“Wonderful place if you love mussels.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 27, 2012

I've been to both restaurants in NYC, nice ambiance, reasonable price, mussels 20 different ways. I had Provence style, my husband had Thai, both wonderful, and
truffle fries on the side, delicious! Service was attentive, not rushed, despite being very busy, should have reservations. Will definitely go back.

“Either Location is Great!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2012

I think Flex Mussels is my favorite restaurant in the city, and because of me, for a lot of other people too!
I've eaten there (both locations) I think more than any other nice restaurant since it's opened. The service, quality of food and price point are all right on - I've yet to have a bad experience dining here. (and as a plus, they offer complementary still OR sparkling water - as a Seltzer junkie, it's a big plus for me).
The Mussel pots are big for 1 person, I usually split some oysters, a soup, truffle fries and 1 pot if I'm going with a friend, which leaves just enough room to not feel too full to order the amazing donuts for dessert.

“For Mussel lovers only!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2012

My family loves mussels so this was a great place for us. Pleasant staff and nice atmosphere. They don't rush you through dinner and you get plenty to eat

“Great experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 13, 2012

Had seen the show on TV and decided to try it out during a recent stay in NYC. Service was great, tons of different mussel sauces. HIGHLY recommend.
Dessert menu a little lacking, but the fried whoopie pie was worth a try.
Would definitely return

“Flex Mussels”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

You would have to like mussels or seafood. They had some very imaginative sauces for the mussels. We had veggies on the side ( for all to share) and we were stuffed from the mussels. we were impressed. haven't had fresh mussels like that in the San Francisco Bay area.
