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

Both of us had the tasting menu - everything was delicious. Waiter was extremely knowledgeable about food and offered a complimentary shot at the end of the meal. Great from start to finish. Would go back in a heartbeat!

I went to the restaurant on Thursday night. The food was great but I was expecting better with the amount of $ they charge you. The wine list was not affordable and I think they could work on it. The service from Benjamin was top noch. Overall I don’t think I would go back again because there’s better food in Montreal area with better prices.

Great food and authentic flavours.
Being vegan, I could only try few things (but they were amazing!) but my friend wouldn’t shut up about his dish either.
It was nice to finally find an authentic Syrian food in Montreal.

The group of eight that I was with all agreed that our dining experience at Damas was culinary
euphoria. And we’ve been to many fine dining establishments in greater Montreal area.
This had to be the best.

Amazing experience and meal. We were a party of four and our wonderful server did a great job recommending the right amount of food for our party. We would have definitely ordered too much food. The food was outstanding but we left so satisfied and wanting more. We ordered 2 cold and 1 hot mezze and the mixed grill and 1 additional entree. Everything was fresh and the cuts of meat in the mixed grill were tender and very flavorful. This meal made our 2019 weekend trip to Montreal worth the drive. Will definitely go back to eat at Damas.

Damas brings Syria and neighboring countries to our town. Every plate is very tasty, we always share many and it brings our groups together. It's good and popular, reservation is a must weeks in advance.

Overall, experience was good. We had the tasting menu. While the presentation was stellar, I wasn’t overly impressed with more than a couple items (out of 19 total). The problem lies in the price - my wife and I left with a $250 bill (plus tip) each having gotten the tasting menu and one drink a piece. It’s just not worth that kind of money.

Nous étions 4 amis et nous pris le menu dégustation a 95 $
Grande variété de produits, de saveurs.
Tous les plats offerts étaient succulents.
Une amie ne mange pas de fruits de mer et poisson et le serveur l’a accommodée avec un filet mignon.
95$ / pers. C’est cher mais c'est une expérience gastronomique qui vaut ce coût.

Food is excellent as usual.
My girlfriend was having anxiety problem so we took our food “to go” and ordered more to eat at home.
The manager came to see if everything was fine and made sure that my girlfriend was ok. His name was Ben, he stayed with us until the end and was extremely considerate and understanding. He made it at ease for us.
Service is superb and would highly recommend. The fattouch is out of this world... an explosion of flavour. The hospitality is unbelievable. I can go on and on with all the qualities that Damas has.

Just amazing. Not the first time for me ... but I am always amazed. I opted for the tasting menu. A great choice.
Service was outstanding as well. Every bite of ever dish is a multitude of senses. They deserve their ranking.
Of course it is a bit expensive but I rather go once here than in two restaurants...
Bravo à toute l’équipe. Super belle expérience!!!

In the past year I’ve been 4 times usually everything is fantastic, this time it missed some attention on the fish dishes. We took the tasting menu and all of the fish was cold and the lobster was not cooked properly.
