“Amazing food for not an amazing price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2013

We ate here because I had bought a Groupon to this place. The food was great and the service was excellent. We ordered the chicken breast and beef roast. Both were delicious. The salad and bread were also great. The price was way too high for the quality, however. It was as high priced as mountain resort restaurants in Park City but doesn't have the view or ambiance, or really as good of quality. It was great food but I wouldn't eat here again just because it was very expensive and not tucked away in a beautiful spot, just on the side of the road.

“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.
