This is a very romantic fondue restaurant that my wife and I have been going to for years. You'll need to make a reservation. The night we went they had 5:30pm adn 9:30pm available, so we chose the latter and it was still packed. The flamenco guitar is a great touch. We had the chicken and beef tenderloin fondue with...

My then girlfriend and I went to Geja's as part of their valentines day package. This has been her favorite restaurant for quite sometime. Everything was perfect and I proposed that night. The staff was wonderful and ensured that everything was taken care of. My fiance and I plan on going back on a regular basis.

This was my first time trying fondue. We enjoyed it. It was a good overall experience. I do see, however, how this is not for everyone. The cook it yourself can get old pretty fast. I would go back and get just deserts and appetizers.

Very expensive. Next time, I am just going for the dessert fondue! Service was great! Place was busy despite a fierce snowstorm going on outside!

Everything about this place is awful. The food and veggies were room temp ( hello salmonella ), the restaurant dark and musty, not romantic, and the service awful. Not worth the $60 a person. The manager is horrible at solving customers issues!

My Wife and I dined here recently for our 5th year wedding anniversary while we were holidaying from Australia. The moment we arrived we knew this place would be something special. We were greeted very friendly & politely from the woman at the door (Diana I think her name was?) As we got to the restaurant a bit earlier than... More

This is perfect for a large group or a romantic night out. It is a fondue experience. I know there are chain fondue restaurants, but this is a gourmet experience, not a chain restaurant experience. It's a spot known by chicago locals. We first went as a large group, then went back for our anniversary. It was just a little... More

My boyfriend and I went there for our anniversary. The food was great - both cheese and chocolate fondue were very tasty (I had better experience only in Switzerland). The staff was super nice and helpful. The atmosphere was good, though it's really dark inside, but it was ok for us. The price is not low, though acceptable for the... More

This was my first fondue experience. I found a Groupon before my boyfriend and I visited Chicago for our anniversary. When I booked our reservation they asked if we were celebrating any special occasion and when we arrived the hostess was sure to wish us a Happy Anniversary and there was a card on the table for us. The service... More
