    The combination dinner was so delicious. Still dreaming about the cheese fondue. Can't go wrong for a date, a special occasion, or even to just have some fondue! Come hungry and let your eyes adjust.

    Service and food blows Signature Room & 4 Seasons out of the park! About $100 for 2 but worth it for the atmosphere, service, & food! Very romantic! Coat check & $10 valet available too! Will b back

    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!!

    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.

    The atmosphere is amazing dim lights and cozy. The food has made it one of my favorite restaurants, it's simple but delicious and the concept is so much fun.

    This classic fondue restaurant is a favorite for dates. Order a bottle of wine and dip by candlelight to the sounds of a flamenco guitarist. Read more

    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.

    Super cute little place! Lots of fun to cook your own food and you can never go wrong with melted cheese or flaming chocolate.

    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

    This place is a great find, and they have a good Groupon deal! It's old school, romantic, dark, and delish. Good wine selection, too!

    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

    Super cozy! The best dinner foods are scallops w/butter and potatoes with dill. Get the full meal with cheese and dessert, you will not be disappointed!

    Truly un-American dining in the wonderful city of Chicago. Although not directly in downtown it is easy to get there even without a car. Take bus 22 (Clark) north and get out at the Lincoln Park zoo.

    Cheese is by far the best! Go for the cheese and chocolate, skip the main me, you'll be full.

    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.

    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.
