One of our favorite places - casual, fun and delicious food! Must have oysters (if you enjoy) in addition to the mussels!!

This place is great. You don't 'need' fries ... but does anyone? Don't forget to save room for donuts!

Mussels are great. Fries are ok. Drinks are expensive. Front desk seating very confused and not friendly. Table very close together.

The classic mussels had no taste - bland, not flavorful. My salad came drowned in dressing, but they readily exchanged it with dressing on the side. By far the worst part was the bus boy! He needs a lesson in etiquette. Sweet young man, but he piled all the dirty flatware on my friend’s plate so he could stack all the dishes. I was in disbelief. Waitress was lovely and efficient.

Delicious food. Out of town clients really enjoyed it. Lively atmosphere which got noisier as the later dinner hours arrived. Would recommend as a great option on the UES.

Always one of my fave spots. Food so good it’s hard to choose but if you like mussels and great fries (truffle) and great clams and oysters - this is the SPOT!

Overpriced for the amount of mussels you get in a pot

Great food and service. Generous pours of cocktails. Tables are crowded. It is a relatively small space but well worth it.

Flex Mussels is my favorite restaurant! I come here a few times a year, it is a great energy no matter what time. We ate at 9pm and it was still loud and busy!

The lobster roll was terrible, poor quality lobster and way too much mayo. It was sopping wet and made the bread very soggy when lobster rolls are supposed to be buttery and flakey. The fish and chips entree were not good and overly fried with little fish but lots of breading. Bread did not come till entrees were on the table and we asked for a basket before we ordered appys.

Everything was spectacular as always. The noise level rose as the night went on. Better to come at 6 to avoid the noise.

Food was amazing , my wife had taken me there for Father’s Day 2 yrs ago. I loved it, the only issue I had was with the waiter. I asked for this Bourbon drink, instead I got tequila. Other than that my wife ,son and I had a amazing time.
