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 is overrated. Good but overrated. The spices take away the real taste of the food.

    Damas is a classical in Montreal. A staple of Montreal cuisine. They’ve been around for more than a decade and for a good reason. The food and cocktails are very good. Nice staff. Great atmosphere. Amazing decor. Although I do understand the laws of supply and demand and how they greatly affect Damas’ prices, I still think that , for locals at least, they’re too pricey. ex: 46$ for a shistaouk plate. Dont get me wrong, the ingredients are fresh and its prepared to perfection. But this is still just shish taouk. I wish they would be a bit more gutsy and explore other dishes and vary their menu a little bit. I would sure pay the price just to try out an authentic Syrian dish especially if it’s done by Damas. but why change a winning formula?

    Très déçue, nous venons tous les mois. Mais hier soir, pas les mêmes serveurs que d'habitude et donc le service etait moina bien. Les frites étaient immangeables. On aurait dit des frites surgelées pas du tout comme d'habitude. On sentait même pas les épices.... Sans parler de la lenteur du service on a attendu plus d'une heure pour nos plats même le dessert. Le thé n'était pas du tout comme d'habitude également... On est très déçu vraiment

    Quelle belle expérience! Nous avons tellement bien manger. Les saveurs, le service... tout était impeccable. Notre seule critique - nous avions rapporté les restants à la maison, mais ils n'ont pas inclus les sauces et légumes qui accompagnaient le poulet. À part de ça, une excellent soirée.

    Place was absolutely phenomenal. We had the Fattoush, Eggplant Mutaball, hummus and the lentil/bulgur dish. Some of the best middle eastern food we’ve ever had. Would absolutely recommend. Ajmat our bartender/server was also excellent!

    An absolute must. Three of us shared a number of different plates - all outstanding, but particular shoutout goes to the lamb dumplings; just wow. Aleppo gin sours, great Prosecco, excellent service. 150 bucks (tip included) felt like excellent value for the 2+ hour experience. Had an absolute blast.

    The staff and food at Damas is unreal. We arrived on a busy Sunday night with someone with a severe sesame allergy. Not only was our server (John) super helpful and knowledgeable, but we were treated so well when we could not have the tasting menu. The team is so respectful and also great at pairings and suggestions. The food is next level, absolutely stunning.
