visited Sopra Bistro during November, the off season, therefore, we were able to get a table along the window. The service was terrific and the food was delicious. We cannot stop talking about the roasted red pepper soup. We will return.

Last visit, I had an outstanding meal. Other visits, also very good. My husband has had hit or miss meals, he said it must really depend on what is ordered. I have been happy with all of my meals, but the last one in particular. So nice to have this added to our options for dinner. Also, the employees are... More

Lake Geneva has many restaurants that we enjoy for special occasions and we thought we would try a new restaurant and go to Sopra. Waitress didn't ask if it was our first time there or if we had any questions. There is a chalk board with food items on it, no one mentioned anything about it. When I made reservations,... More

I had stopped here with my friend a couple years ago and when we decided to come visit Lake Geneva again, we knew we had to stop again! And it did not disappoint! I had the salmon and my friends had pasta and the scallops. We all left with full belly's and plans of coming back again. I do recommend... More

12 people in our family recently ate at Sopra to celebrate our Mother's 80th birthday. For such a large group, the service was extremely attentive, helpful and patient. The decor was modern but rustic, and an easily walkable location from anywhere in town was helpful after dark. Definitely recommended!

My husband and I dined here on a Saturday night. The service was excellent and the food delicious. We started with salads which were great. My husband ordered a chicken gnocchi dish and I the salmon dish. Both were very tasty. We finished with the flourless chocolate cake. It was very good but very decadent. The only complaint we had...

Excellent food and service. Very impersonal host/ mgr. He picked certain tables to interact with but didn't recognize us until we walked out the door!

Surprised how busy the place was for the first week of October. Happy we made a reservation. The food and wine were delicious. The waitress was helpful in her suggestions.

Stopped in as we happened to be walking by. OMGOSH are we glad that we did!! The food was over the top amazing. Our waitress (Abbey) was a delight. We ordered the chef's specials and couldn't have been happier!! When you make reservations, request a table upstairs for a bit quieter atmosphere. One of the most outstanding restaurants I have...
