Tiburon Fine Dining

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.

    Wonderful service from Christa, food was so good. Highly recommend the elk. All the food was thoughtful and flavorful. It’s noisy and crowded, if you are looking for an intimate and romantic place to dine, this isn’t it. But the food and service are very wonderful.

    We’ve never been disappointed at Tiburon. The food is top notch as is the service. The ambience is excellent. I mostly have the lamb. As good as the lamb is, the fried risotto cake is better. My wife generally has the chicken. Salads are awesome. The desserts are spot on. Two special to watch our for are the Hawaiian Escolar and the Bison Short Ribs.

    My wife and I dined at Tiburon for her birthday. This was our first time there — after living in Sandy for 30 years and always hearing good things, but never having dined there before. I must say our experience even surpassed our expectations! We were surprised how cozy and private the patio was, being so close to 700 East. The evening temp was perfect (not sure how the folks at Tiburon managed that!). 😎 Then our server Nate showed up, and took excellent care of us the rest of the evening. The food was amazing! We started with the pork belly appetizer, then were pleasantly surprised by the pineapple sorbet “palate cleanser.” Next came our entrees: delicious salmon with mashed potatoes, and just-as-delicious peppercorn-crusted seared ahi with pineapple fried rice. We finished the evening with mouth-watering New York style cheesecake. To top off the whole experience, a seriously talented 3-piece jazz combo set up on the patio and played the perfect set (featuring some outstanding improvisation) to take our meal and our evening to a whole other level of enjoyment. Needless to say, we will be back to Tiburon again (soon) and again and again…! Bravo!

    The food was really good. Definitely recommend the New Zealand elk. Wish I got a little bit more meat though. Portions were good but need a little bit more. It was worth it for our anniversary though. It got my wife really happy with the yummy mushrooms.

    The restaurant was extremely noisy because of the poor acoustics. My wife and I had to talk very loudly to hear each other even though we were just sitting a few feet apart because of the high noise level in the restaurant. When I made the reservation I asked that we could sit in a quiet and secluded area. It was more of a bar type atmosphere rather than an exclusive restaurant. For such an expensive restaurant the layout was more like eating in a cafeteria. The food although expensive was tasty and the service was acceptable. Overall the experience was disappointing.

    You need to try the New Zealand Elk if you have never had elk like me. It was incredibly tender & cooked perfectly medium rare. In addition, the scallops as a starter were delicious.

    I was looking for a special place to go to for a birthday dinner and was recommending this restaurant by a co-worker so I decided to try it out. Let me just say every mouthful made me feel I had died and gone to heaven! And that's saying alot. I have a sister who is a professional chef and I myself enjoy cooking so it takes a lot for a restaurant to impress me, but this one did. There was a live jazz band that was super fun to watch and the overall experience was delightful. Sometimes the service was a little slow but I enjoyed being able to relax and not feel rushed. Do expect to pay more for a dish than your average joint around town but know that it will be worth every penny.

    The dining was better than average, but considering the restaurant was "high end", it's not worth it to me. Most other high end restaurants are better.

    We were surprised to find a fine dining restaurant in this location. The area surrounding the restaurant is in need of renovation. The interior of the restaurant is spotless, but in need updating. The locals who frequent this place don’t seem to mind the dated aesthetics. The food was beautifully presented and high quality. Service was friendly and attentive. Though priced accordingly, for a fine dining establishment, I found it a good value with a lovely house salad and a loaf of homemade French bread included with our meal. It’s obvious to see this is a beloved local restaurant, which was filled to capacity on a Wednesday night with mostly couples and families celebrating a special event or birthday.

    We were seated outside and while it was initially hot, it cooled down enough by the end of our dining. Maybe a few more shades? Other than that it was superb!
