I love Ponti Seafood Grill. We've been there many times and have some favorites. The Dungeness Crab Spring Rolls are excellent. Wild Mushroom Risotto is another favorite. Also don't miss the Thai Curry Penne!

We go here for happy hour now and then and every time, the food is always very good. Dinner entrees are excellent. A little pricey but the food is high quality, great presentation and the restaurant has a relaxed atmosphere. The owner is really nice. Great place to bring out-of-town friends.

4 of us lucked out with reservations during Seattle restaurant week.. I've been to Ponti's before and it's good, but restaurant week was a particularly good value, with a couple choices for that suited all of our tastes. We got a seat outside, the staff turned up the heat for us, and we had a lovely time. Service was responsive... More

Friendly voices on the phone with directions was our first impression and it only went up from there. We had a party of seven and there was not a single complaint in the bunch! From drinks to apps to dessert it was ALL Good and the service, which can ruin the best of meals only made it better! Go with... More

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. Service was good although a little slow at... 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
