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 atmosphere was beautiful. It was busy and the energy was great. While there was a lot of staff on that evening no one came over to our table to say hi or say they were busy and would be over soon or even give us water (despite the 2-3 bussers walking around with water pitchers) for more than 15 minutes. As we were seated late by the time someone took our drink order we were 45 mins past our reservation time. Once they came over the service was great and the food was delicious! Would recommend. It might have just been an atypical oversight so would still come back.

Once again, Damas didn’t disappoint. The food was outstanding and the service impeccable. We had the fattoush, cheese borek, mouhamara, humus shawarma and grilled shrimp. All fantastic! No pics this time as the lighting was tough to capture with.

La nourriture était fantastique, comme à l'habitude, mais le serveur insistait constamment pour nous parler en anglais, bien qu'il était lui-même francophone. Même après plusieurs interactions avec nous, il ne semblait pas vouloir reconnaître que nous étions francophones. Franchement déplaisant!

Definitely my best food experience in a long time. We chose the degustation on the menu and we could not eat it all, we brought home the leftovers. Everything was simply fantastic, awesome service and the best food. We are looking forward to going back.

Plats délicieux et variés.
Le prix de l'accord mets et vin n'était pas au même prix qu'annoncé sur le site, et reste un peu dispendieux pour la taille des verres servis. Cela fait beaucoup grimper le prix de la facture.
Cependant cela offre un bonne découverte au niveau des vins.

Salade fattouch délicieuse, toutes ces textures et saveurs. Wow!
La salade de pieuvre était aussi divine, les légumes grillés délicieux aussi.
Le chablis qu’on nous a suggéré était parfait avec ce que nous avons mangé.
Le service était attentionné et on nous donnait le temps de tout savourer, de jaser.
L’ambiance avec un fabuleux décor, une lumière tamisée et une musique d’ailleurs ajoutait encore du charme.
Une sortie magnifique, à répéter souvent!

Nous étions 3 et avons pris les menus dégustation. C’était excellent mais nous étions déçus de ne pas pouvoir prendre 2 menus dégustation pour 2 convives et que le 3e ne pouvait pas prendre un menu à la carte. Je comprends qu’il faut être au moins 2 pour manger le menu dégustation mais à partir du moment où on est 2 et qu’on respecte le minimum on ne voit pas pourquoi les autres convives ne peuvent pas faire un autre choix. Non seulement la logique est incompréhensible mais en plus cette politique engendre une très grande frustration. Dommage…

Excellent food and service. Tried the tasting menu and we were 4 but it was really a bit too much food. They wouldn't allowed 1 tasting menu per couple because that would have been perfect for us.
