The hype is true. My husband and I came here for our anniversary and got the tasting menu. It was exceptional! The wine, the food, and the superior service all made for one of the most memorable meals of our life. Can’t recommend enough!

Description
Damas, an upscale Syrian restaurant located on Avenue Van Horne. 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.
