I rarely write about restaurants in my home city, but my husband and I love Flex Mussels! I've only been to the one on W13th St. Lots of innovative mussels preparations--Thai, Parmesan, etc. In fact, mussels are almost the only thing on the menu. They're flown in from PEI. Also love the illuminated photo of PEI which takes up an entire wall. The place is packed--make a reservation.

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.

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.

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

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
