Syrian
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

Wow! What a culinary experience. Everything was outstanding, the beautiful presentation, incredible textures and the explosive bursts of flavors where out of this world! I will definitely go back! Good service and they have a Somelier also to help with special wine imports.
The only down side is that it is very expensive ($200 for two without drinks) but very worth it!
Thank you for a wonderful culinary discovery!

Apps were great. Bamia (lamb shoulder) was tender but fatty. could have used something to break the heavy main.
Sat at salad bar prep and enjoyed watching the staff. 2 people constantly making Fattouch Salad. The salad was great actually the highlight of the meal.
I will go again but with a group as the tasting menu looks great.
The staff was amazing. great ambience.

We loved everything about it. Our waiter went over what we were going to order and gave us a better suggestion for our meal. He was amazing, so friendly and wanted us to have the best experience. Our best meal in Montreal!

Incredible experience at Damas! The food was amazing, we tried the tasting menu (vegan option) and the food was to die for. Our waiter was super friendly and honest, and over all the service and ambiance was amazing. You get a taste of Syria at Damas. Even their cocktails were delicious. I’m definitely going back. One of the best dining experiences I’ve ever had.

The food was truly amazing, as promised. We got the tasting menu and almost everything was absolutely out of this world. It is pricey, so plan to spend some money.

Étant des habitués de restaurant Syriens, on a apprécié la présentation soignée et l'originalité des recettes.. le babaganoush excellent, la fatouche et aussi les cotelettes. Shishtaouk sans saveur aussi filet mignon. Moummamara trop sucré. Prix excessif selon nous. On mange mieux à prix moindre ailleurs.

Food was amazing ! Wine pairing not a great value with just a few sips per wine; will opt for a good bottle next time. But just the variety of the food and new tastes is worth it !

One of the best dinners I've ever had in my life. The freshness and flavor combinations are unparalleled. I would highly recommend the fattouch salad, humus, and Cornish hen. Service was amazing, our waiter was very knowledgeable.

Very enjoyable evening. The food was very competently prepared and straightforward (we had the Bamia and Fattet Makdous, which was beautifully presented with fried shredded pita). Wine list offers some options you won't find elsewhere (eg: Lebanese cab syrah, delicious). Decor is lovely, as pictured, although the ambiance is less intimate than I expected. This is a big and bustling restaurant. Still, pace was relaxed and service is friendly and informed.

My favorite restaurant. Having a professional lebanese chef at home (aka my mother) and then finally tasting Damas, it was like eating my mother's dishes. The staff is absolutely amazing, the service wow. Food is to die for. The knefeh is my favorite part. Best dessert ever.

Second time in Damas. Has superb experience last time and decided to return. This time we were sitter in a side room which is a narrow room with 3 tables. Although the food and service were as we remembered: superb, we all felt that the ambience in this side-room made our experience worse this time. I think that for high end restaurant with high end pricing , one should be told that the space offered is in a small back room. Overall we weren’t as happy as we were last time and felt a little cheated .
