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

Damas was great and the food was excellent! Service was great too. The only con was that it was not ideal to converse unless you have to yell at each other. Wish the restaurant was more quiet in noise level.

Excellent food - we had the mouhammara, falafel, and tatar borek (lamb-stuffed dumplings). Everything was well cooked, had incredible flavour, and the presentation was fantastic. Service was superb - I don't think my water class dropped below 3/4 full during the entire meal! Will definitely go again soon :)

Les portions des repas principaux sont assez généreuses. Nous étions trois personnes et nous avions pris deux entrées et deux plats principaux et on trouvait ça beaucoup trop. Prochaine fois, je prendrai deux entrées et un plat principal à partager. Les cocktails sont aussi super bon donc je vous recommande de les essayer.

The food was outstanding. We took the tasting menu for 4 people. I recommend. You get to try a little bit from everything. It was a lot of food, but worth it. The service was exceptional. Everyone was very welcoming and courteous.
Will definitely go again.

I don’t have anything negative to say about this restaurant . I came for Valentine’s Day and everything was excellent : the service, the food , the decor, the servers, the ambiance . If someone comes for the first time, I would suggest to try the tasting menu. It is expensive but it is worth it. You will be full before you finish.

Une soirée extraordinaire pour la fête d’une amie. Une soirée entre filles mémorable.
Service hors paire et la nourriture est succulente.
Un resto incontournable.
Le Damas est unique.
Merci d’être a l’écoute de vos clients.

We tried the tasting menu. Food in general was excellent. Only one thing wasn't good, the octopus, it was very dry and hard to chew. But the rest of the 14 different items we had were from good to excellent. Service was great. After mentionning the situation with the octopus being off par, we had its price deducted from our bill. Will return and I highly recommend.

I have never had a better meal than the tasting menu we had at Damas. We enjoyed 14 different dishes that showed us a variety if not every aspect of their menu and each was better than the next. From the appetizers to the dessert we had a variety of delicious, perfectly cooked dishes that showed the restaurant's and the chef's flair for knowing how to please a customer not only with the taste but also with the visual look of each dish.
It can show you that when food is prepared right, even the most discerning person will try the food. I, myself do not like lamb nor beets and my wife does not like octopus but there were 3 lamb dishes, 1 beet dish and 1 octopus dish and we each tried them and they were all amazing.

I would DEFINITELY recommend this restaurant to anyone would wants a culinary experience they will never forget.

The food, service, ambience and all are fine (although the food is down a teensy notch from the old location - based on one experience at the new location). The prices are really out of reach and I would not come back except for a very special occasion. I would recommend it to people for special occasions.
It used to be an outstanding neighbourhood restaurant - now it is really a specialty restaurant which must compete with others of the same type and scale.

One of the best dining experiences EVER. Not a cheap dinner but money well, well spent. Fabulous service (attentive but not hovering) and very friendly. Had the tasting menu and didn't have a single bite that was less-than tasty. Highly recommend.

If this place was good for a second.. Not anymore!! See the picture of that "steak" we had (in comments).. Swimming in grease, tastless and ugly.. The appetizers were worse than ready made from the store and the waters didn't know about the menu and didn't care.. Four of us agreed that we would rather stayed home and donated the 500$ to SPCA than wasting our time, money and well-being there

Just love this restaurant, will always recommend it. A creative way of eating middle eastern cuisine, mix of flavors yet very authentic.
One thing that I have to mention as it's my second time around to Damas, it's nearly IMPOSSIBLE to get early reservations.
