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.

    Perfect evening. Six old friends. Corkage was reasonable. We never felt shamed for BYOB. We enjoyed the Elk, Salmon, crab cakes, scallops… perfect portions. Bread and salad and pallet-cleansing sorbet make it a good value!

    Tiburon always does a nice job. Service and food was excellent. Noise level a little high - full restaurant as usual. Did notice it seemed size of salad had been scaled back.

    Food is always great. The place is small so it gets very loud. It’s a great place for a special occasion or nice night out. You won’t leave hungry. I wasn’t impressed by their choices of desserts.

    A very pleasant experience with fantastic service. Every item we ordered came out great, the only issue was us not being able to eat more! The interior decor and ambiance was very nice, but maybe a bit simple. The exterior however was interesting and extremely nice. The service was the stand out part of our meal, with a very great attention to detail. The plating was very fun and it was nice to see the thought put in. Definitely worth what we paid for, especially comparative to other restaurants of the same price.

    The first few courses were fabulous. Entrees were a little less memorable but everyone seemed to enjoy. Our server was outstanding. They were also able to seat us in a secluded area which was very helpful to those in our party who have hearing issues.

    Waitress tried to give me lessons on how meat was cooked then my meal came rare when I asked for medium. Entire meal was ruined. I'll never eat here again and I'll be sure everyone I know doesn't either.

    Always exceptional! I really don't know how long we have been patrons, but it has been well over a decade, maybe two. The quality never waivers, it is always excellent, regardless of what we order, we know we'll have a premium dining experience, no questions asked. It has gotten to the point that it is our "go to" restaurant. We keep trying to find competition but it has been difficult, we always keep coming back. Without a doubt, a must try!!

    I love that they let you split an entree for an extra $10 and provide an extra salad and veggies. As a senior my appetite and pocketbook appreciate it very much. Very good service also.
