    An amazing experience from start to finish! The server was very professional and remembered everything we ordered to perfection. Not our first time at Damas and certainly not our last. I highly recommend this restaurant for the quality of their food and the overall experience.

    Not the best service. The waiter didn't warn us that there won't be enough space on the table for the main courses and mezze, so we had to get the packed the mezze to go to make space for the main course. The food was good but the "Pita" was more of Tortilla.

    The fattouche salad was a more than ordinary salad which was bathed in sauce with a lot of roughly chopped tomato. I knew their salad well and it had nothing to do with it, it looked like it had been made the day before. The octopus had a burnt taste that was unpleasant to eat.

    J’ai mis 5 étoiles pour la nourriture car les saveurs étaient délicieuses et la qualité exceptionnelle. Toutefois, j’ai mis 4 étoiles pour le service. Nous étions 2 à table, une amie d’origine maghrébine et moi femme noire. Le serveur s’adressait qu’à mon amie et en arabe. Il s’intéressait peu à mon besoin. Tellement que mon amie et moi avons plaisanté et ri de son désintérêt. Je crois que le serveur s’est rendu compte que j’étais présente au moment de payer car je payais pour 2. Je regrette même de lui avoir donné un pourboire de 18% (~60$). Son comportement méritait un 10%. Sinon, j’ai adoré, le décor, l’ambiance et les autres membres du personnel. J’ai pris le plateau de différentes viandes grillées et la qualité de la viande sans pareil. Je recommande mais avec un serveur moins « partial » pour pas dire autre chose!

    Tasting menu was fantastic paired with the exceptional wine pairing. Not a single bite of food or sip of wine was a miss. Damas is the true gem of Montreal. Don’t forget to ask them for their homemade hot sauce which was addicting.

    Not only is one of the best Middle Eastern restaurants you will eat at, it’s one of the best restaurants of any cuisine you will eat at. Simple as that. Food is outstanding, tasty and high quality. Not cheap but worth every penny. Good wine list too.

    Menu dégustation poisson commandé. Tout est très bon et sublime. Pieuvre wow! Accord avec vin parfait (et je suis difficile a ce niveau) Serveurs très gentils et attentionnés - sommelier impeccable- mais le rythme de service des plats est trop rapide. Beaucoup de nourriture et on a à peine le temps de souffler que le nouveau plat arrive. Un peu de confusion aussi parfois (on a reçu un dessert avec chandelle alors que c'est à la table à côté qu'ils célébraient un anniversaire!) Mais c'est sympathique et le resto s'est bien repris en rapportant un autre gâteau au jubilaire ! Donc on en rit et ca fait juste du bien. Comme tout autre resto les prix ont bcp augmenté dans la dernière année. Expérience très très bien mais qu'on ne peut pas se permettre de répéter très souvent malheureusement. Calculer 300$ par pers pour dégustation +vin+ taxes et service.

    It is one of my favourite restaurants in Montreal and it is normally a wonderful experience. I always bring friends here that have never tried it before. The food was great with rich flavors, and good portions and the service was very neutral (slower than normal). The wine list was elaborate but the mark-up on the wine was one of the primary reasons that I would reconsider before going back.

    The food and cocktails were outstanding. Staff was attentive and .add good suggestions when we asked. We order the shawarma hummus which was fantastic (Seriously, I am ruined for other hummus) and the mixed grill for two, which was also amazing. Portions were very generous. It is pricey, but worth it once and a while as a splurge dinner.

    The food was excellent and so was the service. However it was so noisy that it was hard to have a conversation. Prices are also a bit too high. Almost $40 for 'fatoush' , which is basically a salad, id a bit much!
