    Always a pleasure to eat PEI mussels, deliciously prepared and cheerfully served. Interesting wine choices, pristine oysters, and imaginative cocktails. Great meal.

    Really delicious food and cocktails! Our servers were attentive and knowledgeable. The downstairs looked a little more lively but all around great meal.

    I enjoyed my dinner at FLEX, Staff are very professional and informative. Spinach dip is tasty but a little watery. Thai Mussel pot is delicious as well as the Parma. Oh and get all the donuts for dessert!

    I have been to Flex Mussels many times; however, disappointed in the service. I believe our waitress came to the table 2x (1x to take our order and the next to grab the check). Only after the check was delivered, the waitress walked by 3 times, waiting for a tip on $300 without really doing much. She also seemed very upset to be working. I love Flex and will be back, but I hope the staff remembers service, ambiance and care of your customers are just as important as the food.

    Food and cocktails are always amazing! Service was a bit slow and server was often hard to track down. It’s always so loud there.

    The service was among the best I have ever had, we were asked if we needed something before we even knew we did. The food was unique and really good. We went for Easter Sunday lunch and it really made it a special day for my family and me.

    We have been to the old location several times. We enjoyed our brunch, but the muscles seemed a little tiny and the donuts seemed smaller than before. Also, my wife missed the hazelnut donuts.

    Was the worst salads we ever ordered. My daughter had kale salad with shrimp and it was blah, some pignoli nuts and 4 shrimp, no creativity there. I ordered the Cobb with lobster, which was virtually 1/2 tail cut up for $38. When I complained the manager said “its weighed and lobster is expensive, but she brought out a side of lobster that she said was the amount they put into their lobster roll which was double the portion that was in my salad which only costs $35. So I’m not really following the logic on that one? Don’t like getting ripped off and talked to condescendingly. Definitely will not be returning.
