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.

Better than anticipated. Had long looked forward to dining here, and now regretting all the times we allowed the chance to pass us. Food was perfect, and the ambiance is cozy. The lighting is darker, but perfect for a romantic evening. Staff was friendly and attentive.

Can’t wait to go back.

I took clients here for a business dinner and we all loved Tiburon. The menu features both meat and seafood, and the food is fantastic. Our server was very attentive and professional, making great suggestions and keeping our beverages refilled and plates cleared in quick fashion. Restaurant is cozy, feels like a classy cabin or lodge. Appetizers were delicious- crab cakes and pork belly- the latter being some of the best we've ever had. A delicious salad with fresh greens, apple slices and candied walnuts followed, it was crunchy and delicious. The house specialty is elk, which is what I ordered for an entree and it was amazing. I've never had elk before but I have eaten game meat, and it tends to be a little tougher and sometimes over-seasoned to mask undesirable flavors that come with eating game living in the wild. Not so at Tiburon. The elk meat was extremely tender- our server said it could be cut with a spoon and he was right. They served it a perfect medium-rare and I savored every last bite. There was some type of honey glaze sauce on the side, and it was just the right sweetness. We were so full our only regret is that we didn't leave room for dessert. This has to be one of the top restaurants in Sandy, and even if you need to drive a bit to get here, it's well worth it.

Tiburon really is a neighborhood gem. Not many options for fine dining in Sandy, but this is the place. Steaks, prepared to perfection, best I have ever had. Service is attentive but not intrusive. Staff pay attention to details, refilling water, bread, whisking away dirty dishes, etc.

We ate here on our anniversary and it was perfect. Very romantic and quiet. The food was astounding and I was impressed that they change out your silverware after each dish to avoid mixing flavors. Before they brought out our main meal, they served some fancy iced green apple mixture to cleanse the pallet.

Tiburon is a special little gem in the Salt Lake valley. Charming atmosphere, friendly & experienced staff and a wonderful menu make Tiburon one of my favorite dining experiences. I love their ahi tuna with The 7 Deadly Zins Zinfandel and their scallops are some of the best I've had, ever.

Tibetans never disappoints. We were last in Sandy 3 years ago and always dine in this restaurant. The service was good. Even though the server seemed new.
The elk and pork belly was wonderful! They cooked a special vegan dish for my granddaughter. The chicken breast

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.
