- Delicious and flavorful!OpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 8/16/2014Excellent Lebanese food. We particularly loved the cheese with pears and dates and the fish entrees. Excellent service as well!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- Great!OpenTable Diner Since 2011Dined on 8/12/2014Sat outside and enjoyed a delicious meal (restaurant week- sea bass- YUM!) with a great server. We'll be back!Special Features:
- AngelaDined on 8/12/2014Absolutely fantastic food, service, and really nice music. Very relaxing dining. Kudos to the chef.Special Features:
- Great Arlington RestaurantGlobetrotterVIPDined on 8/2/2014Me Jana is a very good Arlington restaurant. The quality of the food and staff is always exceptional. I enjoy fine dining and have hit most of the Washingtonian Top 100 and many nice places around the world. Me Jana is a good, consistent, casual restaurant and always delivers!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great service and foodAnniepooDined on 8/2/2014I went to Me Jana with a party of 8. We had great food service, and white sangrias. My only complaint was that the music was too loud. The restaurant wasn't full either so the volume should have been a little lower. It was difficult to hear the person just 3 seats down.Special Features:
- Dinner VisitMikeDined on 8/1/2014Had a very pleasant evening, good service and good food.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Fantastic Lebanese FoodJames2220Dined on 7/31/2014My girlfriend and I went to this restaurant for the first time last week. We were absolutely astounded by the quality of the food and the quality of the service. The food was the absolutely best Lebanese food that I have ever had. The service was a perfect mix of attentiveness and explanation about the food without becoming overbearing or intrusive on our dinner. We will definitely be coming back on many an occasion.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Wonderful!GoNatsDined on 7/25/2014Wonderful food, service, and outdoor seating!! We had a wonderful experience and would most definitely dine in again!Special Features:
- Third time not like the FirstLoveDiningVIPDined on 7/23/2014I ate at Me Jana three times. The first time I went for lunch and had the sea bass. It was PERFECT. The taste and the presentation were impeccable. The second time I went for dinner and again had the sea bass. It didn't seem to be the same dish. Part of the fish actually tasted fishy and the presentation was definitely off. The third time I went was today for lunch. I won't be returning. While the sea bass was definitely better it was not the same as the first. Again parts of fish had a slightly fishy taste. The presentation was sloppy. Also at lunch as a single woman diner I was sat at a corner table by the window for two. However both times when a single male diner came in after me he was put in a booth. My lunch server was pleasant.
- Solid Lunch OptionOpenTable Diner Since 2009VIPDined on 7/22/2014Our group of seven enjoyed lunch at Mi Jana. All dishes came out at the same time and were perfectly prepared. Highly recommend starting with the grape leaves.Special Features:
- Another pleasant place in ClarendonVRfromTROYDined on 7/20/2014The expected Levantine fare: shwarma, hummus, falafel, etc. Of course, they have kebabs and branzino. No revelations, but everything was solid and reliable. First time in my life I tried Arak, which is a Levantine vodka infused with anice. It is supposed to be diluted by water 2:1 and after that takes milky appearance. Sitting on the sidewalk was a quiet treat. We came Sunday night, and the place was half-empty, and so were the streets. The waitresses were attentive, like almost everywhere in America, too attentive. When you are beyond the toddler's stage, you do not need to be checked upon every 10 minutes (as a compensation, the food is almost always fresh and you are in almost no danger that the waiters would get fresh with you).Special Features:
- Mediocre All-AroundWillDined on 7/12/2014*We had all small plates (mezze), so I can't speak for the large entree portions*. Food was flavorful, but menu was not as robust as expected for a higher-end restaurant featuring small plates. Wine list had a nice range of geographies and price points. Service was lackluster; we usually ask the server for recommendations at nicer tapas/mezze restaurants, but he wasn't around enough to do so. Unfortunately we won't be going back, but this place is worth a shot since we may have gotten unlucky with our server and ordered the wrong dishes. We also sat inside, and the outdoor area looked nice for a less humid evening.Special Features:
- comfortable and classywularDined on 7/9/2014We had a group of about eight. They had a table ready for us and brought out the appetizers and brought out a plate of dates, which was a nice touch since we were fasting. The portions look small, but they are very filling - and that's coming from those of us who hadn't eaten all day. We all left full. Ordering several appetizers, such as hummus/tabouleh/labneh/cheese rolls and then one main dish each was sufficient. The shawerma comes in four circular sandwiches and they are super filling, after three I was pretty full. For dessert, we got the achta, kind of pudding with pastry and banana, it's good but also filling, so if you had a heavy dinner it's best to split it with someone. We also got the mint tea and felt like we were at home.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Service fee charged is too highOmar2VIPDined on 7/4/2014The service fee to be charged should be kept at the discretion of the clientele & not the management of the restaurant based on the service provided which is a fair recommended practice by all all restaurants.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Consistently GreatVirginiaBeachFriendsDined on 7/4/2014We have been going to Me Jana for many years, maybe 3 or 4 times a month while living in the Washington metropolitan area, and haven't been disappointed yet. the food and service is outstanding, and the atmosphere gives you the feeling that you are in their home. Now that we are living out of town part time, getting to have dinner at Me Jana is always a priority for us.Special Features:
- Perfect for lunchMumbaiVIPDined on 7/3/2014I'll be back. Feel I found a new favorite. Terrific sea bass. Fresh. Clean. Healthy. Great baklava and Turkish coffee.Special Features:
- food yummy, service friendlyeatemupDined on 6/28/2014The owner and wait staff treat you like old friends here - in a good way. Took my family there and there was lots that everyone enjoyed, even the teenagers. Really good, solid Lebanese food (if you're not familiar with this cuisine, it is very similar to Greek). We had the mezza and they were delicious.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- MMA65Dined on 6/21/2014Never disappointing. I have been there with many different people of all ages and they have all enjoyed the experience and the foodSpecial Features:
- Great lunch spotOpenTable Diner Since 2011Dined on 6/20/2014The noise level received an "elevated" rating since our table of five was outside (our choice). The meza options are always unresistable (today we tried the labneh, hummus and grilled haloumi cheese) and I can't resist their garlic whip, which I asked to be doubled and introduced my other guests to as well. The chicken shawarma sandwich is a standby—four of our party of five ordered it today! Our waitress was very accommodating of our staggered arrivals and was efficiently and pleasantly attentive to our every request.Special Features:
- Second Visit...MissMaryDined on 6/13/2014This was my second visit to Me Jana, so we already knew the food would be good. (My friend loves Lebanese cuisine!) However, when our waiter realized that we would only be ordering one "tapas"-size dish each, and no drinks, although we did get dessert and a cappuccino at the end of our meal, he seemed to not be interested in waiting on us. There was a large party that came in during our time there, and he seemed very keen on waiting upon them instead. Again, such things do not go unnoticed. Be careful -- we can always go to Lebanese Taverna instead!Special Features:
- Dinner before Wolf TrapFoodofileFrankVIPDined on 6/13/2014Me Jana was just opening when we arrived. The hostess forgot to mark me as an Open Table diner, so initially I received a "no show" status for the reservation. Mil and I shared six mezze, from grape leaves, falafel, sujok, to spinach pie...typical middle eastern fare, served and prepared very well.I would recommend this to a friend.
- yummmmmmmmmmmmyumDined on 6/11/2014Delicious food....just had to wait too long because of a catering a head of usSpecial Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great DinnerJessJessDined on 6/7/2014Visited for my bday and we really enjoyed it. Food was very fresh and tasty. Service was very attentive, as usual. I loves the fresh mint tea, lamb chops and ayare. If there is a downside, it would have to be the booth where we sat. The width of seat is a bit small so it was hard for me to sit back and relax. It felt like I was at the edge of the seat. I would probably ask for another seat next time. Overall, the dining experience was great.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Consistently DeliciousFoodie2014Dined on 6/5/2014Have been to Me Jana on numerous occasions. Recommend the cilantro shrimp, hummus and baklava.Special Features:
- Another great dinnerArlFoodieDined on 5/25/2014We live in the neighborhood and dine at Me Jana regularly--the food is consistently delicious, and the service is efficient and friendly. Try the fatteh, the lahem be adjeen, and the ablama.Special Features:

- My favorite go-to placeOpenTable Diner Since 2004VIPDined on 4/24/2014Me Jana is nearby and is where I bring friends for good food and good service knowing it is possible to talk without shouting. This is also where I go when I don't feel like cooking - and have done so since they opened. The quality of the food has been consistently very good. Service is always good too. Put this on your 'must try' list and make it a point to go soon.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- great restaurantOpenTable Diner Since 2012Dined on 4/16/2014went there for a business lunch with client who is located right next door. convenient, good food and service. reasonably priced.
- Don't Order the Prix Fix DinnerMikeVIPDined on 4/12/2014While excellent, it is expensive and almost too much to eat.I would recommend this to a friend.
- Always goodNoVaDaveVIPDined on 4/12/2014Me 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.Special Features:
- Not as good as I had expectedAngelaDined on 4/12/2014The 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.
- A GemliveindcDined on 4/11/2014We 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.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- As someone who has been toLogdenVIPDined on 4/11/2014As someone who has been to Lebanon, it did not live up to standards.
- Neighborhood SurpriseNewYearsFriendsDined on 4/5/2014Met 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.Special Features:
