The food was delicious. Our first time there and we did the 85 dollar tasting menu. Everything that came out was very delicious and they made sure you were full before leaving.
We didnt know what to expect from Syrian food as we never had it before. When the food came out it was just great tasting food. The service was amazing.
100% must try and would recommend to people who are foodies.
We are from Toronto and we definitely will be back.
The steak dish was my personal favorite.
the food was amazing. Really tasty, not even close to what we might have tasted in the past (salads, meat, etc)
Everything was perfect. Worth the price. 14 different meals on the tasting menu. More than what we have been able to eat.
Always outstanding food is great my favourite restaurant in Montreal
The waiter did not explain the menu well, we ordered far too much food and the dish I ordered for myself was enough for 5 people, it was upsetting. If you dine here, the food is excellent but it is best to share dishes as many are vastly too much for one person, especially if you have had appetizers. I have eaten here 5 times and find the waiters in general are friendly but terrible at actually helping you understand the menu. Proceed with caution. Ask lots of questions.
Le point retiré est uniquement dû à une carte de vin et choix pas très bonne. Le vin, même si nous prenons les dispendieux, ne sont pas très bon pour la nourriture servie. Cela devrait être un restau apportez son vin afin d'avoir de bonnes bouteilles pour connaisseurs.
Food was delicious and service was good, but I am extremely disappointed in one thing: I called during the day specifically to preorder a cake for my wife's birthday such that I wouldn't have to get up from the table in an obvious way. The hostess assured me that they would notify the waiter.
The waiter never brought my wife her cake. It's really important to treat your clientele with the attention they deserve, especially at the price we're paying! I know that I will never trust the restaurant management again for something so important to me.
Great food and presentation. Service was great overall, also enjoyed wine list.
Excellent restaurant. We had the tasting menu and loved it. Contrary to other reviews, we did not find it at all sparse — in fact the opposite.
Damas has a creative chef. The service was excellent. On the expensive side for Montreal but we really enjoyed it.
Excellent and fantastic as usual. Best resto in Mtl.
Good food good environment
Very clean restaurant with respect to all the staff
Delicious dinner. Nice atmosphere. Our waiter was friendly and helpful to start but not as attentive as the meal progressed.
My favorite restaurant !!! Service was excellent!!
Really good, but it was a little bit expensive for what it was. I would still recommend Damas, and I am always willing to spend on a great experience, but for the price point there are better options.
Première expérience en famille au chaleureux restaurant Damas. Nous tenons à féliciter le service exceptionnel de chaque employés qui nous a fait découvrir, une cuisine syrienne savoureuse. Bravo à toute l'équipe! Longue vie au restaurant Damas!
Everything about this restaurant is fantastic. I’ve never tried Syrian food and was blown away by all the different flavors. Ask the helpful staff for suggestions. You won’t be disappointed!
We tried the tasting menu for the first time and were very pleased. Our guests were very impressed with the food, service and ambiance.
Eating at Damas restaurant is always a unique and outstanding culinary experience! Each dish is presented like a work of art, a feast to the eyes and the palate...
Excellent service, deux de nos plats étaient beaucoup trop vinaigrés. De plus le prix des plats principaux est exagéré. On pousse beaucoup sur la marchandise. Excellent dessert, carte des vins intéressante mais dispendieuse.
Probably the best Syrian cuisine this side of the continent. However knowing Syrian cuisine intimately... it is way way way overpriced. $22 for a fatouch Salad! Really? My wife and I left with a $260 bill and no wine! Just a small Arak. But then again... the ambiance is outstanding.
Hands down the best meal I’ve ever had. Chefs tasting menu was phenomenal. Too much food but the variety and flavor palate was incredible.
Everything was perfection! The food was amazing, the decor beautiful and the service fantastic!
One of the best restaurants in montreal. the octopus , lamb chops, fatoush salad and the view of the explodig flames from the grill bar in the background is a super cozy experience. Enjoyed a great service and I highly recommend this place.
Delicious traditional Syrian food presented in high class presentation with a great ambience. Waiters are attentive and cheerful. They always explain the food they bring.
We tried the “ menu degustation”. It was excellent. You might think the portions are small at first but during the five-course meal you’ll enjoy several plates every round, where you’d have the right room for dessert. You’ll feel full and happy.
Damas was one of the best dining experiences I've ever had. Excellent service, creative dishes and a great wine list.
Wow! Damas was recommended to us by Sophie, our 10 year old granddaughter from San Francisco who had eaten there with her family last summer. Needless to say we were intrigued - a young California girl giving such a positive recommendation for a Montreal Syrian restaurant - it had to be investigated.
We almost cancelled our reservation when my wife discovered how far it was from our Old Montreal accommodation - a 25 minute, $20 Uber ride - but I said I didn’t want to be the one to tell Sophie that we had bailed, so off we went.
We knew from the minute we walked in the door that we were in for a special evening. Our waiter, Vito, told us that, while the food was excellent, the service was sort of ho-hum at best. To me, that sort of self-deprecating humour is only used by people who are supremely confident in their ability to deliver superb service. And that is exactly what Vito did. He delivered exquisite food, faultlessly.
We opted for the ‘full tasting dinner’. Course after course (I lost count after 8 or 9). Each one unique, perfect, delicious. Our favourites were the octopus and the lamb. Who would ever expect to find perfectly cooked, fresh octopus at a Syrian restaurant in Montreal? I love octopus and this was as good as any I’ve had anywhere.
Our final course was a new dessert that they were trying out. I can’t remember anything about it, but it was perfect like everything else.
So there you have it - Damas, a Syrian restaurant in Montreal, recommended without reservation by a 10 year old girl in California and a pair of 75 year olds from British Columbia. Go to Damas - expensive but darn well worth it.
Absolutely faultless, irreproachable service
One of the best restaurant in the world
Always amazing food and outstanding service simply the best
Visiting Montreal from Florida and went to four great restaurants but this one was the best.
Une excellente adresse Montréalaise.
Tout est parfait ,ce qui est vraiment rare.
Damas is a great restaurant. I have had the tasting menu as well as à la carte menu and everything is fresh, high quality ingredients and the taste is absolutely delicious. The mix of flavors in their speciality dishes is amazing. The service is also great. You are always taken care of. Thank you again for a wonderful evening. You made my husband's birthday very special one!
We try to go here every time we go to Montreal (and always recommend it to friends) and have not been even remotely close to disappointed yet. This is a great spot for super high quality food in a fun environment. You may have had Syrian cuisine before, but the quality of ingredients, preparation methods and level of service puts this right up there with the best restaurants not only in Montreal, but in North America. For us the mixed grill is a must. Perfectly cooked lamb and chicken. The mezze features homemade pita. The deserts are divine. All this with a great wine list and helpful sommelier. Do not pass go. Eat here.
Excellent first time experience. Food was great! Lively and really enjoyed the service. That said, found it a little pricey for what was served. Might think twice about going back. But definitely did not regret it.
For the price maybe service should be better, staff should pay attention to requests and not just rush to fill orders without any thought. Also hot mezes should be hot and not served cold?? Overall used to be great but find declined in service
Great food! Lively atmosphere! Just GO! We were a group of four and had a memorable evening! Staff was very helpful in selecting dishes and wine that we were unfamiliar with.
Incredible. Likely the best restaurant in the city, easily top twenty five in North America.
Not only was the food beyond delicious but the service was extraordinary. A must in Montreal!
Food was good.
Service was awful by our waiter...he judged us because we were not in a mood to drink..he kept asking a lot about what we want to order and pushed about having a drink even after we said no ! Then we wanted dessert and told him to give us a couple of minutes as we just finished our main dishes...he never came back. He rather served other customers who ordered wine. We had to ask our bills to someone else. Then the waiter came (of course!!!) when I pointed him that we never heard about desserts he replied: « it will be for next time » it was so unprofessional and arrogant that we didn’t give him tips
And it was our first and will be the last visit to this restaurant!
Excellent Syrian food. Service was prompt and efficient. Floor manager Alan spent time with guests from each table. The restaurant was a bit dark and I could not read the menu but the wait staff’s recommendation was excellent. I want to go back and try their tasting menu.
