We celebrated family members birthday here and it was a great choice. There were four of us for dinner and we each ordered a different mussle entrée. Nobody was disappointed. We also had fresh oysters and truffle parmesan fries which were incredibly good. $42/dozen for...More

Great atmosphere but average food. Tempura battered haddock was very disappointing. The batter was more akin to a bread wrap! Lobster salad special was tasty but lacking lobster.

Back in 2009, I had cut a review of this restaurant out of the New Yorker magazine. But we never had gone until this April. My son and I both love mussels and we were not disappointed. I had the Thai mussels which were great,...More

The mussels come from Canada's east coast and are superb and although they are the principal ingredient on the menu there is a fairly wide alternative set of choices. But really, if you don't like mussels there is not much point in going to this...More

With so many mussel choices, skip the classic mussels in the white wine sauce. We enjoyed the parma mussels with parmigiano cream and the thai mussels with curry coconut broth. Be sure to ask for the crusty bread. It's perfect for dipping in the sauces!...More

I rarely review restaurants, but Flex Mussels is such a fantastic gem, I feel like I must share! The menu is great for mussels and non-mussels lovers. It was hard to choose between the 15 or so options for mussels. I ultimately went with the...More

West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the
West Village is one of the city’s most coveted
addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and
cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture,
this neighborhood has a unique old-world feel. You
won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan.
Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to
get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you
