Flex Mussels - 13th Street
Best mussels in the city!Best mussels in the city! I recommend this place to all my friends. Also, I must add that the Kale salad And the donuts are perfection as well.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMFlex Has The Very Best MusselsFlex Mussels has the best mussels of anywhere I have ever eaten. I'm a bit of a picky eater and have never even disappointed.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious As UsualI have been here a few times and it's always amazing! The Thai mussels are one of my favorites. We also had the Burnt Fingers appetizer which is yummy. The donuts were incredible as always. Will be back for sure!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMamazing, inventive flavors!We've tried all 23 mussel dishes and you really can't go wrong with the Parma, Thai, Bisque, or French Onion. Make sure the server tells you the daily special for extra fresh and special variations! Don't forget to save room for their delicious donuts - they melt in your mouth.
For non-mussel lovers, there's good options too. All the salads are super fresh and the lobster roll is one of my favorites in the city (definitely under-rated and off the radar -- it's small for the price, but hey, they all are).5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMMussels onlyMussels were fantastic! Boston roll, so-so - not much lobster, way over priced. Go for the mussels and you won'r be disappointed.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMFlex does it againThe mussels were delicious as usual. I'm working my way through the menu, and this visit didn't disappoint for me; the San Daniele was great. My friend tried the Mediterranean and it was good, but not quite as amazing - salty and bland in comparison. The staff was attentive, overly so when it came to filling water glasses, but at least we didn't have to ask. I will definitely be going back.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is our second time here.This is our second time here. The mussels are always delicious and so are the donuts. :)5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMalways a good feeling when leavingeveryone I bring there always enjoys it... the front entrance staff are not always to most welcoming though...they always seem a bit distracted or disengaged...5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMPleasant night outDelicious mussels and other seafood in a comfortable and relaxed setting. Should have left more room for dessert4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMFlex was very good. The restaurantFlex was very good. The restaurant was bigger than I thought it would be, but filled up quickly and I was very glad I made reservations. The feel was perfect for a date night with my girlfriend, low light, candle on table, a bit of music playing. The food was excellent. We had the fried oysters appetizer and it was delicious, worth every dollar. The mussels were so good, best I believe I've ever had and they gave me way more than I thought they would. I was stuffed by the end of the meal. I can't wait to go back.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways amazing. Great food,Always amazing. Great food, superb service. Were super accommodating and friendly despite us showing up late and asking to change tables in order to accommodate an additional person.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious Food!!!

Definitely get the donuts...they are AMAZING!4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMWe love this place. The oystersWe love this place. The oysters and mussels are fresh and delicious and they are very accommodating with dietary restrictions such as gluten and dairy intolerances. We will return again and again and recommend it to friends.
The tables are a little too close to each other for any really private time. We enjoyed our neighbors on our last visit, thank goodness.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful foodAwesome, awesome, awesome! I loved the Parma and the San Danielle!4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMVery acomidating. I was runningVery acomidating. I was running late and were able to move reservation to later time and sit party before i arrived. As well was not rushed put once check was settled.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMIn a word...WOW.What a fabulous experience. Oysters were fresh, mussels were divine. I had the Thai, my husband had the Parma. Both were outstanding. One very minor complaint, we were still enjoying our oysters when our entrees came out. Not a huge deal and it would not prevent me from going back. Just something I thought should be mentioned.4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMNeighborhood KeeperA very nice menu featuring PEI mussels in all sorts of simple and complex preparations and a nice range of fish and non-fish dishes. The decor of the rather compact dining room is striking with a large photo mural of PEI. Service prompt, polite and attentive. The bill was a bit much for what the meal was, but not so bad for an evening's enjoyment.4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing Food Service and Ambiance!!Loved loved loved Flex Mussels!! When entering we were greeted right away with pleasant smiles

Cannot wait to go back3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMWe did not have mussels butWe did not have mussels but the salmon and chicken was great. We had the crab cake appetizers and although, having lived in MD, I know its not MD lump crab cake, it tasted very good.
The doughnuts were delightful and we tried several different kinds.
Our waiter was fun and attentive.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Mussels!This is a hip, fun restaurant serving the best mussels. Great variety of preparations all delicious. Try the amazing truffle fries. It's very popular so be sure to make a reservation.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways enjoy dining here -Always enjoy dining here - good food, good service.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was delicious as always.Food was delicious as always. Waiter was very helpful in suggesting which mussels to chose. Great atmosphere.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMSo, if I'm honest, I was mildlySo, if I'm honest, I was mildly surprised at the prices, though perhaps I have a different interpretation of $$ than some, but they weren't outrageous compared to other places. I had a Boston Roll (normally $26) and upgraded the side of fries to truffle fries (this brought the entree to $31). The portions aren't huge - in fact, I was almost able to finish mine (to put it in context, I weigh about 100 lbs and there is almost always food left on my plate when I go out). That being said, I felt it was worth the price - the food was amazing! The service was very good too. The restaurant was a little darker than I would have liked, but at least I could still see my food and my friend, and that was enough!3/19/2013 12:00:00 AMif you love mussels you willif you love mussels you will love this place - it's amazing.3/3/2013 12:00:00 AMBeen a bunch of times, alwaysBeen a bunch of times, always as good as the last!!! Love, love Flex! Great service, always good food! The bruschetta mussels are amazing, and the donuts are a MUST.2/20/2013 12:00:00 AMAnything that puts lobster,Anything that puts lobster, cream and mussels in a pot was pretty much always going to be my very favorite thing ever. Dip the truffle fries in the broth until they take it away from you. Definitely have all the donuts for dessert. God, those donuts.2/14/2013 12:00:00 AMGood atmosphere with great musselsGreat restaurant if you're looking for a mellow restaurant with a good atmosphere (whether a date or with friends/family) and great seafood - particularly mussels as the name would suggest. I recommend the Spicy Greens app, Parma mussels and the donuts for dessert.1/1/0001 4:00:00 PM
