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! It is a bit... More

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

Living in Toronto, it's difficult to find unique, novel dining experiences - we are spoiled with such a variety here. But I learned of Geja's Café from a Chicago expat I work with and am so grateful he passed on this little gem. The atmosphere is wonderful - individual little "rooms" almost that make you feel like you're dining in... More

My fiancée and I went there for her birthday dinner during a trip to Chicago, and we loved it. The food was excellent (beef tenderloin was melt-in-your-mouth good). The wait staff was attentive and explained the best procedure for cooking each item. We definitely plan on dining here again on future visits to the Chicago area.

My initial review of this place was not so good (there was a very big issue that the restaurant did not handle well), but the manager took note of our dissatisfaction and sent us a gift card to give the restaurant another chance. Frankly, I'm glad we did because our second time around was much better and I wish this... More
