“The best elk you'll ever have”
Reviewed September 14, 2012 via mobile

Many reviewers complain about the overuse of sauce at Tiburon. Maybe that's justified, but the fact is, no amount of sauce can overshadow the quality of the elk steak here. Most restaurant elk-even if it's farm raised-is still slightly tough and a little gamey. At Tiburon, the elk is literally like butter. You can cut it with your fork, and it tastes absolutely pure. Like butter. I concede it would be lovely without the sauce. Maybe ask for that on the side? The filet mignon is also delicious. Salads feature seasonal produce and are consistently delicious. I've dined at Tiburon many times, and have never had a bad experience.

“Always very good, food and service”
Reviewed August 30, 2012

Been here about 10 times and has always been very consistent on the food. If you like Elk, Ahi or a good rib-eye eat here. If they have fresh halibut, it is great. All dinners come with a very nice salad. Service is above average. Go enjoy, they execute this menu great!

“Beat the heat with a trip to the patio!”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

Tiburon recently did a special lunch event for our group. The patio is a delightful place to go when the summer heat just keeps coming! Marinated flank steak salad was a hit, and guests were making plans to return again soon. Tiburon's a keeper!

“Want a special meal?”
Reviewed July 29, 2012

My husband and I were passing through Sandy for one night on a 40-day road trip around the U.S.A. Based on the reviews and rating on tripadvisor, we went to Tiburon Fine Dining in Sandy, Utah. Yummo!!! We only hope we get to pass through here again in the future so we can eat there again. Their House Salad was delicious (and followed by a palate cleanser), as was the bread. We started by sharing a Scallop Appetizer and it was well-seasoned and cooked to perfection; they were expensive, but wonderful! My husband had Elk, which was superb. I had the Seared Ahi that was promised to be RARE. It was not only rare, it was very high quality...and the preparation was awesomelicious! Each of our plates were filled with tasty additions.

“Great meal! You get what you pay for!”
Reviewed July 10, 2012

My wife and I have been looking to try this, but because of the higher prices had waited. We saw them advertise a Groupon and it was on. The elk steak with creamy mushroom “Duxelle” and green peppercorn demi-glace was cooked perfectly. My wife even liked it and she will not eat venison. She had the char-grilled filet mignon, served with a roasted shallot & cabernet demi-glace, with sautéed mushrooms . The demi-glace was perfect!!! I can't wait to try their appetizers next time we go. We won't need the Groupon to go back. I will pay for meals like this with no issue.
