I had family visiting in town and being a local, wanted them to have a nice dinner by the water but had no interest in the typical tourist restaurants (e.g. palisades, salty's, lake union restaurants, etc) then I remembered Ponti. Its tucked away in fremont area, overlooking the lake washington ship canal. My family loved it and watching the boats... More

Ponti is a wonderful romantic restaurant with incredible food and a great view of the water. We were seated outside. Our party had halibut and cod. Everything was prepared with the freshest ingredients and unique flair. Ponti is in a neighborhood near the city, but away from the tourist crowds. Great find while in Seattle.

Went with a group for a business trip, had the thai curry pasta with lobster and scallops, calamari and octopus appetizer, chocolate cake....everyone raved about their dinner. They have a nice little private room for groups but the outside deck was nice too - just rainy when we were there....

We returned to Ponti for our anniversary and was treated royally.. We had a table by the window, choose that location or outside on the canal if the weather is not too cold, but they do have heaters. We had rose petals on our table, a lovely congrats card and very attentive French speaking lady. She was lovely. There is... More

We were in love from the time we walked in the door. Beautiful decor! Great friendly, helpful staff. We were seated outside under the heaters,( just perfect). We'd first thought to eat inside but would have missed the amazing views and activities going on along the ship canal as well as the Fremont bridge. The menu was wonderful. We each... More

The King Copper River Salmon was done to perfection, moist, hot, with no distracting sauces or seasonings. It was allowed to stand on its own. Ponti's really knows how to do seafood, and is our go-to place for Copper River King.

We arrived at Key Arena only to learn that our concert had been postponed, needless to say we were bummed out. We had a Groupon for Ponti and decided to salvage our evening by trying a new restaurant. We were very happy we did. Both of our meals were great. Mine was the best halibut I've had in many years....

Been twice for dinner and once for Happy Hour this past year. The seafood is very fresh, high quality and perfectly cooked. The service is excellent and friendly. Love their unique location on the Ship Canal!

I so highly recommend this one!! Happy hour drinks not enjoyed by our group but pre dinner drinks were lovely! Our server was great. Left us alone to enjoy but there when we needed him I ate salmon and it was terrific! Each of us enjoyed our food, our service and the view! This one is truly special!!

We had a group dinner here that went very well. Service was excellent for so many people, and the food (from a limited menu for the group) very good - certainly my salmon and molten chocolate cake.
