Ponti Seafood Grill is a Seattle dining scene landmark. It serves a wide range of market fresh fish in its Italianate villa that sits on a cliff overlooking the Fremont bridge. The ingredients are always fresh and include wild-caught seafood and local produce. There is also a full bar and extensive wine list to complement the Ponti Seafood Grill�s various dishes.
Some of the dishes at Ponti Seafood Grill include fresh albacore tuna tartare, white Gulf prawns, Dungeness crab spring rolls and steamed Penn Cove mussels for starters. The restaurant offers larger plates like grilled Alaska halibut, wild sockeye salmon and English pea risotto.
Soooo good! Very sorry you closed the next day on July 2, 2016. 😟
Too late. Ponti is now closed, forever. Sigh. One of Seattle's best restaurants gone.
We chose Ponti's for a small celebration of our 15th wedding anniversary because we knew it would be wonderful--and it was. Love love love the ahi tuna with the tempura coating wrapped with seaweed. Great service, attentive and full of personal character. Excellent ambiance, no matter whether in the main dining room, the bar area or the balcony seating. Plus, thank you to the manager for accommodating us by adding an extra guest at the last minute.
It is a tragedy that this unique, gorgeous and excellent seafood restaurant is closing- what a loss to Seattle.
One of my favorite Seattle restaurants. You Weill be missed.
The restaurant is closing. The party is over. Our meal was wonderful. I hope the staff can find new homes
We are devastated that Ponti is closing. They were obviously short staffed for such a busy Monday, so service was a little slow, but the food was amazing. I suspect that the crowd was trying to soak up the last few days before they close. Our ceasar salad was delicious, and my halibut was perfectly prepared. My husband had the chicken, and it was great too. Our server was incredibly knowledgeable about the wine list and pairings, and the pinot gris he recommended was a perfect accompaniment to our meal.
I've been driving past Ponti since I was a kid, and I wish we hadn't delayed my first trip there to the week they were closing. Best of luck to the owners, and I hope that this is just one big marketing ploy to drive business and they're really staying open forever (PLEASE!!)
Thank you for 26 years of fantastic memories!!! And best of luck in all of your future lives and so heartwarming to hear that all the employees decided to stay until the very last opening day!
The owners are retiring so sadly Ponti's is closing. Will miss this great restaurant.
So sorry that Ponti's is closing. It's one of our favorite restaurants and the end of an era. Thanks to all at Ponti's who have made our events, special occasions and every day dining an exceptional pleasure. You're going to be missed!
