We had dinner at a few Friday nights ago and really hoped for more. We were in Seattle to visit our daughter and took a couple of her friends out for dinner. I had the best dinner with the crab Thai pasta. The girls had tuna, swordfish and one other dish that wasn't memorable. The biggest problem was my husband... More

This restaurant is located near the Fremont Bridge and has a view of the water (think crew teams rowing past as you dine) and shorebirds soaring through the air. The restaurant prides itself on fresh, sustainable, wild-caught fish and seafood, plus a few steak and chicken and vegetarian entrees. Try the crab spring rolls--full of crab in a delicious thai...

My wife and I were celebrating our anniversary at Ponti's Seafood Grill and had a wonderful experience. I had the King Salmon and my wife had the Seared Albacore Tuna and we both enjoyed the taste and presentation of the food. We also had the appetizer crab roll with the chili sweet sauce and it was excellent. We had a... More

This is a lovely restaurant. We have been here before, and the food has been consistently good. Good service, nice wine list, fresh seafood. Had the Wild Alaska King Salmon -- very nice!

I've had the pleasure of eating at Ponti twice,recently. The place is a gem because of its consistency. The service is professional, the food quality very high and the location on our ship canal is lovely. Their preparations of Alaska seafood are excellent. I drank the Roth-Alexander Valley Cab both times and enjoyed it very much. The ambiance is subdued... More

My wife & I celebrated our wedding anniversary with dinner at Ponti. When I made reservations I told them we were celebrating our anniversary. Upon arrival numerous staff wished us "Happy Anniversary" and our table was specially decorated with rose petals. The food and service was outstanding. The ambiance and view reflected a high end restaurant. In addition, staff do... More

Valet parking started the night off right, followed by a 3 course meal that was just perfect for celebrating our 20th anniversary. Service was excellent, the food was light and delicious, and the setting was perfect. Outdoor dining available in warmer months and dining rooms (4) available for larger parties. It was a wonderful evening. My husband ordered the curry... More

Ponti has great fish. The calamari is my excuse to go and don't be afraid to ask for more bread to sop up the left over liquid! The crab spring rolls are really tasty. We had the halibut with mushroom risotto and the halibut was exceptional. We also had the 5 spiced black cod. This is a really assertive dish... More

Good food, and good service. It is located on the canal so the view is very pleasant. The restaurant is rather small so best to make reservations. Not open for lunch most days..

The food is very good, well prepared and presented. Recently had the calamari (which was NOT deep fat fried) served with olives. Shared entrees of halibut and black cod. A nice bottle of red wine and no room for dessert. Really like the outside seating, it is under cover with a view of the canal and Fremont Bridge, as a... More
