    The main entree was great. I had the lamb. The sides (sweet potatos and calamari) was not good at all. The potatoes were not sweet just boiled with marshmallows on top. No flavor! The calamari was really dried out and then fried. The dish came with peppers and they looked just like the calamari, however the portions were off. I had 5 peppers for every 1 piece of actual calamari. The chef did make me some to go and attempted to fix the portion size though, so I gave it one extra star.

    I was initially referred here by a friend stating their food was really good! First I pull up to the restaurant hoping to valet park and I was told by the valet attendant that valet parking was $60 and I should go across the street for $20 parking. Second I had an 8:00p reservation and was not seated until 8:20. Third as soon as me and my husband was approached by the server he wanted to know our drink and food order and it just made me feel kind of rushed. Fourth thing when I received my food which was the teriyaki glazed salmon the salmon was warm and the rice was cold. I was able to voice my concern to the server and he provided me with a new meal. Fifth thing after I received my bill I was charged $16 for a glass of wine that said $10 on the menu. Lastly, I was never asked what we were celebrating, which is weird because OpenTable asks this and also the restaurant when confirming reservation. I wanted to really support this establishment but I will not be returning.

    Really enjoyed the food at thirteen! Had an amazing time and would definitely come back! Have already recommended the pasta to multiple people! I do wish there was a smaller portion of steak! I am usually full off of an 6 or 8 oz! Loved the vibes and the ambiance!

    We had a great time celebrating our 5th anniversary at Thirteen. Our hostess Lauren took care of us for the evening answering questions about the menu as well as giving suggestions. She was extremely helpful. The food was delicious. My wife got the salmon and I got the lamb chops. Make sure you try the Lobster mac n cheese eggrolls they are amazing. Will definitely be coming back and hopefully Lauren will be the one to assist us again as her service was superb!

    A little mixup upon arriving, we were skipped & marked as partially arrived when clearly my date & I walked in together. Very weird, but we were seated once I brought it to the hosts attention. Our waiter was great, so that made the experience better. Drinks were good. Food was great. I had the salmon & crab fried rice. My date had the lamb chops which I tried & they were goood! I would visit here again. Tried it for HRW.

    It was a birthday event and the wait time was ridiculous we got there @8 didn’t get our food til almost 10-10:30. Also my food was wayyyyy over cooked. Overall i didn’t enjoy the experience and the place is way overhyped. Barley have food options to choose from the menu. And the noise level was wayyy to loud in the dining area for it to be “ business “

    I’ll start with the waiter he was nice and had a great attitude and presence. The server not so pleasant no smile no nothing just placed food with a stone face and left. Food mediocre at best. Philly cheesesteak egg rolls were editable but nothing to brag on had much better. Teriyaki Salmon and Crab fried rice the salmon was cooked excellent the crab fried rice the crab in the rice was dry so maybe over cooked, the rice it self had no flavor. The flaming mai tai I expected a mai tai to be on the sweeter side it was not tasted more like a margarita. I had high expectations but was sadly let down. The manager did take the food off my ticket being I didn’t eat or enjoy it I only ate half the egg roll and she charged me for that but offered me a dessert I didn’t accept I explained I would prefer she took off the egg roll being she clearly saw half of it remained on the table but she did not. She took off another guest in the party appetizer whom ate their appetizer and enjoyed it. The other guest also sent their food back one pork chop was over cooked and the other shrimps were undercooked. Overall it wasn’t a pleasant dining experience and I don’t think I will visit again.

    It was our first time dining at this establishment we were so excited we got this tip on trying this place from TikTok and it didn’t disappoint. Our server Devon was amazing and very knowledgeable. The vibe was very much giving party scene but on the other side the vibe was very much chill elegant and nothing I expected but enjoyed. The only thing that was a downside for me besides a limited menu was how long it took for the food to come out but overall it was a great experience and I was glad to have found this place.

    I guess I’m getting old. The food was ok. The crowd is more for young adults who are still enjoying life out . It’s definitely not for a quiet dinner type guy. But I would say overall the place is nice and service was good

    Very okay. Weird drink policies (one drink at a time- I had to chug my sip of wine to have another glass). The Resturant week menu wasn’t what was offered at the restaurant so I ordered from the menu and had the most underwhelming lamb chops ever.

    $20 dollars to valet park my car in the parking lot directly next to the restaurant gave me a hole in the wall club vibe. Our waiter was working a large Birthday party, so my wife and I were and afterthought. Clearly put on my reservation we were celebrating our anniversary and it was not acknowledged. The table next to us had an awesome waiter and I wish he was ours. Biggest turnoff was the automatic gratuity for a party of 2 people. Things like this should be clearly visible before you order or on the restaurant's website. I almost forgot, the restaurant does not have a website. So we paid automatic gratuity for poor service from our waiter because she truly was busy with a large party. Food was good.

    Our waitress Lauren was amazing! She provided great recommendations and stellar service. We really enjoyed our dinner and will return. It was also awesome to have drinks in the bar on the other side of the restaurant after dinner. The bartenders there too were amazing. Gabby was very nice. Highly recommend! The lobster mac and cheese egg rolls, lamb chops, teriyaki salmon, and drinks were top tier!

    It was overall really good. Only thing is we waited just about 10 minutes for a server to finally come to the table. Being a server in the past I could tell something was up so I decided against complaining to the manager. Food was fresh and delicious. The lobster Mac and cheese egg roles and the Pineapple jerk tai wings were fire and fresh. Although the drinks were amazing, they came out slower than they needed to be with hardly anyone in the restaurant. I can imagine the delay when it’s busy. Experience was a 8-9/10 and that’s coming from two critics so that’s a great rating. They just need to fix the timing of everything for sure.

    Experience was great! Made a reservation to celebrate a birthday and got to visit the restaurant during Houston restaurant week so we tried the three course meal. Our waitress was super nice and very attentive! The reservation was later in the evening so the noise level was pretty moderate but quiet down as the night went on. The food and drinks were really good! Will definitely be coming back to dine again

    We were celebrating a birthday that we mentioned and still it was never recognized. I have been several times and I keep returning because of the service and food but this visit was a lot louder than my other visits. This didn’t take away from my service just more hollering. But overall food was amazing value of god even more better and even though drink prices are expensive the drinks are made with perfection. Yes I will return
