Amazing food. Beware the tasting menu, the largest courses are at the end!
Wonderful in every way. The attention to detail is the key in my opinion. Texture, flavour, presentation all well conceived. Can’t wait to go back.
Excellent as usual, food is the best in the city, ambiance, drinks etc. Excellent and highly recommended
Délicieux ! Tout est exquis ! Par contre la salle où nous étions était EXTRÊMEMENT bruyante. Pas reposant. La prochaine fois je demanderai une table dans une autre salle. En faisant le tour du resto on voit qu’il y’a des salles qui semblent plus tranquilles.
I have been to Damas several times in the past 2-3 years and honestly I think the service is deteriorating or is not the kind of service I appreciate . I feel a little bit of
« attitude » and prétentions by some of the staff ... last visit I asked for water 3 times and extra bread and when I finally got it there was a comment from the waiter « did you get all that you needed » in a condescending tone. My plate was taken away too quickly and it was a Tuesday nite so not the busiest. Perhaps I have to change my expectations as I will not be returning for a while !!! I feel that the price is very high for the level of service I received.
A special Dinner out should be a perfect combination of excellent (and unique) food, lively atmosphere and great service. Damas exceeded our expectations on all fronts. The hummus was outstanding and nothing like what I have had anywhere else. We tried Shish Taouk de Damas, Kabab d’Alep, Reesh and Fattet Mozat. It is difficult to rank order them - they were all excellent with unique aromas and spices. The service was great. The noise level was perhaps a bit too high but in the end - the food makes up for it!
Favorite restaurant ! Never disappointed ! Menu dégustation est un must. Excellentes suggestions de vin. Saveurs recherchées et toujours surprenantes. Un festin pour les papilles !
Amazing food and service! Will definitely recommend. The hummus, fattouch and baba ghannouj were the best I have ever had.
Damas never disappoints! Although you need to make RSVP quite a long time in advance, the patience will pay off in the end! The menu at Damas suggests very unique dishes, cocktails and wine. It is such a well-thought concept all in all, including the top notch service, food and drinks, and decoration. When I ate there for the first time, I was so fascinated about this place. Whenever I go back, I am always looking forward to it, and always satisfied. Definitely recommend to spend time and money there, it is all worth it!
Hummus with Mushrooms is a new incredible invention, in addition to the traditional plates of Damas.
Excellent food and great service. Good place for a pleasant meal.
Très bonne cuisine et excellent service
Dommage que le petit dessert d’anniversaire, non sollicité, ait été facturé. C’est une faute de goût à mon avis
Mis à part ça c’était formidable
Delicious, service 100% it’s a must. Never disappointed after all these times. One of the best restaurants in Montreal.
Great Culinary experience. Tasting menu was tremendous and more than enough food. Service was friendly and professional and food was extremely tasty and fresh.
We enjoyed one of the best meals we've ever eaten at Damas. We started with the Fattouch, which was bursting with fresh flavor—I would have been happy making a meal just of that. But we then ordered three lamb dishes—the Kabab d'Alep, the Friki, and the Fattet Mozat. The flavor of each was distinct and delicious, and the lamb melted in our mouths.
Our waiter was extremely helpful, and the service overall was impeccable.
Absolutely fantastic overall; we look forward to our return!
Go. Get the tasting menu. You won’t regret it!
The restaurant is too pricy for the quality of food it is providing. There is nothing too special about it. I tried it because of its reputation. HIs reputation is oversold and underdelivered. The presentation of the food was interesting, different and tasty but not worth the money. His service is excellent though. The staff are well knowlegable, well versed and courteous.
Relativement facile de stationner dans les rues autour.
J'y retourne souvent et je ne suis jamais déçue, malgré la facture salée :)
Excellent. The food, the service, the atmosphere and the decor; 10s across the board! Dare I say that this place may even rival homemade Syrian cuisine. It maintains the traditional aspects of Syrian cooking, yet elevates it with beautiful presentation. Thoroughly impressed with how outstanding every aspect of our meal was, especially the perfectly grilled lamb chops, fattoush salad and muhammara we were served. I highly recommend taking the tasting menu. This place is quite large and perfect for date nights and/or large gatherings. Each section feels private enough because the sound from the other areas of the restaurant doesn't really travel, so thankfully you can hear your dinner companions and servers quite clearly. Just do yourself a favour already and check it out.
I genuinely don't understand the hype around this place. I write about food for a living and enjoyed a lovely food-filled weekend in Montreal, but this place was extremely one-noted, forgettable, and bland (shocking for the type of cuisine). There was not a single standout from the tasting menu (other than the hummus). Perhaps we attended on an off night, but everything was uninspired and even more difficult to swallow with a large bill (thanks to overpriced wine). With so many other fabulous dining options, I wouldn't recommend.
Food wwas amazing, service was great. Really no downside at all. Definitely worth every penny.
Excellent food in a beautiful middle eastern decor. The fatoush salad and grilled lamb were wonderfully flavourful. Highly recommended.
Amazing restaurant, the food in the tasting menu was so good, same for the wine and the service with Vito who’s the best!
Food was delicious and well spiced, Service was excellent,
As usual the food and service was excellent. Noise level however is a little too much!! That’s why I prefer the outdoor terrace in the summer, bar seating in the winter.
Beautiful restaurant with great food, ambiance and service. Don’t bother trying the hummus, is good but there are other great things in the menu. We share the lamb dumplings and the octopus salad as first course and then shared the steak, which was a greeat steak but for flavors close to the theme I should have gone for the lamb. Next time...
The service was very attentive, the restaurant was already busy by 6:30 pm.
It is a little pricey but worth the experience.
Voila longtemps que je voulais essayer ce resto qui m'a été chaudement recommandé et donc mon expectative était très élevée. Je n'ai pass été déçue, au contraire.
La qualité est exceptionnelle et les plats copieux se partagent bien. Nous avons commandé 3 entrées et un plat principal pour trois et c'était suffisant( plus un dessert :)
Je tiens à souligner la gentillesse du serveur qui nous a conseillé avec doigté.
C'est un peu cher, mais ça vaut la peine. J'y retourne cet été ...pour essayer la terrasse!
It is always a pleasure to dine at Damas, the service is prompt and friendly, the food is exquisite, every bite filled with delight. The best fattouche ever.
Can’t wait to go back again.
Loved the ambiance, the friendly service and the delicious food, however, it took a long time to serve the main dish. Other than that, it was a great experience.
Amazing food amazing service , best place in town
A wonderful dining experience at Damas. The food was so tasty and service was perfect!
Delicious food and drinks. A must try.
The tasty menu was totally worthy as well as the coriander gin drink !
Excellent authentic experience! Delish menu and novel ambiance.
One of the best restaurant experiences I’ve ever had. Service and food were out of this world.
If you love food then eat here! The restaurant is beautiful and clearly deserves its reputation. The food is incredible. I went with a friend and we ordered the five course tasting menu that featured everything from a great fresh salad, freshly baked pita bread with dips to octopus and the most tender chicken ever. It was an incredible culinary experience.
A perfect meal and lovely time, but we were disappointed to pay $100 after tip and tax, for an excellent bottle of wine that can be purchased at 27 dollars.
This could be a disincentive for returning to Damas.
Une explosion de saveurs. Menu dégustation est digne de mention et un service à la hauteur d’un des meilleurs restaurants de Montréal
