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.

    Food was excellent. The patio was hot and there were multiple flies. Waiter was excellent and service terrific. Based only on food and service a clear 5-star experience, but the atmosphere needs work

    We went on Tuesday night. Four of us were enjoying our 36th anniversary. The service was stellar (than you Edin). The live band was awesome. The food was delicious and the patio setting was just perfect. We will be back! It’s hard to find decent outdoor dining in our south valley area. This fit the bill to a tee. Great night for the four of us! We even closed the place down!

    We have dined here many many times and was always happy. This time was absolutely terrible. Doors were kept open during triple digit heat outside and the AC was not running. Due to the open doors the flies were out of control all over the restaurant. If you are going to charge this amount of money at least make it a comfortable dining experience. We will never be back.

    Over-rated! This was our first time dining at Tiburon after having it recommended. We made an early dinner reservation for two on a Monday evening and arrived on time. It was a warm summer evening in July, and we requested to sit on the patio which was empty. We asked for a table which was next to a water feature but were declined with, "that's a 4 top and it might be reserved", although she didn't bother to check to see if it was reserved. After we were seated, more diners started arriving, but the table we requested was still empty and stayed empty the whole time we were there. We both had the salmon and agreed that it, along with the sides, was average at best. As we were dining a couple of women came in and were seated across the patio, they became extremely loud and obnoxious, very vulgar language and inappropriate conversation etc., as if they were in a bar, and I am certainly no prude. I'm sure everyone on the patio heard them and I think it was the restaurant's staff's obligation to quiet them, but they did nothing. At that point we were ready to leave. In summary, it was not a pleasant experience, and the atmosphere is terrible, and I do not believe that we will be returning. And for the price, there are much, much better dining options available.

    We were pleasantly surprised by the size of the venue and how many seats there were. The ambiance was nice and the staff was amazing. Kam was our waiter and she is by far one of the best we have had! She deserves a raise! The appetizers and starters were great. The wine was spot on and the coffee as well! When we ordered, it was easy and quick, but the sauce we had with the ribeye was not to our liking. We easily had it switched out for the salmon dish which was so good! The elk dish too was everything we could have asked for. The staff was very accommodating to us and we will definitely be coming back!

    Tiburon never disappoints! Our little table of four sat outside, and despite the heat of the day, their little garden made it so we could sit outside in comfort. We absolutely loved every morsel of food. Best birthday dinner we could have had.

    They do some things well but tend to throw veges etc on top of entres which changes the taste and consistency. Need to get some basics like crab cakes right. Good restaurant that could be excellent with a little work. Also having only cheap wines by the glass ruins the mail. Open some big ones and just charge the fare.

    Best scallops in town. Salad amazingly fresh and love the house dressing. Meat very tender. Creme brulee has pudding which I love rather than custard. Server Cameron outstanding and most attentive. We are firm repeat customers.

    Everything was outstanding...the atmosphere, our server and most of all the food was delicious. We were two couples celebrating our anniversaries and our server (I think her name is Kinsey who used to live in Hawaii and our receipt says #13) was on top of our request. She was knowledgeable of the restaurant's offerings and check with the chef for what ever it is that she's not sure of. We had the crab cake appetizer and the seared scallops. Both were good except the crab cakes said lump and it wasn't. How about removing word lump and just simply say crab cakes. Three from our party had the tenderloin beef and it melts in your mouth good. I had the salmon and it was very tasty. We finished of the anniversary celebration with the creme brulee and cinnamon ice cream that we all enjoyed very much. Will definitely be back to try the other dishes.
