Damas, an upscale Syrian restaurant located on Van Horne Avenue is worth trying out. You will be charmed by the Oriental decor and most impressed by their refined and rich cuisine. This modern but authentic gastronomy will make your mouth water with all their specialties starting from the fattouche, the appetizing mouth-melting lamb leg to the cherry kebab. The blend of aromas and the tasting of the delicious preparations will make the experience worthwhile

We were 20 minutes late (I thought that the table was for 7) it was a 50th birthday celebration. Got there and they said that we were late and could not honour the reservation - so sorry. The restaurant was empty. Many of open tables, I asked if they gave our table away they said NO! I said that we would leave by 9 they said no. Finally asked if we could eat outside - woman at the front - Oh sure. They were going to send us away and they had a table outside!! So silly and very bad customer service. They also had to send back two of the salads because they had dairy in them and someone in the party had a allergy, THANK GOD they noticed. It is a good thing their food is good otherwise I would not go back....

Every time I leave this restaurant I want to book my next reservation. It’s that good !
The perfect meal for us is starting off with a their fattouche salad ( Best I’ve ever tasted !)then the octopus, Baba ghanouj and hummus with lamb and ending up with the shish taouk which is marinated so perfectly it melts in your mouth. The presentation of each dish and service are impeccable in this wonderful restaurant and honestly my mouth waters every time I book a reservation!
I recommend this restaurant very highly to all my family and friends and they rave about it just as much !!
On top of that it’s five minutes from my home. What could be better !!

Always an amazing meal. They've made changes to the tasting menu format since our last visit and I find it makes for a much more enjoyable experience. We were eating with family who has never been and thought it was so amazing. Also the sommelier recommended the perfect wine!

Damas is a wonderful spot for Syrian cuisine. The main courses were generous to share for two people and the small mezzes were perfect to get a taste of a bunch of options

This is probably the best Syrian restaurant in Montreal. The food is very tasty and well presented. The variety is impressive, with special focus on meet which comes in many forms, shapes and tastes. They have many cold as well as hot appetizers. The desert list is rather limited. The service was good. I was seated at the bar, and the barman was very gracious.
The decoration and atmosphere were OK, but rather too dark and somber.
However, the main problem is that it was over priced, perhaps to cover the salaries of the unusually high number of staff members whom one sees coming and going crowding the place and each other.

Food was really great. Service was rushed, we felt like they had to expedite the service in order to have more customers. Aperitif was served after appetizers and we had to find our waiter so we could have a glass of wine with the main course which was already on the table. Main course arrived before we finished the appetizers... although we asked them to slow down before getting the main course...

One of my best dining experiences - no wonder it's rated number one on Tripadvisor. My date is vegetarian and while I was happy to share the majority of the orders with him, I also really wanted to try the lamb. The restaurant was more than accommodating and provided a beautifully plated partial dish for a fraction of the price. It's these above-and-beyond gestures that make a great restaurant.

One of the best restaurants we’ve been to. All dishes were perfectly executed. Portions were plentiful so you can easily share. We didn’t go with the tasting but it should be worth it. Service and ambience are great too. If you live or are passing by Montreal you need to try Damas!

Damas was INCREDIBLE. One of the best meals I have ever eaten. I would 10/10 recommend this to everyone.

Everything I ate was absolutely mouthwatering. Everything from the appetizers (we got Fattouch, Babaganoush, beef tartar, grilled octopus), to the mains (Grilled rack of lamb, ribeye steak) was possibly the best food i've ever had.

A few days later, I am still in awe of the meal I had at Damas.
