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 bland, not tasty. Fish tacos were blah,(and I love fish tacos).Aioli for fried calamari tasted like eggs and was super thin in consistency. My husband adores lobster rolls and didn’t finish his despite being undersized and the ratio of claw meat to tail meat was too high.
We have eaten here many times and always had good experiences before this visit. I hope the management is able to resolve these issues. It’s been a tough year for everyone so we will try again.

We chose Connie and Ted's as our first place to go in over a year after the staying in for the pandemic and it didn't disappoint! The food was incredible as always- the service excellent. I felt very safe dining outdoors in their patio.

Excellent New England seafood! We're from Boston and although we love LA, the seafood here isn't the same. We enjoyed chilled oysters to start, then graduated to the lobster roll - butter not mayo and fried clam basket. The cocktails and dessert were succulent too!

We were celebrating a birthday and craving seafood, especially clams. the clams were very good, we had them raw and steamed . The cost seemed high but I hadnt had clams on the half shell in quite awhile. We also had the three kinds of clam chowder. we were disappointed in the new England chowder, it was thin and not as tasty as some we have had other places.

Delicious and the staff were lovely!!! My only complaint was that the lobster roll, as good as it was , wasn't worth $36 dollars. It was kinda small and that seemed steep.

Our Saturday lunch for four on 5/1/21 was perfectly handled, from reservations adjustments through service to departure. The menu was full of their favorites, with 5 varieties of daily catch and seven choices of fresh oysters. Three of us enjoyed the lobster rolls (one of our lunch favorites) and salads, and I went with a dozen extremely good fresh oysters (chef's choice) and an excellent crab cake. Couldn't have been a better seafood lunch anywhere in LA.

The best place in LA for seafood, especially East Coast seafood. I miss sitting inside but the terrace is very nice and the outdoor parking lot is OK. The big problem is very limited parking near the restaurant. Service is fine. We don't come as often now due to parking. I miss the bluefish.

The service did nothing match the price tag. Took nearly 40 minutes to get water after making a reservation. While the food was great, the experience was not one I would recommend and did not enjoy.

Best seafood in town - best selection of VERY fresh oysters and French fries are a must - not a huge fan of New England clam chowder - But this one is AMAZING!! light but still rich, not to rich, just perfect!! We love this place and try and go at least once a month.

Food was actually not edible... really really bad. The shrimp that was part of the shrimp cocktail was old tasting and not fresh and actually looked dirty. I ordered a cup of the chowder and it was so watery that it was neither appetizing nor edible. My main course of mussels in white wine broth tasted as if something like cleaning solution had been accidentally dropped into the broth.

Overall, the food was so bad that I didn’t eat it but didn’t send it back either. I wouldn’t have known what to say was wrong with it and but also feared for my health if I finished it. (And was terrified that they would bring me something else and I wouldn’t be able to eat it either.) That is how bad my food was

The meal was the exact seafood extravaganza we were looking for. The service is always laid back and fun there as well. The only negative about Connie and Ted's is the price point is on the high side. That being said, the food is top quality and absurdly good.

What a pleasure to dine al fresco and feast upon seafood from the east! East coast that is, where my own and Michael Cimmurusti's roots are. Thank you thank you for the raw hard shell clams and soft steamers from Massachusetts. The maitre d' was so generous in finding a great seat for our party and our server was charming, attentive but also let us have our space. Okay, they put more lobstah in the lobstah rolls back east but that's a minor point given that they tasted great and we were fast filling up. Oh and did I mention onion rings to die for? I just did.

The service was very good. Food varied. The fish and chips? The fish was excellent the chips undercooked. Oily fried clams in sorry batter with undercooked fries were underwhelming.

Always a wonderful time out at C&T's. I am at high risk for Covid and don't qualify for the vaccine. This is literally the only restaurant I have been to in over a year b/c they're the only place that I trust them with my health and safety completely . Food and service was just perfection as always!
