I'd heard great things about Flex for several years and never made it in. I had a friend in town and made a last minute reservation, knowing it would be good enough. Turns out it was one of the best meals either of us ever had. Cannot recommend this place enough. Truly outstanding.
Good wine list. Great service. We liked the location - felt more than a neighborhood restaurant than a tourist haven.
Traumatic at best but the food was phenomenal cute staff
Forks coulda been sharper tho
It’s a must for us whenever we’re in NY. Food is fabulous and great service.
Marvelous! The variety of mussel dishes is staggering and delicious - go with a group to taste more than one variation of mussel preparation. Appetizers are yummy - everything should be shared. Our wait staff couldn't have been more helpful. Loud, noisy and fun
Our 2nd time going and the food was just as delicious as the first time. We like to sit at the bar to take advantage of the $1 oysters which do not disappoint. Macy the hostess could not have been nicer keeping us updated on bar seating availability and ensuring we were set. Same with Sergio our bartender who took the time with adjustments to our food order and was very personable.
My wife and I really enjoyed the food here. Tried 6 different types of oysters and all were fresh and well cleaned. I had the Thai mussel dish which had Thai spices, lemongrass, and a little cilantro in the broth. It was exceptional. My wife had Lobster Bisque mussels which were good but I thought my dish had better flavors. Waitstaff and hostess were great. The donuts for desert were delicious and airy with different fillings. We loved the cinnamon and the strawberry. The bread they serve during the dinner was light and crusty. Perfect for soaking up the delicious broth! We will definitely be back again.
Great food, great service. NO COMPLAINTS!
My wait was very long for the bar area. They should have at least offered a drink for my wait.
Great food and excellent service. However, disappointed there was no wifi. Also, the complimentary bread was a little cold. But the meals were fantastic.
I honestly came here to try the donuts but I also love mussels. I ordered the Parm creamy mussels, It was pretty good just wish it came with a nice toasty piece of bread. Overall I was satisfied, the donuts were really good too!
i love this restaurant and come here often. i like that there's no debate with a big group of ordering tapas for a crowd and needing to figure out how much to get for the table. its pretty straight forward here as long as everyone likes mussels!
Always on our list when we visit NYC!
The food is great at FLEX, servers are friendly. The only weird thing to me is the VOLUME - why must that subsonic beat go on in the bar and dining room. It ruins the atmosphere of the back dining area entirely.
Please open a Flex in Washington DC so I can stop schlepping to NY for my fix.
Love the kaffir lime
Food was excellent. We’re seated 10 minutes late even though we showed up early, not a huge deal. Cocktails were delicious. Thai mussels and Dijon mussels were both excellent. Would go again and recommend to friends.
Flex was so awesome!! Fun menu and terrific alcohol selection. Mussels were tasty and good value—pricey for a big pot but they don’t cheat you. Amazing location too!
Love the kafir lime mussels
Outstanding fun place. . Did not experience some of the negative review items such as rushed or poor service. They were very busy and handled it well. Drinks were great, food was outstanding. Parma and thai mussels for dinner. Fried oysters also great. So many options for mussels was hard to choose!!! Doughnuts a bit overrated. Flavor interesting but way way underfilled with flavors so mostly a plain doughnut w tiny filling. Took our time and never felt rushed on a busy Saturday night. Best mussels we have had - and we are serious foodies...
If you are in a mood for mussels - that’s the place to go. The mussels were divine
I’ve been there e
This was my first time here and the restaurant was amazing and so was the food! I am definitely coming back and make this one of my go to restaurants!
Good. Service was a bit slow
Always a good time at Flex Mussels. Everything was delicious and service was fantastic!
Waitor was not intuitive. He was friendly enough to pour our beverage but doing so he made a mess and walked away. Once he came back to the table he had no desire to clean up the spill. I asked for something to clean the table with and did it myself. It would have also been bette did they had more “non mussel” items.
Great fresh muscles and service!!!!!
Was great great rapport qualité prix
Exemple tu good for price
Burnt fingers +
Great food. Terrible wait time. But that's expected at every place that has good food
The staff is amazing! The food is amazing! This place rocks!!!
Loved it except too noisy
Room was a bit chilly, service was a bit slow.
The service was not good...the waitress was clearly over worked. The food was fair at best.
I've been going to this place for years. There mussels are great. Try the Thai.
Great place to get a bite with a friend.
Good atmosphere. Good wines. Goid eats.
What a wonderful Saturday night at Flex Mussels.
The service was excellent from the start to the finish.
The menu was the most interesting of all, food was prepared to perfection.
The mussels and the different combinations were creative and unforgettable.
We will be coming back .
Outstanding food and service .
The service and the food were excellent! I am planning a return trip with my family .
The food was so fresh, well prepared and presented! Small but cozy. We originally wanted the uptown location but couldn’t get a reservation until 10:00 pm. So we traveled to this one. Worth the trip!
Fun atmosphere, friendly and responsive wait staff and delicious food.
We enjoyed the shrimp (very fresh) appetizer, Thai mussels, truffle fries and donuts. All the food was terrific.
Can’t wait to go back!
