As much as I love a new restaurant I really love having a favorite place where we can go and be warmly welcomed by the staff; Ponti is that place for my husband and me. Its our place to go when neither of us wants to cook. The food is excellent with a interesting menu that manages to retain our... More

I love going to Ponti especially in the evenings/at night. The view of the ship canal, the lights reflecting on the water looks very gorgeous and romantic at night. The food is also very tasty and the ambiance wonderful. I love going there for well prepared, authentic seafood. It is a little pricey but definitely worth it. I would definitely... More

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!
