    A Good experience I would go back

    I had dinner w/ a friend & it was great. The thai mussels were very good & the service was good. The atmosphere was comfy. Kevin the waiter was outstanding-he had a command of the menu & the theme of the restaurant. The mgr was not the most welcoming and the host gave us a time period in which to complete our meal-not cool! that I felt the need to leave a comment about that. I would go back because the meal, dessert (deep fried whoopie cake) was great & there are items on the menu beyond mussels it is a great addition to the upper east side. Kevin keep up the good work.

    Couldn't be better

    I would like to disagree with the reviewer below who said this place could be better and say there is no way it could be better. This place was unreal. We got the Thai, San Daniele, and Spaniard Mussels. Easily the best mussels I've ever had, and the tastes were so satisfying and complex that we were eating the broth like soup when we ran out of mussels and bread to slop it up with. We didn't think it could get any better until we ordered desserts. Donuts like you've never seen them before (injected with awesome fillings, and freshly fried), bread pudding, and key lime pie. The service was impeccable and the atmosphere was terrific. Can't wait to go back and try the other 20 kinds of mussels.

    Mussels your way

    You have a wide variety of how you want your mussels prepared. We were 4 people and 2 got the original, 1 got the Mexican and 1 got the special of the day. Everyone was pleased. We had a nice bottle of Pinot Gres with the meal and got the donuts and Woopie pie for dessert. Quite delicious. Our waiter and hostess couldn't have been nicer. All in all a very favorable experience and will return.

    More Mussels!

    I absolutely love this place. Only been once, but the restaurant is clean, well decorated and the food is amazing. It is hard to find a place with so many options when it comes to mussels. I just happened to find this restaurant online and now my bf and I are always wanting to go back. Going tonight, can't wait! Definitely worth a visit, if you like mussels.

    I came here for a birthday dinner and the Parma mussels were absolutely amazingly flavorful. The waiter even brought my dessert with a candle, and passionfruit creme fraiche layered with strawberries? Who could say no?! Will absolutely return.

    Great mussels

    While it's hard to take this restaurant seriously with this name the mussels happen to be fantastic. As an admitted sceptic to a non-French restaurant specializing in mussels, I was pleseantly suprised. We did not have a reseveration (Friday night, shame on us) and chose instead to sit at the counter across from the bar. While the seating was immediate, the table top was small, with side by side seating which is always strange when not at bar. The mirrored wall made the experience mildly awkward, but I guess starring at a reflection of myself and my wife is better than starring at a brick wall. We started with a very fresh salmon tartare which served with cross cut potato chips. We then had the Provencal and the Maine mussels. I chose the Provencal just to see if they can do a simple mussel, which they did to perfection. The Maine however distinguished their fare from average. Served in a broth flavored and with chunks of lobster and bacon (closer to small chunks of thick cut ham then the crunchy breakfast variet ) the broth was both smokey and absolutely delicious. Of course we had french fries which were crunch and very good as well. The restaurant has a generous beer menu with interesting global beers. We skipped desert, but I was delighted to receive swedish fish with the check.

    Don't get the donuts

    I have been to this restaurant a number of times. The mussels are good, but the prices are a little high. I do not recommend the homemade donuts (sp?). They are nothing special, just go to dunkin. They also charge for Old Bay seasoning on their fries. Buyer beware.
