Fondue
For over 55 years, fondue dining at Geja’s Café has been a favorite indulgence for Chicagoans as well as out-of-towners. It’s a perfect way to kindle romance, celebrate a special occasion or simply join family and friends for a fun and unforgettable dining experience.
To start we offer a Swiss Gruyere cheese fondue, served with fresh breads, fruits and vegetables for dipping. Our crisp house salad, dressed with tangy Dijon vinaigrette, offers a counterpoint to the rich, warm cheese fondue appetizer.
Next, you’ll cook your choices of Australian lobster tail, Gulf shrimp, beef tenderloin, fresh sea scallops or boneless chicken breast in a pot of sizzling soybean oil or broth. The main course is served with fresh vegetables and eight gourmet dipping sauces.
Our famous chocolate fondue is flamed table-side, and presented with marshmallows for roasting and other delectable dippers.

Started with salad, cheese / sausage board, cheese fondue, chocolate fondue to finish. Wonderful bottle of Prosecco to accompany.
Next time: might just do cheese fondue and cheese / sausage board to finish.
As always, very abundant portions. We had to leave a lot in the pot.

As always, we have a wonderful time when we go to Geja’s - but there was something special about this dinner as Chicago is reopening and the vibe at Geja’s was exciting. Everyone seemed really happy to be back and getting closer to normal.

The food, service, wine - everything was dialed to 11 for the evening. I can’t thank the team enough. Our waiter, Tino, was extremely professional and friendly. He took care of our extra requests quickly (e.g., extra sauce, veggies).

We also recommend the Prince dinner for those who want a bit of extra seafood to try. We thoroughly enjoyed it. Also, if you like curry, ask for their curry sauce.

We can’t wait to return. Thank you everyone for a great night.

We went for our anniversary and it was fantastic! They gave us a card right at the beginning that said happy anniversary on it and congratulated us when we sat down. Service was phenomenal and the food was an unforgettable experience. We especially loved the s’mores at the end!

Nice place but yesterday's service was not ok. I mentioned to the host and the waiter that I had a food allergy and they brought out the fruit I am allergic to anyway. When I asked if the fruit was cut on the same cutting board or together, the host said he'd ask the kitchen but he never came back, he also said to scoop it out of the plate onto another. I left so itchy and with watery eyes. Food allergies are not be dismissed like that. Also, the waiter came a couple of times but once he brought the food, he disappeared; only came back to drop off the check without asking if we needed anything else. We had to take the check to the front to pay because he never came back, and I needed to get away from the allergen. Perhaps they were having a bad day, so I would still come back some day - I'll probably bring my Epipen next time

This was my first experience with a fondue restaurant and I will definitely be coming back. We came out for our anniversary and the ambiance, service and experience was spectacular. I had a smile on my face the whole time and it was very relaxing and forces you to slow down to eat and enjoy the people you are with. Everyone was very nice and super helpful. The dark atmosphere makes it seem like you we're there just at your table. Monika was a great server! Very energetic and fun! I would highly recommend this experience. If you or your friends tend find themselves in a phone this is a great way to keep you occupied and engaged!

We had a marvelous meal--although we ate way too much! The ambiance is great, if perhaps a bit too low-lit. The service was fantastic and our servers, Monica and Carlos, were wonderful. Not a place to go everyday, but for occasions it's perfect.

I didn't like the fact that I was informed that I needed to cancel my reservation 24hours in advance or I would be charged $25 per person on my reservation which was 4. I read that I was giving my credit card info to hold my reservation only. I needed to cancel because I was in pain and didn't want to come out but I made myself make it because I didn't want to be changed! This is a food restaurant not a hotel! Then to top it off I was disappointed with the service! Definitely will Not be coming back!!!
