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 Is outstanding and a good value because salad is included and a sorbet after the salad and before the main meal. portions are generous. they could update the décor a little bit. and we were in the back patio and the metal chairs are so noisy if moved and so heavy. music was loud when we came in but right away the waitress told us she was going to lower it and she did. so it was pleasant. we love it in the summer when you can eat in the garden. we have gone to eat there several times and were never disappointed. wine and cocktails are reasonable priced. we will be back.

Everything I hate - from the yummy spread that came with the bread, to the flavorful salad, to the between-course sorbet (all of which come included with the meal), to the dinner special (tonight it was braised bison with jalapeno grits - outstanding) was excellent. Service was attentive without being over-bearing. I also tried my husband's chicken which he ordered off the main menu, and it was delicious. Our kids ordered salmon and tuna, which they fully enjoyed. We were too stuffed to order dessert but I wish I did. My guess is it would have been as great as the rest of the meal!

Ordered the pork-belly appetizer which was great. The lamb was excellent as was the steak. They even made a simple pasta dish for our 4 year old. Service was great. My only complaint would be the ambiance. I don't know if it was the furnishings or the lighting but atmosphere didn't seem as good as the food. I'd go back but I'd like to see them do a make over so the restaurant matches with how good the food is.

I love the food at Tiburon and it never disappoints. What did disappoint was being crammed in a table behind a column and a wall when the restaurant had plenty of open seating.

What a pleasant surprise! Tiburón has been around a long time, but we’d never tried it until an Open Table suggestion. The food was very well prepared and delicious and the service was excellent. A nice quiet place for an excellent meal.

I didn’t like that my view was of the apartments to the South nor the view of a busy road to the East. Would have been nicer with noise cancelling curtains.

The service was excellent, the staff greeted us and seated us immediately. They attended to our needs, always keeping our water glasses full and making sure we had enough bread. The steaks were excellent and cooked just the way we liked them. Be sure to check out their dessert menu, the dark chocolate mouse is the best.

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.
