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

By far the best dining experience I've had in Montreal. Love the service, the food, and the ambience! Falafel and baba ganouj, as well as their in-house hummus and shish kabob, are must-trys. The staff is friendly, warm, and sensitive to customer needs. This was the best birthday ever! Thank you so much for the lovely experience.

P.S. I highly recommend you book in advance as the place is mostly always busy.

The food is Syrian, but they bring many additional specialties. For fish for example, there is the Mediterranean sea bass. But there is also lobster and octopus. Excellent experience.

Excellent restaurant with excellent service. If you are visiting Montreal, Damas is a culinary experience not to be missed. The flavors, the portions, the spices and the unique dishes are incredible. The service is beyond excellent--the owner helped us navigate the menu with helpful suggestions and friendly conversation. The bartender and his girlfriend shared a lovely spiced vodka shot with us---the entire evening was an unforgettable experience, a culinary delight and a fabulous addition to our romantic getaway to Montreal.

Around the globe, one of the best service that one can get. Damas welcome their clients warmly and confidently as a peculiar combination of homely authenticity and masterful dedication to their cooking.

Needless to say, we will repeat the experience.

Superbe soirée mais le service était trop rapide ! Tous nos plats sont arrivés en même temps, notre verre se remplissait dès qu’on buvait une gorgée. Mais pour le reste, la nourriture était un délice !

You will really not be disappointed. Food is superb but it is quite on the expensive side.. we had the tasting menu which is 12-15 dishes at $95 + tax + 15% tip which can set you back at around $125. If you pair it with wine or any other drink just prepare $150.

Un moment inoubliable, un resto victime de son immense succès: le service est lent. Le plat principal est arrivé 1 heure après la commande. Tellement bon, on pardonne tout. Le plus beau compliment? Mon ami syrien, arrivé à Montréal il y a un an a dit que c'était meilleur que la cuisine de sa mère, une excellente cuisinière. Tout est dit.

I went to Damas when it was on Park, a long time ago, and I liked it at the time, but was not 100 % sure I made the best choices, since the menu has so much choices and offered dishes that we're not familiar with. So, for our second visit, my guest and myself decided to just let the chef feed us without ordering any specific dish. That was the best decision we could have made that night! Just let your waiter know what you like and what you don't and let the food arrive at your table. You will have a memorable feast! And it was surprisingly affordable, for all we had to eat: 3 appetizers and 2 main dishes. We had leftovers for two more meals the next day! The sommelier was also very knowledgeable, and we really loved our fruit-driven Garnacha, served at the right temperature too. I can't wait to be back and to try other amazingly flavourful dishes at Damas! One of my best meals ever, and since my job brings me to eat in restaurants very often, I'd say it is a real compliment on my part...

- Service impeccable autant à l'entré du restaurant que pendant et après.
- Les employés sont très courtois et polis et heureux de travaillé.
- La nourritures vaut son prix! La quantité et le gout sont au rendez-vous, le gout reste dans la bouche!
- Endroit très confortable et facile de stationner.

Je le recommande à tous ceux qui veulent inviter ou faire une surprise à quelqu'un. C'est une place ou tout le monde y trouvera un plat qu'ils vont aimer! Il m'ont même fait aimé les bettraves ce que j'hais habituellement.

Bref c'est un 11/10, ma copine et moi sommes sortie de la le ventre bien plein.
