Our experience last night was quite good. The service was wonderful. Every server assisted us all evening. The variety of food and tastes were great. We chose to just do warm and cold appetizers to allow us to taste many different things. That was great. Highly recommend this restaurant for Lebanese food.

Food was terrible - hummus tastelss, pita was hard and dry, shrimp dish was floating in water and oul and rubbery- disgusting. The Beef Shawarma was was like boiled bewf, not the traditional misdle eastern dish. Service was non responsive and cocktails were tasteless, very unpleasant and would not recommend this restaurant to anyone

Me Jana is one of our favorite Mediterranean restaurants. Yesterday was our first trip back after the pandemic, and the experience was just OK. I think they still need to work out some kinks to be back to 100%. Service was spotty, but the outdoor atmosphere was lovely so we didn’t care. The appetizers were wonderful - sujok, Mediterranean salad, and halloumi with watermelon. The entrees were just OK. The lamb and beef on the mixed grill was dry, but the chicken was wonderful. We enjoyed some wine, but at $15/glass it was overpriced - they don’t seem to have a less expensive house wine. Next time we go back we will dine on a selection of appetizers and skip the main courses.

First time visiting and the overall experience was great. The food was outstanding and the atmosphere was very nice. Server experience not so much. We were seated upon arrival and had a choice of indoor or patio seating. The person that seated us was also our server, it took her 15 minutes to come back with water and another 10 minutes to come and take our order. That was the last time we saw the server until it was time for the check. Another server who was not assigned to our table provided assistance. I would not let that stop you from visiting this establishment, because if you have time it is a nice way to spend time catching up with friends and family.

I am of Lebanese heritage, so of course, my mother thought she was the best cook in the U.S. I am glad she didn’t live to try Me Jana which is the best Lebanese food that I have ever had!

The food was great, I enjoyed the appetizers more. Our waitress was king and made an effort but after she left we were forgotten and it felt rushed with bringing the check too soon befor even finishing our drinks and never coming back to check on us for water even. Considering the few tables there were, I expected better service. The sangrias were nice with the orange zest but overpriced, water down and a very small amount. The food was decent for a try, will likely not go back.

Very friendly service, outstanding mezze selection, excellent lamb dishes, best baba gahnoush around, nice selection of Lebanese and Spanish wines. Interior is a bit dated, but cozy and the service makes you feel welcome.

MeJana came highly recommended and we could not have been more disappointed. The service was horrible; the order was botched; in the end we were charged for items we neither ordered or received. In the end it was removed from the bill

This place is absolutely disgusting. I can't tell you how gross the food was. I ordered the salmon and it was WAY overcooked. How do you ruin salmon? I just don't get it. Bake until a thermometer registers 140 degrees Fahrenheit. Any idiot can do it. But not Mejana! NEVER coming back here.

We felt like Mediterranean food on a Sunday evening and booked for 4. I called ahead and asked if the chef can make 2 dishes of foul for us, even though it’s not on the menu. They answered positively.
It is the second time dining here and the overall experience is fantastic.
Service is prompt and polite . Food is fantastic regardless of you choice of appetizers or main courses.
We had selection of appetizers including foul, hummus, kube , falafel and all was jut excellent. We had the lamb/beef mixed kebab and few others . All tasted just great.
Full bar available with creative cocktails. Watermelon martini was great. Same with the Apple martini.
Talented bartender!
Overall fantastic experience and we’ll definitely come back again.
Only negative is the tahini. Very watery and tasteless. Can definitely be improved on.
Please keep doing what you’re doing!!! We’ll be back soon.

Amazing selection of lebanese foods and super authentic! I was glad my family and I were able to eat our favorite foods we usually have at home at such a great restaurant. Definitely need to go with a group and order all the appetizers + desserts to make sure you get the most out of your visit!
