I had the lentil soup with turmeric which was excellent. My friend and I shared then shared the Tatar Borek, stuffed dumplings in yogurt sauce. This too was very good. For the main course we shared the Fattet Makdous, the eggplant stuffed with lamb and nuts in a tomato sauce. This dish was a disappointment and since it was the main course, it greatly diminished our dining experience. I did not realize that the lamb meat would be ground lamb, which was not very tasty at all.
The wait between courses was extremely long. We waited 50 minutes between the soup and the dumpling entrée and another 50 minutes after finishing the entrée to receive our main course. This was so long that it detracted from the dining experience. I was so hungry I filled up with drink. When the main dish finally arrived it was a disappointment.
On a very different note, I did not find the sommelier very knowledgeable on the wine, which I also found overpriced.

There is never a time at Damas where the food, service and ambiance have been anything less than spectacular. I don’t know how they do it, but every dish is an unbelievable adventure.

This was our first time at Damas and we loved it! The decor is Eastern and the ambiance is friendly and welcoming, yet at the same time, private enough for conversation. We took the tasting menu which I would recommend if you want to try all the variety the restaurant has to offer. Be warned, though, it's a lot of food and try as we would have liked, we could not finish all the dishes. No problem, they do provide take home containers.

Un des meilleurs restaurants découverts au cours de ma longue vie (76 ans) et de mes nombreux voyages. Le seul bémol, le niveau de bruit, qui est un peu fatiguant. Ce restaurant mériterait le recours à un spécialiste de la réverbération sonore.
Sinon, ce fut un régal du début à la fin, quoi que les deux derniers plats ont du être emportés pour le lendemain car nos estomacs étaient largement satisfaits. Et franchement, les 85$ étaient bien employés.
Merci pour cet accueil et le plaisir de nos sens.

Damas est un restaurant charmant...un décor chaleureux, la nourriture est succulente et le service impeccable. Que du bonheur! Un grand bravo pour le service et le souci du détail. Le gérant bonifie l'expérience avec ses conseils, ses explications et son sourire. Le sommelier ainsi que les serveurs sont hyper attentionnés. La nourriture est délicieuse et goûteuse. Je recommande fortement le menu dégustation...juste des surprises agréables! Il faut seulement être raisonnable sur le pain pita tout frais sorti du four! Je n'ai aucun commentaire négatif. Ce resto est un must! J'y retournerai sans faute!

I loved everything about our evening. The only thing I would change is for the wait staff to relax a little and not take our plates away sooo fast. It’s a fine line between wanting the dishes gone from the table and feeling rushed... was a bit rushed for my liking. Otherwise the food was gorgeous and delicious and we will definitely go back for more!

Our group of five women had a wonderful experience at Damas. Three out of five had been to the restaurant before. It was helpful to be with those who knew the menu and could order for our group. Our waitress was very helpful in choosing a red that was to our liking and paired well with the food. Other than the restaurant being farther away from home than I usually travel, it was more than worth it and I will return. Thank you for a wonderful dining experience.
