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 absolutely amazing. Even though Tiburon is located in a quiet place, it has a strong following and reservations are recommended no matter what day of the week. I have never had a meal at Tiburon that wasn't exquisite and delicious... worth every penny (plan to spend 100 if you get 2 entrees and an appetizer). I wish we could eat at Tiburon more often, it is a fine dining experience every time.

    A recent local newspaper review cited Tiburon as a pricey place, but the the entree' includes bread, salad, sorbet, and a lovely preparation of fresh seasonal vegetables along with the potato or grain side. Compared to a high end steak house, where everything is ala carte, Tiburon is a great value. I have found the food and service to be consistently top notch.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 9/20/2008
    As the French say: the sauce is everything. Tiburon's dishes are strong on delicious sauces which makes the dining experience extra rich. The duck breast we tried was especially pleasing. Even the salad is a mixture of interesting flavors. In this city it's hard to find a restaurant that provokes your palate the way the chefs at Tiburon do. Tiburon is highly recommended.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 9/19/2008
    Tiburon is an excellent place. It's been panned by that scurrilous rag the Salt Lake Tribune. Do not listen to them, about anything really, but particularly about the Tiburon. The food is great, the service is wonderful and friendly and the restaurant is lovely. The salads are incredible. It's one of the few places were I actually enjoy the taste of the salad rather than just eating it for health reasons. I always have the lamb. It comes with a fried risotto cake which may be better than the lamb. They have a braised bison rib special sometimes which should not be missed. The new honey ice cream is very interesting. I do miss the old cinnamon ice cream, though. My one complaint is that I'd like to see them use Utah Lamb, Beef and Elk.

    This place was referred to my wife and I by some friends. There are few places in Utah where someone can enjoy true fine dining. Tiburon certainly defines fine dining. The music was just right for the setting. I had the Elk and my wife and the Lamb. WOW!!! They were both awesome. The crab cakes were to die for. Everything tasted as fresh as possible (including the items from the restaurants garden out back). We will be back again.

    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.

    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!

    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.

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!! :)
