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

Damas Ratings and Reviews
Top 3-5 dinners we have ever had -world wide. Sit at the counter, go with the tasting menu and pace yourself. Completely amazing experience. Vivian, our server was so personable with so much passion for the way the food was meticulously prepared and explained each dish as if she created it.
The food in this restaurant is absolutely phenomenal. From appetizers to entries it is top notch. Service is impeccable. I really do not understand why would anyone not like it here. I recommend lamb frikka - it is the best lamb I ever had in my life, and even better then the one I had in Turkey.
There are so many great restaurants in Montreal... the bar is set very high for me to want to add a new favourite. Damas is a new favourite.
We ordered the tasting menu, and although it was a tad pricey... we loved the choice of dishes... the tastes... and felt we got good value. Even had a delicious doggy bag of leftovers to eat the next day.
We will be back!
Simply one of the best dining experience I had in my last 20 years in Montreal !!
The food is amazing and the dishes perfectly executed, the ambiance and decoration make you feel as if you were dining in the Middle-East (a warmth you particularily enjoy in Montreal's winter), and the service is on point. Well worth the price, well worth the drive. Try Damas and you won't be disapointed. I actually cannot wait to go back again ;) Enjoy !!
I cannot say enough great things about this restaurant. First off the food was so fresh, delicious, interesting and authentic. The Fatoush salad was bursting with flavor.
My daughter and I shared several items and enjoyed them all, right down to the Baklava ice cream dessert.
The service was just right, with excellent recommendation, and the decor was amazing.
We will definitely go back several times.
When a Syrian person recommends a syrian restaurant that means YOU SHOULD try it!! The best syrian restaurant i have been to, authentic syrian dishes, tasty, the presentation is amazing, customer service is marvelous!! Staff are trained to say the name of the dishes in a correct way which was cute , a bit pricy but not for the quality .. Highly recommemded :)
Great food and service from start to finish! Ordered the testing menu, hummus are the best, I especially like the nutty hummus and the beets hummus! Meats are so tender and the vanilla walnuts ice cream is infused with rose water so yummy! Definitely will go back soon!
We took our out of town guests to Damas.
We told them that this was one of the best restaurants in Montreal, we did not lie! Warm friendly beautiful, yes but oh the food.
As each dish arrived and was tasted there was a moment of silence, then oohs ahs and yums. Just go! It's worth it! The stuffed fish, hummous with mushrooms & Baba Gannoush were outstanding!
La nourriture était divine! Les saveurs délicieuses! Nous avons pris le menu dégustation et on n’avait plus faim avant la viande. Le décor est très agréable. C’était notre première fois et ce ne sera pas la dernière! La jeune femme qui a fait le service a su nous charmer. Cette serveuse a adapté le menu pour que tous soient satisfaits et ce, tout en délicatesse; pour mon mari intolérant au gluten et ma belle-fille végétarienne!
The dining experience at Damas was exceptional. We were recommended the restaurant by our hotel concierge at the Sofitel Montreal and we were very impressed. Having not been to Damas before we were advised by our excellent waiter to select the six course taster menu which was a great piece of advise as it allowed us to experience numerous dishes both hot and cold raw and grilled and each was served and prepared fantastically well if you get the opportunity to visit Damas do not hesistate you will have a superb meal without question. Thanks to all at Damas for making my daughters 22nd Birthday meal a wonderful night.
Amazing bar tending team! Exceptional service, with a warm welcoming staff. The owner is very present in the daily interaction with customers and has a great sense of humour! I would recommend this restaurant, the food is flavourful, fresh and tasty. Definitely my best food experience in Montreal!
