    Know what you're embarquing on before you settle for Zyara. It's not a fast pace restaurant for people in a hurry....it's a place you go with friends for a 2-3-4 hour meal and fun. A tad on the noisy side but that's fine with me. The food is outstanding and there's a lot of it.. no one will walk out of there hungry...

    So the first time I went to Zyara was a Sunday night for a party of 2. It was fantastic but didn't have much ambiance, this is obviously to be expected on a Sunday night. This time we went for my mother's birthday, party of 10 at 8 PM on a Saturday night. Let me tell you, the food was just as delicious as last time, but this time the place was rocking! They had a belly dancer that would do a 10 minute show every 30 minutes about. All in all, we had a great time and the place was wonderful. We will be back.

    took 10 min. for the waiter to come get our order (It may be fine in some circumstances, but this particular time, we were hurried). 15 min. later, the waiter comes back to tell my girlfriend they did not have the fish that she ordered. She orders something else. 20 min. later, our dishes arrive. The food was very good. The waiter is like a robot, no smile, short responses, did not ask if everything was ok when we recieved our plates.

    I arrived for dinner at 7 p.m. on a Sunday night. I didn't expect anything to spectacular and I must say I was extremely surprised. The food was delicious! The decor was authentic and modern all at once. The wait staff were all friendly and eager to answer any questions about the menu, or help make a few selections to share the food with others in your group. I will definitely be back.

    Been here many times for lunch and for dinner with just a few people or a big group and every time the food and experience has been excellent. This is one of the few restaurants I have been to where I can say the quality of the food is always consistently delicious. The ambiance is very reminiscent of Lebanon and all its Mediterranean beauty. The service is quick and efficient and the staff is always courteous and very helpful. This restaurant does not compare to any other Lebanese restaurant in Montreal. This is the best one there is.

    I have been here before and the food is amazing. The only issue is that it took a good 20+ minutes for someone to come to our table to offer to get us water or drinks. The only reason reason we had someone come to our table was because I asked the hostess if we could see someone and it wasn't that busy either. The food was great & service was good after that.

    I have been to zyara several times and their food is so outstanding, their only problem is the service, It's slow, the waitresses aren't very friendly, and each time I go, I always tell myself If the food wasn't so amazing, I wouldn't go back. All in all though, the decor is very cool, even the bathrooms are amazing and in the Summer there is a big terrace where you can eat and even smoke the shesha. On weekends they have a belly dancer, so it can get pretty loud, but I would recommend it for an office party or large group. Weeknights are quieter and could even be good for a romantic evening.

    Après avoir reçu des commentaires très positifs du restaurant, j'ai décidé d'aller y souper avec trois copines. Juste à l'entrée le décor nous a charmé, c'est très enchanteur et on se croit immédiatement en vacances au Moyen-Orient. Les danseuses de baladi qui se promènent pendant le repas ne font qu'ajouter a l'ambiance déjà très agréable. Connaissant déjà le concept de par une amie, nous avons chacune commandé une entrée que nous avons partagées, ce qui nous a permis de goûter plusieurs plats. Très très positif! Nous recommandons à 100%!!! :)

    As it was early, the restaurant was completely EMPTY when we arrived. Even tough all the tables were available and we had a reservation, it took forever for the hostess to assign us a table!! And I have an injured leg which showed very well so it was even more upsetting. When she finally came back, she offered a table but we preferred another one. She was upset, said but since we insisted, she had to leave again to verify if it was ok with the "table plan" of the night!!… What!???… How to make the client feel important : FAIL!!! All trough the night, the service was akward. It's too bad because the food was really good and the place is very nice. Lets hope it's because it just opened and that they adjust that very soon!

    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!

    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.

    I have been a little disappointed about the service. It was not consistent. The first time I went to this restaurant, we received an impeccable service, the waiter explained the menu in details and help us make our choice. This time, the waiter was not friendly, was doing the minimum and did not explain anything. Food was good, but for the price I paid, I expected to have an impeccable service each time. There should not be any difference from the service I received the first time and this time. Thank you

    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!
