    Off the lobby of the Philadelphia Marriott which is attached to the Convention Center. Fresh ingredients, well-prepared. Wonderful flavors with reasonable portions and good prices for the high quality of the food. Only downside is that it is a sports bar, so is noisy. You could pick up the food and the service and drop it into any fine dining establishment. It is very convenient to both hotel guests and the convention center.

    I booked the reservation for Valentines Day, primarily based on the menu I saw online. However, when we got the menu after being seated, it was cut back to fewer selections. I chose the crab cakes which proved to be very tasty. My wife ordered the steak special which she had to send back because it was well past the medium-rare she had requested. Te server was understanding and entered an order for the crab cakes which my wife also enjoyed. The ambiance is stark and a bit tired. Unfortunately, it looked more like an old Holiday Inn than a Marriott.

    This restaurant is in the Marriott, and is near many, many good restaurants in Philly. We ate here for the convenience, as we did not need to leave the hotel and because some booths have TVs and football playoff games were on. The food was respectable and very good, but I would not make it a "destination" if I wasn't staying in the hotel.

    Having just arrived in Philly I grabbed dinner in the hotel (Marriott). Only had the crab soup and Caesar salad, the soup was hardy and good portion of crab - salad was decent as we'll. service was nice - but it is simple dining in a bar type atmosphere. I miss the steak house that used to be there!

    I dined at Thirteen twice during a recent stay at the Philadelphia Marriott. Pairing the wedge salad (quite large for a wedge, plentiful garnishes) with the crab cake (just about perfect) - both appetizers - made for quite a filling meal the first visit and set me up to look forward for the second stop. That was a bit disappointing. The lobster bisque was not very bisque-y - very thick - though nicely hot and with sufficient lobster. The meatloaf was heavy, had a bit too much salt, and needed a sauce to help it down. The fries with cheese should, I think, be avoided. Service was uniformly attentive and very friendly.

    I guess it's what you could expect from a restaurant in a hotel. The food wasn't horrible. It just wasn't all that good. my dish of barbecue chicken tasted like salty, over spiced store bought sauce, which over powered the chicken that was cooked perfectly. The menu was over priced. And our waiter, who actually wasn't bad, seemed to get lost after we were served dinner.

    The only reason to lunch at 13 is to have a quick snack before an envent, that being said, nothing was quick about our lunch at 13. We ordered white wine which was in need of further chilling. The service was distracted, perhaps the server had too many tables to handle. My lunch selection was fine but my companion's soup and 1/2 sandwich was sadly lacking in any inspiration and a bit stingy.

    During our stay in Philadelphia, we have been at this restaurant 5 times. There is a notable difference between the customer service during the day time and in the evening. I would recommend this place for dinner but not lunch and especially, breakfast, unless you are staying at the hotel and are in a rush. There are several places that are cheaper, in very close range of the hotel, and they might actually have wait staff who are actually friendlier and are careful to not rush you through your meal.

    During our stay in Philadelphia, my husband and I ate at Thirteen, with our children for at least four times- once for breakfast, once for lunch and twice for dinner. We have to say that the service there, especially with Jeff as our waiter, made going to this restaurant quite a memorable event. He is an exceptional waiter, very friendly, personable and sweet to our sons. In fact, we thought that all the dinner waiters seemed very friendly and personable. They made the ambiance of the restaurant much more friendly and personable.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 2/22/2013
    Service was ok. The only thing that I had a problem with was the fact that the hostess did not seem to know how to confirm my Open Table reservation. Nor, did she care to. Fortunately, their was a female manager there that had corrected the situation and made sure that I had obtained my points. The main reason that I tried the hotel restaurant, as opposed to something cheaper and with more variety, within walking distance of the hotel was because of Open Table.

    Sorry, but this was the worst hotel dining I've encountered in years. 25 minute wait to order, 20 minute wait for a salad - then 2 minutes later the main course arrived. My husband only had time for a few bites of salad, but said it was so bland he didn't regret having no time to eat it. I was treated to the world's smallest filet mignon, undercooked and over seasoned with a strange combination of spices (there shouldn't have been any!). The side of squash in tomato sauce was the only edible part of the meal. I left with my meal mostly untouched and had much better food and service at the hotel Starbucks.

    Only thing I was disappointed with was the we sight had a different menu. Their wine prices were crazy being the wine person I am. I wanted the ribs but went for the grilled salmon which was fabulous. Everyone wanted my opinion on what to drink so I told them to go for a bar drink. Other than that great place and loved our waiter!

    I reserved a table for six for dinner on a Sunday evening. Note that this restaurant is next to the convention center where a very large convention was underway. When we arrived and we were seated we were told that there was only a bar menu with the explanation that a new menu would begin the next day. Luckily using Open Table I was able to immediately able to book another table across the street.

    Average hotel fare. The maple sugar and cinnamon butter on the warm rolls were the only thing exceptional. The bar in the middle of the restaurant has many TVs tuned to sports so the occasional loud outbursts from over enthusiastic patrons is a definite distraction and annoyance. Several items on the menu were not available. If you don't mind a mediocre restaurant in a sports bar atmosphere, then it's okay. Definitely not the place for a nice and quiet dinner with great food.
