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

The restaurant has very nice decor and was spacious.y friend and I opted to share our meals. The wine menu was small considering we ordered by the glass but certainly something for everyone’s taste! We started with the larger Fatoush salad (yummy and a good portion to share). Next up was the shared mains- Shish Taouk and the Senegal giant shrimp. The shish taouk was served with 3 tiny dollops of garlic mayo and pita bread. The chicken was very tender and tasty. The shrimp was served with saffron infused rice with some grilled cauliflower and onions. The rice was very dense and flavourless as was the cauliflower unfortunately. The giant shrimp wasn’t anything special.
Would I dine here again? Probably not considering I didn’t find the value and taste to be there. The service was ok- when the waiter asked how the meal was, we told him we weren’t crazy about the shrimp dish (90$ btw), he didn’t flinch or try to offer an alternative.

My husband and I are regulars. Practically everyone there knows us. The place is simply are our favourite in town. We used to take the tasting menu from time to time and it always surpassed our expectations. Recently the restaurant made some drastic changes to the menu, upping the price and downgrading the choices. Antep kebab was removed, despite being a major hit. The sea bass fish is now grilled rather than served as their spectacular samakeh harreh. It tastes bland. The giant grilled shrimp tasted bitter and was terrible. The octopus was not good either. Even the friki and lamb chops are noticeably smaller in size. Management is advised to reconsider the whole menu was it is very poor we it is. For two persons we paid around 300 dollars but we feel we did not get good value in return.

Damas was an absolute pleasure. The decor transfers you to another place to prepare you to a world of flavours and the most incredible twist on middle eastern food. Absolutely loved the whole experience

The tasting menu is an incredible walk through Syrian food that also comes in sufficient volume that when you leave, you are completely satisfied with your meal. Each course is incredible and interesting and presented with a thorough explanation, I couldn't recommend it more.

We had an amazing experience at Damas. Our table was ready when promised. The service is just immaculate!!! The manager was chatting with us and suggested food options for us! And wow the food was amazing! We will be coming back here next time we visit Montreal! Overall, one of the best restaurants we’ve been to!

Impressive dining experience; food and drinks were beyond excellent, thoughtful and attentive service, thumbs up all around. On the high side of the budget, but truly worth it in my opinion. Have already reserved a table for the next outing.

If you plan on going, you will not be disappointed! I had the tasting menu and it was worth every penny. The cocktails were fabulous, and the service was top notch.

Book in advance! Especially if travelling - you will not want to miss out on this unique (and delicious!) dining experience.

We were three people and we all took the tasting menu for 95$/person. The portions were large and well flavored.
The only minor feedback is the meat dishes (beef, chicken), were somewhat bland and were not cooked to right texture (i.e. the beef was chewy, chicken was tender but flavourless). The dessert was understated and would like to have had something more intricate to compliment the dishes we had (i.e Knaffe would have been a better option).

In overall, the food, service, presentation, and varieties were exceptional. Definitely looking forward to returning, but will pick out specific dishes as opposed to the tasting menu.

Everything was excellent! If I may just make one comment, I have been coming to Damas for the past few years and noticed on my last visit that no one came to take our costs at the entrance. On my second to last visit, I mentioned that it was my husband's 40th birthday And some effort made to recognize this milestone would have been appreciated. For the price paid, some additional attention to detail is expected. Otherwise, superb food, ambiance and service! Our waiter was excellent!
