Great seafood dinner with an old friend

The bread on the table with herbed olive oil was okay but our two dozen oysters on the half shell were excellent. My grilled king salmon was very moist and super tender with great, mild flavor. The star though was this guys grilled haddock; it was over-the-top good, just bursting with flavor... read more

Four of us had dinner outside and enjoyed watching the boats, rowers, and sailboats go by. After being seated, we received a basket of crispy slices of bread served with olive oil and balsamic vinegar. We shared the jalapeno fritters appetizer, which were big and flavorful. I had the Alaskan Cod - it was perfectly cooked, served on a bed... More

From my experience you can do better almost anywhere in Seattle for good seafood than Ponti. Nothing was bad but nothing was great, including the service. They seem to be very impressed with themselves and that was annoying. Oh, and you will pay for this privilege.

This restaurant does fish right. It's hard to choose from their many fish options, but when smoked black cod is on the menu I go for it. I was not disappointed- seared with slight carmelization, moist and flakey, perfectly cooked. I felt sorry for anyone who hadn't ordered it. My husband's halibut was fine, but not the star. We started... More

Ponti is a very nice and sophisticated place in a quiet setting along the Canal. It is a little bit out of the way and you should look at directions beforehand. Staff is always friendly and the food is excellent. Good selection of wine as well.

Delicious seafood served nicely. We had an outside table overlooking the Ship Canal, making the experience even nicer. Truly fresh salads. We all ordered Alaskan smoked black cod. Cooked to perfection. My friends who frequent the place tell me the seafood is alwyas topnotch here. Attentive, courteous waitstaff, too. But not cheap.

Great venue (on the patio overlooking the canal), excellent dinner, very good value. We've been visiting Seattle and trying the various food options. Came across this place while visiting Fremont and looking for great seafood. Mrs had a pound of the best King Crab Legs so far, after a great Prawn appetizer. Mr had perfect Kusshi Oysters to start (OMG),... More

The seafood at Ponti is some of the best in Seattle. It's a great place to take friends visiting from out of town. On beautiful evening ask to sit on the deck. On my most recent visit I had the halibut, it was so fresh with an amazing preparation. Another excellent dish is the king crab legs. I've been many... More

If you love delicious food, and you like fusion restaurants, Ponti Seafood grill is for you. They have a delightful array of sauces which they serve such as curry, beurre blanc and fennel tzasiki. Crab spring rolls and fish tartare, all so wonderful!
