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 !!

Delicious food but a little pricey. Very clean, music a little too loud. Waiter was a little inexperience but all in all it worth trying it out. You’ll enjoy the experience.

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 :)

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.

Nous étions assises au Bar, le restaurant semblait pressé de nous servir, toujours de serveurs qui tournent à l'alentour. Tous les plats sont arrivés en même temps donc les plats chauds ont figés et au prix que ça coûte c'est très décevant.

Really delicious and authentic middle-eastern cuisine. Nice atmosphere. Excellent and attentive service. Very generous portions. Was there on a Thursday night for date night with my wife. Shared two appetizers and the stuffed fish for two. Appetizers were big enough for three people. Will definitely be back to try everything else on the menu.....it's that good!
