Both times we visited The Mussel Pot, we loved the food. Every dish is uniquely different. The service was fairly attentive, and they were willing to spend time introducing each dish to us and answer our questions concerning the different prep styles. Overall it's a good experience, and I'd love to return again.

First, booked a table through OpenTable on a Thursday Night with a couple of friends, but for some reason, they cancelled my OpenTable Reservation. Parking in the area is not the easiest, expect 20-30 mins of parking space search. The design is of the place is nice, the seating space is a little tight, but that's how it is for most small/medium size restaurant in the city. The hostess and staff are friendly. The beverage selection is just okay; I was expecting a bigger beer and wine selection. The cocktails were decent. For Appetizers, we ordered the crab cake and the lobster mac n' cheese. Crab caje was just okay, while the Lobster Mac'N Cheese is highly recommended. (Although they use to give a lot more lobster before, but overall, it still taste great. ) Ordered 4 pots of mussels: Thai (very good), the curry is very mild, very tasty Valenciana (Good): Lots of ingredients, very flavorful Veracruzana (Good): Tasty but a bit on the salty side. Fra Diavolo (Decent) Overall, the food was good, but I would only come back if i am around the neighborhood and really want mussels. Note: We waited over an hour for 4 pots of mussels. We asked the staff why do we have such a long wait for our mussels, they all said, "I'll check that for you." but never came back with an answer.

One of those places that I can't figure out how to rate. The food turned out to be pretty great, but the server a little odd and inattentive, and more importantly they didn't honor the Groupon deal they put out. The deal my boyfriend bought specified that it included two mussel entrees and two side dishes or two glasses of wine or beer. When we were there, they said it was only good for half off the price of the beer. Considering their inflated beer prices to begin with, that was really ridiculous. I got the Thai mussels, and they were very good. This place is a bit pricy if you're going there without a Groupon deal, so if I wanted to spend the money for good mussels, I'd probably just mosey on over to Flex Mussels. I think if they had actually honored their Groupon deal instead of grubbing over a small amount (~$8), they would have won some repeat customers instead of turning people off. Too bad.

There is no comparison to Flex mussels. The food was disgusting, the service was not too great either. The calamari was over cooked mussel were not was just bad. What made this experience 10 time worst is the fact that I'm an regular parishioner Of Flex mussel..which is incredible I might add and I expected better or even comparable Food. Also what added insult to injury is that the only reason I went to this spot is because I bought a voucher from Living social for 50% off, and my voucher was not honored because I did not notice the fine print that stated the voucher can only be redeemed at lunch..and I was there for dinner. What kills me about the Mussel Pot is that when I called they were bragging about there subpar food..JUST A COMPLETE WASTE OF TIME…PLEASE SAVE YOU MONEY OR GO SOME WHERE ELSE.

I was greeted by a welcoming and fun host! Too bad it went downhill from there. It took 71 minutes from sit down to our food being served! We had to sit with two rounds of bread before the food finally came out. Of course we ordered mussels and it was served in a pot however filled barely to cover the bottom and too many mussels for a serving that size where still closed. The waitress was inexperienced and we had to argue about a voucher that was offered online through one of those coupon sites. Go elsewhere for dinner.
