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.

Limited menu, and a little pricey, but the food does taste good.

The service was beyond poor. The waiter was chatting up a storm with others while he neglecting to take our dinner order.
By the time I flagged him down they were out of my menu choice.
He never asked if we wanted another glass of wine or another beverage. He also had a bit of an attitude.

I’m a long time customer and this was a experience.

Visited for my birthday with my family. We have been here several times in the past. This time our service felt rushed, and other than the oysters and clam chowder, the food was just okay.

Great fresh seafood. Real steamers (fabulous). Excellent oysters (but, in chefs choice) not individually identified. Fair corkage ($30).
Service was hit and miss (not really aware of timing)

A real Rhode Island fish house in LA no less!
I miss Point Judith and Matunick where I grew up and this is the West Coeat equivalents to an old New England seafood establishment.. Don’t miss it!

Nick was our very good server. They seated us in a fabulous location (we wanted a quiet table). The dishes ranged from good to excellent. Only issue is not their fault: parking can be an issue as they took over their parking lot for outdoor (covered) table service and there is no valet. Allow time to find parking in the area.

Connie and Ted's is always a winner - fabulous lobster roll and fries, salads, fish and chips, even their burger is great - and their craft beers! Brought new people there last night, and they loved it too!

Enjoyed the food and the atmosphere.

My biggest issue is our waitress disappeared and I had to go to the manager to get service. I saw other waitresses and waiters actively checking on their tables, seems it was just ours. Will not stop me from going back.

Always a treat to eat here at one of our favorite restaurants, which we patronize at least twice a month. I especially love the hot lobster roll, the dinner rolls and the New York pickles. In chilly months, try the three-chowder sampler. (Yes, three!)

We had a great dinner at Connie and Ted’s. The seafood was incredible and the staff very accommodating. The manager Matt went above and beyond to ensure we had a great meal with some new menu item suggestions paired with wines. Lovely evening!

It was very average. Event tho we had reservations we waited about 10 minutes to be seated after the reservation time. Once seated we waited an additional 10/15 minutes to even be greeted.

The server was lovely, but clearly over worked.

Once food and drink arrived, the drinks were excellent, but the food was very “meh”. We, 4 of us, all had different items and all of us reported the meals we had to be just okay.

All and all just a very average experience. Likely won’t be back.

I can never resist ordering their incredible lobster roll with drawn butter, which comes with the best-EVER fries! Can’t wait to go back!

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.
