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

First off, i need to disclose that i am Lebanese and this is the type of food that i eat everyday so my opinion may be biased. My husband is Italian and he wanted to try Damas to see what the hype is all about. YOU NEED TO TRY THIS PLACE. The service is impeccable, the decor is stunning and the music is not loud so you can have a conversation with friends/partner. We did the tasting menu for 120$/person. Sooooo much food that for the last course we told our waitress to pack it up because we couldn’t anymore, we were gonna explode. All in all, it’s sooo delicious. Best fatoosh salad I’ve had... but everything else is very good. My mom makes the same food and it’s just as good or even better Our bill came out to 390$ with tip (glass of wine 18$, Lebanese beer, and 2 san pellegrino’s). I suggest you go as a large group and share everything. The bill may end being cheaper. Our waitress was fantastic. Just a little mishap where a random water came to fill up our water but he poured tap water in my sparkling water glass. All in all a place to try but if you’re middle eastern and always eating this type of food- just come to try it to say you’ve tried it. It hurts my heart to pay 20$ for hummus.

As always a great experience: both the service and the food is exceptional.However even on a cold Wednesday night the place is packed and the noise level is high.

It was our first time at Damas. Our waiter was Gabriel Ghaleb and I have one thing to say : his service was excellent. We spent a really nice evening, the food was amazing and the waiter was always here when we had questions. He really added a value to the experience. It’s really something to do again. Thank you for this amazing experience !

Great ambiance and service. Food was good but not worth the 100$/ person tasting menu for 2! Appetizers were great. Main dishes were good but when you serve large pieces of chicken beside 3-4 tiny pieces of beef and lamb, the experience cheapens! At the end we got 1 piece of dessert each...wow talk about further downgrading the experience. Oh and the menthe tea tasted just hot water and we were charged 2$ each for that. I mean if you are serving a 200$ menu, do you really need to charge 4$ for a shooter glass of hot water? Hahaha

I don’t think Damas needs reviews anymore as it’s always great: the food, the service and everything in between. It’s absolutely one of the best in Montreal and maybe in Canada.

It was our first time there and we loved it! It was quite busy for a Wednesday night but it’s not surprising! The food, the service... it was all impeccable! My only constructive feedback would probably be to include more vegetarian options :)

How can I award Damas a million stars? Literally a dining EXPERIENCE. We were a little apprehensive to try Serbian, but it was so FRESH, perfectly-portioned, a tantalizing mix of flavors+textures+colors. Truly one of life’s memorable meals. It’s super chill, not pretentious AT ALL, and the waiters, owners, everyone are just great humans who care about customers, and great food.

Even the 5pm reservation was perfect. It’s that epic.

Un des meilleurs restaurants que j'ai essayé à Montréal. La nourriture est EXQUISE!!!! Le service parfait. Le gérant et le personnel de salle sont très attentionnés. L'ambiance est tout simplement parfaite. Le décor est magnifique. Je travaille dans le domaine de la restauration depuis 30 ans et j'ai été plus qu'impressionnée par l'ensemble de ma soirée. Magnifique à tout point de vue! Merci!

Good experience in general. However for the steak dish the portion of french fries was for 1 person while the steak is for 2 persons. As for the water man, it's better to fill the glass when it's almost empty, not after every sip. the food was fresh and tasty.

We were expecting your standard middle eastern eatery but instead, were were pleasantly surprised with service, food and ambiance. Its rare that you come out feeling that it was worth the money you spent for the meal.

Everything was absolutely spectacular, we ended up being 10min late for our reservation due to our Uber getting stuck. We call ahead to let them know and they were very appreciative. Once we arrived our table was ready immediately, service/food/drinks/atmosphere were on point. Highly recommended to anyone visiting Montreal, certainly a must stop

We went to Damas for our anniversary and were so happy with the whole experience! The service was attentive and the food was delicious! The ambience was also great- cozy and upscale at the same time. Don’t skip on a cocktail either! The ginger rose fizz was fantastic.
