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

I was really impressed by this place. The decor is fantatic, food was very tasty, and portion are built to share so are generous. Have the sea bass or fliet mignon kebab and you wont be disappointed. The hummus also stood out...which is rare!

A superb meal. Great service. Beautiful decor. Noisy, but not overwhelmingly so; it was still possible to hear our own conversation, and we could not hear the conversations of others. The waiter was very nice and personable. He was spot-on when we asked how many dishes we should order. (We ordered one cold appetizer, one hot appetizer and one main course - the perfect amount of food for two). Definitely a splurge, but worth it! We will return to try different dishes - and for a real splurge, the tasting menu...maybe next time.

Organisation flexible pour rajouter une 5eme personne au dernier moment, c'est admirable
Dommage par contre qu'il fallait absolument quitter la table pour 20:30 : ça ne donne pas une bonne impression au client qui se sent du coup presse comme dans une cantine.

Excellent Mediterranean food, combining the authentic cuisine from Syria and Lebanon, excellent customer service, and well organised, they have taken the levantine dish to the next level
I'm a falafel lover, it was a bit hard and too crispy, I know the Syrian and Lebanese falafel so well, so it was not was as expected, overall, excellent menu and well done.
The eggplant casserole fatet makdous, was amazing
The Kibbeh (Arabic: كبة ) with minced onions on the side was great.
If you are not familiar, the stuff are quite familiar with the menu and will explain in detail.
Great experience to try..

Incredible experience. Top notch service from the moment you walk in until the moment you leave. The food was nothing short of spectucalar. We had the tasting menu, and I strongly recommend it as long as you have a large appetite. I could eat, and I basically had to roll myself out of there. Great ambience. I brought my fiancé to celebrate our 4 year anniversary, and we will have nothing but great memories. I must acknowledge the warm and courteous service from the manager, Alan. He came time and time again to make sure we had nothing but a 5 star experience. I would go back just on his service alone. Thanks Alan and his team for a night we will never forget!

I specified in the reservation and when we checked in, that it was my best friends 60th birthday. I requested that they acknowledge that after dinner with some kind of gesture, like a dessert and of course I was willing to pay for it.
It was supposed to be a surprise for, When I asked the waiter at the end of the meal,he didn’t know what I was talking about.
Ended up leaving very upset, when I had made the request twice.
I live in New York, I have dined here over 10 time in the last 6 months.
Very disappointing, won’t be going anymore.

The food wasn’t warm when it came at the table we hade the tasting menu
The taste was fantastic and mind blowing the service was very good the ambiance felt warm and cosy
On another hand it would appreciated to have some lighting on top of the table so we can see the beauty of there food and there menu

I have been at this restaurant on a few occasions in the past and it was always great. I see a clear deterioration in the quality of food (including food arriving lukewarm), what is available from the listed wines, service (inattentive) etc.

The food was good, some dishes more outstanding than others. Herbs in the fattoush salad for example were wilted/bruised/tired and therefore lacking in their natural flavour. The lentil dish however was FANTASTIC!
Service should be more attentive for the prices. Our server was distracted and not really all that on top of our experience. Also, the little surprises on the bill at the end of our meal that he failed to communicate like the added cost of an extra dumpling (we were a party of 4, but I guess the dish normally only comes with 3 pieces), + endlessly pouring $8 bottles of sparkling water but failing to mention the cost felt like an overstep.
