We learned about MeJana from a friend who lives near the restaurant and we have been going back ever since. Our most recent visit was similar to all of our other visits in that the service was outstanding, the food was delicious and reasonably priced and our table was ready when promised. What is not to like? We will be back soon.

Always delicious. We decided to have a meal of appetizers and so sampled a lot of the menu. Standouts were the haloumi cheese with watermelon, stuffed zucchini, and falafel. Oh the falafel! So crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. The only dish we wouldn’t get again is zucchini patties. A bit too mushy for our tastes. Service was efficient without being hurried. Me Jana never disappoints.

We frequently dine at Me Jana and always have a consistent experience. The food is deliciously prepared and the service is attentive and friendly. The owner makes us feel like family. Is there any reason we do not coming back?

I love MeJana. Always delicious. Great flavors. The watermelon halloumi date is delicious, kebabs are great, definitely get the three dip sampler, even the rice is yummy.

Our server Karen was exceptionally helpful- very knowledgeable of the menu and able to answer many questions; she was also personable, polite and gracious- all eight of us were delighted with her care and of course our meals were delicious.

There are better Mediterranean restaurants around, but this place is fine. The Lebanese wine was good, as was my friend’s mango mojito. The portions of the dip sampler were way too small for the price.

Very disappointing experience overall over expensive for the quality of food and service. Quality is not what it used to be. I am Lebanese and this does not taste like food from back home! Portions were too small and the main dish mixed grill was over cooked! And the prices? Ridiculous?!!! They must be taking the clientele for fools no wonder no locals were dining there
I was not happy with the experience and will not be going back.

Me Jana is an excellent Lebanese restaurant with spreads, breads and salad so fresh and flavorful that when I want baba ghanouj (with a bit of pomegranate), hummus, watermelon/feta salad, or, best of all, lamb chops, I go nowhere else. The restaurant is pretty and quiet in a friendly way. Service is respectful, slightly formal for a change, and responsive. Don’t forget the mint tea, baklava and puffy, warm bread! Just go there!

Had dinner with friends at Me Jana recently after a movie at Court House. Wonderful atmosphere, with seating inside and out. We chose to dine inside and were given a banquette at the front window. It was spacious and had several pouffy pillows to make it extra comfortable. Service was prompt and friendly, and the menu had myriad selections, small and large, of delicious Greek-style dishes. The pita bread came warm and soft with hummus and olives. The salad dressing had a lovely touch of mint. There are some great lamb selections but we all chose seafood -- shrimp kabobs and the salmon steak special, which also came with shrimp. It was succulent and bursting with garlic flavor. Our server recommended a good wine to accompany the meal. All in all, a very pleasant experience.

Everything was tasty. Recommend the muhamarra and baba ganoush apps. The bronzino was very good, and the shrimp kabob was one of the best I’ve ever had.

When the other person in my party arrived it turned out they also had made a reservation. When I tried communicating this to the woman at the front of house, a man, who turned out to be our waiter, cut me off mid-sentence and briskly said, “This way” and without waiting began walking to the dining area. The other person with me had a sprained ankle and the waiter was walking several yards ahead and seemed annoyed waiting for us to get back to where he was seating us - in the very back corner of the restaurant, which I noticed looked to only be about 1/4 full. The remainder of the meal the waiter was very rude and made long sighs and no eye contact when he didn’t approve of our order. He actually exclaimed, “What?!” when we said we were going to order an appetizer and split a $30 kebab dish. He didn’t ask if we wanted desert, he put the dessert menu in front of us at a very inappropriate time in our conversation, and it was the body language and drama that he did it with that communicated aggression and that we weren’t respected. I was in shock. I’ve never had this happen before. There was pressure to order the most expensive entrees earlier and when I told him dessert wasn’t going to work since there were no dairy and gluten free options on the menu, he didn’t say a word. He grabbed the menus and walked away. We paid around $54 for 2 people, including tip, and the food was okay, but nowhere near justifying the price, even with it being a more upscale area of Arlington. The rude service and pressure was so over the top I will never go to MeJana again.

The Lebanese Journey was quite the journey. Great food, solid value. I feel like the service always seemed confused by how to arrange dishes for our large (8 person) group. Didn't seem like they had ever done this, which was frustrating for shared plates. Overall, food and wine were great though

Me Jana is one of our favorite restaurants in Arlington, and the best Lebanese restaurant in the area, IMHO. Their food is so good. The one complaint I would have from this visit is that we felt rushed by the server, to take our plates before we were done, and to take the bill. There wasn't anyone waiting for our table. Also the AC was on pretty high, so bring an extra layer.

Warmly greeted at the door, we were seated at a comfortable table in a tastefully decorated dining room. Service was friendly and attentive without hovering, the menu was rewardingly Lebanese, and the dishes we ordered were authentically and expertly prepared. Dessert pastries were freshly baked in-house. When the bill came, it contained no surprises and all seemed reasonably priced. The owner stopped by to chat and to make sure all was to our liking, and wished us well as we left. We’ll definitely return.

It is a favorite of ours, with both a traditional and eclectic menu. The Halloumi Watermelon is to die-for. Service is always genial, attentive and natural, much like going to a relative's home rather than a restaurant. For dinner, highly recommend the scallops but exercise caution -- or you can find yourself devouring the entire list of delicious appetizers. Highly recommend!

The food and service at MeJana were outstanding. Lovely place, indoor and outdoor seating. We had a large party (10) and ordered tons of stuff. We even asked the chef to make us something not on the menu, and he came through brilliantly. Everything was perfectly prepared, flavorful and delicious. My only complaint was that I thought the Hummus was a bit bland, but really that's nitpicking. This has become our new favorite Lebanese restaurant, we will be back.
