Nice interior. It is a little ways off the usual path, so you have to go find it, but it was worth it. Nice atmosphere. Good food and very good service. The salads were very nice. Seafood was very good. I had crab and it was delicious.

I came here for a business dinner and thoroughly enjoyed my wine and food. It was dark by the time I arrived so I can't comment on the view but there were beautiful large windows. The person I was meeting was running late/I arrived early and our server was very patient and checking in once in a while. This was... More

Bummer, the last day for this wonderful old classic is July 2nd. More bad news- the new owners are the elks club. Very, very sad sad sad, been coming to this place for years and I don't see my partner joining the elks club.

We went as a party of four on a Tuesday night; with a reservation for 7:00 we were seated immediately. While the outdoor patio was filled, maybe a direct result of the nice weather, the inside dining room was less than 50% capacity. Regardless, reservations are always the best bet. Our server was very attentive and helpful. We were not... More

With all the shiny new hipster restaurants popping up all over town people tend to overlook this old school gem. It's a sweet classic restaurant with good food and drinks and a GREAT happy hour. I'm so happy it's walkable from our house.

A local friend took me to Ponti, to avoid the downtown Friday night scene. I could see why it is a regular destination for many locals. There is a family feel. The staff is friendly and accommodating and the food is good but nothing feels contrived. The decor is a bit dated and the patio metal chairs were a bit... More

Truly Ponti is a gem! The views are lovely and the menu is creative and follows through with amazing flavors. It was, by far, my best meal in Seattle. Service is personal and attentive. Save room for dessert and a chocolate martini!

We had a great Dungeness crab appetizer. Two of us had salmon, King and sockeye, both very tasty. Another person had the halibut. A terrific dinner. Would go there in a heartbeat again. Only drawback is the parking...valet only.

In blossoming spring, Ponti's has to be your window seat on the world. The rhododendrons in spectacular foliage bracket the skulling teams on the water with the beautiful birch trees leafing out in front. Sounds like I'm employed by Ponti's, doesn't it? I'M NOT. This is a prime restaurant destination in Seattle for visitors or home folks alike. Excellent seafood.... More

Ponti has been our favorite restaurant in Seattle for years. The food is consistently good and the ambiance is very nice. When it's warm and sunny their terrace is hard to beat, with wonderful views of the ship canal and all the vessels floating by. Inside, the noise level is low which is hard to find nowadays. So many restaurants... More
