    You have to try this. Very fun and delicious. It takes a while to cook all the food but well worth it. Be prepared to spend almost three hours dining. The dessert fondue was the best!!

    For people with price issues... Go to Geja's during restaurant week. $33 for salad, cheese fondue, entree fondue and chocolate fondue. You leave smelling like hot meaty oil but it's worth it

    Gruyère fondue gives way to seafood, aged beef tenderloin, vegetables, or all three, which you bubble in hot oil at the table. For a sexy finish, dip fruit into a pot of flaming chocolate. Read more

    Geja's is the number one rated fondue restaurant in Chicago. Their cheese fondue is to die for, but make sure to leave room for the dessert because the chocolate fondue is not to be missed. Read more

    Make reservations if you expect to get seated. Very iffy with out reservations. Expect to spend at least $50 per person without alcohol. Food is excellent. Service very good.

    Be advised, after diningat this restaurant your hair, skin and clothes will smell like oil. The food is great, the ambiance is spectacular, but the air ventilation is very poor.

    Best Fondue. Romantic if you are on a date or a fun night for a group of friends. Make sure you order the seafood with lobster AND the beef for your dinner.

    When are they going to add hot dogs to the dessert menu? When you roll them in the chocolate sauce and graham crackers, it looks just like kitty poop in a litter box.
