If you love shellfish, this place is a must try. We started with 12 oysters (have the Zooey... perfection) and then two orders of mussels (Fra divolo & Bisque- both were sublime). Service was prompt and our waiter was very knowledgeable about the menu. Highly recommended.

we eached ordered a different pot of mussels, and passed them around the table in shifts. The Mexican and the fra diavlo ones are my favorite. Appetizers are a little overpriced, and not neccessary. Everyone raves about the doughnuts, but i didnt find them to be anything special.

Some of the worst service and food...what food was finally served as ordered, that is...in one of the noisiest joints in town. The greeter was pretentious, the server was silly and inattentive, the busboy was sloppy. Be forewarned, a zero all around.

Went with a friend. We had oysters and a smoked salmon platter for an app - both good. Mussels were on par with other French restaurants I've been to that specialized in moulles - except Flex offers every type of sauce imaginable. The stand out item, however, was the dessert. Neither of us are into sweets but we ordered the donuts on a whim. The donuts were made fresh to order with quality ingredients and came out hot! My friend and I agreed they were by far the best donuts we've ever had as well as one of the best desserts we've had.

Were kept waiting in a crowded bar for 35 minutes, despite reservations and a quiet dining room, while friends-of- management, without reservations, were seated. Waited 20 minutes for menus to be delivered and beverage order to be taken. After another long wait, then the wrong drinks were delivered -- twice! Waited another 20 minutes to order dinner. Now a wrong salad delivered and never replaced. Then a wrong entree, no replacement. Never received any bread. At this point, having been in the restaurant for two hours without dinner, the owner came over to laugh and say, "Oh mistakes do happen." We asked for the bill for what had been served as ordered. When it arrived, there were no adjustments for the missing food and several drinks ordered at another table were included. We left without paying the bill and dined elsewhere.

I have been to numerous notable fine dining establishments in manhattan that specialize in service. They've all been bested by Flex Mussels. Our waiter was knowledgeable and very prompt, the recommendations he provided were perfect. The mussels were excellent and the beer list is full of great choices at good prices. I had a great time with my girlfriend, everything was perfect from the appetizer of tender and meat full crab cakes to the desert of fresh donuts, the mussels in between equally notable. Even a disaster couldn't hold this place back from perfection, this being their first summer had a little difficulty with their wood floor. This restaurant will go on my rotation and I'm sure ill be back for more.
