overall...meh

Awesome, spectacular service....incredibly good cheese fondu starter.....incredibly good chocolate fondu dessert.......incredibly overpriced, small-portioned, stinky soybean oil main entree. We went to Second City after leaving Geja's and everyone within 10 feet of where we were sitting could smell the saturated oil in our clothes. The place settings while you cook the meat get loaded with oil as well, leaving you ... view more

Great experience!

My boyfriend and I have never had fondue and decided to give it a try. We went there with a Living Social coupon and they still treated us like normal guests. The food was absolutely amazing! We both loved the cheese and chocolate fondues, and the salad was very yummy too! We both didn't like the main course as much (frying the meats) because of all the grease (you end up smelling like it), but the dipping sauces wer... view more

Great fondue

Last Friday Erica and I decided to have a nice, romantic fondue dinner at Geja's. I'm surprised there are not more fondue places in Chicago. The melting pot is fine but has the obvious feeling of a chain restaurant and none of the charm of a neighborhood gem like Geja's. Writing a food review of fondue is tricky similar to a ""build-your-own stir fry."" Many of the flavors are self directed along with your success... view more

Horribly Overpriced Food

Horribly overpriced food with excellent service. For two people with one cheap drink each, the bill was $129.95. For that money, you get (with the seafood platter, not the most expensive item on the menu, and no a la carte): 1. Three pieces of lettuce with two slices of cucumber as a salad (one salad per person) 2. Cheese fondue with 4 small slices of apple, two small slices of pear, 6 grapes, and 4 cubes of brea... view more

PERFECT Fondue!

One word: ROMANTIC. The entire atmosphere is set up for a great intimate evening. The three courses will completely stuff you, and it's something that is a little different. Not every restaraunt you basically cook your own fooe. The Fondue itself is just fun! The add some wine, mood lighting, and cozy corners and you get again-ROMANTIC. Perfect for dates or a sweet night out!

The Best Fondue and very romantic!

This is the only way I'd do fondue, and I've gone to Gejas a number of times and I definitely would highly recommend getting a booth because it's definitely much better than the tables. Every time that I've gone I've had good service and the food has been good as well. Just be careful if it's your first experience to watch out for the oil because when it does get really hot it does kind of crackle and pop. The first ... view more

Perfect for couples

I went here with my boyfriend on a monday night to celebrate our one-year anniversary, and it was the best choice we could have made. First off, the valet was the great at only $9. We chose to wait for a booth (which I HIGHLY recommend doing). It definitely isn't a bad wait if you aren't pressed for time. They have a decent outdoor patio with little tables and candles, and the hostess calls you in when the booth ... view more

My favorite restaurant when I visit chicago!

I discovered this place 4-5 years ago when visiting chicago (I am from MI), and no fondue experience has ever been the same. Everytime I return to chicago it is a must that I dine here! If you have ever been to a chain like the melting/pot - it doesn't even compare to the experience here. The atmosphere is small, cozy, romantic. I DO recommend that when calling in for a reservation that you specifically ask for a... view more

So Cozy and Romantic...

As first timers at the Geja's Cafe I didn't know what to expect. I found the cafe in the Fodor's guide, with the words Romantic catching my eye. I called on a Thursday night making reservations for that Sunday for 7:00pm for two people. They were very nice on the phone. I let them know it was our first time at the cafe and it was my boyfriends birthday, so could we be put down for a booth(Fodor's recommendation).The ... view more
