A word from Tiburon Fine Dining
Tiburon Fine Dining has quietly become one of Utah's premier restaurants. Tiburon is located in the south end of the Salt Lake valley in an unassuming building that formerly housed a fruit stand. But don't be fooled, Tiburon serves award-winning contemporary American cuisine ranging from pan-seared Beef Tenderloin with Foie Gras and Madiera syrup to Black Sesame-Crusted Ahi Tuna with Honey and Soy Marinated Carrots. The Crab Cakes consistently win best in the state and the salads are raved about by the locals. But it does not end with the food, service is always top-notch. Led by a staff that has been with owners since its opening in 1999, guests always feel welcomed in the warm and friendly atmosphere. And in the Summer with it's patio dining. Tiburon is the place to dine in the South Valley.

    Tiburon is the best food in town. From the appetizer, to the salad, to the main course, it is the best I've had. The chef was out numerous times to check with other diners to ensure this service and the food met expectations. When a tossed salad can make you say wow, you know it is a fantastic restaurant. Never disappointed.

    Tiburon has been one of our local favorites for years now. We enjoyed our visit this time and our favorite dishes still excel at pleasing the taste buds. While I had the Australian Lamb, very robust in flavor, my wife had her usual favorite, the Ahi Tuna, which she found delicious. While the service was excellent, it should have been more attentive. One should not have to pour their own water and wine, not at a restaurant of this class. We will be back, that can be counted on.

    We had a fabulous meal at Tiburon! The food was delectable with unique combinations. Between the duck, elk, and lamb we were all very pleased. We especially appreciated the flawless service. Our server was very knowledgeable of each menu item, answering all of our questions. She was also extremely friendly and accommodating. Thanks for a special night out.

    This was only our second experience at Tiburon but it was as fantastic as the first time we dined there. We brought some friends who had never even heard of the restaurant and they were amazed. Our server, Taylor, was extraordinary. The salad and bread were divine. Then we each had a different entree and sampled each others. The tenderloin and Chilean Sea Bass were delicious, but the big hits were the elk and ahi tuna. The vegetables were cooked and seasoned perfectly. For dessert, we had some of the specialty Creme Brulee' but the chocolate mousse was indescribable. We had an incredible experience from start to finish. Oh, and before we left, we took a little walking tour of Taylor's Garden. Awesome!

    Although not 'regulars' at Tiburon we have eaten there several times and it is always a treat. We have eaten in great restaurants around the world and the food at Tiburon really does rate right up there with the best. The service is always great too, friendly and discreet... right there when you want someone but not in your face when you don't. A great experience for lovers of good food and good wine.

    Incredible. The people were both friendly and professional. There is nothing stuffy about this restaurant, yet it is extremely elegant. The wine list is superb and the food like nothing you'll find in the area regarding it's uniqueness. Johnny is a superb server, and he and the others make you feel like your an invited guest to their home....

    I thought the food was fair, but it was a little too rich for my liking. The main course and dessert would probably be the best part of it.

    It was our 35th wedding anniversary, and I wanted something special for her. It was the BEST! The waiter (Mike) was very attentive and helpful. I have only eaten at Tiburon one other time, and I still think it is the best food I have ever had, bar none. It's a little pricey for regular dining out, but for the special occasion, it just cannot be topped.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2004

    Tiburon was enjoyable as always except for the sticker shock on the food and wine. I realize that food prices are escalating but this jump was extreme. $40 for entrees in Sandy, Utah?! No thanks. Plus the rest of the menu has changed except to get more expensive. For these prices I'm looking unique preparations and tastes.

    Reservation was Sat. pm at 6:30 and we had a fantastic dinner on the patio! Service is always AWESOME! and great wine ... great food ..... only bummer was that I was too full to enjoy my favorite Creme Brulee! :( Thanks so much for a wonderful night. On a different note: my parents just moved into SLC from Phoenix/Scotsdale area, and I sent them to Tiburon for my mom's birthday dinner. They said that hands-down .. it was the best meal they had had in a very long time (they also said that they haven't eaten anywhere in Scotsdale or Phoenix that would even come close in comparison to the meal they had at your restaurant!) They were very impressed!! :)

    The food was heavenly. The salads were great, the steaks were very tender and flavourful. The creme brulee was creamy and rich. Lots of different combinations of flavors, as in the butter, that were surprisingly good. Our server was very attentive but not overbearing, and we got there early enough that the atmosphere was quiet and romantic.
