Best Lebanese food in the Washington DC area. Lebanese food is often neglected in the food scene, and restaurants like Me Jana belong in the list of top restaurants in all of the area.

Went with friends who, like us, had previously eaten at MeJana more than once before. While the restaurant was fully occupied, it was easy to carry on a conversation. Hummus with their wonderful puffed bread is very good as is the grilled calamari which we all shared. My wife and I both had the whole Branzino which is always excellent and is totally free of bones (the restaurant purchases them that way), and our friends enjoyed the mixed grill and the shrimp kebab. The baklava was a nice finish to a good meal.

First time here. For lunch
This was a good mid-point for both of us to travel. Nice place. “Open” areas and dining room
Maittre d’ was pleasant and very welcoming.
Waitress was very pleasant as well and checked on me twice before my guest arrived.
As only 2 people, we stuck with the sandwiches.
1 chicken shawarma and 1 lamb shoulder sandwich; one with special french fries and one with salad. All were quite tasty! Amount of food was adequate for lunch, too.

We both thought it was quite good. Dinner menu presents more options and dishes, so we shall see about next time.

If you live in the Court House area, then this a restaurant you will probably try eventually.

Thanks

I took my mother there for her birthday and we had a wonderful time! Could actually hear one another and the staff were so nice and conversant, not rushing us. Highly recommend!

Excellent service and excellent food. Grilled calamari were particularly good. Appetizer portions were larger than expected so had to take some home, but enjoyed it very much.

I celebrated my wife's birthday at MeJana. Manager Hamid, Sarah and Karen were GREAT. Interesting menu, wonderful meal that was perfectly served by our waitress, Sarah, who also filled us in on the local community. The food was absolutely wonderful, from preparation to presentation, very pleasing. The food was fresh, properly prepared and a great value for the price. We highly recommend it. We will have many more meals at your restaurant. Thank you.

A neighborhood jewel serving authentic Lebanese food that is extremely healthy. It is classically the “Mediterranean Diet”.

Service was quick and friendly. Handled our party of seven very well for a business lunch. Food was liked by all, especially enjoyed by those who had the salmon steak special on the menu that day. Easily accommodated a special substitution request on one meal. Look forward to going back for dinner in the future and trying our other dishes on the menu!

This was our first time at MeJana. Our gluten-free friend appreciated the gluten-free menu. She ordered the scallops and enjoyed them. My husband ordered the salmon steak special with shrimp and enjoyed that, even though there were a few bones. They both loved the risotto that came with their dishes. My salmon filet was cooked to my liking (medium rare). The service was efficient and friendly and the place was cozy and pleasant to relax in. My friend and her boyfriend were very pleased with the restaurant and vowed to return.

We couldn't have asked for more--the food was fresh, beautifully prepared and served. The service and ambiance were both outstanding. What a great discovery. We liked it so much that we're planning to return soon, even though it's a bit of a hike from where we live in Maryland.

Mejana has some of the best food of any place in the DMV. We had great Fatoush salad, humus, babaganoush and assorted other stuff. I'm not middle eastern but love the food. I had a branzino that was so good I wanted to order another to take home. the price point is excellent too especially for Arlington which has nothing but overpriced restaurants! Love Mejana.

I posted this on my Facebook wall so my friends and see. Copy and pasted.

If you happen to be in Arlington area, make sure you eat at this Lebanese restaurant. Been here before 10 years ago and as usual the food and service were excellent. Ten years later I was not disappointed (booked a birthday dinner for Luke).
Keep it up owner, management and staff.

PS. The menu price may have changed.
