I was very excited to try this place and celebrate my husband's birthday. When I called and made a reservation, I told them it was my husband's birthday and they would bring him out a birthday treat. It never happened! The best part was I watched multiple other tables receive their birthday treat with a candle, I felt very bad... More

This is the annual anniversary restaurant for my wife and I. We plan our trip to Chicago around this reservation. Good wine list and good food, but really we come for the atmospher and the service. The atmosphere is dark, cozy, and romantic. The service is always good. I can't recommend this place enough

My wife and I visited Geja for dinner while staying in Chicago. Upon entering the restaurant you notice all the charm and decor. It was very busy for a Thursday evening. We had a little booth that we really liked. The food was delicious. Reminded us of our trip to Switzerland. I didn't initially think I'd enjoy grapes with the... More

Great place for a romantic dinner. The experience of cooking our food was new and exciting. I just love getting out my comfort zone and trying something different. The staff was very friendly and kind. The dim lighting and great wine really sets the mood..I highly recommend this location for a date night..

I'm very happy that a good friend of mine recommended me - Geja's Cafe. It was beyond my expectations as far as atmosphere, service, and food goes. It was the beginning of Fall, when I first came to Geja's and as soon as I set foot there, it felt as if I were in Venice or perhaps, Madrid. The candle... More

I've called this a great experience rather than a great meal, and I've done so on purpose. No-one can doubt the cosiness of Gejas, with its booths and low-level lighting creating a warm and intimate atmosphere. Service is very good, with helpful explanations of how long to cook the various ingredients, a very prompt iced water re-filler, and plenty of... More

Description
Chicago's most romantic restaurant featuring fondue dining and fine wines. We are open 7 days a week. Fondue dining - cooking at the table - is a great way to give your family and friends a unique experience. Geja's features an extensive, moderately priced wine list, with many selections by-the-glass. Reservations are recommended. We would be delighted to help plan your private party. We accept all major credit cards. Because of safety concerns we do not allow children under the age of 10. Dress code: Many of our guests are celebrating a special occasion and we ask that your attire reflect that. The dress code at Geja's Cafe is business casual. For men, a collared shirt and dress pants are appropriate. For women, business wear or dressy casual attire would be most comfortable. More specifically, we do not allow beachwear (flip flops, tank tops, etc.), athletic wear (jerseys, sweatpants, gym shoes, etc.), ripped or torn clothing and hats of any kind.
