Ponti Seafood Grill
Situated on the Lake Washington Ship Canal, this Queen Anne restaurant is known for its panoramic views of the Fremont and Aurora bridges. The dining room is designed with white tablecloths, fresh flowers, and wall-to-wall windows, but the two waterfront patios are often in higher demand during warmer months. Incorporating Asian, Mediterranean, European, and Pacific Northwest flavors, chef Alvin Binuya’s menu includes such dishes as crab spring rolls with sweet chile sauce and Thai curry penne with scallops, crab, basil, and tomato-ginger chutney. Adjacent to the restaurant, Café Ponti serves a more affordable menu with two daily happy hours.
