Went during off hours when they only had the snack menu, short but good (oysters, one type of mussels, finger food). Just had oysters which were EXCELLENT! Highly recommended!

We went with our son and daughter in law, huge fans of the place. A restaurant specializing in mussels? Really? We like mussels, and do order them for a first course sometimes, but a main course? We are now believers. We started with 24 oysters...More

Amazing mussels. Between the four of us, we tried all of the mussel options except the curry. All were fantastic. Really interesting brunch menu. This was a surprise find as we were leaving the MOMA. Love the $25 all you can drink option!

It's nice to see a restaurant that specializes in a certain food does it right! The mussels were fresh and packed with taste (I tried three types) and they all please my palate. Order the truffle fries and a beer and your set.

Flex Mussels is our go-to spot when visiting New York City. Mussels are delicious as is the crab guacamole and fish tacos. Great Happy Hour...their Spicy Margarita is to-die-for!

We had a wonderful dinner in this cozy restaurant. Excellent service in a very warm environment. Crab Guacamole is amazing and the choice of Mussel dishes is extensive. Will definitely go back!
