Fondue
  • Romantic
  • Good for special occasions
  • Charming
For over 59 years, fondue dining at Geja’s Café has been a favorite indulgence for Chicagoans as well as out-of-towners. It’s a perfect way to kindle romance, celebrate a special occasion or simply join family and friends for a fun and unforgettable dining experience.
To start we offer a Swiss Gruyere cheese fondue, served with fresh breads, fruits and vegetables for dipping. Our crisp house salad, dressed with tangy Dijon vinaigrette, offers a counterpoint to the rich, warm cheese fondue appetizer.
Next, you’ll cook your choices of Australian lobster tail, Gulf shrimp, beef tenderloin, fresh sea scallops or boneless chicken breast in a pot of sizzling soybean oil or broth. The main course is served with fresh vegetables and eight gourmet dipping sauces.
Our famous chocolate fondue is flamed table-side, and presented with marshmallows for roasting and other delectable dippers.

A 4 % operational fee is added to all checks to work in concert with Chicago's One Fair Wage Ordinance.

    Love this place, the food and the cozy ambience especially; I've been here multiple times. So much so that I booked a reservation for 1 recently just to come and enjoy both with a good book.

    This was our first visit to Gaja’s and we thoroughly enjoyed it. Everyone was so welcoming. Our server was the best! She patiently guided us through the menu and gave us other tips based on our questions. The ambiance is great, a little dark but not too much and the sound level was quiet. If anything WE were the loud ones! We left happy and absolutely stuffed. Would definately go back!

    We ordered an at-home fondue kit during the pandemic, and ever since our twin daughters have been patiently waiting for their 10th birthday to experience the real deal. Geja’s made their big day extra special and made us all feel welcome.

    Felt constantly rushed with cooking our food by fondue as we were instructed by the wait staff for us to constantly have at least 3 items cooking at the same time or the hot oil would spatter all over the place. We were even rushed between courses. We were expecting a laid-back, romantic experience. Left there feeling full, but not the experience we expected. Really expensive. We've been to more romantic restaurants for less money. Good, fresh food though.

    My wife, 14 year old son, and I came here for dinner. We had the Cheese and Chocolate fondue, and it was delicious. For a minute, we thought maybe we didn't get enough of the items to eat with the cheese, but once the chocolate fondue came out, we realized that we were going to be well fed. All of the staff were very attentive and friendly. It had been years since my wife and I had been here, and it was the first time for our son. We loved every bite!
