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 but Colleen was an amazing server and absolutely made our night. Fun, light hearted and handled a really busy section like a total pro.

Dinner got to a slow start…. I’ll cut them some slack, it was busy.
Cocktails were a perfect start, I recommend the Lillet cocktail. Oysters were on point and the fish, cooked to perfection. Highly recommend the Black Cod. Leave room for dessert and be sure to get a whoopie pie! You can thank me later…
One bad thing, all the noise on Santa Monica Blvd.

Well, this was our first time here, but it certainly won't be the last. They very pointedly set up a bunch of outside seating, some under a tent, some under a roof with fresh air flowing. Tables appropriately spaced. Employees masked, friendly, helpful, patient, and the food (and drink) was excellent.
We will return.

Chowder wasn’t creamy enough, lobster rolls were too soused in butter to taste lobster, service was slow but whatever, steamer clams were salty and anemic. Oysters were solid, including the vinaigrette. Honestly don’t understand the rave reviews here, $180 dollars for two deserves more.

The food was so good it overcame a couple of missteps in the service, the jenkiness of the decor and the aggressiveness of the wines by the glass pricing. Definitely a spot worth going out of your way to experience.

The oyster selection is large and quite good. I would highly recommend the mussels in white wine sauce, fish of the day, and wilted spinach with bacon (of course). The ultimate side was the mac n cheese. My only complaint is that it didn't come in a bigger dish! :)

Dinner was delicious. Our server seemed to have forgotten us, never checked if we need additional drinks (we did!) or dessert. Very nice busboy did bring us additional drinks after we waited for over 15 minutes to have our plates cleared.

We went to Connie and Ted’s for a late lunch on a Saturday afternoon. The outdoor dining area is large and comfortable with lots of different seating options. The cocktails were delicious- not too sweet and just the right complexity of flavors. The food was tasty, albeit the 1/2 lobster was on the small side. All in all, a very pleasant meal.

This place has really gone down hill. Ambiance used to be lively and upbeat but has been completely stripped away. The food quality also tastes more like a chain restaurant now, the mussels were old and tawny, the oysters were warm and had a fishy smell to them.

The waiter was arrogant and dismissive.
I have been going there since it opened.
Ever since you opened the parking lot for dining the servers and service are terrible!
I would consider not returning!

Good service, nice outside with Covid, pricey for food quality. Ex. The salad, I guess it was cobb-ish, had wilted cut Romaine with decent bacon and cheese, but the price was excessive. thanks
