    Tasting menu was fantastic paired with the exceptional wine pairing. Not a single bite of food or sip of wine was a miss. Damas is the true gem of Montreal. Don’t forget to ask them for their homemade hot sauce which was addicting.

    Not only is one of the best Middle Eastern restaurants you will eat at, it’s one of the best restaurants of any cuisine you will eat at. Simple as that. Food is outstanding, tasty and high quality. Not cheap but worth every penny. Good wine list too.

    Menu dégustation poisson commandé. Tout est très bon et sublime. Pieuvre wow! Accord avec vin parfait (et je suis difficile a ce niveau) Serveurs très gentils et attentionnés - sommelier impeccable- mais le rythme de service des plats est trop rapide. Beaucoup de nourriture et on a à peine le temps de souffler que le nouveau plat arrive. Un peu de confusion aussi parfois (on a reçu un dessert avec chandelle alors que c'est à la table à côté qu'ils célébraient un anniversaire!) Mais c'est sympathique et le resto s'est bien repris en rapportant un autre gâteau au jubilaire ! Donc on en rit et ca fait juste du bien. Comme tout autre resto les prix ont bcp augmenté dans la dernière année. Expérience très très bien mais qu'on ne peut pas se permettre de répéter très souvent malheureusement. Calculer 300$ par pers pour dégustation +vin+ taxes et service.

    It is one of my favourite restaurants in Montreal and it is normally a wonderful experience. I always bring friends here that have never tried it before. The food was great with rich flavors, and good portions and the service was very neutral (slower than normal). The wine list was elaborate but the mark-up on the wine was one of the primary reasons that I would reconsider before going back.

    The food and cocktails were outstanding. Staff was attentive and .add good suggestions when we asked. We order the shawarma hummus which was fantastic (Seriously, I am ruined for other hummus) and the mixed grill for two, which was also amazing. Portions were very generous. It is pricey, but worth it once and a while as a splurge dinner.

    The food was excellent and so was the service. However it was so noisy that it was hard to have a conversation. Prices are also a bit too high. Almost $40 for 'fatoush' , which is basically a salad, id a bit much!

    We love everything about Damas- the food is beautifully presented and so incredible tasting. The service is superb and the ambiance is charming and warm. What caught us all by surprise is the steep increase in prices since the last few times we dined here. Damas has always been an expensive restaurant and we are fine with that but this recent increase is huge. Too much and too fast, we think. This may deter some customers from choosing to come but otherwise , Damas remains one of our most favorites places.

    Nous avons choisi le menu dégustation à 160$ par personne avec accord mets-vins à 85$ par personne Très bons vins. Toutefois, les deux plats de poissons n'étaient pas à la hauteur (crevettes très sèches et lieu fade, sans goût). Pastirma trop raide. Kibbeh neyyeh et plat de viande (Kibbeh grillé, kabab, Shish taouk et agneau) excellents, ainsi que les bouchées de pistaches. Mais globalement, prix beaucoup trop élevé pour la qualité et la saveur des mets.
