I cannot say enough good things about this place - if you love mussels (like me) than this place is a MUST. I'm lucky to live in NYC and frequent this establishment whenever I get the urge - but if friends are visiting from out of town, this is the first place I take them. Recs: Thai (BEST), Parma (Second... More

I am a frequent visitor to both branches in NY and I have to commend the managers for the consistent quality of the mussel dishes on offer. I must confess that in about the 2 dozen times I have eaten here, I have only ever eaten the mussel dishes - so I cannot comment on the other food. The large... More

What a fantastic place! The mussels are just so delicious, it couldn't be better really! We went there on a buzzing Thursday night. It's a tiny place with a lot of noise. I didn't quite understand how it ended up being so loud given there wasn't very loud background music, but the food got me completely carried away from the... More

We absolutely agree with all the other reviews for this fabulous restaurant. We visited on a Monday night before Christmas and bar a slightly annoying issue of being ignored by the hostess and having to pay for our first drinks at the bar, we loved the food and service once seated. Flex Mussels is a perfect size and is able... More

Visited with my partner and her adult daughter today 26 December during a Christmas Visit to NYC. The location is good between 6 and 7 avenue at 13th street on a street with a number of other restaurants albeit fairly quiet. Don't let this put you off from the outside is very unassuming but great inside. On entering a modern... More

My husband loved his Mussels. The service was great. My husband said he felt like he was at a concert. It was so loud inside it gave him a headache. I overheard every detail of the guy's operation next to us at a table. The food does not make up for the lack of romance and the noise level. For... More

Delicious mussels. Place does get crowed so was quite a wait but worth it. Don't miss the different kind of doughnuts for dessert, perfect after a big pail of mussels.

Happy hour is a deal and a half! You can't go wrong with the wine or service. Our favs are the Thai & Fra Diavolo.

Brought my wife and daughter here for dinner during a recent visit to New York and what a great choice it turned out to be. We are mussel fans and this venue had every variety of preparation you could wish for. The food was absolutely delicious, the atmosphere convivial, and the service both efficient and friendly. We will be back.
