Ponti Seafood Grill Restaurant Review

: Classic views of Seattle’s ship canal set the stage for enjoying Ponti’s seafood-focused menu. During summer months, guests may dine on the terrace while watching boats and barges pass beneath the Fremont drawbridge. Inside the Mediterranean-styled building, there's a stylish, informal café and a more formal dining room. The former offers happy hour drinks with a less expensive bar menu, nibbles such as pommes frites dusted with sweet fennel salt and served with garlic aïoli. Or you can opt for a three-course dinner menu for $20 that features smaller portions of several dishes available from the formal dinner menu. The latter space presents appetizers such as Dungeness crab spring rolls with sweet chili sauce. Seafood choices range from the classic grilled wild Alaska king salmon to inventive tempura nori-wrapped ahi. Bouillabaisse melds its fragrant broth kissed with saffron and a splash of Pernod with tiger prawns, Manila clams, Penn Cove mussels, and scallops. For a sweet ending, choose the lemon tart or the custard trio featuring chocolate pot de crème, espresso crème brûlée, and white chocolate crème caramel. An extensive wine list offers Northwest wines at a range of price points. Service is friendly and professional.
