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

Breaks my heart when I’m in Montréal and cannot get a table here. Everything is as close to perfect as a restaurant can get. Service is friendly and perfect. Food is rich, flavorful and outstanding. Can you tell we like this restaurant? I am honestly hard pressed to think of a better dining experience I’ve had anywhere in the world.

I went to the restaurant on Thursday night. The food was great but I was expecting better with the amount of $ they charge you. The wine list was not affordable and I think they could work on it. The service from Benjamin was top noch. Overall I don’t think I would go back again because there’s better food in Montreal area with better prices.

Damas was an amazing restaurant and experience. The food, service and ambiance were all excellent! Wait staff was very friendly, attentive, and knowledgeable! The cocktail and wine list was extensive and paired well with the food. The slow cooked signature lamb dish we had was one of the best things I've ever eaten!

Great food and authentic flavours.
Being vegan, I could only try few things (but they were amazing!) but my friend wouldn’t shut up about his dish either.
It was nice to finally find an authentic Syrian food in Montreal.

This place is so popular that it is hard to get a reservation even two weeks in advance. I was so happy that I was able to treat my best friend for her belated birthday celebration and her mom on Mother's Day. The reservation was for 9:00 pm but it was still very busy.

The appetizer's of Hummus with garlic and Fatoush with lots of mint and hint of lemon was wonderful! The Pita came straight from the oven. As my entree, I ordered the Moujadarra and it was out of this world. It always fill me up where I don't have room for anything else. But so worth it!

We had a wonderful server who is a brunette of average height with a ready smile. I can't remember his name but he used to work at Starbucks as a barista before he started working at Damas. He was so kind. He ensured the safety and well-being of my friend's mom as he escorted her back and forth from the rest room. He didn't do it once, but three times! It was sweet and thoughtful. He was very busy, but he never missed a beat.

He also made sure that our questions were answered and that we were taken care of. He was extremely friendly and so attentive. This just added to our overall dining experience to make it special!

I can't wait to visit Damas again. Hopefully, we will get a reservation at a decent time!

Damas was a discovery to me! I had the best dining out ever!
It got to my knowledge that the restaurant takes the 3rd place in Montreal’s rank list but I would say, it is number one!
I recommend Damas to everyone who wants to have not only a delicious meal but also an unforgettable night!
Congratulations Damas!

The group of eight that I was with all agreed that our dining experience at Damas was culinary
euphoria. And we’ve been to many fine dining establishments in greater Montreal area.
This had to be the best.

Amazing experience and meal. We were a party of four and our wonderful server did a great job recommending the right amount of food for our party. We would have definitely ordered too much food. The food was outstanding but we left so satisfied and wanting more. We ordered 2 cold and 1 hot mezze and the mixed grill and 1 additional entree. Everything was fresh and the cuts of meat in the mixed grill were tender and very flavorful. This meal made our 2019 weekend trip to Montreal worth the drive. Will definitely go back to eat at Damas.
