Damas was fantastic as always! Though it is quite pricey, we never leave disappointed. The food is delicious and flavorful and the service, warm, friendly and professional. It is by far our top Montreal restaurant!

I go to Damas every now and then. I was disappointed with my last visit. The service was lacking. They changed their menu and now it seems everything is lamb, lamb, lamb.

My favourite restaurant in the city! Never ceases to amaze me how far they have come from the small local on Park. The food was good then and now is spectacular! I could live on the fatouche and Mouhammara every day!!!

Went with hubby for Valentine’s day dinner. Food was extremely delicious, unique and different. The menu was designed with portions to share and above average portion sizes for this type of restaurant. We fell in love with the place and will definitely be back soon. Service was also outstanding and everyone very pleasant. The only improvement would be to add valet parking.

Initially had a misunderstanding with the reservation but management made every effort to rectify the problem, when it wasn't even their fault. In the end we got the table and great service. Can't wait to go back.

What an amazing experience, $$$ but nonetheless so worth it. We went on a Monday and it was surprisingly quite busy! Fresh tasty food, you can tell the ingredients are of good quality, cooked to perfection, the flavors are flawless. I would definitely recommend this restaurant for a date/anniversary/special occasion. Service was courteous and efficient as well. Would definitely come back!

Honestly one of the greatest meals I've ever had in my life. Well worth the price. Everything we ordered was OUTSTANDING and so incredibly tasty. I wish we had been more people, so that we could have tried more dishes. The staff is great, the restaurant beautiful.... and need I say again how delicious the food was?! Don't sleep on this one.... GO!!!

Fantastic food, great ambiance, friendly and helpful staff, always busy. Although the prices are higher than the average Montreal restaurant, it was definitely worth it! I highly recommend the 5-course tasting menu, it has a lot of variety and was delicious.

this is my second visit and I must admit that they never fail you in Damas. The food and flavors are simply magnificent. our waiter Marc-Anthony was very accommodating and helpful. the wine list is a daring one with great Lebanese wines which I hardly find in Montreal. So yes this restaurant deserves the recent plaudits and positive reviews from the foodies.

Service très soucieux? très attentif
Menu découverte belle sélection mais je crois pas que ça vaut la peine de payer 95 $ pour les bouchees quils nous ont servies.
Total la facture presque 500 $ taxes et pourboire inclus
Détails : 250$ de nourriture pour 250 $ de d'alcool
beaucoup trop cher pour ce que c'est


Oui on y retourne on choisit plutôt à la carte que le menu découverte et on reste sur la bière parce que deux 21/2a3 fois le prix de la Saq. Pour moi c'est du vrai vol.
Bouteille à 25$ ça vaut pas 70$!
car je m'achètes une bouteille de vin à la SAQ une bouteille à 70$ je veux la valeur, les qualités et le goût de mon 70$. Il est impossible pour comparer une bouteille de qualité de 25 $ à un vin a 70$.
Il ne faut surtout pas prendre les gens ou vos clients pour des idiots surtout que nous avons tous un téléphone cellulaire à la main et l'application de la SAQ disponible au bout du doigt.
Je vous suggère des bouteilles d'importation privée sur la carte....

Great Food, Excellent Entrees and Mezzes - Mains were good for the price. Experience at Damas was very good - the soups, mezzes and their fattoush salad were memorable. The service left a lot to be desired. Our waiter was constantly talking to the table behind us and not giving us much attention. He didn't even tell us the shrimp was sold out until after we had placed our whole order. We also had to wave him over often for some extra bread or water. When we were paying at the end - he was still talking to the table behind us which I found very rude.
