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.

Our dining experience at Tiburon was excellent. This was our first time at this restaurant after being recommended by friends, and it did not disappoint. Britney, our server, was helpful and kind. The mocktails were good. We appreciated that the meal was spread out, with starters, salad, and then entree. The New Zeland Elk was cooked to perfection, and so was the tenderloin. Thr spaghetti squash was divine and complimented the plate well with the smooth and light mashed potatoes. Great ambiance overall, intimate, quiet, and nondescript. We'll be back again.

About the restaurant
Our menu features Rustic Italian Recipes, Thin Crust Pizzas & Fresh Pastas. Stoneground Italian is located downtown in a second-story loft overlooking the architecturally acclaimed Salt Lake City Public Library. Since opening in 2000, owner Bob McCarthy has been cooking up a dining experience that’s warm, welcoming and firmly planted in his Irish-Italian roots. He takes a simple approach to serving delicious food: always fresh and house-made.
The environment at Stoneground is cool and casual; some describe it as a rustic/urban vibe. You’ll feel comfortable dressed as you are. The window tables have mesmerizing views and are ideal for intimate dining occasions. The outdoor deck seats about 40-people and is the go-to spot for your fair weather celebrations. Park and enter from the rear of the building. Parking is Free. Hope to see you soon!

The food was excellent. I have always ordered pasta, but decided to order the steak and I was not disappointed. It was cooked to perfection and the potatoes were creamy and loved the light truffle flavor. And as always when we come here we have the polenta tots. These are the best deep fried treats ever! Wonderful dinner all around.

I wanted to treat my kids to a wonderful dinner while I was visiting and was looking for something special and was not disappointed when I booked a reservation at The Capital Grille. Our experience was a culinary triumph, beginning with the host staff escort to a beautiful corner booth. My DIL started her evening with an espresso martini, which by far, was the best she had ever tasted. Our waiter, Gabi, was very attentive, patient as we tried to navigate the various and fabulous selections and made excellent recommendations for those of us who couldn’t finalize choices. There isn’t anything that could have made this experience more memorable and without a doubt, looking forward to our next visit. Gabi, we’ll be looking for you to once again, complete a dining triumph.

The food was excellent as, always. The service was even better. Steaks were done to perfection, the lobster Oscar was divine. The lobster Mac and cheese was up to its usual greatness. And the key lime pie was tart like it was meant to be!

Everything tasted great! Our entrees came with bread, salad, palette cleanser (sorbet), potatoes, and veggies. We ordered the chips, elk, and salmon. The salmon was a bit overcooked for my taste, so if you prefer it medium I’d just recommend communicating that when ordering. Overall everything was great!

About the restaurant
VENETO is a dining experience that brings to life the history, culture, and traditions of a region in Northeastern Italy. It's a warm, enlightening setting that leaves bodies, minds, and spirits nourished through quality, handmade cuisine — best shared in good company, with love.

Our menu honors year-round classical favorites and seasonal specialties from the region of Veneto, with ingredients coming from Italy and the finest local purveyors. But it's the experience around those elements that you won't forget.

Being at VENETO is like being in Amy & Marco's home.

We want you comfortable, relaxed, and immersed in Italian culture as you ponder the menu, soak up new knowledge, and enjoy inspired conversation along the way.
