My wife and I love this restaurant. We have been twice and it has been perfect all the way around. Romantic atmosphere, great food. Very easy to get too. We have been able to find free parking in the area as well.

This reasonably priced Thai restaurant in Southern Lincoln Park near Old Town is worth a visit. The food was well prepared, but unremarkable. The service was fine (early dinner and only 5 people in the place with one server). I'd come back again, but that's because I live nearby. I'd not travel far to eat here.

The restaurant is truly great for dates. It has great food and service. It's a little pricy, but with the groupon it is very reasonable. I would highly recommend going here.

My fiancé and I were heading to Chicago for a weekend together. We saw the groupon for Geja's cafe and decided to give it a try as we had never been to a fondue place before and the reviews were overall pretty good. The food was excellent and the experience was great. However for $30 for the groupon, you are... More

I was in Chicago for a work/vacation, and had dinner with co-workers and my family. This was the perfect location. The food was wonderful and the service was as good as I have ever experienced. A really fun place to enjoy your group's conversation. The restaurant was full but still able to hear everyone at our table.

As a Chicago native, for years I've been hearing rave reviews from friends and family about how great their experience was at Geja's. When my Mom bought a groupon, we couldn't wait to make a reservation and see for ourselves what all of the hype was about. We made reservations for 6:30PM on a Wednesday night last month. She was...

We came to this place because there aren't too many places where you can fondue in our city. We immediately loved the atmosphere in the restaurant, very cosy. We went for the international fondue which consisted out of a small cheese fondue, main course: chicken, steak and shrimp fondue and the chocolate fondue. Loved the cheese fondue, so yummy with...

We joined another couple (surprise!) for our friend's birthday. It is her favorite restaurant and her husband had called me the week before to have us there. She was also quite surprised to see us there, since my husband is not a big fondue person. His "Why pay so much to cook your own food!" has gotten him a few... More

I love this place and so does my girlfriend. I've been a few times and it has never disappointed. I get the Connoisseur: aged beef tenderloin, jumbo gulf shrimp, and succulent lobster tail and of course this come with the cheese fondue app and chocolate fondue desert, I get it every time and it is FANTASTIC!

1) look for coupons if you're going with someone or a group. 2) make a reservation 3) Arrive hungry, but for goodness sakes, pace yourself and don't gorge on the cheese and crackers if they have you wait at the bar. Yes, the cheese is very tasty. You'll be having a lot more. 4) Give that salad its due respect,... More
