Diner Reviews
  • "We are always greeted as if we are "family". We love their "Med" food and can always find a great and affordable wine on their wine list. Weekends, the place is hopping and then during the week you can find a more quiet atmosphere if that is what you are looking for. It's in our neighborhood (walking distance) so it is our go-to place for a wonderful and enjoyable meal."

  • "While excellent, it is expensive and almost too much to eat."

  • "Me Jana is our favortie Lebanese/Middle Eastern restaurant in the area. The food and service is always very good, and their whole Branzino is a particular favorite of ours."

  • "The waitress was not knowledgeable, the person who served the food did not take the time to make sure it went to the right person he just sat it down and left, the portions were small for the price, and I was not overly impressed with the meal. Over all I would not go back again."

  • "As someone who has been to Lebanon, it did not live up to standards."

  • "Met a friend for early Saturday dinner. We enjoyed sharing a cluster of small plates. We enjoyed the subtle seasonings. Each plater was a little Lebanese journey. We even opted for dessert, which we usually skip. Our servers were top notch. When we arrived around 6 PM on Saturday, the noise level was low but when we finished and Me Jana was full, the noise was quite lively, as was the crowd. Most enjoyable for early dinner."

  • "We went to MeJana for our Rehearsal Dinner. It was a busy Friday night and even though we were very late for our reservation they were very accommodating. The food was amazing, we had the prix fixe menu and there was plenty of food for everyone to share. Some might not think of MeJana as a place for large parties but we certainly did and would not change anything about that night. Well, the service was a bit slow but again it was a hectic Friday night and as long as we had great food we really did not mind the rest."

  • "We tried multiple small plates, and shared them amongst the four of us. Unanimously, everyone enjoyed Thx food and our evening."

  • "I had heard such great things about Me Jana and could not wait to try it out. The service was excellent and the waiter most accommodating and helpful. That said, I was disappointed in the food. We only ordered three dishes for the two of us. The hot cheese was outstanding. However, the falafel was over cooked and dried out and the egg plant not very tasty though plentiful."

  • "My biggest, in fact, my only gripe with my experience at Me Jana was the wait. They should not be accepting reservations if they don't plan to honor them. We arrived on time for our 8:00 reservation on a Saturday and were seated at 9:00. Our mood was soured by the long standing in the cramped entryway and while the food was good, it didn't make up for the delay."

  • "Everything was well-seasoned, fresh, and delicious. The belly dancer was a bit of a distraction, and seemed more suitable for the later hours, but I appreciated that she would only do one song at a time, and then we'd have respite. Really great, refined food."

  • "The food here was fantastic. We got the Mejana Sampler for 2 which had samples of a bunch of different mezza and all of it was some of the best I've had. Right now I'm scheming about how I can get more of their tabbouleh."

  • "I have never eaten Lebanese food before. My wife however has, and she suggested we try it out at Me Jana. It was great! I cannot say that it was "authentic", but my wife said that it was so I am going to go with her opinion. The service was attentive and patient with me as a novice, making suggestions and praising the choices. I recommend Me Jana to everyone."

  • "Enjoyed the mezzas for two. Was plenty to share with bread. The Lebanese wine was excellent. Much better than a heavy cab."

  • "The food was delish. My friend and I had the mezza sampler and that was the right way to go. The manager came over to make sure we were having a good experience which was a nice touch since it was my first time there. My only gripes are that where I sat there was no view (I was looking at the wall) and I didnt know there was parking right next door so I parked a few blocks away. So now I know there is parking and to get a better seat :)"

  • "Great food, especially lamb chops and eggplant. Good to share. Wonderful service- I especially appreciated the waiter teling us (party of 6) that the bill included the tip."

  • "This was top notch. I had reserved a table for valentines day for my girlfriend and I. The host and servers were very friendly. It is a family owned business. The food was great, we ordered too much. The portions are filling. I ordered the shrimp and my girlfriend and I share a sampler. There is free parking in the lower level. We found out after the leaving from the owner. He also gave me a hug and my girlfriend a kiss and said come back! lol We will!"

  • "This was our 4-5th visit to Me Jana. The menu is varied, with a large varieties of cold and warm mezza, all of which are delicious, and easy to shrare btw 2-3 people. The staff is extremely gracious, know the menu, are happy to make suggestions, and allow time to pace the arrival of your food. It's lovely to go to a restaurant, where you eat what you want, it's superbly seasoned, and well portioned."

  • "We had a 7:30 valentine's night appointment but with the snow storm the previous day traffic was bad and so we called and told them we will be 15 mins late. We got there at 7:50 and the guy exclaim that s we're "coming at 8 for a 7:30 appointment". We let it slide. We get a good table in the corner. We picked the valentine's menu. The appetizers were good. But the mixed grill was not cooked medium-well the way we wanted. The lamb was medium/medium-rare. The chicken seemed like it was pre-cooked and just heated up prior to serving. The portion sizes were good, so no complaints there. Dessert was also good. Overall it was not a bad valentine's dinner, it's just the quality could have been a bit better. We would still go there again."

  • "Understand February 14th is a busy day, but we felt rushed and crammed in. Ordered 6-7 items, asked that they be brought out in order only a few at a time. Everything came out at once, very little room on the table to eat."

  • "I explained to the greeter that I was there for a 6:30 reservation and that my husband was parking the car. He quickly said, Does he know about the parking garage with free parking?" And then he followed me out side to flag my husband down to tell him where to park. AND it was cold and he didn't have a coat on! I have never had such GREAT service! And it only got better! The food was great, so was the service (and VERY friendly too!) and we love the atmosphere of the place. This is a GREAT find. We WILL be back!"

  • "This little hidden gem was perfect for a long, slow dinner while catching up with an old friend. They didn't rush us, and we were able to enjoy scotch, appetizers and our meal. We had tapas style food, all of which was tasty and authentic (falafel is great here!). They are a little pricey, but it's worth it."

  • "I went to dinner during restaurant week in order to get a little taste of a couple of items. We were greeted instantly, had great service and the food was delicious! ( Highly recommend the Lamb Shank). It was a lot of food and I left very full."
    Dined on 1/13/2014
  • "Let's face it Me Jana has great food but it's very pricey. The prices are doable during Restaurant Week but if they want more business on a regular basis they need to loose some of their dollar signs. Their prices on the regular menu are about 30% too high."
    Dined on 1/19/2014
  • "The food and ambiance and the service was excellent. On the pricier side, but I will definitely go back. The menu is interesting and you'll have options. I had a delicious meal and a good time. Looks like you can eat outside when the weather is nice and group outing would probably work out just fine too. Located on the corner of Clarendon Blvd and N Adams"

  • "Perfect location 1 block to AMC Courthouse movie theater for pre-movie dinner. We shared the small plates (mezze) and all were tasty but the kibbeh was particularly good. The service was quick and attentive. Restaurant is on the small side so definitely make a reservation. This was my first time and will definitely go back."

  • "The restaurant is nicely decorated and the staff are friendly. I ordered two warm mezza (small) plates, the lamb shank and the salmon and both were very good. My date ordered the mixed grill, which he enjoyed. It came with three different meats. For dessert we had baklava, which was misspelled on the menu "baklawa." I found that irritating because it's such a silly mistake that should have been corrected since it's a nice spot. Baklava can be made different ways, and their's is on the dry side, not a problem for those who prefer it that way. I've had it lathered in honey or at least drizzled with honey. I ordered the Mango Mojito which was alright - it didn't taste that mango-y. I recommend this spot. It's a great choice for a date."

  • "This was my second time at Mejana. The seating this time was in a busier part of the restaurant and we were next to a big group, so the noise level was quite high. The service was excellent. My friend and I shared four mezze which was more than adequate In terms of amount of food. The feta salad was particularly delicious."
    Dined on 1/15/2014
  • "AND IT WAS EXCELLENT. THE SERVICES WAS VERY GOOD. THE RESTAURANT WAS FULL OF PEOPLE. SO WHEN YOU SEE A RESTAURANT FULLED THEN YOU KNOW THE FOOD MUST BE GOOD. MANAGEMENT IS VERY PERSONABLE WITH PEOPLE. AND THAT GOES OVER VERY WELL. I TOOK MY NEICE FROM NEW YORK AND SHE WAS IMPRESS."

  • "Although owner / manager was (initially) a little creepy on the phone (after calling 30mins in advance to say we were going to be 10mins late) ~ and we were ~ the staff was attentive (although slightly crude), the menu was great and food excellent. By the way, after you struggle with finding a parking spot a few blocks away - the staff will inform you they've a parking lot with plenty of room across the street."

  • "This was a great experience for an early NYE dinner. I made the res the day before - no problem. Before 9 they had a la carte and no prix fixe which is great because my boyfriend and I don't eat meat and my other friend doesn't eat gluten. The food was great and started coming out pretty fast. It was really energetic and busier than usual because it was NYE--i've been there several other times and it hasn't been as bustling. The service was good in that everyone was friendly but usually the service here is EXCELLENT. Probably because it was busier than normal service was a bit more of a struggle. Either way the experience was great, food was great and I would definitely recommend for NYE or any other dinner. Calamari is FANTASTIC"

  • "Of the dishes I tried one was better and the other one was worse, than the one I had at the Lebanese Taverna. I missed what is a feature of the Lebanese Taverna, the warm bread and the oil to dip it in served, as soon as you arrive. In this restaurant you have to aske for this items, they arrive only when the food is served, and they do not provide the oil to dip the bread in. Cheap."

  • "This was my third time to this restaurant! I love the atmosphere and the outdoor dining is unbeatable. The food is excellent, but this is the second time I have had less than great service! While the waitress came over to ask how things were, she never refilled the water glasses or asked me if I wanted more iced tea! This is basic and should not be overlooked. I love this place and just hope they train their servers on the details."

  • "This is where I go when I don't want to entertain at home. The food is always good and service is too. It can get loud but not so loud that you can't hear one another. My friends enjoyed this as much as I did. Oh, the zucchini fritters are incredible. But the same can't be said for the Lebanese wine."
