Syrian
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

Was on vacation from the US and heard about this place. It was unreal, wish it was closer to home so we could frequent it. Not one complaint. The food was amazing, our waitress so helpful and knowledgeable, and the atmosphere was great. Would definitely recommend to anyone.

We did the tasting menu which in our opinion was way too much food. Our server did tell us but we were way to excited about everything on the menu. The lobster, chicken and baba ganoush were our favorites. The chicken and baba ganoush were the best I have had ever in any middle eastern restaurant. My husband tried the kibbeh and said that was his favorite. I would recommend 2-3 appetizers and one entree for two to share. Service is impeccable, servers are keen to keep the area clean.

Restaurant bien rempli. Bon service, bon nourriture.
La seule chose c'est que nous avons réservé une table et nous avons été installé à la barre. Nous avons dû nous réclamer pour faire corriger la situation

By far the best dining experience I've had in Montreal. Love the service, the food, and the ambience! Falafel and baba ganouj, as well as their in-house hummus and shish kabob, are must-trys. The staff is friendly, warm, and sensitive to customer needs. This was the best birthday ever! Thank you so much for the lovely experience.

P.S. I highly recommend you book in advance as the place is mostly always busy.

The food is Syrian, but they bring many additional specialties. For fish for example, there is the Mediterranean sea bass. But there is also lobster and octopus. Excellent experience.

Excellent restaurant with excellent service. If you are visiting Montreal, Damas is a culinary experience not to be missed. The flavors, the portions, the spices and the unique dishes are incredible. The service is beyond excellent--the owner helped us navigate the menu with helpful suggestions and friendly conversation. The bartender and his girlfriend shared a lovely spiced vodka shot with us---the entire evening was an unforgettable experience, a culinary delight and a fabulous addition to our romantic getaway to Montreal.

Around the globe, one of the best service that one can get. Damas welcome their clients warmly and confidently as a peculiar combination of homely authenticity and masterful dedication to their cooking.

Needless to say, we will repeat the experience.
