“Great fresh Lebanese food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013

We had dinner at Me Jana last night. Loved it. We had never been there before but it was close to the Metro and gave it a try. Two in our party had lived in the Middle East and are foodies so the bar was set high. We all loved our meals. Sitting outside on a beautiful night, we tried a little bit of everything. The mezze platter for two ($40) was delicious, fresh, and fed three along with some kebabs and other items. The chef was clearly very good and the ingredients were authentic and spiced just right.

The bread was hot, the drinks cold, and the food just right. The salads made us reminisce about great meals in the Middle East we had shared in souks and charming restaurants from Turkey, Cyprus, and beyond . It was clean, convenient and worth the time and money.

Will return.

“Lunch Favorite”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2013

The lunch menu is excellent choices, very nice portions of food for the price, and the food is very good. Well prepared and presented well. Service staff are also very attentive and pleasant, very nice dining experience. Have not been for an evening meal, but the menu looks very promising!

“Great Restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

I ate here with my parents during restaurant week. The sampler platter was amazing, especially the meat pie. One of the best places I've eaten at in the DC area.

“Good Food, Excellent Servive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

The food at this restaurant is very good Lebanese. We had a series of small dishes. Each one was quite good. I particularly liked the sausages which came in a nicely flavored lemony broth. The pita bread was very good, was warm, and the server replaced it several times over the course of the meal. The food came very quickly after we ordered it, and the server was very attentive without being annoying. The restaurant is very close to the Courthouse Metro stop so it's convenient to get to. I'd recommend this restaurant to friends.

“Incredible”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

On a short stay to the DC area I've eaten in this restaurant several times. The food and service are impeccable. Each time I've ordered something different and each time it was sensational. Truly a must for anyone in the area.
