Best Lebanese on South Shore
A great new restaurant for the Lebanese dining scene. Not quite as good as Damas but a nicer setting wuth a beautiful balcony.
Service is below par, but I suspect it is teething pains. It is still very new.

the food was great, the presentatio
the food was great, the presentation is beautiful.
The restaurant is very trendy with beautiful decor, the service is very good for a new restaurant.
It was raining so we couldn't sit at the terrace, but will definitely try the tarrace.
excellent wine list, with a very large variety for every budget.
the secret is to order the mezza (a multitude of hot and cold plates) to share...
highly recommend it and will definitely go back.

Une belle découverte!
Nous avions réservé pour un groupe de 10 sans n'y avoir jamais été et nous avons adoré notre soirée! Le décor est très tendance et les plats sont succulents. Le service est parfait et courtois. J'y retournerai, c'est certain!

We were a group of 10 people's, 5 adults and 5 kids. All of our attendees did have a great time, the food was good the service also. The staff is fantastic. Really beautifully decontract restaurant, you should take a look to the ladies washroom. This message is only for women;)

A tasty discovery!
The decor is exquisite, the terrace is very comfortable and nicely shaded, the service is polite and helpful, and the food is well presentable and perfect for sharing. We were a party of 3 and chose a variety of 12 menu items. Oddly, we found the classics like shish taouk and shish kabab to be less interesting (meat was a little dry) than the other items we tasted. Hummus bi basterma, labné, fattouche, and halloum flambé were our favorites. Overall, a great experience to be repeated!

excellent restaurant. loved it!
It is my 2nd time at zyara. Really enjoyed again.

Very nice upscale restaurant
This restaurant has a modern fresh ambiance and decor. The fatouch was delicious, salmon was very good, many different choices were very tasty. Mixed grill was very good, most plates seem to be better if ordered on a shared group basis, with everyone having tastes of everything.
Service was very good. I would advise calling ahead if you are not familiar with the location, as it is upstairs, and does not have much signage, so a bit tricky to find.

We had lunch at Juliette & Chocolat and spotted Zyara just accross The Square. We decided to try it and just loved it. The food was amazing, and our server friendly and patient, as we waited after each course to decide which one we would pick next. The price was reasonable for the amount of food we had.
We (two friends) are both looking forward to bringing our respective husbands next time around!

High end Lebanese
Wonderful setting, attentive service, fresh produce, copious portions. You feel like you are in another world on the beautiful terrace outfitted perfectly with white parasols and comfortable seating. Notably, they make their Pita bread on the premises the likes of which you have never tasted, absolutely delicious!

Brought some friends from out of town. Had never been there yet, so was taking a chance. But it was amazing! The restaurant itself is beautifully decorated, very airy and bright (even in the evening and night), the food was fantastic and appetizers are made for sharing between 4 people so we tried a whole bunch. This could be a meal in itself, however we ordered main dishes only because our taste buds wanted more! Needless to say we did not order dessert, but the choices were wonderful. Next time for sure. After we finished eating, we took our wine outside to finish to sit on their terrace. Will definitely go back. We were not rushed at all at any point in the evening and the waiter was always coming around to make sure we were all ok.

Nice meal great decor
At first impression the white decor seems too bright but the colour of the furniture cushion bring it in balance.
The silverware is of a very nice design and the stoneware is also very nice. the wine list is very reasonably priced and the food was authentic and delicious.
This is definitely a happening place.
I recommend arriving early if you want a quiet dinner or later if you wand the party atmosphere.

Le menu est varié, la nourriture est fabuleuse, le restaurant est magnifique et les personnes sont souriantes et accueillantes. Toutefois la musique forte combinée au son ambiant rend les discussions difficiles a moins de parler fort et d'enterrer tout le monde. De plus, il a fallu demander à quelques reprises de venir distribuer des pains à notre table, nous semblions oubliées dans le fond du restaurant. Néanmoins le Zyara reste ma nouvelle découverte préférée!

Excellent Lebanese food; despite our reservation, we did not have a nice table outside and we had to insist to have a nice one Inside.

Meilleur resto Lybanais
Je considère Zyara comme le meilleur resto Lybanais sur la Rive-Sud. Tous les plats (entrées, salades et repas principaux) sont arrivés bien chaud où bien frais avec de belle couleur appaitissante.
Il y a aussi des shisah à prendre relax avec des amis (es) sur la terrasse extérieure.
Excellent service et ambiance.

A MUST try
Great decor, great food, great ambiance... must really try.
the terrace is beautifully laid an decorated, we had a shisha and drinks in the terrace lounge after having had dinner inside. The food is the best Lebanese food in Montreal, very fresh and tasty...
9/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Superbe resto/lounge pour manger entre amis et fumer une shisha sur la terrasse chauffée. Je recommande la salade Fattouche et les saucisses Soujouk. En plus, le service était vraiment exceptionnel!
9/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
yes yes yes
I shaved a star because music was a little loud at times even after they brought it down once we asked. Food and service amazing. Underground parking too!

Good ambiance, welcoming and food
Very pleasant evening. Nice and classic decor, very good service. The waiter was pleased to explain everything in his menu. The food itself was very good as we took a selection of cold and warm mezzas which were very freshed and well presented.
A very pleasant lebanese experience.
9/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
Le personnel accueillant, souriant.
Nourriture et vin excellents.
Très bonne ambiance, autant à l'intérieur qu'à l'extérieur .
10/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
Très bon restaurant. La nourriture et le service est excellent.
Par contre, l'ambiance est trop éclairée, ce n'est pas romantique.
Il manque de musique pour enlever le bruit des voisins de la table d'à côté.
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
à bientôt !
Nous avons beaucoup aimé notre soirée. Le seul bémol fut d'avoir trouvé un cheveux dans mon assiette. La liste des vins est excellente. Le menu dégustation était à la hauteur de nos attente. Le service impeccable. Très gentil et souriant serveur.
Mais nous y retournerons avec grand plaisir !
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
Magnifique décor, personnel très acceuillant, chaleureux, connaissant, attentionné et efficace. Nourriture très fraîche, délicieux. Ce fut une soirée très agréable. A découvrir et a répéter!
10/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Nous avons opté pour le menu dégustation, suggeré par notre serveuse. Il s'agissait d'entrées froides et par la suite les chaudes, avec des morceaux de poulet, saucissons épices, patates rissolées, etc. Le prix total est raisonnable, mais tout de même un peu élevé pour ce qui est servi (humus, purée d'aubergines, salade verte, taboulé). Le restaurant lui-même vaut le coup d'œil par sa fraîcheur, son décor épuré avec ses touches de couleurs. La terrasse semblait bien . Côté intimité pour un souper romantique, ce n'était pas l'idéal. L'endroit est bruyant dû à la musique un peu forte. Somme toute, nous sommes satisfaits de notre expérience, et y retournerons certainement pour y déguster un met principal cette fois!

This is the second time that we have been to Zyara. The food is consistently excellent, the service, wonderful and the ambience lovely. I'll definitely be going back again soon!

Une troisième expérience inoubliable.
Plats appétissants et succulents.
10/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food very good, typical Lebanese ambience, service could be better but hostesses very nice and charming. Music way, WAY too loud! The only thing missing are the belly dancers.
11/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
chic and trendy Lebanese restaurant
Service was good and courteous. We ordered a few dishes and shared them tapas style. It was a bit on the pricey side but at least the food was good and different from other Lebanese restaurant. The decor was also very trendy.

Zyara is simply amazing.
Zyara is one of the best restaurants in dix30 and THE best bang for buck you will ever find.The food is fresh and everything is from amazing quality ingredients.Highest class of Lebanese food on the south shore. it's not expensive.Exquisite dishes.The humus is made minutes before it gets to your table and the bread is just so good.Everything about it is great. Make sure you don't just take one plate.Take mezzas with a group and share.It is so much better, a lot fun and you will want to taste everything on there.go with your spouse and another couple for the best experience.Let the waiter decide what you eat as he knows the menu very well.He will ask you questions and will make a tailor made menu just for you.A must for Lebanese food lovers.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
We went on nov 22 and for the fist time i got a call the same day to confirm my reservation.
Once there hostess was nice and polite BUT the waiter was great!! ( don't remember his name but he said to the people o the next table that he is Armenian) polite and attentive to detail. He knew his wine and dishes. We ordered the tasting menu for 2 but i will say it's more for 4. a lot of food! We really enjoyed the experience! Next time we want to try the shisha side!
11/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
We had an exceptionally spectacular evening at Zyara! Being a group of 10 we were given the option of a group menu or dining 'a la carte'. We initially chose 'a la carte' but once there, we were convinced on choosing the group menu. The service was impeccable and the staff was knowledgeable in their menu. The group menu at $39 per person left us with enough food to even take home....the food just kept on coming! A beautiful location with wonderful ambiance! Highly recommended!
