Me Jana was recommended by a Lebanese friend, and it didn't disappoint. The food and the service were both excellent. Our waiter patiently explained the dishes we weren't familiar with and was most attentive throughout the meal. Our orders arrived promptly at a perfect pace between courses.
It's definitely a restaurant worth returning to.

The food was authentic Lebanese and quite good. The service was excellent. Meals are fairly priced. However, the restaurant is very loud, not the place to go if you want to want to carry on a private conversation.

We had a friendly business dinner at Me Jana on Saturday evening. They seated the 8 of us at a round table - perfect for ensuring we were all able to participate in the conversation! They worked with us on the food concerns (dietary restrictions and allergies) without pause, and we enjoyed all of the dishes. There was so much, we couldn't finish it all. Our server, Cassey, was very accommodating without hovering. While it was loud in the restaurant, we were there for prime dinner time, and we certainly contributed to the noise level. If you like Lebanese fare, this is a great local place!

We had dinner on Valentines Day. This was our third visit to Me Jana in the last 12 months. This visit topped all previous visits by far. We were seated immediately as we arrived which was a few minutes before our reservation time. We ordered seafood dishes from the regular dinner menu. Food was delicious. The Lebanese Cabernet was perfect with our meal. Service was attentive even though the place was completely full. Special thanks to Riya our main server. She greeted us with a smile and a rose for my wife. She was always cheerful and eager to serve. She never seemed to busy or inconvenienced to answer our questions about the menu. She made great recommendations. We never felt rushed. The place was noisy but did not distract my wife and me from nice conversation. Will be back without question.

Went on valentine day for dinner. Tables are extremely small, leaving very small room for intimate conversation or laying of platters of the food. The food was mediocre but acceptable. It seems an attempt to bring Lebanese modern approach but missed the authenticity of the real flavors of Lebanese food. Service was good in terms of honoring our reservation and I'd say if this is not a 'once in a lifetime visit' than you will not be disappointed. again, tables are way to small to accommodate the dishes so you feel very cramped, in my opinion.

This is a nice place. The service was outstanding, beginning with a very warm welcome, and despite staff trying to sell us a $75 bottle of wine. Our server was fantastic in every regard. The food was good.. and im eating my leftovers now. Having said that, there is better Lebanese food in town and I'll more often go elsewhere. However, if I'm in the neighborhhood, I would not say no. It's a good place. Decor is nice also but booths are a bit uncomfortable in that they sit up too straight.

Food was good - not great. Basically what you'd expect for the price range. That being said, at every point during our meal, we felt like we were being rushed out of the restaurant. The main entree (a platter which had tons of small dishes) came out within minutes of us ordering it, and definitely was pre-made/not fresh. At multiple points throughout our meal, we were asked if we were still "working on our plates", when it was very clear we were still eating. At the end, our check was brought out unprompted while we were eating dessert and finishing our wine, and within minutes the waitress came over and asked if we had put our cards in the bill for her to take away. Overall the staff felt very unwelcoming and rushed, and it made for a very negative experience.

One of our favorite restaurants in the DC/NoVA area. Rahbi and Khalil run a fantastic operation, and the dining experience is great from start to finish! We used to live around the corner, so the only negative aspect that I can think of, regarding Me Jana, is that my wife and I don’t get there as often as we would like, or we used to go.

Service was outstanding from start to finish. We were greeted warmly when we arrived and helped into our coats when we left. Our server was informative, attentive, and obviously a true professional. I came for the food and will return, regularly, because of the service (ok, and the wine). Thank you!

Strawberry ice cream was old and berries had become sticky and gummy

Wife’s Birthday. We had the $52 fixed menu that included 4-5 appetizers and a mixed grill and lamb chops. Expensive but worth it. The co-owner came by to say welcome and sat down for a few minutes. Nice touch. I can see why it was crowded good community support.
