Connie and Ted's
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.

It was nice.
Just ok.The pictures I saw of the food on instagram 98% was not on the menu.was disappointed
Exceptional food, drinks and despite the pandemic, ambience. The patio allowed for social distancing, limited noise, and was cool, shaded and protected. Wonderful place for a celebration with such a great variety of food and beverages! The "Blondie" dessert was incredible!
Great! It was a bit hot so we had to move the umbrellas around but service was fantastic and the food was great.
Very safe place on patio everyone wore masks. Tables more than 6 feet apart. Food very good
They take all necessary precautions to make sure the staff and customers are being kept safe.
The food and quality of service remains outstanding.
They make great authentic New England clam chowder. Lots of bland and tasty broth.
Clam and lobster rolls amazing.
Some nice craft beers
Just a perfect time
Lots of my friends have been here so it was about time I tried it for myself! The sea urchin and oysters were delicious as well as the cocktails and calamari. I don't think you can go wrong with any of their selections! Service was fast and friendly. Perfect place for a date when you're looking to impress. Will be back again soon!
Always solid. Always good.
Excellent food and outstanding service. They've done a great job with social distancing. It all felt very safe. I'll be back!
Not many restaurants, will every single item brought out to you - delight with intention and substance.
From the crust on their home made rolls, to the perfect interior temperature of their fresh fish.
As always, the food was very good, but the way they have it set up makes you feel very safe, which is just as important.
I am so happy they are open! The patio area is great! And, as always, the service and food were amazing!!
Went for Dine LA. Great service, nice drinks and good food.
Connie and Teds was delicious! The service was good, and the seating was spaced well. Marking the noise level as moderate instead of quiet only because there were sirens that flew by on Santa Monica here and there.
Great food and excellent service. All staff were very friendly and excellent at their job
Great seafood in a fun and casual but stylish environment. A bit pricey, but worth it.
Everything was delicious! We went for dine la experience great time. I love coming to Connie and Ted’s oysters are always great.
They were so sweet and accommodating
We have always loved Connie and Teds. nice atmosphere and food great. We get the new challenges, I think there is opportunity to improve on the outside look of the parking lot. more plants, candles on the tables more overhead lights? Food did not taste as good. Our usual staples were noticeably not up to par. Port agues soup watery and soft shell clams didn't taste super fresh. Service was excellent, kudos to the staff for doing their best.
Great meal! Oysters fresh and pristine! Lobster rolls perfect! Service excellent.
Amazing dinner and their COVID-19 protocol really put me at ease. The lobster was amazing!!! Easily could have eaten it alone, but had to share with my girlfriend. The freshness of the raw sashimi was also a winner for me. Grilled calamari was in a tomato based sauce that was impeccable. My server was great with all his suggestions I wish I could remember his name. Will be back soon :)
Perfect for our 2-adults casual birthday dinner -- great spacing of tables, spacing of seatings, big parking lot used wisely, clear and airy at our sweet deck table (thanks for the placement, Matthew!), we felt safe for our frist dinner out since March! Everyone was careful, serious but not dour.
Food is (always) every-bite-perfect; service was attentive but not hovering (thanks for the recommendation, Nick!); and the Hostess made us feel genuinely welcome coming AND going. When she said "Thanks for celebrating with us" it felt like she really meant it. Get a gift card for yourself - you'll want to go back often.
Leanne is the best. Your oysters are the best. Your calamari is the best. Your clam chowder is the best. Your beer is the best. Your service is... you guessed it, THE BEST!! Thank you for taking such great pride in your restaurant!!
It is a great place! I will be returning soon for lunch this time!
Our food took longer than usual to arrive, but the service and quality of food were excellent!
It was so nice to be back at Connie and Ted's. They have set up tables in their parking area that was formerly for valet parking. Small tables (2-4 people) with umbrellas - really nicely distanced, covered with butcher paper; paper menus and minimal interaction w/ the wait staff SAME FANTASTIC FOOD and DRINKS!!! They are also using their patio, of course!
Happy they are using Open Table for reservations and creating such a safe and great dining experience.
Many thanks, Connie & Teds!
We felt very safe Eating outside on the converted parking lot. Would feel safe going there again during COVID-19.
As two native Rhode Islanders, this place is legit! Now, they just need to add clam cakes back to the regular menu. Lobster roll with butter is all tail meat and it's fantastic!
Food was amazing! From their bread to their entree. So delicious :)
Amazing seafood, great service, and felt safe in their outdoor space during this time.
Connie and Ted’s is always a good idea for the best seafood in town
This place takes all precautions to keep guests safe. Temp. checks. One way traffic flow. Spaced tables. There is still good ambience and the hot lobster roll is beyond fantastic.
Safe outdoor setup
Very good food for those nostalgic for east coast seafood. Pretty expensive ($42 for a small plate of fried Ipswich clams with bellies) but it’s food you really can’t get in LA so it’s worth the splurge.
Loved everything! Crab cake appetizer was delicious! Lobster roll outstanding! Excellent service, beautiful outdoor setting (it's on Santa Monica Blvd. so there is street noise, but totally tolerable). Tables are well spaced, outside. Nice wine selection. Highly recommend!
i can’t believe they aren’t offering housemade fettuccine anymore! when i decided on the fish stew in its place, they had sold out of it already. it was only 7pm! plus the entire waitstaff seems to have turned over. in their place are abject waiters who, understandably in light of the pandemic, are more focused on generating revenue than cultivating relationships and excitement over food. we miss our old waiter whit who made us feel welcome and appreciated as we would visit at least once a month. unfortunately we may hold off on returning until we get through the pandemic. connie & ted’s seems plenty busy still (every table was full), but the quality and experience has sadly declined.
Perfect service. Perfect food. They’ve adapted well to pandemic dining rules. In the top ten
meals in my life.
Nice outdoor stoically distanced seating, same great food and cocktails as always. The lobster roll it fantastic, one of the best in LA.
Great neighborhood gem. Lots of fresh seafood! Casual dining at it's best. Covid-19 didn't slow this restaurant down. Service was exceptional. And, for my friends that need a ramp to mobilize, they're got one that takes you to the top level of outdoor dining.
Good time during covid
