Apart from the good food and service parking is never an issue and there is valet parking as well, if required. Above all the restaurant is quiet. It is actually possible to carry on a normal conversation. Happy hour in the cafe section is an great inexpensive alternative to the main dinning room.

Top notch restaurant with servers and sommeliers who know their staff. Great atmosphere. Alongside the Ship Canal which no doubt would provide great entertainment if visiting in the summer. The Crab Pasta was one of the best I have ever eaten and the wine suggestion (Oregon) was excellent.

Fresh ingredients for Seafood keep us coming back to this popular restaurant. This is where we could have a light dinner with appetisers, entries, and dessert yet fully satisfied in taste. We can leave without feeling heavy and guilty. Be prepared to pay at least a moderate price. Getting the dinner check to pay and leave could take time when... More

While visiting our son, wife and 5-month old granddaughter, our family of 7 dined at Ponti's on a Sat. night. We were definitely in the mood for seafood, and this restaurant was recommended to us. Ponti's did not disappoint! Every course was well-presented and tasted delightfully. We will definitely dine here again when in Seattle.

Ponti is a Old Seattle classic restaurant. The dining area and deck overlooks the Canal and the Fremont Bridge. Small and intimate, you can enjoy great food, enjoy a conversation and look at the passing ships as they traversed into or out of Lake Union. Off the beaten path, isolated this gem of a restaurant is one you should experience,... More

If you want a restaurant with wonderful seafood, a warm interior, nice view, and a romantic atmosphere or merely one where you can actually hear & have a conversation, and one with very good service, then Ponti's is for you. We recently visited during the Dine Around Seattle promotion, where one can get a three course menu for $33. Unlike... More

Situated on the Montlake cut between Lake Washington and Lake Union, this charming little restaurant has a great atmosphere and view. Unexpectedly the last night of Restaurant Week, four old time friends met for an evening of fun and we were not disappointed. the food was great and so was the service.

Our excitement to try this new local restaurant was quickly destroyed by our server, Chad. It's sad to think that the entire restaurant is sullied by one horrible server, but management can thank Chad. We came for restaurant week to scope out the place as it's a short walk from our house and were looking for a good long-term seafood... More

Every course of our dinner was wonderful, from the mussels in wine to the lava cake and everything in between. Truly exceptional curried seafood. The setting is amazing - right on the water between Fremont and Ballard. A romantic place for an excellent (albeit pricey) dinner.
