Contemporary American
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.

I wanted to give my parents a nice Christmas gift this year and I came up with a fine dining experience. I was a little nervous about bringing my young children to such a nice establishment but our waitress, Sierra, was so amazing and accommodating to them that it really eased my nerves. Thank you for an unforgettable memory!

Incredible food and excellent staff.

Tables are rather close together and we were sitting halfway into a doorway, but no one bumped into us and besides it being a little loud, we had a wonderful time.

The server was amazing. I forget her name, but she was a slight red hair girl. She was prompt, knowledgeable, friendly and extremely attentive. We love this restaurant. It’s our favorite destination for all special events.

I rate this place 5 stars even though we were seated by the front entrance where all the wait staff gathered. It didn’t seem at first like it was meant to be a seating area.

Once the food came out we forgot all about where we were seated. The food was heavenly. No better meal in town. It was one of the best dining experiences in my life.

Food and service were fantastic as usual. Been to this restaurant several times and have never been disappointed. The service works so well together and are a credit to the restaurant. Their training has been excellent and it always nice to see familiar faces, who stop by and chat. An excellent restaurant.

This beautiful restaurant is stylish, intimate and classy. I had been there before, but I wanted to treat my fiance and friends to a special dinner. Everyone in our party was knocked out by the service, the food was a special treat. Flavors and the detail to food is nothing short of spectacular.
If you find yourself in SLC, sneak over to Sandy and treat yourself. And yes save room for dessert. Chocolate mousse is a must!

Our waitress was really good until her 20 person table arrived. The crabcakes were very soggy. The chicken was dry. And the noise level gave me a headache it was so loud. It was my first time there and it was recommended to me. Disappointed.

Food was amazing! Service was good. Ambience was a little bit of a let down. the building is old and outdated, and not in a good way. The walls remind me of an old basement. However, the food was so good I would still recommend it!

Wonderful food, great atmosphere, and for once you actually get the quality of food you pay for. We had the lamb tenderloin, elk tenderloin, salmon and the rib eye and it was all amazing! The only complains is that a steak should not need so much “sauce” which was easily solved by spooning it off. I would recommend this place for anyone celebrating a special occasion or just a night out with great food.

We both came home with the same thought…… just not as good as it used to be.

Then we both got sick in the middle of the night. Only thing we shared was the pork appetizer 🤨

We have been eating here since it opened. The food is always fantastic no matter what dish we order. And the service stands out from other restaurants. This is a place that cares about their name and wants to provide the best in every aspect.

I chose Tiburon for it’s reputation and thought it would be a nice atmosphere to mentor some emerging plant breeders ahead of the ASA-CSSA-SSSA convention. Tiburon is away from downtown, but a reasonable drive in my rental car. The quiet atmosphere and excellent service allowed us the opportunity to focus on building professional relationships, our goal. The food was excellent. From the starter through the dessert, the flavors were varied, blended and robust due to the artistic way of using ingredients in complex ways to create a wonderful culinary experience. We shared tastes of our three different main plates family style. All were excellent in their own unique way. It added to the bonding experience over fine food, well prepared, and excellently served. I would love to be back to Tiburon to repeat this experience and to mentor additional young people who will be leading our science to improve the many plant based ingredients in such amazing dishes. Improving plants to improve lives! My compliments to the chef! Bon appetite!

In the past I have gone to tiburon and it was great. The service was great the food was delicious and we loved it. but this time they put us in a table so close to someone else I felt like I was bothering them the whole time I was there. The food was good but the portions have been reduced to taste test size. The service was something you would expect at denny's, so so.

The food at Tiburon didn't disappoint at all. Unfortunately the service was not the best. We kind of felt our table for 2 that didn't order alcohol was not as important as the the others tables with more that did order. We were there over 2-2.5 hours. Drinks weren't filled, we just felt forgotten about. We have been there before, but honestly after our visit last night, we will probably find somewhere else to dine when looking for a special occasion type location. We have been to places like Ruth's Chris, Spencers and Flemings and have never felt this way.

Food and service were wonderful. Menu hasn’t changed in years which can be comforting. Because it’s a relatively small space, the noise level from other diners can get loud and sometimes interfere with dinner conversation, depending on where your sitting. Would I be a return customer? Absolutely!
