Fondue Fun

Geja’s Cafe was on a list of “must try” restaurants in Chicago as I googled places in the city suitable for a large party of 8-10 people. A lot of reviews label it as a romantic place, and while it does have a very romantic feel about the cafe, I wouldn’t completely rule out a fun get together with your friends. However, their largest table does fit 8 people so try to limit the number to that.

What a hidden treasure! I absolutely loved the dim, candlelit setting (almost like entering a secret cave or den of sorts), a casual bar in the back to hang out and chat with friends, the live solo guitarist playing beautiful soft background music, and the slightly curtained off and cushioned booths for a more intimate table of 2.

You have a few different types of fondue to order although our large group just stuck with regular chocolate fondue. The premium fondues are super pricey (check out the website) but if you have a date to impress, I say go for it!

One note: maybe it was because we stayed till near closing time, but the wait-staff rushes you a little to get cleaned up (which was a little bit irksome)… could be an isolated incidence.

Chocolate Fondue

Bananas, strawberries, pineapple, cherries, melon, apple, pound cake, and marshmallows in platters that are appropriate for the number of people in your group. The chocolate is lit “on fire” in the very beginning so you have a brief chance to roast the marshmallows. Definitely ample portions of everything!

A Great Dining Experience in a Romantic Setting

Gejas has a fantastic atmostphere. The resturant is dimly lit and the booths are nicely sectioned off from each other so you do not feel as though you are sitting on top of your neighbor.
I could not have been more pleased on both dining occasions. Gettting the premier dinner is a lengthy, but fun expierence. The amount of food is definitely over the top. It may not look like a lot but by the 4th course its hard to move out of your seat. It’s a great deal to go during Chicago’s restaurant week or to find coupons on restuarant.com for discounts on the dinners.
Reservations are a must, and I would recommend requesting a booth for a more intimate dining experience.

Best restaurant I've ever been to...

This place is expensive, but well worth the price. The food is original, and unlike anything you’ll get elsewhere. It is also of the highest quality, but not at the cost of quantity. Here you can have your cake and eat it to…or…eh…fondue.

The International

A gigantic spread of food, fit for a king. It included scallops, shrimp, and fresh lobster meat. Sides with mushrooms, peppers, onions, potatoes, and a million other vegetables that I can’t remember. Picture a serving tray piled high with food. And 10 unique dipping sauces.

Fondue for two - romantic and amazing

An amazingly romantic dinner for two. I highly recommend the whole fondue experience (cheeses, meats, fruits, chocolate) with wine pairings along the way.
