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.

This is one of the best spots for a quiet romantic dinner!
one of our favorite restaurants for a special occasion -been here at least 10 times !
Great for romantic dinner or just fiber with friends!
Expensive but delicious
A wonderfully romantic place that is one of my favorites places to take my wife
It was Awesome
Went with work colleagues this time while we were in town for a conference. As always, it was a wonderful experience. The newcomers will be back and plan to tell their Chicago friends about it also.
We were 1st timer husband and wife who talked about trying Geja'a for years but don't normaly spend this much on meals. We finaly went for her birthday and loved the place... We will be back again for special occasions. ~ Scott and Anna
Amazing experience great food, we had a great time
Romantic. Soft lighting, perfect for pictures. The service was amazing. Very fun date.
We were frequently pressured (reminded) that we only had a two hour limit.
The food and service were both amazing. I will be back again to enjoy this fun experience!
Cool place for a date and a fun/different experience. Food was just okay and the meats/veggies come with filleting sauces, so it’s nothing spectacular.
I was honestly disappointed of this overpriced dining experience. We paid almost $80/ person for our group of 4 and it was mostly cut veggies and food that I could've made at home which isn't even authentic Swiss Fondue. I come from Switzerland and Fondue is mostly served with bread pieces and a thick bitter Swiss cheese which usually includes Emmental cheese, not fruits & veggies like grapes and onions! I honestly don't understand the audacity of charging guests so much for mostly cut fruits and veggies that you need to dip in cheese & water yourself (dipping veggies in boiled water isn't even Swiss). I usually don't write reviews but got really shocked about this experience. To be fair, the service was pretty good (even though our food was taken away multiple times before being done with it) and there was live music. So basically none of us ate our money's worth but the ambience was nice. Thank you for asking for my opinion!
From the moment we walked in, everything was perfect
It was our anniversary and all the servers signed a card. They gave us a private area and took exceptional care of us
It was a 2 hour experience filled with food and conversation and laughter
We couldn’t ask for more
The atmosphere was perfect for a first date! The staff were accommodating and the food was delicious! I highly recommend this restaurant!
Monika was the best server ever!
Absolutely wonderful meal. We left so stuffed because it was so delicious we wanted to keep eating more. Great date, service was lovely.
Wonderful atmosphere,great service, great food!!!
Kendra was awesome. It was my boyfriend and I first time there. She explained everything to us and even gave us history on the restaurant and more. We’ll definitely be back.
Outstanding! Every time we visit Geja’s Cafe, we are treated like family. The food is always tasty and fresh. Friendly and professional staff, overall a great experience. Thank you!
One of the most special and unique dining experiences in Chicago. Known for its’ romantic ambiance and fondu dinners, it never disappoints. This time, we were flanked by our adult children for a birthday celebration for my wife and it was equally special!
Our servers were incredible and attentive and funny!! Mgmt was also awesome. Great staple of the city.
Beautiful place with a great atmosphere. We celebrated our anniversary there. 2nd time there, and will be many more!
This place is very elegant... nice romantic spot...I will most definitely return
The place to go for a full dining experience. Romantic and delicious!
Have been here a few times over the last several years. Each time is as amazing as the last. A great value for what you get!
the staff was wonderful. food was delicious. drinks were yummy... loved everything
Very Nice . Went there 31 years ago for engagement celebration and also we went on our first date here.. We brought friends for there first time and they loved the time there. Always a big smile when we come here..
We have been coming here for several years. Food was good, but way overpriced for what you received. Unfortunate because it was always one of our favorites when we went into the city.
Geja’s Cafe is a wonderfully romantic restaurant that gets an A in every category. I’ve never been to a restaurant before where everything was perfect, including the ambiance, the food, and the quality of service. The outdoor table my husband and I were seated made us feel totally alone and secluded. Perfect way to celebrate our anniversary—with a hand signed card from the staff to top it all off. Thank you Geja’s Cafe, we’ll definitely be back!
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.
Overall very impressed
Absolutely amazing- great for a special occasion every year or two!
Our table was very small and cramped. Definitely not big enough for 3 adults (tiny booth *right* next to the host stand
Everything was GREAT as always. So glad that you are back open 😊.
This is a MUST try if you haven’t .
Always great service and fantastic food. A different kind of dinning experience. Ambiance inside is perfect for a night away with someone special.
First time in Chicago and wanted something more. You’re not going to get it at Geja.
