Service and food were excellent! Noise level was high and tables were too small. Everything our waiter recommended we tried and it was super. Too stuffed to try dessert.

Great food, but the greeting is inept and based upon rules they have to ask the manager about. “ Can we be seated so we can order drinks? Are you all here—if not I have to ask my manager” the dining room was not full the entire two hours we were there.

Went for my husband's birthday. Made a reservation few days prior to that knowing that it will busy. My husband arrived in time and I was running late since coming from upstate. Gave an early notification that will be 15-20 min late. The host didn't make an effort to accommodate us. Just said that if I don't show up in 15 min my reservation will be cancelled. My husband decided to get a drink at the bar and was chased away by the bartender who said there is a wait list, which the host never made him aware of. When I arrived we were offered the smallest table at the restaurant. We were then sitted outside, when after placing the order we found out that the table was reserved and we have to move again. It was sad that the host didn't read the note that we were celebrating a special event. Despite that the food was great and both servers were fabulous.

What a fun spot! Mussels were perfectly prepared, and I could have dunked bread into that yummy sauce for hours. Really friendly servers, too. And I'm obsessed with those witty paintings of the sea and its inhabitants...

I have been to Flex Mussels around 5x over the past few months and each time I have noticed the same few things.

I have never been to the restaurant without a reservation, which is good because I have a feeling you'd never get a seat otherwise.

Despite having a reservation, I have consistently had to wait to be seated (last time I waited 20 minutes after my scheduled reservation). What's the point of making a reservation if they are going to make you wait? We thought about leaving, and honestly, we should have. Very rude to make a reservation wait 20+ minutes to be seated.

Secondly, the hostess is RUDE! When asked if we could sit at another table (same size, just farther away from the center), she said no because they were "very full"... it was 5:30 pm and there were maybe 2 other dining parties in the dining room... she also said that "they had just opened" so we'd have to wait for 'service'... why have 5:30 reservations if you cannot accommodate them? Do you "open" at 5:30 or at 6?!

The food is OK, although seems to take FOREVER to come out. I have been cooking mussels for years and I KNOW you are supposed to throw away any mussels that are still solidly shut after cooking-- I have found several completely shut ones in my bowl, which makes me wonder if the kitchen really knows what they're doing...

I hope this place gets their sloppy service sorted out. You cannot be this dysfunctional and slow in NYC.

After a week-long mussle-craving during our NYC visit, we booked a table here on a Thursday night. It was packed inside and the tables were full with yummy looking food. We sat in the back where the AC was a bit to cold to our comfort, but other than that the place is super cosy and we could peak into the kitchen which is always a treat. The service was prompt, genuine and very attentive. The recommended truffle fries came with perfect mayonnaise, and the bread was fresh and crisp and refilled before we could ask. The absolute stars of the night were, of course, the mussles! We had an Italian one with lots of fresh tomato, garlic, basil and fresh chillies and the Thai one, so rich in flavour but still allowing the mussles to steal the show. At this moment in the season they are small but o-so-tasty, and at FM they knew exactly how to prep them perfectly.

Went on the early side Saturday, after a trip to the Met. As usual, we had a lovely dining experience. Good air conditioning, excellent service, and yummy mussels. I had the Bangkok style. Their truffle fries are a treat, and don’t miss the donuts!

I went there for seafood and yet the seafood was not good. The shrimp tasted frozen and fishy, the mussels were just okay. We ordered them with lobster and they gave us 2 pieces that were so small we laughed and thought it was a mistake. We also ordered a kale salad that was less than mediocre. The only thing that was good was the gelato dessert, which they outsource from a gelataria in soho! And for such an underwhelming meal, it was quite expensive! I would literally never go back again.

Lovely and trendy date night location. Although quite loud, the environment, service, and food (we had the Thai mussels and the San Daniele mussels for dinner and the crab guacamole as an appetizer. Save room for the donuts!) made for an excellent evening.

Mussel lovers, rejoice! Simply amazing: 22 varieties plus the daily “special” appropriately called #23. Add in those drop dead truffle fries and enjoy taste a touch of heaven. Generous portions,folks, but leave room for the home-made donuts, especially the salted caramel, lemon and chocolate stuffed. Reservations a must.

This was my third time here. Food was solid, as always. Oysters and mussels were fresh. The hostess was extremely pushy about having our entire party there (3 people) to seat us at the table. The music in the bar area was extremely loud. Loud in the way where you can't hear the person next to you, let alone yourself think, and all you can do is order another drink. Maybe this is intentional.

The waiter was kind enough to persuade the hostess to seat us. We noticed the restaurant was empty in the back, even when we did finish our meal.
