The owner was extremely rude and confrontational when we had a question regarding our bill. We have dined at this restaurant a few times but will never return as he has ruined the ambiance for us. The wine is grossly overpriced.

The food here is creative and worth exploring. I have had great meals and great disappointments. So it can vary. Last visit I had a very tough filet mignon. Just seems wrong. They have a special slow cooking over, but it simply did not do the trick. However, we had great appetizer. One was chicken wings, the other was a... More

Mindy, while it's wonderful to see that so many dishes have been a big hit, I apologize that this hasn't always been the case across the board. When you come here and order the filet mignon, you should certainly only expect the very best. This is what our staff believes in, and I will be sure to address this. Thank... More

The menu wasn't exactly what I expected at a place so "American". The menu has items that have alot of words in the description, which just means there are too many flavors jumping all over the place. Though there were only 20 people in the restaurant the noise levels were terrible. I don't know if it was their acoustics or... More

The food was very good but very small for the price. The reason for 3 stars is the service. Both times we had horrible service. I literally had to go to the bar to get a glass of wine with my meal. We had to flag down waiter and ask for everything! The owner was there, we asked him to... More

Description
13 American Table is a family owned restaurant located on the North side of East Palmetto Park Road in Boca Raton. The owner, Alberto Aletto, did not get the name by counting the amount of tables (there's actually 25 tables), but rather by honoring the foundation of the United States of America. Aletto, the proud son of Italian immigrants, is a first generation American who truly embraces the idea that the United States is nothing short of a melting-pot of different cultures, bringing with them different styles of cooking and a wide variety of flavors from all over the world. The "13" represents the beginning, the 13 stripes on the Flag and the 13 colonies they represented. The menu is a tribute to how we view American Cuisine today. Our unique and delicious menu, craft cocktails and intimate setting provides for an exceptional dining experience that is as casual as it is elegant. Deemed one of the Ten Best New Restaurants in Broward and Palm Beach Counties, 13 American Table offers succulent dishes prepared to share with a group or savor alone. The seasonal menu includes local produce, fresh fish, and a selection of meats cooked on our charcoal grill- the Josper. Visitors especially love our share plates, like the octopus and eggplant, unique Sang Wiches, daring sauces, sides and From the Garden entrees. We also offer a full bar with specialty cocktails, fine wines, draft, domestic and craft beers. Whether you're stopping by for daily happy hours, a family outing or a couple's dinner, there's something here for everyone to enjoy. From all of us, we look forward to sharing the 13 American Table experience as you dine with us soon.
