  • "Have been to Damas many times and it is one of our favourite restaurants with delicious appetizers and great service. Was saddened on our last visit however, when they no longer agreed to adapt my meal into a vegetarian request. A few more vegetarian options would make this restaurant outstanding!"

  • "AMAZING! I have been meaning to eat at Damas for a while. I finally made it, twice this week. Both times were simply extraordinary and a true culinary delight. I highly recommend this restaurant, it is a true gem!"

  • "Nous avons été chanceux. Un groupe d'amis seuls sur la terrasse arrière. Beaucoup moins bien décorée que l'intérieur, elle n'en demeure pas moins très agréable par une belle soirée d'été. A noter la musique trés bien choisie, orientale mais pas tacky du tout. Rien à dire sur la cuisine, c'est excellent, frais, trés copieux et trés bien présenté. Quant au service, la perfection. Présent mais discret, sympathique et accommodant. Personnellement c'est la 1ere fois que je me sens obligé de féliciter la personne pour son service hors pair. Expérience trés réussie."

  • "I liked their presentation, but they tried so hard to be high-end style and it didn't worth what we paid. Also their menu is very limited for some people like me who doesn't like lamb."

  • "The Syrian food at Damas seems to have richer, more luxurious ingredients than any of the other "Middle Eastern" restaurants in Montreal. Along with Su (Turkish) this is probably the finest Middle Eastern restaurant in the city. Outstanding!"

  • "Cette fois nous sommes arrivés pendant que dehors il faisait encore jour et, malheureusement, on a pu voir l'état des chaises qui pourraient bénéficier d'un bon nettoyage. On peut très bien voir le niveau et l'étandue de la crasse. La nourriture était bonne, mais dans l'un des plats principaux la viande (agneau) était froide. On nous a offert le désert pour s'excuser, mais nous sommes restés avec tout petit goût amer Dommage. Nous allons lui donner encore une chance. Espérons qu'ils sauront la saisir.. "
    Dined on 4/25/2014
  • "We were four and tried many appetizers. Food is different and delicious. Best fatoush salad I've ever had and the hummus and lamb with the grilled pita was a big hit. Lots of interesting main dishes to choose from. Portions are good size. We had a lovely Lebanese wine that the waiter chose for us. Our waiter was knowledgeable and it was obvious that he was proud of the restaurant's food and reputation. The finale of mint tea and a cheese type flan shouldn't be missed. "

  • "I rarely take the time to do this, but this is Fine Authentic Syrian cuisine made the way it should be! I am convinced that I can simply put the menu down, flip a coin and where ever it lands I can be sure whatever it is will be simply incredible. I am definitely going back."

  • "I went with my family for dinner, we were scandalized by the price versus quality ratio. The food was ok but very meager and very expensive, we left hungry anf unsatisfied. The ambience and service were also ok but nothing special, i wont reccomend this reataurant."
    Dined on 3/30/2014
  • "This was our first time at this restaurant. We ordered from the degustation menu. Although we were only 3 they really gave us food for 4. It's been a long time since I have been so pleased with a new restaurant. The food is very tasty and truly excellent. The service was also excellent. Do not hesitate, reserve and go. We will certainly go back."

  • "Nous avons choisi le menu dégustation avec 2 plats principaux. Les entrées froides et chaudes étaient succulentes accompagnées d'un bon pain pita tout chaud tout frais. Le cocktail suggéré était aussi très bon. Un genre de mojito avec des pommes grenade, d'ailleurs les pommes grenade sont parsemées un peu partout avec de la menthe ce qui amène de la fraicheur et du dépaysement! Les repas principaux étaient tout aussi succulents (flet mignon et pieuvre et cette dernière était à point). Le service était excellent... J'y retournerais..."

  • "Syrian food that will rock your world. One of the best restaurants in Montreal. Great wait staff, fascinating wines from the Beqaa Valley which has the same micro climate as Bordeaux. Priced at a fraction of the French ones and every bit as good. This is a wonderful dining experience. Book in advance as it is packed every night."

  • "3rd time here. It's always delicious and they have some lebanese wines I'd never had and were smooth. I will be going back soon. Perfect for groups or couples"
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Wow, une belle expérience. Si vous ne connaissez pas la nourriture de cette région le Damas offre une introduction éloquente à la cuisine Syrienne. Le menu dégustation à 5 services offre beaucoup de variété et la possibilité de goûter à un peu de tout. Les mezzes (entrées) chauds et froids sont excellent. Nous étions un groupe de 8 personnes et nous avons partagés 4 plats principaux dont l'agneau, l'oie, le poisson (du bar rayé) et une aubergine farcie tout était succulent. Les serveurs étaient très patients avec les néophytes que nous étions ils ont répondu à nos questions et étaient généreux avec les recommandations. Le service tr`s soucieux de faire de notre repas une expérience mémorable. Merci Damas"

  • "Amazing food! Sea bass was fantastic! Lamb kebabs excellent. Fattouch was delicious. The vegetarians we were with loved the Akkawi and the Fattet Humus. Really excellent service. The waiter's recommendations were spot-on, including for the wine. He was super attentive, professional without being intrusive. Very nice middle eastern decor. Only negative was the noise level. The people at the neighbouring tables spoke *very* loudly and the tables are close, so it was unusually hard to hear each other. Next time I will try a table at the back because the ones in the window have adjacent tables on three sides, whereas the ones at the back have adjacent tables on two sides."

  • "This Syrian restaurant serves incredibly innovative dishes with each dish encompassing multiple fresh ingredients,spices and fresh herbs. Every dish was beautifully presented (and easily shared by 2) with flavours that burst in your mouth. One of our better dining experiences in Montreal. Our service was excellent as our waiter was knowledgeable about every dish on the menu. Servings are very generous so sharing is encouraged."
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "Delicious, fresh food several notches above what you're used to when you go to middle eastern restaurants (who knew kibbe could be so light and moist?). We got the tasting menu and were not disappointed. Relied on the waiter for the main courses and both were outstanding (to-die-for fish and rack of lamb). Dessert disappointed when compared with the rest of the dishes. I did not finish mine, which is unusual. Still, highly recommend this place. Wine was also incredible."

  • "It was our first time at Damas restaurant, so we shared the tasting menu. My boyfriend and I were just amazed. The mezzes (hot and cold) were tasty and in a good quantity. The filet mignon was outstanding, it was the best I've ever tasted. The shish taouk was very good, large portion with grilled vegetables and a light, almost fluffy aïoli sauce ! The dessert (knafé) was good but too sweet for us. The service was perfect : a lot of informations about the menu and the food in front of us, enough time between the services to enjoy the food and each other company. The bill worth the quality of the food, the variety of dishes and tastes and the service you will get. Everything is about finesse at Damas, a place we will go back for sure !"

  • "This was our first time with Syrian food, and the staff was helpful without being condescending. Wine recommendation was on point, and not just an exercise in up selling. We both enjoyed the mezze and the mains, and all were well plated. Left stuffed and happy, bravo Damas!"
