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

This was a very special dining experience, from the decor to the food, an explosion of flavors and a very attentive staff. Definitely one of a kind restaurant in Montreal.

Salade fattouch délicieuse, toutes ces textures et saveurs. Wow!
La salade de pieuvre était aussi divine, les légumes grillés délicieux aussi.
Le chablis qu’on nous a suggéré était parfait avec ce que nous avons mangé.
Le service était attentionné et on nous donnait le temps de tout savourer, de jaser.
L’ambiance avec un fabuleux décor, une lumière tamisée et une musique d’ailleurs ajoutait encore du charme.
Une sortie magnifique, à répéter souvent!

Nous étions 3 et avons pris les menus dégustation. C’était excellent mais nous étions déçus de ne pas pouvoir prendre 2 menus dégustation pour 2 convives et que le 3e ne pouvait pas prendre un menu à la carte. Je comprends qu’il faut être au moins 2 pour manger le menu dégustation mais à partir du moment où on est 2 et qu’on respecte le minimum on ne voit pas pourquoi les autres convives ne peuvent pas faire un autre choix. Non seulement la logique est incompréhensible mais en plus cette politique engendre une très grande frustration. Dommage…

Excellent food and service. Tried the tasting menu and we were 4 but it was really a bit too much food. They wouldn't allowed 1 tasting menu per couple because that would have been perfect for us.

If you crave delicious food in a beautifully decorated restaurant with warm ambiance then Damas is the place to experience. The Fatouche salad is exquisite. The shish taouk is so unbelievably tender! Absolutely love this restaurant.

I had reserved a table for 3 persons from two month ago and i had mentioned the birthday event. Our reservation was at 8 and we thought we should be on time for a good feeling so we just were there 10 minutes before 8 but our table became ready about 8.25. It was inconvenient. We had a good experience from taste menu in 2019 so we decided to get it again but 3 plates were omitted from menu and also the price had gone up. Any way, we ordered 3 taste menu again this time with two persons drinks but quality of wines were so low. I dont think i reserve here for any other next event.

Un secret bien gardé. Damas se signale par une bouffe syrienne exceptionnelle, un menu très varié et un belle gamme de vins. Le service y est impeccable et la décoration nous transporte ailleurs. Le seul inconvénient, on doit s'y prendre bien d'avance pour y faire une réservation ou bien gagner à la loterie d'une annulation in extremis...

If I could give them 6 stars, I would. From a safety and health standpoint, they are exceptional. We had to show vaccine cards and ID cards at the door. Coming from the states, I understand this is policy in Quebec and very comforting to us. Menus are on our phones with a QR code. The very knowledgeable staff is always masked.
The cocktails were unique and delicious, we are going to attempt a recreation of the sour cherry bourbon cocktail when we get home.
We ordered the tasting menu. I asked for a protein substitution if possible and the staff and chef were more than accommodating. Grilled octopus, is often overcooked and chewy, but I had a feeling the chefs at Damas would know how to properly prepare this tricky meat, it was exceptional. The garlic sauce and different kinds of hummus had us wanting spoons or pita to leave no morsel uneaten.
The dishes were all wonderful and we enjoyed everything. Chefs and staff at Damas, thank you so much for an unforgettable evening! Your food and service set the bar. What a lovely way to begin a weekend trip to Montreal.

My fiancé and I come to this restaurant every single year for our anniversary. We decided to come a second time this year with my briher and sister in law. I have to say that the level of service CANNOT be compared to any other restaurant in the world. The food is phenomenal and the service is flawless. The staff are remember your name and they make sure that you have an unforgettable experience. Simply put my future wife and I will always be coming here every year for the rest of our lives.
