My boyfriend and I went for the first time for a date night and it did not disappoint! All the servers were excellent! Try the sangria, we got a carafe of the white sangria to share. We were a bit skeptical about the portion sizes since we both have big appetites but we both left stuffed. We will definitely be regular patrons of Gejas!

My family has included Geja’s in our trips to Chicago since my childhood. It hasn’t changed, which is a GREAT thing. The food is fantastic, the environment romantic, the servers are knowledgeable, and the experience can’t be beat.

We had high expectations because of the reviews and the price. Our favorite part was the chocolate fondue. If we come back, that’s all we’ll have. The chicken made me really sick. They said 4 min; I left it in the oil for 5. The portions were fine but I think it was a little overpriced.

We were seated in the corner with very little space for movement. We asked to be moved they said no. Two minutes later, the couple next to us asked to be moved and they were moved. We weren’t very happy about that.

Overall, Geja’s was a great experience! The food was delicious and definitely worth the value. Service was top notch. The only negative would be that it was really cramped in there and warm. It felt like we were on top of another table almost.

Geja’s Café was a fun experience. The food was good, but didn’t live up to the price tag. Cool place to experience but probably won’t be putting it on the short list.

Disappointed, dinner service is planned to be 2 hours, we did not plan for that so we felt rushed as we only had 1 hour and 45 minutes to get through everything. No one was in a rush to get to our table. We felt like we were thrown in a corner and forgotten about. Which is sad because we made our reservations 3 weeks in advance and we’re excited to try this place as friends recommended it. Had to cut our meal short and skip dessert to get to a show on time. They said they’d credit us but didn’t.

Everything from the food, service and environment was great except the noise level. We were expecting a more quiet and romantic atmosphere, but found the crowd to be rather loud and noisy. I understand this is a restaurant, but being labeled as one of the most romantic places in Chicago to dine needs to have some limitations on the level.

It's a place you would go only once, the amount of food we got for two entries for the price we paid was not worth it. our table was not comfortable, very small and right next to the serving area.

The ambiance was very romantic. The staff were courteous. The appetizers were amazing and the cheese was unforgettable. The main course was ok. The sauces were pretty good. The dessert was awesome. Overall a wonderful experience. A little pricy though. A couple should plan to spend between $150 and $175.

Have been going to Geja’s for decades and had to introduce my college age son to the experience. Had a great time but while it was FREEZING outside it was uncomfortably warm in the restaurant (and I am generally cold). I took off my sweater to my plain top underneath, but my son had no choice than to BAKE. Otherwise a nice night and yummy food!

Defiently an experience. Pretty pricey for the amount and quality of food given. Was never asked if we would like to take home left-overs but noticed other tables had wrapped up boxes. Overall great returnant, but for raw food cooked in nothing but oil, with NO seasoning, the prices were a little high.
