Me Jana never fails to impress us. The flavors of the food, while authentically Lebanese, are more heightened somehow. We eat a lot of Lebanese food and this is by far the best one in the area. Staff is attentive and friendly, portions are generous. It’s a bit pricey so not an everyday place, but always special.
And as an added bonus, they will validate your parking ticket from the garage next door on Adams St, so always have free parking.

Food was excellent. Split a number of appetizers amongst the group for starters and entrees. Some in the group still had room for full size plates, the rest ordered more appetizers. Leave room for dessert and coffee.

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.
