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.

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!

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!

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.

Huge fans.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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!

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.

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.
