Unbelievable food - very tasty every time. Wildly friendly staff. Great wine.

Perfect for a table of shared plates - too many good things on the menu you’ll want to try 🤤

Overall it was OK. I have been to Mejana a few times but it never impresses me enough. I will try one more time perhaps. I like the place and the service was good. The appetizers were good and the chicken kebab was acceptable. Other dishes were somewhat below par. There was a confusion with our order of shrimp kebob (they brought something else) and rather than offering a discount, they added bit and pieces used to substitute what we ordered - not a good policy.

My husband is Palestinian and we have had lot of Middle Eastern food. This was some of the best. I especially recommend the tabbouleh, baba guanouj, and meat pies. The ambiance was warm and peaceful.

Recommend the 'Journey' meal that is pre-fix for appetizers, main course, and desserts, otherwise there is too much to pick from!

Food superb; service exceptional; good value

I've been to Me Jana several times over the last few years for both lunch and for dinner. It's a keeper. Even friends of mine who are not big fans of this style of food love it. Lunch is a particularly great value. The full wine list is a bit limited, but good and none of the bottles overpriced. The service is wonderful -- all the staff are dedicated to giving you a good experience -- they really seem to care. I can recommend virtually every item on the lunch menu, but the dip sampler is a must. My friends and I also really like the various shawarmas. You can order one -- and trust me there will be enough to take home. Lentil soup is fabulous, and any of the salads. The dinner menu is more extensive. Seriously, you cannot go wrong here. It's close to Court House Metro in Arlington; you can park on the street or in the Court House lot (either way, it will cost you to park because it's Arlington).
Me Jana is on my top ten list in Arlington/Falls Church.

We were seated promptly on the beautiful, well-lit outdoor patio. The tables are a decent distance apart and the lighting is soft but bright enough to easily read the menus. Traffic noise was negligent and conversation was easy. The wait staff was attentive but not intrusive. My friend and I enjoyed the arnabit and the halloumi was so delicious and unique. My favorite appetizer of the night was mhamara. So flavorful! I'll definitely be back.

MeJana has the best Lebanese food in the DMV. The service is impeccable. The place looks fabulous inside and out. Every time I eat there even just for lunch is a special occasion. Be sure to try the chicken shawarma all you meat eaters! My guest is a vegan and she was ecstatic over the menu selections and the food.

My friend and I ordered four different hot appetizers, including the hot sampler. My favorite was the stuffed zucchini that was cooked perfectly and the rice was delicious. We also ordered a dessert that was fried cheese covered with pistachios, honey, and rosewater. Everything was really tasty and the service was fantastic. My only qualm is that some of the small plates are a little overpriced but the food is good and the ambience is nice so I still give MeJana 5 stars!

We’ve been to MeJana before, but it’s been a few years since it was consistently in our rotation of restaurants. Happy to say that’s changing now! Given some of the reviews of those who’ve said similar sentiments I was a bit nervous but thrilled to report we had just as wonderful of a time as we did in visits prior.

We had the journey with lamb chops and it was incredible. The food was expertly prepared and tasted great. One table member got the branzino and was floored. It was cooked to absolute perfection. Erwin, our server, was fantastic. Attentive without being overbearing or rushing us. Happily explained each dish and provided two fantastic wine recommendations. Our whole party was thrilled with MeJana and we look forward to returning again.

Good, attentive service but would have been better if wait staff and hostess wore masks, even if vaccinated, in keeping with CDC recommendations. This shows a disregard of your employees and your clientele.
