We had a party of 6 people for dinner. The food was excellent as was the service. Unfortunately it was a hot day and the dining space was uncomfortably warm for some of us.

About the restaurant
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.

I enjoyed the restaurant. My only complaint is that it was too loud.

It's wonderful to have a restaurant nearby with great food, great service, and great ambiance. My wife and I are going twice this week to the Wild Rose. Periodically we need the high end restaurant experience. It's restful and stress relieving to let someone else do the work required to present a delicious meal. It's great to know the food will be consistently excellent. As "fast food" has become what's readily available, it's fabulous to find a significantly better alternative. I'd rather eat at home than eat "fast food". But the Wild Rose Restaurant can easily coax me away from the drudgery of preparing my own meal.

Delicious food in an incredible setting! We dined on the patio and, in spite of most of the tables being filled, it was so peaceful. All we could hear was the sound of the waterfall and our own conversation. Log Haven has kept the same chef for many years and he is very gifted. The combination of flavors and textures are delightful. To top it off, the service matches the quality of the food and the setting.

The food was EXCELLENT. The burrata was to die for. The service was so spot on. The meal was not rushed and the server didn’t make you feel like u need to go. The noise level was low. And it was very easy to talk with ur guest.

Our first time at Twisted Fern with friends who had been before. Menu was better and food was better, according to our friends. Our server was discreet and efficient. The food was good, and served in good time between courses. We will return to have a good meal and to support local restaurants.

St. George
About the restaurant
A culinary island in Southern Utah, the Painted Pony brings a touch of class--and intriguing flavors--to St. George. The restaurant, tucked away in Ancestor Square, is exceptionally clean and cozy, with contemporary art, fresh flowers, and -- in the evening -- a top notch romantic atmosphere with subdued lighting and patio dining.

If your surroundings don't clue you in, your first glance at the menu will. Painted Pony is not your standard fare. Contemporary American cuisine evidently doesn't mean just another good steakhouse, and the simply written food descriptions promise something new and intriguing for your palate.

The Painted Pony has perfected the fine art of using fresh ingredients and delicate flavoring. An exceptional wine list, generous portions, attentive service, and reasonable prices will convince you to return to "the Pony" anytime you're in St. George.
