    It was a rip-off. Wouldn't go there again or recommend this place to others. **Positives:** 1. The service was great. Fast, timely, and cordial 2. We don't drink alcohol. So we were offered free cocktails instead of the Champaign. In other words, we overpaid likely however I appreciate their consideration to offer free drinks against their "Valentine's day restricted menu" **Negatives:** 1. **Too expensive** : I booked a reservation for 02/14 and they had given me the "Valentine's day menu" for which I had to pay $75/person + 10% tax +20% tip by default. So the bill was $195 for 2 of us. Why am I complaining? They never informed on OpenTable or their website or the text messages for reservation that I do not get the regular menu and I had to choose only from their restricted "Valentine's day menu" 2. **Too Limited options and Inconsiderate Chef:** And as a vegetarian that doesn't eat mushrooms (sorry, there are a lot of idiots like me where I come from), I couldn't eat their only vegetarian main course option available. When requested for other options, I was given NONE (Although, I overheard the chef providing a choice of take out menu items available to my neighbor table). I ended up chosing two starters as opposed to one starter and one main course. 3. **Taste**:The food offered to us was at best okay. My wife and I had been to 10 other Mediterranean restaurants in DMV area. We would place Me Jana at the bottom of the list without a doubt. Although I'd argue that it's only because we had to eat the limited dumb options from the Valentine's day menu. I would guess their regular food is probably way better. 4. **Presentation**: presentation of the food was diner-like. Not bad. But not worth paying $97.5 per person either. 5. **Ambience and Environment :** I didn't really feel that we were having a Valentine's day dinner as we were sat close to two families dining with their kids and it wasn't quiet or pleasant, let alone romantic.

    Was okay, the food wasn’t bad, we were assigned for small table in the corner, we asked to be seated in one of the table by the window, they said we can’t, the other table is reserved, and no one comes for any of these nice tables, I expected a better service and better experience than this.

    Food was very tasty and presented well. Waiter helpful and prepared. Menu a bit pricey. We decided to skip appetizers because thought they were too expensive. To be mostly spreads out of some jars and flat bread $10+ each seemed too much. We did no order wine.

    My husband and I with a couple of friends had dinner at MeJana for the first time and we were impressed by the food, service and ambiance. The place was packed on a Friday evening, and we enjoyed everything we ordered. Our server had a big smile and was very attentive. We were definitely not rushed, but we would have preferred to get the main dish after we finished our appetizers. Nevertheless, I would still give this restaurant big stars, and will go back!

    As always, MeJana was delightful! Went for a family dinner and had a wonderful time. The cocktails and mocktails were great, and the kibbeh, kafta, chicken skewers, octopus, celery root stew, and haloumi cheese with watermelon were fabulous. We all had the best time trying each other's dishes. The wait staff are the best--friendly, attentive, and professional.

    I visited this place last year for lunch and the quality of the food WAS amazing. Today I went for dinner and I was so disappointed. I don’t understand if the administration changed but the food was really bad. I ordered beef shawarma and got fajitas. The meat was over cooked not tender. My friend got kafta and it was dried with no flavor. I paid $190, after adding 20% tips without knowing that they included 20% for service without even asking me or informing. So ended up tipping 40% without being aware. I’m not going back!

    Food was not good! Ordered our meal which was several shared plates and the items came out in less than 5 minutes (not exaggerating) - how could they have possibly prepared all of our items (most of which were warm appetizers) that quickly? They do validate parking

    Venue and ambience were really very nice. Service and wait staff were outstanding! Food was definitely delicious but portions were very small for the price, especially if you are sharing the appetizers with a small group of friends. Arab culture is a very generous culture, I have traveled all over the Middle East… why not reflect that a little more?

    Best lamb chops I've ever had, though I don't blame you if you go simply to order multiple servings of the baked cheese appetizer with naan. My wife's beef kebab was cooked perfectly. Service great as always. Don't sleep on this place.

    Over priced for the size of the dishes. We were 7, ordered the journey for 4 + lots of side platters that were not in the journey and still came out hungry $700+ after. Ridiculous to say the least. I wont be going there anytime soon
