Seafood
At Connie and Ted’s you’ll find simply prepared fish and shellfish, inspired by the classic clam shacks, oyster bars, and fish houses, that dot the New England Seaboard and the Western Coast.

Enjoy one (or two) California craft beers on tap, while sampling from our variety of oysters, clams and shellfish, shucked to order, at our Raw Bar. Wind down the day with a classic cocktail at the bar, or enjoy a warm lobster roll outside on the covered, open-air patio overlooking Santa Monica Boulevard.

Food was great. Service was very slow. I think server had too big of a section.

Was a wee disappointed in my clam roll. Was delivered barely warm so the clams didn't taste up to par and the joint was so busy, it wasn't worth it to me to get the attention of the server to send back. The raw oysters were great though!

We LOVE Connie and Ted's - and especially their yummy lobster roll, excellent fries, and New England clam chowder. Also, their front-of-house and wait staff is outstanding. Always a relaxing, pleasurable experience.

Crab cakes were cold and oily, as though they had been heated up from the day before. Rhode Island clam chowder was excellent. French fries crispy and luscious. The waiter was a delight.

I do not know of another restaurant that has a higher quality of fish. Oyster, clams, uni all perfect and delicious. Also where else can you get east coast clams either raw or fried bellies or strips.
Everytime we come to LA is our first stop.

Wife and I went on a Wednesday. Were seated right away with reservation. Started with chowder sampler, half a dozen oysters and some drinks. All were excellent. Then we had a crab cake. You only get one and it’s a little pricey. Would pass on that next time. We were debating between the clams and mussels or the bouillabaisse. Server highly recommended the bouillabaisse (which they only serve on Wednesday currently) and it couldn’t have been a better idea. It was FANTASTIC! They needs to make this a regular option. Absolutely delicious! While it’s pricey, the food is fantastic. Makes for a great date night!

Quality and consistency at C+T's is always excellent. But going from $29. to $36. for their signature lobster roll is not a fair price jump. There is no escalation in lobster prices to warrant it. If your going to raise prices do it fairly. As for the quality of the food it is one of the best seafood restaurants in LA bar none. People who can afford the $36. were turned off by the large price hike and had something else. It's the principal here. Go to $32. and make it market competitive.

Seafood and service were excellent! I gave 5 stars for ambiance- the parking lot is not ideal, but they are putting a lot into maintaining Covid guidelines- a very nice, tented area. We were fortunate to be on patio. Had chefs choice of oysters. We are east coast seafood people- it is very difficult to find good fried clams in LA- this is the place!
Shared fried clams & steamers. Perfect start to summer!Wonderful selection of chowders and fresh fish - prepared to one’s liking!

Well. We hate to give negative reviews… But this was average at best. Not even great seafood… And sort of expensive. We live in the Boston area so we are used to good seafood. The drinks were very fruity… But not a lot of alcohol.pear Martini tasted more like a juice drink. Crab cake was ok. I got the swordfish... it was ok. There were so many positive reviews... just mot what was expected. Kev

Food and drinks were wonderful as was our waitress.
The only negative was the parking situation. Because tables are set up in the parking lot it was aggravating for myself and other members of our party to have to try and find street parking on a busy evening in that area.

We enjoy Connie & Ted’s regularly. It’s a reasonably priced seafood restaurant. We particularly enjoy the gem salad, fish & chips, steamers and daily specials. On our last visit, we were seated promptly. Service was reasonably good though a bit slower than usual, perhaps bc the tables are spaced quite far apart and and the servers ha e to cover a lot more ground.

We are happy Connie and Ted's is open again as it is a wonderfully casual place with New England clam shack food. We think the lobster rolls rival the ones we have had in Cape Cod, they may be better and the fries are great.
I could go on and on about the food including appetizers and their special drinks.
It is a winner. It would be a winner in cape cod.
