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.

                                                    First time here - and it didn't disappoint. Service was exceptional. The young lady that helped us (Halie) was very attentive and was obviously enjoying being there. The rest of staff we met were equally great. The food was excellent! Will definitely be returning.

                                                    This place was perfect! They were busy so we waited a little bit to get our food but the server was nice and gave us our appetizers for free. We did not ask for free anything. The server noticed we were waiting a while to be served our main dish and took the initiative to give us the appetizers for free. Food was Amazing! I got the Ribeye and my wife got the Surf N Turf. To me this was priced a little cheaper than Ruth’s Chris.

                                                    Tiburon is our go to restaurant to celebrate a special occasion. They consistently deliver on great food and great service. I'm already looking forward to our next time back!

                                                    I love this restaurant. They focus more on the quality of their food than anything. The service was great (Eden) and the ambience is romantic. We ordered an appetizer, two dinners, AND a dessert and the value far exceeded the cost. By the way, the creme brûlée is the best I have EVER had and I have been to some amazing restaurants.

                                                    It's taken 3 years to find a top notch restaurant in Utah but it appears that I've just found it. Tiburon is outstanding. We were a party of 4 and tried many entree dishes. The elk, 2 steak specials (Wagyu & Filet with foie gras), and the salmon. All were excellent. For starters we had scallops, crab cakes, pork belly, and the mussels. Again, all were fantastic. The wine and drinks were great too. Waiting staff were perfect. It's a real pleasure to dine in a restaurant that understands the art of cuisine. Worth every penny.

                                                    Amazing!! We her know of my food allergies and she made sure that everything we ordered was prepared so that I could enjoy it. My husband and I were celebrating our 1st anniversary and she was kind enough to comp us a dessert. We enjoyed our experience there and will return and recommend other to go

                                                    The steak I ordered was the porterhouse and I requested it to be medium rare. My wife ordered hers medium. She ordered the fillet but hers was closer to medium rare and mine was past medium. Very disappointed in the cook. We didn’t mention it at the time due to fear of retaliation. We were so excited to find this place. Sad to say we won’t be back.

                                                    The meal (Beef Tenderloins for the both of us) was DELICIOUS and Taylor was a thoughtful and attentive server. I'd love to go back and sample more of the menu.

                                                    I have eaten at many nice restaurants in SLC but had never quite made it to Tiburon. It was amazing great sides, great entrees, and a great atmosphere. Can't wait to go back again. Thanks for a great night out with my wife.

                                                    Tiburon is by far one of the best restaurants in Salt Lake City or any other metropolitan area. I have been there many times and the food is always 5 star as are the servers. If you haven't eaten here you have missed out on a great culinary experience!

                                                    This is not fine dining - this is upscale, casual perhaps. Their food is good but its about walking in the mud from the parking lot, having other guests trample over us because there is no room / no orderly process as the front door, its about the insane NOISE levels inside the place. I truly do not expect that I will ever return again. Again, food is solid, but the place is below standard in every other way. I've been their three times and its disappointed in the same areas all three times. I'm done.
