The food tasted amazing and the service was wonderful. I love the rich flavors, I got the lamb kebab in medium rare and it was perfect!

Fantastic! Delicious food and superior customer service. I am especially a fan of their tender beef kabobs! Nice atmosphere and easy parking as well. A favorite!

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.

Great food and superlative service. Feels like a place where everyone knows your name. We just wish the cocktails were a little better - both of ours tasted watery and bitter.

This is one of my favorite restaurants for good Mediterranean food. We like to order our own Mezze based on the many cold and warm appetizers on the menu. The babaganoush is fantastic, lamb shoulder succulent, and they bring copious supplies of beautiful warm fresh pita bread. The tabouleh with quinoa is my favorite! If you are gluten sensitive or prefer vegan or vegetarian foods, this is a great place for you. There are many dishes to satisfy carnivores as well. We paired everything with a light Lebanese rose wine. Ample outdoor seating is great during certain times of the year. Reservations are a good idea. Parking in an underground garage is validated and free.

The food is always excellent, and while the staff is wonderful, this Particular visit with our friends was above and beyond! We have enjoyed every dish we’ve tried, and often times will just order one dinner to share along with a few of our favorite appetizers.

We had great service as well as food ( and wine ). The menu is a bit overwhelming for a first time visit which means gladly more visits in the future. The special was sea bass over mashed potatoes and spinich. Not what you would expect at a Lebanese restaurant, but hey, ours was done to perfection ( and would order it again )

Overall, a good experience. We had the salmon for a main course, baba ghanoush, and spinach pies for appetizers. I thought all three dishes were good and tasty. We were also given pita with zaatar and cheese to start the meal, which was nice. Service was a bit spotty. Waiter did not come around too often. Overall, I thought it was a good restaurant.

Great location in Arlington and very good service. The food was uniformly good but not great. While not advertised that way the menu was oriented towards more of a small plate approach and that wasn't what I was looking for.

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.

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.
