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 held a small Christmas party here. There was something for everyone, great service, great ambiance, and the food was top notch. We spent 3 hours here and never felt rushed.

The food and service are always amazing! The footprint puts everyone in tight quarters. Is what it is.
If there were more appetizers we would have ordered. Charcuterie would be great addition!

Great good and service as usual, lighting a little too dark to read the menu or to see the details of the food. The metal chairs as usual were not very comfortable. But the food and service makes up for the minor inconveniences!

Food was superb. Cut of meat amongst the best. Sides were tasty and of high qaulity and we’ll matched. Wine was excellent. Service was attentive and timely. Lighting and view of the yard was cozy and romantic.

The food was awesome and our service was fantastic, but it was so loud in the restaurant and the tables were kind of crammed together, you had to raise your voice quite a bit to be able to hear and be heard over everything else going on and the other conversations around you.

This is my 2nd visit to Tiburon. I ordered their New Zealand Lamb Tenderloin (medium well) and dark chocolate mousse.

I've never been a fan of lamb but since I've had a great 1st time experience with elk (through Tiburon also), I thought of giving it another shot. Lamb turned out good although I felt that it was well done rather than medium well. The parmesan/parsley risotto was heavenly! Portions were just right.

I truly enjoyed their melt-in-your-mouth mousse which was served with berries and dark chocolate shavings.

Overall, great food taste, portion, and presentation. Great ambience as well.

The food was excellent (their house salad is divine and our meals and dessert were A+) but I was surprised that from my chair, all I could see was an old apartment bldg and it really impacted the ambiance. Much could be improved by a trellis of some kind in the backyard of the restaurant. There was also a server that spoke unusually loudly which also impacted the ambiance negatively (I can tell you every item on the house salad because she said it loudly every time she brought it to a table.)
We will be back because the food was so good but I would never come back if I was intentionally looking for a romantic or intimate dining place.

I had a great experience with Hoof and Vine and so when I learned that Tiburon is their sister restaurant I wanted to check it out.

I went to Tiburon for the 1st time with my husband on our wedding anniversary.

Despite my reluctance/hesitation, I ordered the New Zealand elk because of the raving reviews. Glad I tried it! It was so tender and not gamey at all.

My husband had the Ribeye which was amazing too.

We also ordered the Kurobuta Pork. The balsamic onions complemented the tender pork well.

Overall a great 1st dining experience with Tiburon.

Tiburon is an absolute hidden GEM !
The ELK is Phenomenal and where can you get ELK?!!!!! Only other places I have found that offer Elk on the menu is way up in Park City or Jackson Hole.
Lamb rack or Halibut is always a great alternative ! Hidden Gem !

We always love coming to Tiburon - it is on the of our treats when in the Salt Lake area. When you pull into the parking lot and see the huge garden out back, you just know the meal will be good. Start with fresh hot bread and a creative spread of some type, followed by an outstanding salad and then scoop of sherbet (last time made from blackberries out of the garden). Entrees are always thoughtfully prepared - the menu is somewhat limited but what they do, they do well and generously. So generous, in fact, that we had no room for dessert this time. But there will definitely be other times.
