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

Sounds like hyperbole, but this may have been the meal I ever had. From the presentation to the taste combination, amazing. Expensive, but you pay for the experience

Restaurant syrien offrant des mets vraiment raffinés avec des épices typiques, un service impeccable et attentionné dans un lieu dont le décor recherché offre une belle ambiance. Raffinement à tous les niveaux incluant les plats de service et la musique qui nous transportent dans cette culture. Qualité supérieure qui se reflète sur l’addition.

Excellent food - but oppressively over-priced. Takes away from some of the experience. $25 for a Fatouche salad with $2.00 worth of ingredients is just plain wrong. I get a restaurant needs to make profit to survive, but then there comes a point where customers start to feel abused. Montreal is filled with great restaurants that are more reasonably priced, so it will be a while before I come back to this one.

Great food. Some flies in the restaurant which is inevitable in the summer but definitely takes away from the experience especially considering how much you’re paying. Great service.

Been there many times with out of town guests and have been always pleased. This time I was not . Not pleased with the service. Our waiter can not be heard , I had to get up and serve wine , we were 6 people and had the tasting menu ! Your waiters are usually very entertaining and very enthusiastic about the food but I was not impressed this time with my family from Italy!

Irreproachable food. Service is excellent. Not pushy at all and the entire wait staff makes excellent recommendations. Ambiance is great and allows for comfortable and private conversation. Can't wait to be back. Prices are high but very fair.

Ruby crystal chandeliers throughout the space need to be cleaned. Toilet on Friday night could have been much cleaner. That’s what needed improvement. The rest was perfect. The food! The service! And Vivienne!

Outstanding meal. Service was beyond gracious. Thanks to Michael who totally listened to my likes and dislikes and suggested the perfect meal. Also did not let me over-order. The Fatoush is like no other, every dish was great and all staff generous and available. Someone is doing something very right in Montreal!

This has become our go-to celebration station when we are in Montreal, and with a daughter in school there, we anticipate this treat for at least the next three years. Delicious!

It was really great service. Cocktails are next level delicious! I find the tasting menu too generous in portions. You end up overeating half way through the service and feel guilty for not trying or indulging on the rest. I had a good comma after eating there and it really made me feel blah.

By reducing to tapas-sized bites, I think people would leave feeling satiated but not like a balloon ready to explode.
