Great Experience overall. Took my wife for our anniversary. We had a sparkling Rose' wine. Steak and Lobster was perfect with all the dipping sauce. Anything in the DILL will work! Save room for dessert, it's the best part! Bring back the guitar player! 10 outta 10!

I've always liked fondue restaurants, and I liked this one as well though I had a few issues. I don't like to start off a review with a complaint but the first of two disappointing factors came early in the meal and that was the salad. Mediocre, at best. Next, cheese fondue which was very good. We ordered different entrees... More

Came here with a friend to visit family. Pleasantly surprised with the ambiance. Service was impeccable. The food was good but a little pricey so I opted for the cheese and vegetables and then chocolate fondue for dessert. Fun night!

Well, this was an eye-opener for us - an alpine ski-chalet-style restaurant in downtown Chicago! And not only was the ambience and decor very different - you get to do all the cooking yourself, too! Thanks to our local friends for introducing us to Geja's - we had a really good night out in this well-established restaurant specialising in fondue... More

This restaurant was reccomended to me by two Chicago natives. From cheese, to various meats choices to of course delicious chocolate - this is by far the best fondue I have had in the states. Additionally, the ambience is a treat in of itself. The restaurant is set in a beautiful wood varnished style along with a fine wine bar... More

For the ultimate romantic dinner try Geja's for fondue. The atmosphere is gypsy elegant & the food is delicious. The service is attentive but never overbearing. For a special occasion or simply a lovely night with a special someone, Geja's is the place.

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.
