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.

    We brought our daughter (17) here for a special occasion and had a wonderful experience. The restaurant is warm and comfortable, the service excellent and the food delicious. Two of us took advantage of the "split plate" option, which was perfect. We did bring in our own wine, and the restaurant handled that beautifully. It was truly a memorable evening, and the highlight was our visit to Tiburon.

    This was our second visit to Tiburon and we enjoyed it even more than the first. We're not big portion eaters so tried the "split plate" with the filet. You get 1/2 the entree and a regular salad, vegetables, sorbet and bread. Just right! The steak was tender and flavorful.

    This is our favorite special occasion place to eat. Best food in SLC and maybe in Utah overall. Awesome fresh items from their garden if you come in the summer/fall time. Steaks, Fish, Elk all amazing. Caprese is amazing with fresh Heirloom tomatoes, goat cheese, etc. Must visit this place at least once.

    While there was nothing bad about our dinner, there was also nothing great about it. We don't routinely spend $150 (including one bottle of champagne) for dinner for two, so I guess we expect something above average. We shared the scallop appetizer which was very tasty but slightly under-cooked. The salad (which was included) was okay but nothing special. The filet was cooked to our request but the mushroom sauce was overpowering and too thick and sweet for our tastes. The garlic mashed potatoes did not have any garlic flavor and arrived lukewarm at best. The five green beans were excellent and the sorbet between courses was a nice touch. The ambiance is nice and the service was good.

    the waitress took plates away while one member at our table was still eating. she then asked if folks wanted desert 'before' the person had even finished their plate. WRONG. That is the level of service I'd expect at Denny's, certainly NOT at a restaurant that touts quality food and service. It was un-crowed, and we were perplexed by the poor service, as usually we receive good service. This 'was' one of our favorite places to dine, not so sure we will come back. Please train your staff to a level expected of your restaurant.plates are served to the table on the right and cleared from the left, there is NO stacking of plates in front of customers or reaching over customers plates, it's not rocket science, just basic food service 101.

    We had driven by Tiburon so many times and had never stopped. When looking for a restaurant with really good food before a concert, we thought that we would finally give this a try and we were not disappointed. We were able to sit on the patio on a gorgeous fall evening. The scallops were perfectly cooked as an appetizer. All entrees come with a salad that has apples and pecans. We enjoyed the swordfish special that came with fresh corn and crab salad as well as the salmon with bacon and leeks. Both were excellent! For dessert we shared the creme brulee, which was also excellent. While the food was fantastic, the thing that will keep us coming back is the excellent, and attentive service. Tom was the ultimate professional.

    We were in from out of town and saw that this place had good reviews but were disappointed by the service and some of the food. A couple of us had the steak and loved it but the mashed potatoes were nasty. I've never disliked mashed potatoes at a restaurant so this was a first for me. Each of the four of us had something wrong with our meal. The service was not equal to type of restaurant Tiburon is trying to be. One person asked for their fish to be spiced hot and it came out with no spice. He asked the waiter about it and he said he forgot and would bring out another. When he did, it had a sweet, not spicy sauce on it. Another person asked for coffee and it was never served.

    I have had bad days at work before—we all have—and I want to say that I have enjoyed impeccable service each of the dozen or more times I've eaten at Tiburon. However, I think I received the tail end of my server's bad day. He wasn't unfriendly or discourteous; he simply seemed distracted. We nearly missed our after-dinner plans because, after specifically asking for our check and then waiting over 20 minutes, I still had to go walking through the restaurant to find our server and get our check. All that said, the food here was and always has been quite delicious.

    We had a great dinner at Tiburon. We both had sea food dishes that were excellent. The Ahi Tuna was of high quality and not overpowered by the sauce. I especially like the way the vegetables were cooked...not over done as is often the case! The service was quite good, and we would definitely recommend it to others. Outdoors is probably the preferable seating area when warm.

    I needed to find a place to take my husband for his birthday, so I did some research and came across Tiburon. I decided to make a reservation online which was very easy to do. Our waitress was great and kept our drinks refilled as needed. My husband had the Elk and I had the swordfish. Both were excellent along with all of the sides, appetizers, etc... We will surely be back when another special occasion comes up. Thanks for the wonderful experience.

    We went to this restaurant after I bought a voucher from Amazon local (a real great deal - a $40 voucher for only $20!!). We've never heard of the restaurant before so we decided to try and we were not disappointed. The service and the food is outstanding. Our waiter shows up at the appropriate time to clear our table of the extra dishes and just very attentive to our needs, refilling our water glass, etc. My husband had the elk and I tried the seared Ahi tuna and it's one of the best in the area. Beautiful location for special location.

    Don't know why we had never dined at Tiburon but we will be back. The menu is very limited in its choice of entrees. We had the roast chicken which had a wonderful sauce served over grits and several very good veggies. The house salad was delicious. The wine list is reasonable. I wish they offered a couple of pasta dishes. We are not fond of elk, their signature dish, nor tuna nor lamb and were not in the mood for steak so the only option was chicken. Our waitress was outstanding, attentive but not hovering. We would have liked to have been seated on the patio but apparently you must ask for this when making a reservation because a couple of minutes after we were seated inside, two couples were seated outside.

    Dined on 8/16/2014
    I was disappointed to see that the ribeyes were sliced. While they were easier to eat, there was obviously much less meat. For $41 that is unacceptable. Also, my steak, even though sliced so it was clearly visible, was not medium rare, but very, very rare. I felt this time that the food for the price was not as good. In fact, we decided that we could go somewhere else and get food for comparable quality, for much less money. This is sad for us, as we have been going to Tiburon for several years, especially for, but not limited to, special occasions. This was actually the second time I have had to send my steak back in the last few visits. The waitress was great!

    Location was a little off the normal path in which one would locate "fine dining." However, once inside and seated, everything settled nicely into place. Everything was well worth the price of admission. Food presentation, excellent, taste, excellent, atmosphere, excellent, waiter, little goofy at times, but it made it fun. Wife and I celebrating our anniversary and wanted to do something different than say a Christopher's. After dinner and the drive home, we both said we will be back. The elk, halibut, and the dessert was great. We brought our own wine but their list wasn't too bad.
