Shawarma style marinated lamb leg, pomegranate molasses, ghee, pine nuts. Vegeterian version with oyster mushrooms
Very good food, but overpriced
Tout est excellent! Le menu dégustation pourrait être moins copieux (et donc moins cher) car rendus à la fin, il y avait encore d’excellents, mets mais on ne goûtait plus tellement qu’on était pleins!
Just excellent. Service always on par. Food is incredibly tasty and original. Every time we go it is amazing
Damas has not changed. Outstanding service. Beautiful food, best fattoush salad, hummus, salade de pieuvre. The wine list short and a little steep, but the beer they offer is very good. I take my family of 6 every year, once a year, they are all always looking forward to their visit
Un délicieux menu de dégustation est offert. Très copieux mais heureusement, il est possible de ramener les restants à la maison! Excellents cocktails et service très attentionné.
Amazing. Everything was just so good, the service was immaculate. It's definitely in my top restaurants. The food was insanely good. 5+ stars
Very good, the stuffed eggplant with tender lamb was sublime. I love the decor and that they play an eclectic playlist of both old and new Arabic music, makes it more authentic. I still do feel though that some of the dishes are overpriced for what they are, but the portions are generous good for sharing.
Delish food! Great sized portions. Maybe ordered too much but so worth it. Service was perfect. Great ambiance. Loved our experience.
Very good food, great quality...
Tasters menu is very generous... pace yourselves
Had the degustation menu andnit was amazing. Had to roll out because we had so much food! But there was missing a little ambiance since there was no music. The rest was perfect
The food was great
The welcoming was poor
Preparation staff turned their head around when we arrived but did not bother to say hello
The service was far from being welcoming nor warm ; only one member of staff was very professional and made an effort with the guests there.
The toilets were very clean and nicely decorated
This restaurant is very pricey but it worth every penny you pay for. This place is such a treat. Will go again.
Super vraiment bien
The food here is always superb. My issue is in making a reservation ahead of time, where we specify that we need to be seated outdoors, only to be greeted with the answer that we will be seated indoors. The outdoor terrace was 1/3 occupied, so when they refused to seat us outdoors, we promptly turned to leave. The manager then followed me to the sidewalk and asked me to hold on for a minute. He then informed me we could sit outside if we could vacate within 2 hours time. Naturally we accepted. Dinner was brilliant, but of course when we left 90 minutes later, only a single party of 4 had taken one of the vacant outdoor tables. Why must restos play this game? It is for this reason I will not eat there again, not recommend it to friends. This is Montreal, foodie capital! This is also PANDEMIC time, when restos need all the help they can get. I can't abide these restaurants that hold tables behind a virtual velvet rope, and they remain EMPTY during our entire meal. There are plenty of other choices, better value, and without the pretense.
Meilleur service, meilleure bouffe, meilleure expérience
Perfect as always, super nice staff.
Damas est le resto où l’on sert la plus fine nourriture syrienne/ moyen-orientale de Montréal !
Excellent service! Excellents plats! Un de mes restaurants préférés à ce jour!
Très bonne bouffe, mais le menu dégustation était plutôt dispendieux. Je crois que les prix ont augmenté en raison de la Covid. Somme toute, je recommande vivement ce restaurant. On s’est régalé!
Did not adequately comply with COVID precautions indoors. Would not go back during pandemic.
It was amazing and thank you for following my note!
Everything was amazing as always. Great service, food, ambiance 🥂
Amazing, delicious and impeccable as usual!! This is my second time here, and I'll definitely eat here again!
Great food. However, we were surprised there were little measures to prevent contamination for severe allergies. The waiter couldn’t guarantee the meat wouldn’t be grilled on the same grill as the fish... Also, there was clearly more than just gluten « contamination » because my fiancé, who has coeliac disease, had severe gastrointestinal symptoms after the meal, which he never gets with simple contamination. Apart from the allergies’ concern, the food was great (Michelin-star quality for my friki dish), the waiter was very knowledgeable and the ambiance was awesome.
we already have reservation for August 15 for 6. Happy
Very elegant restaurant, a but pricey but totally worth it from the high quality middle eastern food to the service and ambience.
Definitely keep in mind that the portions are huge otherwise it’s a great place to dine in.
Au-delà de nos attentes!! La nourriture et le service étaient nickel
Impeccable has usual! Food wine service ! Amazing.
First time there, for sure will visit again but a bit hard since the reservation booked up super fast
Great Place, Beautiful terrace and restaurant... Cocktails are to die for, Food is symphony on your tongue, Service is excellent. If you are worried about sanitary new rules, don't be, professionalism all around. just go, relax, have fun. It is time!
Fantastic experience best restaurant in Montreal by far
One of my favourite spots in Montreal. Tasty food and good service.
Get the lamb hummus!
Quelle expérience culinaire!!! Nous allons certainement y retourner.
Excellent amicable service and excellent Selection of wine
The restaurant has very nice decor and was spacious.y friend and I opted to share our meals. The wine menu was small considering we ordered by the glass but certainly something for everyone’s taste! We started with the larger Fatoush salad (yummy and a good portion to share). Next up was the shared mains- Shish Taouk and the Senegal giant shrimp. The shish taouk was served with 3 tiny dollops of garlic mayo and pita bread. The chicken was very tender and tasty. The shrimp was served with saffron infused rice with some grilled cauliflower and onions. The rice was very dense and flavourless as was the cauliflower unfortunately. The giant shrimp wasn’t anything special.
Would I dine here again? Probably not considering I didn’t find the value and taste to be there. The service was ok- when the waiter asked how the meal was, we told him we weren’t crazy about the shrimp dish (90$ btw), he didn’t flinch or try to offer an alternative.
My husband and I are regulars. Practically everyone there knows us. The place is simply are our favourite in town. We used to take the tasting menu from time to time and it always surpassed our expectations. Recently the restaurant made some drastic changes to the menu, upping the price and downgrading the choices. Antep kebab was removed, despite being a major hit. The sea bass fish is now grilled rather than served as their spectacular samakeh harreh. It tastes bland. The giant grilled shrimp tasted bitter and was terrible. The octopus was not good either. Even the friki and lamb chops are noticeably smaller in size. Management is advised to reconsider the whole menu was it is very poor we it is. For two persons we paid around 300 dollars but we feel we did not get good value in return.
A cultural experience through generous ambiance, cuisine and service!
