is place is a hidden gem. It was a bit of a trek from Midtown where we were staying, but it was worth it. Clearly very popular, it was full of couples and groups of friends enjoying the menu. I'd recommend booking in advance, although having arrived at about 9.30pm we were able to get a table for two quite... More

WOW, this place is a gem!! If you like mussels and seafood, look no further! My partner and I started with some oysters. We told the waiter what kind of oysters we like and he delivered. Everything was very fresh. We then shared one order of mussels and the fish and chip and both of the entrees were amazing. For... More

The title of my review says it all! I'm visiting nyc and my husband's been raving about this place ever since he ate here 2 years back. And boy did it live up to all that expectation! We called for the Thai and Dijon with parmesan and truffle fries on the side and some baby carrots to go with it.... More

I have been here a twice since moving to New York City. My girlfriend and I went last night and go the the Tuna Tartar, Octopus appetizers (both amazing), the Fra Diavolo(a) and the Parma mussel dishes, and the small donut platter. The mussels are to die for; the Parma, Fra Diavolo(a) and the San Daniele are life changing. The... More

My new fave place in the City! My roomie messaged me at work the other night, wanting to know if we could go to Flex Mussels this weekend. Seems she was watching Unique Eats on the Food Network, and it caught her eye. Well, I like mussels when done well, and perusing the menu, they have SO many variations that... More

Starve yourself before you go as the portions are huge and so delicious you will not want to leave even a fume in the bowl. Best mussels we have had since Paris - many options to choose and each one we have tried has been better than the last.

This place may have a cheesy name but the food is outstanding. If you love mussels then this is the place for you. An entire side of their menu is dedicated to mussels. Our party had 3 seafood lovers and 1 vegetarian. The seafood lovers devoured the mussels, the fish and chips and the burnt fingers which are fried calamari,... More

My husband and I had dinner here 2 weeks ago. We actually saw a segment on one of the food channels and decided we had to go on this trip. We made reservations about 2 weeks in advance with no issues on the time we wanted. We loved the vibe of the place the minute we walked in the door.... More

Served in your own personal pot..you have a choice of several delicious sauces your mussels come drenched in almost like a soup from Thai to lobster bisque to my favorite, curry. Served with a bruschetta type toast to soak up the sauces..it's fun to taste your friends sauces,... More
