Ponti Seafood Grill Restaurant Review

: Ponti’s seafood-focused menu gets a boost from ship canal views glimpsed from spacious windows and from the terrace where guests may dine during summer months 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, and features 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 highlights smaller portions of several dishes on the formal dinner menu. The latter with its larger menu (and space) presents appetizers such as Dungeness crab spring rolls with sweet chili sauce. Seafood choices span 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.
