Food is just great. Modernized middle easter food. Trendy vibe.
This is not my first visit and every time I go I just love it.
The food is excellent and the staff always willing to help.
The pita bread is the real thing and unlike anything else I've had before.
The Sumac French Fries are excellent as well.
Baba Ganoush is very good as well as the chicken and the salads.
This is a few steps above the typical Lebanese restaurant we have in Montreal.
Can wait to go back!!!!!!!
Won't be back unless things improve.
Love middle eastern food, and kept seeing this one recommended.
Had late lunch (2pm) on a Friday afternoon. Serious problem with acoustics. Although the restaurant was nearly empty, the noise level was deafening. Every conversation + music echoing & reverbing off the high bare walls.
Service was less than stellar. Although the restaurant was empty, the server refused to turn down the music and seemed completely unconcerned that the noise level was too high. Having to order at the counter was a bit weird, given that there were lots of servers. A different server offered us hot sauce, which we both accepted, but forgot to come back with it until we were finished eating.
I quite liked the food, especially the walnut puree thing. The kefta was good, the hummous very creamy, and the cooked salad was rich. Though pricey if you're used to Boustan, Amir, or Basha, everything was tasty.
It seems to have potential, good food, good location, fresh airy decor, but the execution is off. Must do something with the acoustics. And the sourpuss servers.
Think I'll just go back to Boustan for now.
Tried it once, no need to go back. I only wanted to try the Falafel, that was recommended in a Gazette article. It was very tasty, as was the Baba and Hummus and pita. The fried eggplant 'salad' left much to desire. The chicken tasted like Chinese 5-spice chicken, and was almost disturbingly moist/soft (like at a Chinese buffet).
The service was quick and friendly although the ordering setup with the one cash register needs to be changed. What is stopping them from having their numerous servers taking orders from clients sitting down, at the tables? (considering this is how you order more food or drinks, if you wish).
My suggestion: get a takeout order of the hummus & baba & pita and pick up some chicken from Adonis to make at home.
The ambiance and the restaurant was great! Simple as it gets in terms of decorations, yet that is what I like. The food in general was delicious, unlike many other restuarants who have a heavy hand on the salt, Sumac was perfect on the salt. At last a restaurant that doesn't rely on only salt for flavor.
Our meal arrived to our table in a matter of 10-15 mins, while the restaurant was packed. So I was impressed with that. While our meal was very tasty, it lacked warmth. It wasn't cold, but borderline of being cold. Nothing was too warm. Disappointing!!
My biggest disappointments: The method of ordering your food and the dessert. When you walk into the restaurant you first have to wait for a table, then order at the counter. There was one person with one cash taking all the orders. Because they only have one cash available. When you have a full house of 40+ people, you need more staff than just one person taking all the orders. So we waited 20-25 mins for our table, plus another 10 minutes to place our order. Very disappointing!!
Our dessert was the Nutella brownie, with a cinnamon whipped cream not at all a Lebanese dessert yet, I was curious to try it. My question is.. Where was the Nutella? I honestly didn't taste one bit of of it! Luckily the whip cream was not out of can or spray, at last a restaurant that uses the real thing! Yet, it lacked taste. Bottom line, Sumac opened very recently and it needs time to make some improvements. My biggest suggestion to them, serve the food warm and not dry and semi-warm.
The best thing: Their Hummus, Felafel and, all their salads. They were superb!!!
Tried this restaurant but would not go back. The food was less than average, and definitely not worth the price. I get better middle Eastern food at the fast food chains than that restaurant. It's inevitable to wait for more than half an hour as you can't make a reservation. The ambiance is loud, not in a good way, and the music (hip-hop) really not suiting the place. Tried the kafta, the meat was chewy and dry. The mouhammara (red pepper paste with walnuts) was good, the baba ghannouj (eggplant side dish) was average, and salads average or less than. The owner was there and was very rude.
