"...unlike chain restaurants where the food and service may be equally polished, Ponti has something that cannot be replicated - genuine character."
Seattle Times

"In 1990, Ponti burst onto the Seattle restaurant scene with innovative 'fusion' cuisine...the restaurant quickly established a reputation for superlative food and service...for 15 years it has upheld that tradition and perhaps now deserves 'classic' status."
Alaska Airlines Magazine

"A gorgeous spot at the south side of the Fremont Bridge. This serene, elegant seafooder has a well-deserved reputation...Unbeatable al fresco dining."
Zagat Guide

"Suberb! Ponti offers the single finest waterside dining experience in the city...Like a European vacation without the hassles."
Seattle Weekly News

"There is much to love...Comfortably intimate bar, ship canal view, world-roaming wine list, Mediterranean ambience. Seafood is Ponti's middle name, but palate pleasers such as the succulent lamb, offer carnivores a reason to rejoice."
Seattle Times

"Ponti Seafood Grill is a major player in the fine dining game...fresh ingredients, creative presentation, great service and a magnificent water view."
Puget Sound Business Journal
