We loved it.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic serviceMy parents were stuck in traffic, i kept in touch with them, but knew they couldn't promise anything. Well, even almost an hour late (thankfully our reservation was early!) they not only had a table for us, but they read my reservation notes and saved the front table for us (my mom is disabled and can't walk too far at one time). The waiters were awesome - very attentive, friendly but professional and made the stress of the traffic completely disappear.
They made my parent's 40th wedding anniversary dinner a night they will remember always.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is a wonderful fondueThis is a wonderful fondue experience.

This restaurant can't be beat for fondues & I look forward to returning many times in the future.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMTook my daughters here forTook my daughters here for a 17th birthday. They were enchanted! It was a favorite spot for my husband and I over the years, but we recently lost him to cancer. I'm glad they enjoyed it as much as we always had. Our server was wonderful, the music, the ambiance were all perfect.

Make sure to request a booth.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Fondue and Atmosphere in Town!I have visited Geja's Cafe now twice. Both times were incredible experiences. The first time I went was for my husband and I's one year wedding anniversary and the second was for a girls night out. The ambiance is romantic and enchanting and Geja's truly has the best fondue I have ever tasted! When you step inside, it looks more like you are in Europe than Chicago. The staff is just as incredible as the food. The host was very pleasant and friendly and our waitress not only knew both the dinner and wine menus well, but she also walked us through each step of the fondue experience. I highly recommend dining at Geja's for your next special occasion!4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMGREAT FIND!!! WILL DEFINITELYGREAT FIND!!! WILL DEFINITELY GO AGAIN. PERFECT FOR A SPECIAL OCCASION. DON'T DRESS REAL WARM. IT GETS PRETTY TOASTY WITH THE POTS SO YOU DON'T WANT TO OVERDRESS.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMA Dining ExperienceAbsolutely a restaurant to remember! It was not just a meal - it was a dining experience! The booths are charming. The classical guitarist added a touch of Europe -- the volume was perfect too. You could hear the music but it didn't interfere with conversation at all! Service was prompt and curteous but not rushed. Our server explained how long to cook each selection and offered great tips on the dipping sauces.
All 5 of us LOVED the whole experience!4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMWe hadn't been to Geja's inWe hadn't been to Geja's in over twenty years, and not much had changed! We arrived on time for our reservation, but one member of our group was delayed by an hour. The maitre'de waited until he arrived to seat us, which he did promptly. We enjoyed the restaurant to celebrate a family birthday, and it was a great way to share great food and conversation.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMWanted to have a differentWanted to have a different dinning experience to celebrate my husbands birthday. It was romantic as well as a fun dinning experience. We thought that the tray of seafood and vegetables wouldn't fill us up but by the end of our meal we were stuffed. Everyone was very friendly and our waiter was very helpful in our dinner and wine selections. Before we left the restaurant my husband had been wished a happy birthday by three staff members. Awsome time!!!4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMPrices have jumpedThis was a regular spot for me in my 20s, 30s, early 40s. Now I'm in my late 40s and had not been back in some time, but the price for the International went from $29.99 pp to $49.99 pp. It was always an expensive night out, but wow. Over the top now. I think that is why it was easier to get a table these days on a weekend.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMRomantic FondueEverything about the experience was fantastic. I requested to be close to the live music (which is a single guy who plays great classical guitar). We were seated right next to the music which was fantastic.
The food was great, and the wait staff was very attentive. All the tables are set very close to each other, but even so it still feels very romantic and intimate.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMThis IS the place to goI had read plenty of reviews before about Geja's and I can honestly say all of the positive reviews were spot on! This place is the perfect place for a romantic date and the service and food were top notch!4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMGeja's Cafe is in my top fiveGeja's Cafe is in my top five restaurants in Chicago. What a great place, great food, great service and great atmosphere. And, when we were running late due to weather and traffic conditions, they were gracious and readjusted our reservation. Definitely planning on returning to this great restaurant!4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMHow to Fon-DO it rightGreat place.
I took my girlfriend here for her birthday and it was a great experience. The restaurant is dim lit, cozy and romantic. Some places are darker than others but no worry, they give you a little flashlight if you need it :) Our server Leah was very helpful and attentive to everything we needed and explained everything very well, and since this was our first time eating fondue it was much appreciated. You also have an expert guitar player through out the whole time setting the mood just right.
The place IS pricey but you cant really put a price on good food, service, and a great time. Definitely will come back some day.4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMIt pays to be singleMy husband and I often go to Geja's for a special occasion - it's my favorite restaurant. We were engaged there 23 years ago and have visited several times a year since then. Service was ok from our server except for him not ever coming back to check on our sauces even though I was trying to get his attention. Two women were seated next to us and continually had someone at their table - mostly several different 'busboys'. They were asked, 'do you need more cheese? more fruit? more water? more coffee? and so on. That is fine and I get it as I was also single once. However, I do not understand how they can not see me waving or hear me saying excuse me from 3 feet away.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food, especially the cheeseThe food, especially the cheese fondue, was absolutely incredible. I cannot recommend this place enough. I've been telling everyone I know about how great the experience was.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMOnce again Geja's never let'sOnce again Geja's never let's me down!

We will be coming back again.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMThe pre-selected courses areThe pre-selected courses are great. The food was so delicious that the sauces weren't really necessary.4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMYou must try fondueIf you don't know fondue - you cook your own food at the table. The sharing of a pot of cheese, or chocolate or oil makes for an intimate and fun experience. Geja gives you the opportunity to fully explore this type experience while providing you with quality ingredients and an intimate setting. YOU can make it what you want! If you leave here unhappy then you did something wrong because Geja gave you the chance to make it great.4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMFrom the moment you walk inFrom the moment you walk in the door the staff are welcoming and helpful. The bartender/wine Stewart addresses you by name and chooses the best wine for you based on your taste. The service is attentive without being overbearing or rushing you out the door.The meats and vegetables were fresh and sauces offered were unique and delicious. The portions are a little large so make sure you save room for the chocolate Fondu dessert it truly is the best.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMexceptional experienceOne of our favorite places to visit when in the Chicago area. It's not just a wonderful meal, dining at gejas is unique and always a cozy, intement event. Love it!!!4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMOn our way to the restaurantOn our way to the restaurant we lost a $50 gift certificate. The manager, Jeff, was able to locate it in their computer system since it was purchased online and we were able to enjoy our dinner even more. This type of service and the romantic atmosphere is what brings my wife and I back to this wonderful hidden gem!4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was a beautiful place,It was a beautiful place, very romantic feeling. However, the waiter that attended us was rude and quite snobbish. My friend asked him a simple question, something that we as first timers wouldn't already know, and he replied with an attitude and I swear I could almost see his eyes rolling. But there was another server that occasionally attended us and he was most helpful. He was there in and out whereas the other server could never be found. Despite that, I would come back again. I would just ask for a different server if I ended up with that same guy again.3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMYou too can be a Great cook!!Awesome! Didn't know I was such a great cook- haha!
