“Family & friends recommendation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2013

As other reviewers have mentioned, the dinners start with a killer house salad, bread & butter. That house butter is amazing, tasting of balsamic vinegar & sun dried tomatoes. Over two dinners every entree we've tried; elk, tenderloin & sea bass, has been spot on with beautiful presentation & big flavors. The service is skilled & attentive, they have some of our favorite wines by the glass & the chocolate mousse is as good as everything else.

“"fine" dining is a stretch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

It's a lovely restaurant and the food is quite good... but the use of "fine dining" is a little bit of a stretch. They use quality ingredients and the menu is big enough for good choices, but not so big you are unsure of the freshness of your protein.

“Can't wait to come back!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013

I heard about Tiburon through a car salesman who recommended it as his favorite place to dine. Although pricey, the quality if the food justified the price. We savored the bread and butter, dinner salad, crab cakes, pork belly, homemade sorbet, filet, and lamb filet. Exquisite dining.

“Very nice place but can be a tad noisy.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2013

I enjoyed dining here as the food was tasty. The selection of beers was interesting and tasty. My only complain was the noise level got to be too high for normal conversation voices.

“Fantastic food - but worth the price?”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

The food here is certainly terrific, and the service is decent. But for fine dining prices, you expect fine dining service and atmosphere. Our table and three others looked directly or partially into the kitchen and dish room. When paying those kind of prices I don't want to see cooks and dishwashers hanging out in the kitchen. If it was an open kitchen concept that would be one thing. But this is not.

Again food was fantastic - but for those kind if prices - $125-150 for dinner for 2 - the overall experience needs to improve.
