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

Super flavourful. My wife and I ordered the fattoush salad, lamb kibbeh and meat platter. Absolutely delicious. Probably enough food for 3 or 4 people. Definitely recommend this restaurant.

This was my first time visiting Montreal and the first place a girlfriend and I went for dinner. AMAZING hospitality and service and the food was delicious!

Alan was such a great host and recommended fabulous food choices. Such a fun and lively environment! I would definitely recommend to anyone who wants to enjoy a Mediterranean meal to absolutely come here!

Finally tried this restaurant. The service was excellent, the vibe of the place was pretty good. We had the 4 courses meal (included 12 dishes) with wine pairing. The food was delicious but nothing had the ‘Wow’ factor for us. The food presentation in the plates was okay but not special in any way. Great dining experience overall but not exceptionnal enough food wise to be on my top list.

One of the best refined cuisine I experienced in the last 20 years. Attention to details are present on all meals. Even the Fatouche salad was several level higher than what I experienced elsewhere. If they can uplift a salad, imagine the rest... ;-)

We celebrated our American thanksgiving there and we’re so glad we did. Our choice was the 15 course tasting. I highly recommend it. Absolutely amazing. The cocktails are good too.

Amazing. We were familiar with this type of cuisine, but had never had it elevated to such a level. Every dish on the 12 course tasting menu was absolutely delicious. Thank you for a memorable evening!

The food was amazing. We had the 15 tasting dishes and it was a feast of flavors and we loved our experience. We had so much food that we had to take a long walk before going home, because we were so full, but it was definitely worth it. The service was excellent, we were served by many people and they were all very nice. I really had a great time.

When I order a 40$ Shish Taouk, I am expecting something rather elevated. While the meat (no more no less) was good, it literally came with fries worthy of the local Basha. Highly disappointed.
Service was very good though.

We had dinner many times at Damas but this time chose to try the tasting menu which was excellent. It allows you to try many of their different dishes. All the waiters offer attentive service. The only downfall this time is the area and experience of our seating. We were at the bar in a passage for waiters and customers. Which also seemed to be the staff seating/ some employees were just having meals and drinks with their loved ones without really acknowledging that there are customers sitting by their sides.

The food is good but not super. I had the tasting menu and it was Ok not excellent .
I tried a bit of everything so I could have a good overview of their Cusine .
Way over priced for what you are getting.

Honoured reservation. Excellent, attentive staff. “Fixed” food problem when they brought me a dish with a allergen in it. It was my fault for not letting them know in advance. After that they were super careful about my allergy.

This may just be the best restaurant in Montreal! LOVE the food here. best is ti share all the dishes so you get to taste many different foods. We had the four dips, the fattoush salad, the octopus, the shrimp, the chicken - all outstanding!

Incredible. This was the first time my girlfriend and I decided on dining to the 9s with the 15 item tasters menu and wine pairing. Everything was meticulously prepared and presented. I've never had a better meal in my life and it changed how we both look at food. The only small criticism I had was the plum dessert which was great, but didn't end the night with the decadent touch I hoped for. Expensive, yet worth it if you aren't shy about having a magical culinary experience. Service was responsive, friendly and not intrusive
Ambience is A+. Noise level was minimal. Only improvement I could think of apart from dessert would be to have the chef come out for a few minutes at or towards the end of the meal as I wanted to compliment him big time on his craftsmanship.

Well done Damas. Thank you for creating such a memorable evening for us both.

We were recommended. The food was good. Not outstanding. The service was rushed. Many staff took our plates before we did moshed without asking us. Too fast for an expensive dining experience. However it is worth the try. We may not have ordered the right foods. We did have the tasting menu. The meats were excellent. The cold
Dishes were mediocre.
