A very nice seafood place on the ship canal in Fremont. Pro tip - they have valet parking since parking in the area can be challenging. The vibe is cool and the views are pretty good. The staff is professional and service-oriented. The food is traditional NW seafood fare, well prepared and delicious. A great place to enjoy fresh seafood.

You will not forget your visit to this special restaurant serving only wild fish and seafoods. Outside patio seating enhances the unique entrees with views of the ship canal and Fremont bridge. I enjoyed broiled Octopus which was flavorful and finished to perfection. My family all tried something different and everyone raved about their meal. We finished with a "trio... More

Located under the Aurora Bridge and by Seattle Pacific University, this high end facility provides a high level of food and service. Wait persons are nicely dressed and friendly. Small plates in the lounge are excellent and happy hour goes all evening!

Surprisingly great food in a long established place overlooking ship canal. Bar/cafe great value all night and happy hour. Will go back in summer to sit outside and watch the boats. Crowd was mostly in 49-60 range.

We attended a wedding party at Ponti Seafood Grill. The service was nearly perfect and the food was amazing. The staff was welcoming and attentive but unobtrusive. They cook their salmon on the rare side to keep it tender. The setting on the ship canal was elegant and romantic. This is a great place to spend an evening!

I was really expecting more from this restaurant, but with all the wonderful seafood venues in Seattle, this one did not make my list. In our party of eight, there were those that very much enjoyed the salads, grilled octopus, and seafood stew, but my cod was dry. Our server wasn't much into seeing that our needs were met. I...

This is a great location and the restaurant was very impressive. Just what we were expecting when we booked for a birthday. We were seated at a very nice table overlooking the waterway. white tablecloths and friendly hostess. A nice birthday card was waiting at the table..... The server seemed to be not very interested in getting our order correctly,... More

Ponti Seafood is located at the water's edge. The ambience is 20th Century, and guests can actually talk over dinner without shouting. The food is outstanding. I had the seafood stew, and I would highly recommend it. The others i our party ordered scallops, halibut and salmon. Everyone was very satisfied with what they ordered. And service was friendly and... More
