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

Damas was the culinary highlight of our visit to Montréal! The baba ganoush and bamia that we ordered were exquisite, as was the perfectly textured falafel with spicy tahine. The service was also superb!

Great food. The waiter is awesome. The only complaint is value. Way too expensive for what you get, especially hot mezzes. Try to avoid them.

We were visiting Montreal this past week and the only reservation available was at the bar. I called the day before to see if we could get a table instead and the very friendly woman said she’d take my name and number if anything opened up. Luckily the day of we were able to get a table on the patio. I cannot even begin to explain how great everything was. The ambiance both inside and outside was beautiful and eclectic. Service was on point- 2-3 waiters continued to come by to check in often throughout the dinner service. Drinks were delicious- loved the pomegranate cobbler! Food- I cannot even choose my favorite- our table (of four) started with the falafel, Tatar borek, and Qredes. Each one was unique and savory in its own way. Shish Tayok de Damas and the fattat makdous. WOW! Too notch service and dinner! Highly highly recommend trying this place!!!

The food was amazing as always but the service was not as good as the first time I went.
I had to wait a while and ask for a second glass of wine. I was not offered.
Also, it took a while to get the bill at the end of the evening.

We never expected to eat in a Syrian Restaurant in Montreal but we decided to try it based on the reviews on various sites. We were in Montreal for three nights and were glad that we decided to try Damas. The food and service was outstanding. We had eaten Muhamarra in Turkey and even made it at home but Damas' version was the best we have eaten. The taste and consistency were perfect. In addition, the other appetizers were very tasty. The four of us ordered different entrees and all of them were excellent. The manager who took our orders and spent time chatting with us (sorry, I forget his name) made sure the food came out well-timed. The cocktails were good and the wine selection by the glass was scant but my Italian Ciro was pretty good . Overall, I recommend this restaurant wholeheartedly but make sure you reserve in advance.

We sat at the bar and Allan (the manager) was our host and server. He was extremely friendly and knowledgeable and you could feel his passion for the restaurant. The food and drink were beyond expectations...every dish was outstanding, and we tried many. The bartenders were friendly and entertaining and made delicious and creative drinks.

Great experience. Delicious, flavourful food with classic middleeastern flavours: lamb, mint, pomegranate, mint, yoghurt. Food is beautifully presented. Decor is warm, cozy, authentic Arab decor without being gaudy. Ambiance is sophisticate. Service was excellent, waiter was very attentive and friendly. Only con I would say is that I feel some of the dishes are overpriced for what they are like the kebab. Nonetheless, dishes are filling enough to share and you will be satisfied!
