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

Food was great, however, service was average to poor. It took 12 minutes from when we were sat down to when someone came by to take our food order. It took 15 minutes from whence we asked for the check and we received the check. Perhaps an off night, but as an 'experience,' we remember this as unpleasant.

Unbelievably delicious food for a phenomenal price. Seriously world class Arab cuisine. The tasting menu was fabulous and genuinely a hefty volume of food, without sacrifice in taste. The lamb chops were the best I have ever had in my life - genuinely!

It was our second time!!!
The service was extremely slow for a Monday. We enjoyed the complimentary fresh pita bread for at least an hour and a half, until we received complimentary drinks on the house to advise us that our main dishes would take another 30 mins.
Even though the atmosphere of Damas is amazing, unfortunately when we received our food we couldn't enjoy it since we were stuffed on pita. It was a friends birthday and we were only 4 to attend, no one enjoyed the wait.
This whole ordeal was just too exhausting compare to our first experience.
This is why I would be cautious to suggest this restaurant.

Excellente soirée pour souligner un anniversaire. Ambiance chaleureuse, acoustique parfaite on peut s’entendre parler! Le service est attentionné, les suggestions appréciées de tous autant au niveau du vin que de la bouffe. On nous a même recommandé de commander un peu moins de plats et d’ajuster au besoin ce que nous avons apprécié. Délicieux, les plats sont raffinés, un régal aussi pour les yeux. C’était plein le lundi, croyez-moi c’est bon signe!

Top drawer! We had lentil soup and then the grilled platter for two. Everything was exquisite... The lamb... The filet mignon... The chicken... Grilled smokey goodness. They have earned the hype.

Service et nourriture excellente.
Dommage qu'on puisse profiter du menu dégustation seulement si toute la table le choisi.
Nous etions 5 et un parmi nous n'en voulait pas donc on n'a pas pu choisir ce menu.
C'est quand même assez chère.

This is the finest Middle Eastern restaurant in Montreal, period. The taste, texture and presentation of all the dishes I have sampled in my meals over the past 4-5 years have been superb. The wine list is very adventurous, you may need the assistance of their capable sommelier. Reservations are absolutely required, usually two seatings, 6 and 8 PM for dinner.

Fantastic experience for our first time at Damas to celebrate my parents birthday. We had the tasting menu which was delicious. Allan, one of the floor managers, provided an amazing hosting experience the entire 4 hours we were there. What a fabulous night! Highly recommend.

Fantastic restaurant, delicious food and personal service. We loved our experience and look forward to our next visit. This restaurant is a must. The only negative I would say is that their desserts are a little disappointing, not as tasty as the rest of the menu.
