My husband and I consider Geja's our favorite place for anniversary dinner!! Our two teenage boys love it too, though, which is sort of rare they agree on something between themselves and with parents!!! The only high-end restaurant they want to go on special occasions and they will smile and behave they whole time :). Highly recommend!!

Thoroughly enjoyed the dining experience. However, due to average cost of $60 per person, not even including the cost to check your coat, park and tip, it would be cost prohibitive to return. Individual portion size of food comparable to ordering a stir fry. Expect a Large portion of veggies, with approximately an 8 oz portion in combined total of all meats of choice, whether chicken, beef tenderloin, or shrimp. The only impression to be had upon receiving the tray of food is questioning whether the meats come with a refill. They don't. The meats quality was good however. If you are able to move on from the sticker shock, the cooking and eating experience with the skewers part was tons of fun. There are a vairiety of 8 different sauces provided, so if you plan ahead what sauce with meat and veg you cook, you can make yourself a variety of perfect bites of all different kinds. If I won a raffle and got a gift certificate to eat for free, I would have enjoyed it 1,0000%. Unfortunately, it wasn't and I'm a one hit wonder, p.s. hard to justify a $300 night out for 4. I paid less for a trip to Las Vegas!

This retaurant has a nice environment, however the service is terrible. We waved at our waiter several times and he ignored us, plus the attitude didn't help at all. The food is overpriced and is nothing wow.

My husband & I had our first date here 22 yrs ago...we loved it! After being married all these years that has been the most memorable romantic moment shared. Going back in time it seems in getting engaged I more remember a ' let's get married' type proposal than a much wanted traditional one. Lately reminiscing & being in that romantic state of mind I requested this year to go back to Geja's Cafe but with a down on your knee type new proposal from my husband Joe. He made that wish come true with a hesrtfelt sweet proposal and put a new diamond ring on it!

Have been to Gejas many times over the past 25 years or so, our children know it is an all time favorite place so they buy us gift cards for Christmas. We were so looking forward to our date this past Saturday, however, the service was not up to par for Gejas, our chocolate fondue for desert came out cold which was disappointing and never really did warm up, they use to flame the top, not this time, no coffee available either as we had to take the last dinner reservation since that was all that was available, I felt rushed and certainly disappointed

Wonderful! Ambience was romantic and the food was alright. My boyfriend talked about the cheese fondue all throughout the following courses. Definitely will be returning!

I was not a fan of how little the portions were considering my date and I BOTH ordered a dinner, instead of sharing. Also, the chocolate dessert tasted as if they heated up chocolate sauce and put it in a pot (Again with minimal dessert options). Our server was great and was very informative. The front desk was accommodating and the free coat check was a plus. Overall, I would not recommend this place for the food as much as the atmosphere.

Not a fan of the meat and seafood choice, cheese and chocolates fondue was good. Very romantic, pricey for the quality and the amount of food received.
