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

Great dinning experience. We did the 15 course tasting menu, it was worth every penny. Highly recommended at least eating here once.

Service impeccable, courtois et toujours avec le sourire. Excellente expérience culinaire. Parfois un peu bruyant mais on s’ajuste. Nous répéterons l’expérience!
Merci et au plaisir!

If you ever take the tasting menu (15 plates), it's good to know that it's borderline too much food. At the end, we almost roll ourselves out the restaurant :) It reallllly worth your money.

Un repas au Damas est une expérience pour tous les sens. Les mets, l’ambiance, le service; un amalgame incroyable qui contribue à bâtir notre plaisir tout au long du repas. Il faut cependant s’y prendre très tôt pour retenir une table!

The food was good - I have celiac (so I have to eat gluten-free) and the restaurant couldn't modify the tasting menu to accommodate which was really disappointing. The reasoning was that they cook pitas on the same grill, but I feel like a restaurant of this class should be able to make that adjustment. The lamb hummus was good, although the lamb was a bit on the dry side. The filet mignon was good and the combo with baba ganoush was really interesting. The service was ok - we sat at the bar. Sometimes we had to flag down the server to order more drinks. The cocktails were also ok - good, but not amazing. Overall it was missing the wow-factor that I was expecting. For the price point, there are better restaurants in Montreal.

Had the awesome grilled Seafood platter. Almost perfect except that it cooled off very quickly as it was served on a cold metal tray.

We ordered the seafood platter and unfortunately everything was cold when it got to us. The waiter mentioned they could reheat it, but we didn’t accept as the food would of been overcooked. They offered us a free dessert, coffee and shooter (we skipped the dessert). The waiter was nice, but we were disappointed in the food itself, although it tasted good it was cold grilled seafood.

The restaurant itself is beautifully decorated, the bathroom was spotless and the table was laid out perfectly. Our servers were very attentive and knowledgeable, and explained in detail all the dishes and various wines we were served (we chose the four course tasting menu, with wine pairing). And the food! The presentation of each dish was beautiful and only surpassed by the taste. By the end, we were both completely sated. The wines chosen meshed perfectly with each course. Although I was a bit worried by the fact that only 2 1/2 hours is allowed for each sitting, we were not rushed, and were able to enjoy an after-dinner coffee and tisane without feeling we should hurry. All in all, a lovely evening, and although it is quite pricey, I hope to be able to go there again. It was worth it!

Food is to die for. We love the lamb hummus, dumplings, best fattouche salad in the world,the fried cheese appetizer. Fish is delectable & well prepared. Kibbe was nothing special. The ambience is wonderful & always knowledgeable,personable wait staff. Yummm!

Very tasty well executed dishes. Kibbeh nayeh could have been spicier.
Wine list too costly, cheapest bottle being $60 and.not even in stock.
Cost of mezzes too high especially for fried chickpea kibbeh but very tasty nonetheless.
Lamb shank was very good.
Better value at for example, Beroya in Laval.

Overall very good but better value can be found elsewhere.
Worth trying if you can afford it.

Still a very good restaurant. But I find compared to my last few visits the food was much less impressive and while overall good some dishes really missed the mark (the shish taouk chicken was salted to the point of being almost inedible, the ceviche was rubbery). The service was also a lot more spotty and less attentive than usual. Makes it hard to justify the steep price point.

Excellent service from our waiter.
The wine waiter was ridiculous....no advice given, we were told by our waiter there was new wine not on the menu; he did not know what we were talking about.
We finally ordered a wine that we knew.

Everything was outstanding : the food, the staff, the drinks, the decor, just everything. We took the 12 tasting dishes and, oh boy, we were really amazed! My boyfriend eats A LOT usually and he was full. The servers explained each plate to us with so much details and they were always around to make sure everything was perfect. I would totally go back and recommend this place to anyone.

Went to this restaurant with friends and we had reserved for 6, however a 7th person came and the staff was extremely accommodating and friendly and sweet. They offered us the coffees and teas and dessert on the house, which was so nice of them! The food was delicious and amazing and had the best time!!

The food was nice in general but the ceviche was not very well done. The cold lentil balls were not to our taste.
