Located on Main Street in the heart of downtown, Sopra Bistro combines the laid back atmosphere of Lake Geneva with the dynamic feel of Lincoln Park, Chicago.
The warm wooden barstools, chairs and tables create a harmonious balance of elegant American bistro and a comfortable neighborhood bar.

    We were a little early for our reservation and were seated right away. We had the trout, duck and the baked olives for an appetizer. The food was all cooked to perfection. Best duck I’ve ever had. The skin was so crispy and the meat was very juicy and tender. Will return.

    Reserved via OpenTable but when we checked in was told we didn’t have a reservation. Showed the confirmation email from OpenTable and was told sometimes those reservations ‘don’t come through’ Service was excellent and atmosphere was great but the food was just ok. Beet salad was great but the 2 pasta dishes we ordered had very overcooked noodles. For the price, not a good value at all.

    I’ll begin by stating that our overall experience was positive, especially the service. With that stated, I submit that some of the items could have been more polished/impressive. We started with the burrata, which was served cold, even the bread. And, although it was “ok”, it was nothing special. For the entrée, I had the “Frenchie”, while my wife enjoyed the grilled salmon, which we both agreed was the best dish of the night. And even though the “Frenchie” was good, it wasn’t as creamy as I was expecting; nor was the duck quite as tender as I had imagined it would/should be. Finally, we ordered coffee - which was excellent - and a “triple chocolate coppa”, which turned out to be an underwhelming cup of glorified pudding. Lastly, the volume of the place isn’t conducive to conversation. With the rather loud music and conversations of others reverberating off of the abundant hard surfaces, I found myself wait for lulls in volume to converse with my wife. We really wanted to love this place, as it’s near our home; perhaps we’d return if some of the polishing occurred.

    We usually love this restaurant! However, it took a half hour for our drinks and over an hour to get anything else. The portion size for my husband wasn’t the greatest and he was still hungry after we were done. They did nothing to rectify the situation. What upset me I think is that the place was not full. Yes there we’re definitely tables but at least take our app off our bill or a drink. Something…

    We were seated upstairs, not in the main room which was unexpected. It was noisy and echoey up there and the lights kept flickering. It was hard to have a conversation because of the level of noise. Other than that, the food was good and our server was lovely.

    The food was delicious and the staff was friendly. I had the beet salad for dinner which was excellent and my husband had the lamb which he really enjoyed. The service was prompt and our server checked on us regularly to make sure were doing okay. It is dim lit with candles on the table which I really enjoy. It was pretty noisy which is understandable because they had a packed house (which didn’t bother me at all), it seemed like everyone was having a great time. We were visiting Lake Geneva and it seemed like there were a lot of locals dining at Sopra which is always a good sign! We would definitely dine here again!

    We came here for our first wedding anniversary. We were welcomed and brought immediately to our table. Our waiter was very knowledgeable on the specials and was quick to bring us our drinks and bread for the table. The ambience was perfect for having a conversation and not too loud. The food was delicious and would absolutely come here again.

    We were originally sat upstairs for our reservation, but upstairs had two large groups of what I am assuming were ladies night tables and they were extremely loud. We couldn't hear each other at all, so we asked our server if we could be moved downstairs which they happily did for us. They were very understanding, service after being moved was great and food was delicious (large portions too, a good bang for your buck)

    Our experience at Sopra was excellent. From the time we arrived until we departed we were treated like special guests. Our waitress was very professional and attentive. She was well informed on all the dishes and took her time to answer our questions. Cudos to chef Simon and his kitchen staff for all of the food we enjoyed. My beet salad with honey orange vinaigrette which was not only delicious, but presentation perfect. My scallops were perfectly pan seared and served with potatoes rounds and broccolini with a wonderful Brie cream. My husband raved about his pasta. So nice to have your pasta served correctly (a la dente) . Wait staff were really “bussing a move “ on a very busy night. You could tell they were working hard together to provide a great experience to their guests. We were happy to meet one of the owners on our way out and thank him for a great experience. I’m happy to tell our friends to visit Sopra for exceptional dining.

    The ambience is very intimate with low light mood lighting and subtle music playing in the background. Service can be either slow or fast depending on your waitor/waitress. However, the food is 7/7 with a unique twist on each of the dishes. Dessert is a must with the espresso crème brûlée and raspberry and creams

    I was so looking forward to eating at this restaurant but it was such a disappointment. We ordered the octopus, the duck entree and ragu pasta. I love octopus but their version of the octopus appetizer was quite frankly inedible. The octopus was rubbery and tasteless. It was supposed to be grilled but tasted like it was boiled. No charring whatsoever. The duck was fried and dry. It was in my opinion overcooked. Duck is another one of my favorites but for best taste, it should be cooked medium…definitely not well done. I will not be going back to this restaurant.

    Tables too small for 4. Each person had a table leg between their legs. It was so loud we couldn’t hear the server or each other. Food good but not worth the price sitting at an uncomfortable table amidst incredible noise.

    I and two girlfriends had dinner at Sopra last night. I'd been there a couple times some years ago but they'd never been. Bottom line, we were all blown away by the wine and food. We started with fresh warm bread and roasted olives. Our wine was a 2019 Starmont California Cabernet Sauvignon -- smooth and robust, a perfect accompaniment. I had roasted salmon, fingerling potatoes with créme fraiche and dill, and broccolini -- fabulous! My friends had the duck with black truffle risotto cake, and the pork tenderloin medallions with wild mushrooms. My friends raved about their food, too. We all vowed to come back soon!

    We arrived early but they had our table ready so they sat us when we arrived. It wasn’t overwhelmingly busy yet but it soon got there. Our server was outstanding though you could tell he became quite busy himself. We ordered a second round of drinks which took some time but we were sitting next to the bar and there was only one man making all of the drinks. He was calm while trying to produce and abundant amount and drinks. They both apologized but we weren’t in a rush so we were very understanding. The food was so delicious. I got the cow while my husband got the pig. The steak melted in my mouth like butter. So delicious. His pork was also so tender. Overall, I would highly recommend this place as long as your not in a rush.
