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

Le premier restaurant que je recommanderais en ville. Nourriture aux saveurs et d’une qualité exceptionnelles.

Le service est une expérience en soi également. Le personnel est affable, agréable, courtois… et hyper sympathique même.

Nb. Pas pour un petit budget mais, pour une gâterie, ce restaurant en vaut la dépense

First time here for our babymoon and the meal was delicious! Ordered a cold mezza, hot mezza, grill and main (1 from each category) as recommended by our server (who was so kind). Hummus, yummy! Falafel, the BEST falafel I have ordered at a restaurant.

Amazing service. I have a lot of dietary restrictions and the staff were more than happy to go out of their way and make sure I had multiple options of what to eat. Felt very good and taken care of. Amazing service and incredible food.

Excellent mezzé pour profiter des saveurs moyen-orientales.
Le service est aux petits soins avec un petit bémol pour le sommelier, un peu condescendant.
Une excellente soirée!

Service amical, flexible et attentionné. Nous avons pu changer de table à notre convenance dans un coin plus intime sur une table en hauteur. La nourriture est pleine de saveurs et de fraîcheur. L’agneau dans le fattet mozat était un peu gras par contre, mais parfait dans le fattet makdous. Le pain est cuit sur place à volonté.

Over valued. The food is not that great, lack of spies.
Cannot justified the price. Dissapointed to be honest. Maybe we didn’t choose the good dishes?

The service was really disappointing, and it’s a crucial part of the experience. It was curteous, but inexperienced. We felt pressured to share dishes, as we were told repetitively it was more convenient. We weren’t informed about the size of our dishes and how a dish was repeated twice. Cutlery and plates were sometimes missing so we couldn’t start eating. We were interrupted as they cleared the table at different times and as people were still eating. We had to ask for more bread. The quality of the service did not match the food or the reputation of the restaurant.

My first time visit in this beautiful restaurant.
We ordered one tasting menu for two but our waiter didn’t get that right!
By the third course, we were already full and couldn’t enjoy the rest, all to find out he orders TWO tasting menus.
We are two healthy middle aged women size 6!!! Anyhow, when we received the bill, we realized he made a huge mistake! ($186 later) we will enjoy our leftovers but NEVER again!
About the food: lots oh hummus based courses, so you better like hummus.
The desert is seriously small and monotonous!
