5 Romantic Restaurants in Lake Geneva

Share a special meal with your significant other at one of the most romantic restaurants in Lake Geneva. To turn up the excitement and grandeur, you need a restaurant that goes the extra mile. In Lake Geneva, that added effort means flying ingredients in from Italy, offering splendid lake views, entertaining you with live music, and preparing custom and extravagant meals. Don’t forget to make a reservation!

Baker House

You’ll feel like royalty in the Baker House’s Victorian Mansion, surrounded by sparkling chandeliers, intimate, old-world furnishings, and attentive service. During the winter, call ahead to reserve a spot at their extravagant Sunday brunch buffet. You’ll enjoy bottomless champagne, made-to-order Eggs Benedict, and other popular favorites like crab cakes and bananas foster French toast.

In the summer, plan for a mouthwatering multi-course meal accompanied by live music. The Baker House pays attention to details and tradition; as the summer sun sets over the lake, the whole restaurant walks to the garden for a champagne toast inspired by Gilded Age ritual.

Medusa Grill and Bistro

This small, trendy, downtown eatery is locally renowned for its excellent Greek- and Mediterranean-inspired food. Menus change with the seasons, but the Chef’s Choice option is popular year-round. You and your partner can select meat, seafood, or a combination, and the chef will prepare a large platter just for you. A unique treat? You can watch your personal dinner being prepared via the kitchen’s live stream, shown on the TV above the bar.

Other rave-worthy meals are the hand-cut steaks, calamari, lobster, and risotto. Save room for Medusa’s house-made gelato. 

Ristoranté Brissago

Great care is taken to make your experience at Ristoranté Brissago authentically Italian and top-notch. More than half of ingredients are flown in from Italy, and much of the rest is grown locally. Handmade pastas elevate each dish, including the sought-after Tagalitelli con l’Aragosta Lemirandi, or pasta with lobster and tomato saffron sauce. For plates you can share with your significant other, order a cheese plate featuring Italian classics.

You’ll find the restaurant on the second floor of the Grand Geneva Resort, along with sweeping views of the golf course and countryside.

The Geneva Inn Restaurant

The stunner at The Geneva Inn Restaurant is the view. Panoramic windows privilege every table to a vista of Lake Geneva, so time your reservation around sunset to take advantage of the romantic light during Golden Hour. Also look into when the regular Winemaker’s or Wisconsin Beer dinners occur; you and your partner will have fun trying the unique and local pairings.

The restaurant’s recently updated menu features classic steakhouse fare, with standouts like lamb chili, Scottish salmon, and maple bourbon glazed pork.

Sopra Bistro

You can taste Sopra Bistro’s laser-focus on locally-sourced ingredients and seasonal dishes. Located on Main Street, this bustling American bistro boasts global influences and artful presentations that will satisfy big city tastes. Returning guests rejoice when they see pappardelle with duck, spring-vegetable gnocchi, or lobster wontons on the changing menu.

Sopra Bistro’s wine list and cocktail menu also do not disappoint; plan to dine on Thursdays when it’s half-price wine night. For adventurous couples who love to try new food and creative combinations, Sopra Bistro is the perfect destination.
