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

The food was phenomenal. The service was impeccable. We did the dégustation menu, so about 12-15 tastings of the chef’s choice. Every dish was superb, there was not one thing we did not relish. I would easily place this in my top 10 favorite restaurants.

I am a very picky eater but fell in love with this restaurant, especially it’s food. I went there for my anniversary with my hubby: i had the chicken shawarma and he had the shrimps and every single detail of our meal was worked on; from their home made pickles to their juicy chicken. We were initially worried that the plates were too small but it was a perfect and filling portion. It is pricier than your average restaurant but DEFINITELY worth it! And do not get me started on the decor! Would go again :)

One of the highlights of our visit to Damas was the help of our sommelier, Daniel Gillis. He was very knowledgeable, took time to understand our preferences and offered us great suggestions. As a result we had wonderful wine to go with the spectacular food. A great evening.

Dining at Damas was a fantastic experience! The decor was infused with middle eastern influence: deep reds, hanging tasseled lamps, and tiles and the ambiance was intimate and fine dining. The flavours were incredible and complex. Everything was balanced perfectly and had such full bodied flavour that we devoured every morsel and swiped the bowls clean. The service was also friendly and attentive. The only point that I would add is that we found the mains to have a better price to portion ratio than the mezzes so keep that in mind! Also be sure to make a reservation (and make it in advance) and it is a popular spot! Would highly recommend Damas!

The food was delicious. Our first time there and we did the 85 dollar tasting menu. Everything that came out was very delicious and they made sure you were full before leaving.

We didnt know what to expect from Syrian food as we never had it before. When the food came out it was just great tasting food. The service was amazing.

100% must try and would recommend to people who are foodies.

We are from Toronto and we definitely will be back.

The steak dish was my personal favorite.

The waiter did not explain the menu well, we ordered far too much food and the dish I ordered for myself was enough for 5 people, it was upsetting. If you dine here, the food is excellent but it is best to share dishes as many are vastly too much for one person, especially if you have had appetizers. I have eaten here 5 times and find the waiters in general are friendly but terrible at actually helping you understand the menu. Proceed with caution. Ask lots of questions.
