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.

The food was pleasantly surprisingly good. I thought I knew how to cook a pretty good steak, yet no comparison. It was so tender and mouth watering. Really enjoyed our meal. Thank you. We will return.

Top notch experience. We were skeptical due to the location but were absolutely floored. The star of the night was the ingredients, you can tell that they work hard to get fresh natural quality ingredients. Glad we found this great spot close to our house. Service was also top notch.

We have been here a number of times over the years and it was predictably good. Seated on time and quick service. Tenderloin was wonderful. The only shortfall I see is the menu selection, which only has 7 or 8 choices. Just one salad, which is good, that is served with their main courses. Also, no soup. So, what they have is good but but the choices are few.

Great food... great service ... great place to celebrate our 59th wedding anniversary. BUT, I always wonder why when we are making reservations for a restaurant and they ask if it is a special occasion that when you put down it is, they never mention it when you are dining. We normally make our reservations through open table ... maybe they don’t let restaurants know

Food was excellent. With the place so small and tables so close together it’s hard to enjoy your own company. For us we had a table next to us that were so load and obnoxious. They were extremely rude and other tables were looking over at them. I think people need to be aware for their surroundings. Yes we will absolutely return but I think waiters or the host need to be aware of tables being loud and politely tell them to please keep it down.

My husband and I and our young adult children enjoyed a delicious dinner on 1/4/19. The service (Kenzie was our server) was outstanding. The food was fantastic. We had the elk, a short rib special and the salmon, along with a scallops appetizer. The house salad was a nice surprise. Nothing like your typical house salad. Loved the candied walnuts. Would definitely return and highly recommend.

We had the unfortunate experience upon arrival of the restaurant not having our reservation even though I had received a confirmation from open table. I'm not sure if that is an Open Table issue or the restaurant. Either way the hostess was able to promptly seat us and offer an apology. We thoroughly enjoyed our meals, however, while we were eating we overheard our waitress offer the nightly special to the table next to us - that was not offered to us. The Buffalo Short Ribs sounded wonderful and surely one of us would have ordered them if they had been offered, that was disappointing. Also, I do enjoy a sturdy chair, however, the chairs on the patio were very heavy, hard to move, and extremely noisy when they scraped across the stone patio. For this experience I could not offer 5 stars, but would consider giving them another try in the future.

I had given our waitress a gift card coupon that wasn't refundable. It was for 25 dollars. She used $3 of it. When she gave me the bill, I told her she should have asked me because I just lost $22. I come here all the time, the food is great, but I thought that was a pretty crappy customer service thing to do.
