We met friends here on a Friday nite. Before going, you should go on line to look at the menu which is well balanced between Italian and fine American cuisine. We shared a raw ahi tuna and a baby octopus starter.....they were terrific, especially the tuna which had been marinated in some kind of hot sauce. Two of us had... More

I've lived in lake geneva for 12 years and never had stepped foot in Sopra. Great drinks and food. Had to wait a little bit for the food but well worth it. Share a few apps and share the past dish. Way too much for one person. Dirty martinis an A++. Don't know why I've never been here before.

Our business team went to Sopra last week during an annual meeting. We found the wine menu eclectic and exceptional. I had the Penne with duck meat..... Wow it was favorable and the plate most generous. Highly recommend Sopra for an upscale bistro in downtown Lake Geneva. It was an unexpected pleasurable dining experience.

This trattoria is located right in town. Small menu, but it seemed that each dish was carefully thought out. Very fresh and innovative offerings. Servings were substantial. The desserts were nothing short of fabulous. Full bar with some pretty fancy looking cocktails, but we drank wine. Good wine list.

My adult son and I had dinner here after a beautiful walk along Lake Geneva. We were starving and were seated right away. It took 30 minutes for a waitress to come to our table, 30 minutes to receive our drinks we ordered and about another 45 minutes to an hour to receive our food. The "sashimi grade" tuna was... More

Our waitress was wonderful! Great service and great food--pasta was a bit pricey, but it was a large portion and tasted very good! Nice outdoor seating area too!

Best food in Lake Geneva and rivals any top restaurant. My wife is total foodie and we both noticed the subtle ingredients and careful preparation. She had the duck and I had the lamb chops with kalamata olive topanade mashed potato and spinach. I started with the beet salad and a glass of Cabernet. We were full but had to... More
