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

    Had a fabulous date night here. Well worth the trip. I know the next time I am in Montreal I will be returning. The kibbeh with the beet purée was a highlight, but quite honestly every dish was amazing. Premium wine pairing was very generous, the sommelier did a great job explaining the tasting notes. Can’t say enough good things about this place.

    The decor was beautiful & inviting. The service was excellent & every meal we ordered was perfect, beautifully plated & full of flavour. I especially loved how they added their own touch to every traditional Syrian dish, all the whilst preserving its authenticity.

    As always, the food was amazing. I'm just surprised at how terrible the service has gotten. Upon sitting down we were ignored for a long time. We wanted to order but it took a long time to get someone's attention. Then when we finally ordered we got a bottle of wine with the appetizers it must have been about 10 minutes before they brought out our main. We felt so rushed. We had to take away hot food to make room at the table and still slowly working through a bottle of wine we now had to drink more aggressively. After we finished we were looking to leave because of the terrible experience but again, no one to be found. Se eventually had to stand up and find someone to pay our bill. Overall just a terrible night as we were celebrating our anniversary. I brought my wife here because I had such a great experience a few years ago. This was not that and we were very disappointed.

    The food is excellent and the service is amazing. But we wanted to have a date diner and celebrate our anniversary and, being put on the terrasse (may be my fault on revervation?) it was not what we were looking for. I guess we would have appreciate more the exotic experience if we were sitting inside. But this is very personal. One thing I have to say: if you look for exotisme and food that makes you travel, then this is the place. But if you are looking for a date-dress to impress, may be not the thing… especially on the terrasse, on a cold evening. Everyone was kind of casual. But I will consider coming back with friends to enjoy the food, rather than on a date.

    A friend (of a friend) recommended we eat at Damas while we were in Montreal last week and it didn't disappoint! I was able to get a 5:30 reservation on the patio (because they were fully booked for a Friday evening). The space was nice and cozy with ceiling heaters and enclosed fire pit heaters near the table so we were comfortable despite the chilly weather. The space is fully covered with glass enclosures on top of the walls and patio string lights. Our meal was fantastic! We ordered a selection of hot & cold mezzos and enjoyed every single dish... We selected Eggplant Mutabbal, Fried Kibbeh, Falafel, Hummus Shawarma (my favorite), Grilled Halloumi and Moujaddara. There was plenty of food for 4 people. For dessert we chose a single order of Fried Qatayefs which included 4 individual fried crepes - they were small bites of deliciousness! Our server, Simone, was excellent! The patio was a much quieter vibe than the main restaurant. I went inside to use the restroom and it was HOPPING in there! I've already recommended Damas to friends who are traveling to Montreal in a few weeks!

    Amazing culinary experience. The food was frankly out of this world!! Not too sure what to make of the fact that I mentioned it was an anniversary and that detail was completely ignored, but other than that it was a truly memorable and pleasant evening and I highly recommend it.

    Actual best restaurant in Montreal. I could not have been more impressed and satisfied by my experience here. My boyfriend and I don’t eat meat and we ordered the farouche salad, an eggplant dip, the falafels, the mushroom hummus dish and the cheese bourekas and we were so full!!! Everything was so tasty and delicious. Portions are perfect size and really gill you up. They give you delicious freshly baked pita at every course. The only thing we didn’t love was the baklava dessert which we found dry and bitter so we should’ve have gotten the pistachio ice cream probably! Other than that, I 1000% recommend. I will be coming back for special occasions for sure!
