Went there for NYE 2009 we were a big group and the owner was not nice nor accomodating. She has a serious attitude problem and we spent over $2000.00 that night. The menu is very limited and difficult to order from and there were no substitutions. The only pleasant thing was the waitstaff who were very nice. BUT if the owner doesn't set the tone (I live a block away) this restaurant won't make it. We waited for 45min for our table and were not even told a sorry or given a drink on them. I miss Zocolo I give this restaurant 6 months and then a nail place will be there (Sorry but true)

I have to say I loved the mussles....so many delicious choices....hard to go wrong. I just wish the fries were better...If I could get the mussels from FLEX and the fries from B.Cafe....and the beer from either.....it would be a perfect meal! Will definitely be back.!!!!!!

The mussels were excellent. We had the classic mussels and then split the fried calamari appetizer and the goat cheese appetizer. With three drinks, the bill came to approximately $70 without tip. The waitstaff could use a little work. The drink orders took FOREVER.. But the atmosphere was pleasant (although a little loud). We decided we'll come back in a few months and give it another try. But they are off to a good start.

I have to say that I have never enjoyed mussels as much as I did at Flex Mussels. I had the Thai, and they were even better than they smelled and trust me, if you smelled them you'd know what I meant. In fact, the entire restaurant smells wonderful. The restaurant looks great (although a bit loud), the service was friendly and attentive, and the oyster selection was the best I've tasted in NY. Plus, I had a great view of Diane Sawyer and Mike Nichols who were dining there as well.

I really don't like reviewing a restaurant when it's so new as there are always kinks to be worked out , but I just feel the need to prevent people from expecting so much more than is actually delivered. The mussels were tasty but not really plump and were expensive. The whole fish was excellent, but for $28, you can do better elsewhere. It was a scene and I think people like that....makes them think they're not crazy for spending a lot for a little....but honestly folks, I know my food....it's just ok...place is nice, owners very nice, service very good, food just adequate...Sorry Flex.

i have been to flex mussels 3 times since it has opened. i cannot get enough. i am generally not a seafood lover, but they know what they are doing. the seafood is fresh and delicious. the 'not seafood' dishes are scrumptious. Beer lovers: they have an amazing and extensive beer list. its a wonderful addition to the neighborhood. the staff is so pleasant, helpful, and friendly. it is just a wonderful establishment.

we went on a family vacation to prince edward island last summer and ate at the original flex mussels. That was a great meal, but the one in ny was better! The thai mussels are really delicious, and i could make a meal out of the great bread and mussel broth. Burnt fingers (frito misto) was well cooked and really good. Friendly staff and very reasonable prices but the back room is loud. Ill definitely be back to try more food.
