Geja’s was again a terrific spot for my wife and I to enjoy a quiet and leisurely dinner. Each fondue was great and the service and wine were also wonderful.

The cheese fondue was our favorite of the night. The flavors was just perfect. The main meal is HUGE but the broth is very boring. However the sauces offered do balance it all out. The chocolate is a fun experience and quite tasty. The staff...More

Nice dinner. Plenty of food. I was not overly impressed with the cheese fondue. Tasted a bit powdery and not like the Swiss fondue we had last summer. Service was good but almost felt rushed. And it was difficult to understand the waiter since he...More

Chicago's most romantic restaurant featuring fondue dining and fine wines. We are open 7 days a week. Fondue dining - cooking at the table - is a great way to give your family and friends a unique experience. Geja's features an extensive, moderately priced wine list, with many selections by-the-glass. Reservations are recommended. We would be delighted to help plan your private party. We accept all major credit cards. Because of safety concerns we do not allow children under the age of 10. Dress code: Many of our guests are celebrating a special occasion and we ask that your attire reflect that. The dress code at Geja's Cafe is business casual. For men, a collared shirt and dress pants are appropriate. For women, business wear or dressy casual attire would be most comfortable. More specifically, we do not allow beachwear (flip flops, tank tops, etc.), athletic wear (jerseys, sweatpants, gym shoes, etc.), ripped or torn clothing and hats of any kind.
