This dimly lit fondue spot is a reliably romantic date destination. The four-course Prince Geja Combination, while pricey, allows couples a chance to get cozy while experimenting with various dips. A salad starter is followed by the cheese fondue appetizer with bread, grapes and apples. Then, beef tenderloin, chicken breast, lobster tail, jumbo shrimp and sea scallops are brought out to be cooked in the tableside hot oil pot. Be sure to save room for the flaming chocolate fondue dessert.

Romantic, nostalgic, and a piece of Chicago history with the happiest owner ever- he makes each guest feel like they are visiting him R his home


If you love fondue, this is the place to be. Food was great especially the experience. My only criticism is that the place can get too dark. My friends and I were not seated at a both where there was decent lighting.  We were in the middle aisle and we literally had to use our cell phones to read the menu AND look at what we were eating and dipping. I mean even the servers carry a small flashlight to show what was on the platter.  I'm not asking for a spotlight but I do need to read the menu and actually see what I'm eating and what I'm doing.
