Sopra Bistro was a great random find. The staff was super nice and energetic; the food was super creative and tasty. The vibe was clean and relaxed. Would absolutely go back and would recommend to others.
Service was ok, cocktails lame. Ordered a Moscow Mule and was brought a vodka tonic. Sent it back for a Moscow Mule but instead of The bartender, waitstaff, or manager explaining that they did not have ginger beer they concocted a lime juice tonic water vodka drink of some kind that made me pucker just to sip it.
Very Good...Goat Cheese & Baby Octopus appetizer's is a must order
Scalllops good, aspirigus cold, puree cold
Nothing to put olive pits in
1/2 duck no breast portion
A bit disappointing compared to past experiences
Love the food here and our young waiter we have had he is always attentive
Great little joint with a flare. Really good for anywhere, but probably best in Lake Geneva.
Excellent service, food, drinks. All staff respectfully wearing masks. Really appreciate it. Thank you Sopra!
As good as it gets in the Covid era. Wish they would bring the bread back.
We dined at Sopra last year and enjoyed it so much we wanted to go again this year when we visited Lake Geneva. They are doing a great job with social distancing. I had a specialty cocktail with vodka, picked onion and brine. The beet salad was amazing. I had spaghetti bolognese for entree and it was just average. My husband had pasta and loved it. Just an off night for me.
Awesome dinner and fantastic service. We cannot wait to go back again
I’ve been a regular diner at Sopra for the last two months since I moved to Lake Geneva. I always sit at the bar and I’ve been impressed with the staff until last night. I was having a lovely evening until another couple sat down and I overheard how differently they were treated. The bartender was much more friendly with them and explained specials that we had never heard about. No big deal? As she was telling them the specials, another server walked by and said there was one order of the special entree remaining. This couple, seated 15 minutes after us, ordered the special we had never heard about and there was no more. It definitely made me angry to see that we were getting a lower level of service despite the fact that I had taken the time to find out the bartender’s name, Stacy, and introduced myself and my guest. Although I live a mile away and have previously enjoyed my experiences at Sopra, I don’t think I’ll be revisiting this restaurant any time soon, and what a shame as this other couple said, “We will definitely stop back when we are in town again NEXT YEAR.” You lost a regular customer, Sopra, because your bartender gave special service to people who stop in once a year.
The server took awhile to refill our drinks. Otherwise everything was wonderful, especially the food!
Wonderful Restaurant! We were a party of four and ordered four different entrees and shared them. The scallops and salmon were fabulous, and two of the pasta dinners were also excellent. Fun drinks, great wine. Perfect experience! Thank you Sopra!
All of the food was amazing. We did try a few of the specials and the lamb chops were exceptional. We had many of the appetizers and they were all spectacular also
Very delicious. Prices on the higher side but worth it given the food and service.
Food was fabulous! The selections were all unique. Seating was nice but the street is always busy and noisy. Too bad there was a back garden to use. Would have made the night even more wonderful
The octopus appetizer and Brussels salad were delicious. Gnocchi was just ok, it had good flavor. My husband had the farfalle with shrimp and it was pretty bland and presentation was lacking, it was not unsimilar to what we could of made at home. The dish contained jalapeños but you would have never known it. Drinks were stiff but we didn't get them very timely and there was only one other inside table at the time we ordered. Would definitely go back for the above mentioned app and salad but skip the pastas and maybe try something else. Overall good experience.
A nice place, but took forever to place our order and then forever to get the food. Food was very good when it came.
Dining-out in a nice restaurant during Covid has its challenges for restaurants, especially relative to ambiance. Can't wait to go back here when the dining experience is eventually unaffected by the pandemic.
Food and drinks were amazing but it took 3 hours to serve 5 people each one drink and one entree.
We went on a Thursday (half-price wine night!) and everything about the evening was perfect! We had a reservation and our table was ready when we arrived. We were seated and our server (I think her name was Laura) was at the table within minutes to take drink orders. Of course, we ordered a bottle of wine because, why wouldn’t you?? We were given just the right amount of time to enjoy our wine before salads were served and the same before entrees. The food was delicious (the beet salad was perfection). The service was impeccable the whole evening, which is pretty amazing because they were short staffed and servers were also having to make drinks for their tables. It was pretty full both inside and out and there was a festive atmosphere but not so noisy that you couldn’t have a conversation. Some might consider Sopra to be a bit on the pricey side but it is DEFINITELY worth what you pay to have food with a gourmet flair, great service and fun ambience!
Chef Simon never disappoints!! The food was delicious... AS ALWAYS!!! The only disappointment was not seeing Alastair and Carrie!!! Of course we’ll be back!!!! <3
Food was good. Little pricey
Good food and great service!!
First timers and LOVED IT! Our server was amazing
The food was delicious! My friends and I did “family style” so got to taste lots of dishes!! Looking forward to returning for the gnocchi - easily a table favorite!
The service was ok...water was empty a handful of time but aside from that things were mostly great!
We had a reservation and were seated right away, however waited 20 minutes for a drink and almost an hour for our food to come. When it came the pork and goat cheese were excellent. Well cooked, and tasted delicious. The pasta was dried (farfalle with cream and peas), and the appetizer baby octopus was not edible-like rubber.
On the reservation I stated we were celebrating three birthdays. There was not even a word about it... we left and got dessert somewhere else. I will not be going back.
Sitting outside on main street just doesn't work well unless you really want to see and hear all the traffic.
A wonderful night began with a warm greeting by the hostess. Our server, Michelle I believe, was excellent...knowledgeable about the entire menu and prompt with each course. The food was incredible as it always is...best restaurant in Lake Geneva, without a doubt.
We are locals and love sopra!
Thanks for wearing masks.
Sopra never disappoints. A great meal with great service!
We had a wonderful meal. My husband had the lamp chops and said they were superb; our friend got pasta special and said it was wonderful.....in fact he wrote me later to say how much he enjoyed the meal (and I thought it was my charm)., I had the mussels and thought they could have used more garlic....I like really garlicky mussels so these may have been fine with those who don’t want as much. The service was great....would definitely go back again!
Truly not one to complain but this place is horrible! Ordered martini - was made to “their” recipe with cava juice or something. No offer to make the reg way. No bread or salad to go with dinner. Catfish tough; pork chop cooked to death. Music playing was loud and many songs from the movie Rocky. A Bistro?? No way. Horrible. McDonalds does better.
Fantastic food and it was so awesome to sit outside - the bolognese is divine! Service was mediocre at best but would go back for that dish whenever in Lake Geneva.
Good food and service. Should have sat inside. Table outside was right on the street and very loud. The table inside available for our reservation was tiny so opted for outside. Server was great.
The food and drinks are outstanding. Great service and the space is simple.
We had salmon and duck for dinner and it did not disappoint. Both dishes were very good and we enjoyed our meal.
The drinks were wonderful also.
This is one of the best restaurants in Lake Geneva and highly recommended.
Food was outstanding but service was below expectations
The food and service was awful. We mentioned that it was our anniversary in the reservation and they stuck us in corner table near the restroom. Would not recommend going there.
We had a wonderful time. Due to the Covid we sat outside and people watched. The food was outstanding the drinks were no bueno.
We will definitely try it again.
