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) of 24 California craft beers on tap, while sampling from our large 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.

Great jumbo and oysters.

busy happy hour at the bar
Amazing service by Kelsey
Food was underwhelming, oysters Rockfeller were missing flavor , crab cake was really small and didn’t taste right
Sea urchin was the winner. Love the presentation

Since all my friends live in Long Beach or OC, I wouldn't recommend they drive all the way to this eatery.
The clam chowder was excellent, and the mussels very good, as was our Old Fashions,
but the place looks like a Denny's, especially in the room adjacent to the restrooms.
My husband and I would come back if we had a play to attend in the area, but not a special trip just for the restaurant.ed

Food was very disappointing but then we didn't have any raw food like oysters, etc. which are probably better. Not going back...

My family really enjoyed our meal - we are seafood lovers and every bite was dynamite (leave room for the blondie for dessert. DIVINE.)

Really a great place. My only complaint is that they use pork in their chowder, or as we say in Rhode Island chowdah. Aside from that, how happy was I to eat real steamers outside of my home state?!!! I highly recommend this place. Drinks were great, service was friendly, and everything I ate was fantastic.

Food is always on point. Was made to wait 10+ minutes for a table though we had a reservation which was accompanied by general coldness from the greeters/hosts who didn't offer updates or anything else and were visibly chatting amongst themselves the whole time. Our server was great and we had a great meal but the hosts could have done a better job of starting things on the right foot.

$29 for fried clam bellies - clams were overdone and the dish was 25% clams and 75% french fries. Extremely overpriced for what we were served. Definitely would not order that again. Questionable as to whether or not we will return.

This is the second time we’ve dined at Connie & Ted’s - in LA on business. Both times were great. Food reliably good, atmosphere conversational & service appropriately friendly & attentive. Will go for a third the next time we’re out here from NYC!

We hadn't been here in over a year. The last time was good, but really noisy. This time, which was for a friend's birthday dinner, was just as good, but a little less noisy. Both my partner and the birthday boy had the boiled dinner, which they loved, and I had the clam strips (my favorite) which were to die for. Great service! We definitely won't wait another year before returning.

Return visit was as good as the first time. Yummy oysters, lobster rolls, hot buttered rolls, and chicken sandwich. They have this great fresh ginger juice plus spirits which is divine! We enjoyed Ethan and were happy to see our server from our first visit Janet. She was phenomenal! She remembered us and bought us dessert. So kind! This is our go to in LA for great fresh seafood and delicious sides and drinks at an affordable price.

Fun place, nice for casual meal and socially energetic vibe. Food was ok, Lobster was $65 for 1.5 lbs and barely any meat. Peeled chilled shrimp were very small for the price. Everything tasted good though. Service was very good and friendly

My third time there and first time I found the service dismissive. I felt we were on her schedule. We said bring the food as it’s ready but oysters coming third course is not ok.

I keep giving this restaurant a chance because I love the atmosphere, but the food is always excessively bland. It has never improved. A totally dull eating experience.

Have been here numerous times before, but it had been awhile. Food was better than ever, but it was noisier than I remembered. My husband, sitting across the table from me, had to shout.

Food was great. Wasn’t so much into the special side of squash but everything else was perfect, except the chowder but I’m picky. And those rolls! So good. Drinks were strong. Prices are high. And we had a reservation but they sat us at this high table that wasn’t ideal. Servers were friendly. I walked out of there happy and stuffed

Even though we were there at our reservation time, and they were at only about 30% capacity, we were told we'd have to wait for a table. It took them 20 minutes to get us to our table even though no one else had been seated during that time.
