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 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!

A most excellent and undiscovered restaurant even though they've been there 22 years. The building can be easily missed. Really enjoyed the quality of the food and service!

We love this place and chose to celebrate our anniversary here. I was a little disappointed when nothing was mentioned about it. No biggie though since I know that restaurants are struggling now.

Their food, as always, was on point! It’s not an inexpensive restaurant but I feel like the price is well justified by the quality of the food, serving sizes and the incredible flavors.

The food is outstanding. Two of us had the special which was a lobster and filet combination dinner. The lobster was perfectly prepared and the filet was one of the best steaks I have ever had in my life.

I wonder if the chef is new, because my salmon was seared almost to the point of burning on the bottom. It's never been like that before. My husband's beef tenderloin was well done, rather than medium, and the flavor of the gravy with mushrooms was overpowering. Definitely not as good as we've had in the past.

My wife and I celebrated our wedding anniversary at Tiburon, server Taylor was cordial and professional, the food was exquisite through all courses of the meal. We were seated outside on the patio with perfect ambiance and temperature. Thanks Tiburon, we'll see you again! Thanks Taylor!

I love this restaurant! We consider it a special place for special guests. Fabulous food, great wine list, quiet, best service. Whatever the spread for the bread is they bring you at the beginning of the meal is delicious. I have had just about everything on their menu, and everything is wonderful. Can't wait to go back.

We had a very pleasant evening with two good friends. We were able to have a very nice conversation and enjoy our food. The waitress was very helpful. She explained the special with precision. She asked us questions about our desires and brought us what we wanted. We were able to enjoy eating at a leisurely pace. The presentation was fabulous.

We had a wonderful dinner. The Swordfish was fabulous. The wine list was good.
Our server was wonderful. I forgot her name but the bill showed server # 44. She
was on top of everything. We sat inside and it was nice and not noisy. Will definitely
come again.

This was our first time at Tiburon. Food was excellent! Service was superb! Christa was outstanding! The large party next to us was noisy and overwhelming, which precluded us from having a quiet, intimate dining experience. All other aspects were so good we'll come back and try again after we've had a chance to save up.

This was the most enjoyable dinner I have had in a really long time. We ate outside, the evening was nice, a little windy but didn't feel a thing. Waiters always coming back to refill water, even after we were finished with the meal and just talking - very unusual at other places. The food! The food was wonderful. Prepared just like we asked. A little pricey, but worth every penny. These people want me back. To make a reservation was the easiest I have done. And it even let me include the rest of my party with emails. This experience far exceeded my expectations.
