It was very romantic and the food was great. Very fun experience overall! The only drawback is that seating is tight

It was pretty good. I didn’t appreciate the tastes of alcohol in the foods. Too much wine in the cheese and too much liquor in the chocolate. other than that, it was great.

Not good... cheese fondue tasted like heated kraft cheese in powder. Bread was pure rubber. Just came back from Paris where a fondue in a hole in the wall was a gazillion times better and a meal was 50 a piece... not 230 for two.
Nice ambiance and service but not worth it.
Sorry, don’t mean to write poor reviews, but i was asked......

My last few times that I’ve been have not been the way it used to be. The only thing that’s been consistent is the cheese, bread basket and salad. The main course has been lacking on the veggies they give and amount of meat. Dessert used to come with complementary coffee and now they charge you $3 for a tiny cup. The service has also been lacking. We were never offered refills on our drinks we had to ask for drinks and water refills. The one person who was on top of service wasn’t our waiter but one of the helpers. He did notice when water needed refilling and was there for us to ask for refills. I will most likely still go but am more likely to find a new girls night dinner spot.

Being a fondue restaurant, you can effect to leave smelling like your dinner. The service was great, but a bit too many filters on the main dish. About half an onion and a full bell pepper. The rest was great.

Other than both of us getting splattered and stung by the boiling oil, it was a great experience. Never had that happen in past visits, and sadly it was a while before the waiter showed up to fix it.

This restaurant is a must-have romantic experience in Chicago! Walking into the building was like getting transported to Spain. My date and I had the premium dinner and the food was a fun to share and came very quickly. Many laughs were had!

This was my Husband and I first time at your restaurant. Celebrating our 10yr Wedding Anniversary, let me tell you. It was amazing, from the valet, checking in our coats, the romantic setting. The waitress was amazing. I believe her name was Mary, she explain everything perfectly checked on us throughout the dinner, monitor the fire, was very aware that we were done with 1 setting bringing out the next. Would absolutly recommend your restaurant.

Celebrating 51 years of marriage. Everything was wonderful except since I had made a reservation ahead of time, it would have been nicer to be in a booth instead of at a table in the middle of the room.

As usual, Geja's did not disappoint. The prices were lower because it was restaurant week, which was a plus!

One of the best American takes on the Swiss fondue diner.
Awesome food that will sure to have you full, and a wide enough selection to accommodate nearly all diets.
A very interactive experience that keeps the whole table engaged and squashed some of the modern dinner table lulls.

Geja's is one of the most romantic spot's in Chicago. It was especially decked out for Valentine's Day, but have been on other nights and it never disappoints. Don't skip the dessert cocktails, the Amaretto was unreal!

Everything was spectacular!

I was impressed by the variety of food and our waiter, Michael G., was very knowledgeable, friendly and professional.

The environment was gorgeous, with red, romantic lighting and hearts all over.

The cheese fondue was gritty. The bread and the churros provided for dipping were hard and old. The chocolate fondue was underwhelming and I had really expected better food from Geja’s.

Love this place. Seems to be even better every time I go. I had the Prince Geja's combination and it's worth every penny! The 25 dollar corking fee per bottle could be lower, but it won't stop me from returning.

Great food and service overall, but there were a few concerns. First, it was a bit louder than normal, to the point that it started making conversations a bit difficult and detracted from the normally quite romantic atmosphere. Secondly, the lighting seemed brighter than normal, which is to say slightly too bright, but this may have just been a difference in our seating location as I had never sat in the back corner before. Overall it was still a great evening, and we will be returning again.
