You can sand or plane it.

As PD stated, sanding or maybe planing is the only way to make the top level. Cracks can be filled but it isn't always wise to do so. Pics might alter our advice some -

btw - welcome to the forums!

If you can post that picture please make sure to also post one of the underside of the table.
Need to see what type of support they used to hold the boards together.
No way would I use a filler to fill the gaps!
What I've done before is fill the gaps with Tite Bond II glue and used pipe clamps to pull it back together, then added 1 X 4 strips of wood to the underside with clearance and counter sunk holes predrilled to hold it all in place.
Make sure to get the extra glue off ASAP to reduce the chance of staining.
