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.

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.

Great food! Lovely server let us stay as long as we needed to catch up. The prices are a little high, but the food is great and that Indian pudding was delicious.

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

Food was very good but spoilt by the slow service and apparent lack of interest in serving our table. A smile would have helped!

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.

The food was excellent, the wine list fairly priced, and sitting outside was a pleasure. Service was helpful and prompt. We will return again and again. Quality made the place a worthwhile time spent!

Wasn't as noisy sitting outside, though next time I don't want to sit next to a table of 6 or more. We had a couple serving problems and I don't know whose fault it was. Our drinks were forgotten twice . Our waitress compted mine. The food is really very tasty and nicely plated and served. They are interesting ly flavored! Many thanks

I've been there before and like this place. First thing I got in an argument with the valet guy who told me to pull up where the curb was high and I said no the door will hit the curb...you pull it up.
Sat down next to a table that had the brilliance to bring a screaming toddler into this expensive place. Ordered the clam chowder (New England). It was thin and watery with too many potatoes and not enough clams. It was much better a year ago.
Ordered the black cod and it was way undercooked. I had asked for it to be almost well done. Sent it back, still undercooked so I said to either burn it or get ma a lobster roll. That came and it was OK....but $200 (with tip) for a really disappointing dinner. The people are very nice and the wait staff is great. Too bad the food is not what it used to be.

As close as one can get to an east coast seafood joint.
Steamers? Yes! Fried belly clams? Sweet & juicy & crunchy.
Manhattan and Boston clam chowder (also something called Rhode Island clam chowder that I have never seen elsewhere.
Noisy inside, but moderate on the patio.
Service was extraordinary (usually, just good)
Fabulous deal on oysters after 9PM.
Went with NY'ers who stay in LA in August and eat in tony places...they adored it and chastised me for never bringing them before.

Took a friend out to celebrated her birthday. We live in Orange County, and were looking forward to a change of pace in West Hollywood. Unfortunately, it wasn’t worth the drive. We had a relatively early reservation (7:45), and though we were taking our time with drinks and appetizers, they were out of the special when we ordered our entree. We selected different entrees, and my hanger steak was not prepared as ordered (but was perfect the next day rewarmed as leftovers). We ordered a dessert to share, neither of us wanting one to ourselves, and though it was brought with a single candle to acknowledge my friend’s birthday, I was charged for the dessert. Not a big deal, I guess, but I don’t think I’ve ever been to a restaurant that either didn’t have a small dessert reserved specifically for celebrations or that didn’t deduct/waive the charge for the dessert. Perhaps it was because we did t each order one; I don’t know; I didn’t question it. On the positive side, the service was attentive and the drinks were good.

Went for brunch. It was really good and reasonably priced. The lobster and crab omelette was delicious. Seafood fresh, flavorful and a good portion. Also had the breakfast sandwich with egg, bacon and fried clams. Also good. Would like to go back and try other items.

This is one of our "go to". places when we want to have a wonderful dinner and a wonderful time. Service is uniformly top notch - efficient, friendly, and helpful. The atmosphere is buoyant and active, without being too loud or distracting. Food is regularly excellent. My favorite dishes are the stews and the Fish Taco specials.

I've been a regular at Connie and Ted's since it opened, but this was my sister's first time there; she loved it. We had excellent service and food--my only complaint (apart from the bill, which was huge) is that my steamed lobster was a bit overcooked. (C&T's used to undercook its lobster, so I'm not sure why it can't hit the perfect medium.) All in all, we had a lovely time enjoyed celebrating my sister's birthday there.

Service and setting are fantastic as usual for Connie and Ted’s. It is a go to spot for lobster roll or clam chowder, but for brunch I don’t think it’s worth going to over some other popular spots.
