Syrian
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

Everything was absolutely spectacular, we ended up being 10min late for our reservation due to our Uber getting stuck. We call ahead to let them know and they were very appreciative. Once we arrived our table was ready immediately, service/food/drinks/atmosphere were on point. Highly recommended to anyone visiting Montreal, certainly a must stop

We went to Damas for our anniversary and were so happy with the whole experience! The service was attentive and the food was delicious! The ambience was also great- cozy and upscale at the same time. Don’t skip on a cocktail either! The ginger rose fizz was fantastic.

Enchanted! Loved everything about Damas. The food is Over the Moon and the tastes were so subtle, intricate, delicate, potent and satisfying. Everything was satisfying! Your staff is helpful , well mannered, entertaining, generous and versed in the variety of dishes and wines. Our waiter presented an excellent wine menu and we were thrilled w/ our Italian Le Piane maggiorina. Lovely! Superb and planning a return trip! Merci w/ love!

Cuisine d’Orient raffinée. Damas bat à plates coutures tous les restaurants du genre à Montréal, et de loin. Les plats sont pleins de créativité et très soignés. Tout est délicieux. Le service assuré par une jeune équipe fière de participer à l’aventure est excellent à tous points de vue. L’excellence, déclinée de toutes les façons.

The table next to us was too close, the guest seated on it was talking very loudly and swearing a lot, it was not something pleasant to listen to.

We were late but so pleased to still have a table. The service and food was absolutely amazing, thank you. The Argentinian shrimps, lentil mutabbara, yogurt and chickpea sauce and fattouch were out of this world.

We were pretty happy with our cocktails and most of the food was delicious. The service was good, but nothing extraordinary. For example, we never received new utensils or plates between starters and the main course. The main issue for me is that this restaurant is way overpriced.

The food was simply amazing. I don't usually write open table reviews but I just have to give kudos to Damas. This is probably the most delicious middle Eastern set of dishes I have ever eaten. Fattet Makdous is probably the best thing I ate there but that and the 4 cold mezzes combo would be enough for two people. The allepo kebab is very good also but not as delightful as the fattet. Either way one main and 4 cold mezzes is the way to go! Delicious.

Thank you for an amazing meal Damas!

Came in from Mississauga because I heard so many good things about this restaurant. It delivered.
The food was great and the service was excellent. Loved the livelihood of the service staff and each dish was fantastic.
