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

Had 8.30pm reservation and didn't get water or even put in drink order until 9pm. After appetisers we waited 45mins for main course. Didn't get out of there until 10.40 and had no dessert. Service was excruciatingly slow and not at all charming.

Amazing food and service. Took my 6 yr old, who also loved every bite. Lamb was the best I've ever eaten. We sat on the patio, which was much quieter than the inside of the restaurant, and the weather was perfect for it.

Damas never disappoints. Food is scrumptious! We were only 2 people so couldn’t order as many dishes as we wanted. Tasting menu is always a great option but way too much food for me to handle. I loved Damas even at their old location and now it is beyond amazing!

As always, food was superb. My only complaint is that when you try to call the restaurant, you have to leave a message and they seldom return the call. As well, it is very difficult to make a reservation or inquiry if you can’t speak to anyone!

Si vous souhaitez découvrir la cuisine syrienne, le restaurant Damas vous rendra heureux! La qualité des plats jumelé à leur présentation sont les caractéristiques principales de ce restaurant. Les mets sont goûteux, bien assaisonnés et très santé! De plus le décor est coloré, les chaises sont confortables ce qui favorise une ambiance optimale. Nous y avons passé un moment très agréable!

We are a group of 4 people, including an 80 years old lady. Since we do not understand the contents and portion of the dishes on the menu, we had to rely on the waitress’ recommendations to order. She suggested us to order 4 appetizers, i.e. a salad, red pepper paste, eggplants and dumplings. We wanted to have a mixed grill platter for main course (we extended to 4 pieces for each kind of meats and the price adjusted from $110 to $140). We told the waitress that we had big lunch and asked if we should cut some appetizers. She said we should be good. However we found later that the eggplant she suggested us to order actually came with the mixed grill platter, we don’t understand why we should order it separately. After having the filling 4 appetizer (the red pepper paste and eggplant came with nan), we found it a great pity that we could not finish the mixed grill platter in the restaurant and had to pack the unfinished portion back to hotel. We all agreed that we should order 2 appetizers instead of 4, so that we could enjoy the mixed grill platter more. However, the salad, dumplings and mixed grill platter tasted wonderful.

We wildly over ordered. It would be helpful to get more accurate guidance from wait staff on the volume of each selection. It is definitely a Sharing restaurant and this should be emphasised.

I am 72 years old and well-traveled. I can honestly say that this was the best restaurant meal of my life!
We enjoyed the tasting meal which included more food than we could eat! Fortunately, our hotel had a fridge and microwave that allowed us to enjoy another meal the next day. Unique and memorable dishes.

Amazing food, amazing service. I experienced anaphylaxis (severe allergic reaction) to octopus during my dinner at a Damas (first time this happens to me) and the manager escorted me and my party to the nearest pharmacy to immediately get Benadryl. Saved my life! Life is short, savor it. While the octopus proved to be lethal for me, it was delicious while it lasted. Will definitely return in the future.
