About Tiburon Fine Dining

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.

We have been going here for years, and the food is always great, but this time we realized how bad the ambiance was. There were 2 big parties there that night and they were so loud! The more they drank the louder they got, but after they left...it was much improved. Two other points about the ambiance are the tables feel close together, and the chairs (I cannot believe they still have these chairs) are so uncomfortable. The food and service were great!

I highly recommend Tiburon to anybody that hasn't been here before. From the service to the food to the atmosphere tiburon hits the high mark every time. Not once have I ever been dissatisfied with anything at this fine restaurant. Please go and you will really see how wonderful it really is. Thank you tiburon keep it up!

Everything tasted excellent except the lamb had so much black pepper in the sauce that it overwhelmed the distinctive lamb flavor to the point that it could have been any kind of very tender meat with a rich pepper sauce on it. The salad and cheesecake dessert were amazing. The two of us could talk with one another easily. We will come back on special occasions again.

The food was unreal and the service was exceptional. I had the New Zealand Elk prepared medium well with a side of mashed potatoes and asparagus. The course was spaced out perfectly and the food was well balance. Great place for a romantic dinner!

Melt in your mouth salmon -- so awesome! About the only thing I don't like about the Tiburon is the closeness of the tables. But I understand that the because the food is so good. all the tables are necessary. The earlier in the evening, the better the privacy and noise level. Will we go again? Oh yes!

Our group of four adults had a lovely time. The service was a tiny bit slow, and the waitress kept smirking at our conversation (granted, we were talking about stereotypically nerdy subjects!), but other than that everything was pretty much irreproachable.

I was surprised to find that cocktails, beer, and glasses of wine were very reasonably priced. $8 for a full Epic is a great deal.

Of course, our food was stellar. The elk in particular was VERY tasty and cooked perfectly. It's their signature dish for a reason.

It's definitely worth a visit if you've never been, or even if you haven't been in a while. Great atmosphere for a romantic evening.

Appreciated that we were able to book a large group reservation online (when other restaurants in town said no). The food was great. We had wonderful, attentive service. Large portions made the price reasonable.
It was a little louder than i would normally care for with such prices. But overall it was great. Can't complain much.

Tiburon is my husband's and my favorite place to dine in the Salt Lake Valley, hands down. We go there every year on our anniversary, and throughout the year for special date nights. The food is absolutely the best. Our favorites include the crab cakes, elk, and duck. You won't find food this good anywhere else! The ambiance is relaxed and mellow. The service is great. Can't say enough about Tiburon!

Tiburon is a hidden gem !
Phenomenal food and unbelievably GREAT service !
Appetizers came out of the kitchen in just minutes !
Appetizers were awesome - we had crabcakes and scallops and they could not have been more delicious.
The house salad they delivered to our table was pure Heaven. For dinner I had the New Zealand elk steak and it was superb. The crème brûlée we had for dessert was the best I have ever had anywhere !

Tiburon is my favorite place to take my friends out to dinner!

WOW!! Tiburons is beyond amazing. I've been to some nice restaurants, Tiburons is for sure in my top 3. This is not a family restaurant. It is great for a date night, anniversary, work Christmas party etc. full wine list and knowledgeable staff. It is a small building, they have made it work very well. Don't expect a quiet atmosphere it's not sports bar loud, but like I said it is a small building. That been said, the tables are not on top of each other. You will have no complaints. I had the salmon, the flavors were unbelievable.

Delicious from beginning to end. I usually detest salad dressing, and was worried when I learned the house salad came with a house dressing, but not only was it the right amount of dressing, it was divine. I loved the flavor. Having the house salad taste so good right at the start of the meal ignited excitement for what was to come, and it did not disappoint. Highly recommend.
