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.

Food was good, chocolate mousse was overpriced and not as good as I thought it would be. The lobster and steak with garlic mashed potatoes were SO good! We got sat in the corner and there were some VERY loud tables next to us so it was hard to have a conversation.

Very nice dining experience. We ordered every appetizer on the menu, and all of them were great. Nobody had a bad meal. The beer and wine selection is also great. The service was very good. It is basically a 4 or 5 course meal by the time you include appetizers, salad, sorbet, meal, etc. They come and clean your place and set new silverware for each course.
The atmosphere is nice. Dark and cozy. It is a very small and intimate restaurant. All of the food is absolutely amazing. So while it is expensive, it is worth it for the quality of food.

Tiburon is some of the finest dining in Utah, definitely the best in Sandy. The food is delicious, but I must be honest, it is expensive by Utah standards. The only problem with Tiburon is that if you order an appetizer per person, you probably will be too full for dessert, and trust me, you want to leave room for the chocolate mousse, so share an appetizer!

The menu was very limited. My food was not served hot only slightly warm. The service was friendly and good. The ambiance was dark, and crowded. It was an old house converted to a restaurant. So tables were small and close together.
I don't think it was worth the price.
The parking lot was only half paved, the rest was gravel.
Sorry, not a 4 or 5 star restaurant.
We will not be back.

Tiburon is always amazing and we love coming there. However, the last few times the creme brulee has been a tad runny.

Congratulations! We have been coming here for years. Food, service is consistently phenomenal. Everything was absolutely perfect tonight. Fillet, Elk and Tuna were all fantastic. All ingredients were very fresh including the salads which are challenge for most restaurants particularly this time of the year.Foie gras here (sourced from Wyoming) was actually better than seared preparations we sampled in Paris and French countryside this summer! This is the best restaurant in all of Salt Lake. Downtown SLC restaurants are generally pricier, and provide much smaller portions.

They have changed out alot of staff.. Food was still good.. not great.. I have been here many times.. They weren't really on their game that night.. everything was off. The salads were way over dressed and weren't edible for the table. It was like a oil slick. appetizers cold. main dishes were pretty good.

Took my wife out to dinner for her birthday. Neither of us have ever been, so we were both looking forward to it since we had heard nothing but great things about the restaurant. One of the best fine dining restaurants we've been to in the valley. We will definitley be back. Only negative thing I can say about the food is that they over dressed the salad. Service was like no other. Wine selection is great.

Tiburon never disappoints. Celebrated my birthday with my family (which included my 12 & 14 year olds). They love it. The food is always amazing. Service and ambiance...excellent. We always celebrate here because the food is always top notch! And they NEVER rush you!

We were celebrating my husband's birthday. He was thrilled when our server brought out some chocolate mousse for him. It was fabulous! We might have to go again some time just for dessert.

Overall amazing experience, but there were some flaws to the environment. Both my and my wife's chairs were wobbly and couldn't find a good balance on the tiled floor. Was a bit loud and difficult to hear one another clearly, and the longer table for two made it a bit less intimate to have a good conversation. Food was incredible, and still likely to go again sometime. Service was impeccable as well.

I haven't been to Tiburon in years, like over 10 and I'll absolutely be back soon. We are always looking for places to take our out-of-town guests and this is now my new favorite. Service was exceptional and the food delicious. Great flavors and presentation. Can't wait to return and bring my husband.

The ambiance is acceptable, but not outstanding. It is small and intimate. The menu is small and simplified by including bread, a really unique honey butter, a nice salad, watermelon sorbet to cleanse pallet, entre with specific sauces, potatoes, and vegetables. Not much choice. It is what it is. Mostly pretty good. I scraped sauce off my rib eye, too heavy for me. Rib eye cooked to perfection, however. My wife liked the turf better than the turf. Cheesecake was excellent from dessert menu. Location is convenient and there is plenty of free parking. We would go again.

Love the place intimate setting a great place to relax and enjoy the people you are with. A must place to go for a great night out. Unfortunately, the rib eye steak was a little tuff. I should have had the Elk that I have had before which was fantastic.
