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

    Love the food! The wine suggestion was good too. Almost too many waiters? I totally understand wanting to provide good service but it felt a teensy bit ‘stressful’ to have so many hovering. It’s my second time there and I will return :)

    Amazin. Everytime i go, it still amaze me the taste of the food! I love Damas. They should add more dishes like yabrak or lamb kebab with grenadine sauce. Fatet chicken chawarma would be great too…Just to add more dishes to theire menu.

    Au delà d'un simple repas sympathique au restaurant, j'ai vécu une réelle expérience culinaire. Le service était incroyable. La cuisine était excellente. On sent que le chef a voulu nous raconter une histoire. Ça donnait envie de le connaître personnellement. Ce restaurant devrait être étoilé!!

    Une expérience culinaire incroyable. Une découverte que nous recommandons assurément. Il s'agit ici d'une cuisine gastronomique très fine. Le mRiage des saveurs et textures est 5 étoiles. Le personnel est très accueillant, chaleureux et professionnel. La suggestion du vin par le sommelier d'un vin syrien était exquis.

    I can not say it was the best Syrian food I have tried. It’s okay overall. I expected more having heard good things about the restaurant over the past few years & trying it for the first time. I asked for my main course to be packed to go as I could not eat much of it. They decided to not pack two thirds of it which I have never experienced before. Threw out an entire set of fries without asking me. The food was okay, glorified & overpriced. Felt I get the same at a fast food restaurant such as Boustan. Staff was courteous overall.

    Damas just isnt what it was, it used to be special and now its just blah. Food wasn’t amazing at all, very normal, not worth the price whatsoever. If you want great food check out Beroya in Laval.

    The food was good but not mindblowing to justify its price. I had the mixed-grill platter which was $185. The amount of meat on the platter, and its quality, is approximately $60-80 at other restaurants. I had the cheese borek as well, which is basically a near $30 appetizer. The serving size and quality of it should be around $15. None of the food was bad however— I’m just saying there are way better bang for bucks. Not only do other places give more portions per $, the food at other places also taste better. So the price-to-taste ratio at other places are also better. The waiters/waitresses also kept our glasses of water empty for long periods of time. Ultimately, we got there at 8:45pm, reservations were for 9pm, we were seated at 9:05pm, and we left at 10:03pm. All the people who were already there before we got there, were still there after we had left. I include this detail because the it felt like we were being rushed to leave. I must say, I don’t look like the friendliest person, so maybe they just felt like my presence was bad for business. I don’t really care for that last bit, because I’m used to not being wanted around, so it doesn’t bother me, however, I note it because others who also might fit the same description and who do care about their level of service and how people treat them, if you feel uncomfortable by that, then maybe you’d want to avoid this place. Just leaving a detailed report for whoever it may help. To summarize: -The food tastes good -The prices per item are 2x - 3x than anywhere else for the same quality (other places have more portions and tastier) -If you’re usually discriminated against due to having a rough exterior, you may want to avoid this place 3/5 Wouldn’t recommend to my friends. Despite my experience, my bill came out to $235.11 and I tipped 20%, for a total of $293.88 Trust me, in Montreal, for $300, you can get a lot better in many places. This was just the Mixed Platter + Cheese Borek.

    Nice restaurant, excellent food, drinks and dessert, would be nice to have menu with photos, when you don’t know the Syrian cuisine, pictures are with a thousand words, went for what the waiter recommended ( 3 starters and 1 main dish ) it was a bit too much food for my wife and I, not sure if the recommendation is to consume a minimum amount, otherwise excellent food

    A reference in exotic tasting top quality food, very well presented with A+ service. Menu portions are large so be forwarded to not over order, pace it. The drinks are wines are also most excellent. We are lucky to have this Montreal gem. Had not been here in a few years (lived elsewhere) and became a quasi regular at the old location and glad to say it’s been of a very high standard for years. A special lace for sure. Regards Pierre
