Great venue, bright space for casual dining. We had brunch. Baked eggs and Bircher muesli are excellent. Good kids menu.
I was particularly impressed by the staff's care for a nearby disabled patron, dining with his family. When water was spilled, copious napkins appeared almost instantly, and the mop-up was accomplished with no fuss. A later choking episode was similarly handled smoothly. When we left the restaurant, the patron and his family were still there, apparently enjoying fully the opportunity to eat out. It was just as it should have been.
I've enjoyed Storico in the past and live around the corner and will continue to go there every once in a while. But only during non-peak moments. When they are crowded they are overwhelmed and the beautiful plates that decorate the room bounce the sound around so it is noisy. The experience is very different on a sleepy afternoon or early dinner during a weekday. The food is always delicious. Also, I sat next to the door and in spite of asking someone to manage the cold gusts, the wind went through me every moment or so and as my mother predicted, I woke up with a sore throat and a chill the next day. Sit further inside next time on a quiet day and you'll see me.
menu should be expanded
too much comfortand fried food
The good is dependably good. The service is often slow when they are crowded and it can get noisy
The best thing about Storico was our waiter Sam who oversaw our meal, gave us recommendations on cook times, and safe alternatives based on my daughters food allergies. Least appealing is the dinner value. Yes the presentation is artful, but the prices are too high for a suburbanite who might expect the whole bronzino, not the half filet for dinner price. So I recommend this for lunch not dinner.
It’s a pretty restaurant and conveniently located near Central Park and other attractions, but the food was mediocre and the wait for the food was exceedingly long. For the price, I would not recommend it.
wonderful restaurant in the New York Historical Society with an outside entrance to accommodate dining when the NYHS is closed. the food is excellent - the service attentive and warm - fresh local ingredients and freshly prepared lemonade, drinks, and a lovely setting make this a very good place to come.
The services we the best I've experienced in a comparably priced restaurant. Great coffee. Difficult to find but worth it.
Two appetizers - the Jerusalem artichokes and the fried zucchini strips - were great. Melting texture on the sunchokes, though not everyone was thrilled by the bagna cauda. Very good batter on the zucchini, very well fried. Main courses didn't fare so well - poor pasta, salty fish, food not cooked to order. The managment was very responsive. Bottom line: you go here for one reason only - you are going to an exhibit in the historical society. There, I strongly recommend the Tiffany lamps. The exhibit is permanent, beautifully displayed, interactive (you can design the colors in a lamp), and very instructive. Who knew that Clara Driscoll was the main designer of so many Tiffany lamps? Well, the people at the historical society know and inform the rest of us. They should be called Driscoll lamps. There's a fascinating gender aspect as well as an artistic aspect.
Lunch with family. Efficient service and tasty food.
Outstanding service by ‘Lucky.’ Our Server, courteous, informative, engaging and smart.
Dining superb, raddixchio salad., branzino, imaginatively and carefully prepared. Felt fresh and intriguing.
All enjoyed their meals from Salads to pasta to scallops and the Osobuco. Very pleasant bright surroundings and friendly and efficient service from all members of the team.
Food always very good. Such juicy chicken! Service fantastic and warm. Music choice not quite matching the style of the place we thought. Maybe less commercial pop, more jazz or something more classic.
Had a reservation. Place was mostly empty. We asked for a specific empty table. Hostess said that it was reserved. But when we departed 90 minutes later it had never been occupied and restaurant was still mostly empty. Mark that up to a poor hostess. Still an excellent meal and evening.
No need to see art in an empty stomach! We chose this venue because we only had an hour between the exhibits at the Historical Society and the 7pm lecture there. We were delightfully surprised by the selection, service and scallops. Thanks for one of our best meals in Manhattan—and that’s saying something!
We love this restaurant for occasions that take us to the upper west side. Nice light and bright facility, pleasant staff and good food, too.
Bad ambiance, ordinery service, présentation of plate... simple, the price was expensive for that☹️
Great food. Horrible service. You will sit unattended for a looooooong timry
The Hostess (Michele) was rude and clueless, and ruined our dining experience. I don't expect to ever dine there again.
Nice atmosphere, quick and casual. Perfect if you are visiting the museums close by.
Depending on table location, seating can be tight. Food is very good. Great lunch or afternoon tea place. Quiet and good for conversation.
This is a very nice place to meet friends for a casual lunch. Food is excellent and the ambiance is contemporary, bright and clean. The menu is not big but there are always some delicious alternatives from salads to pasta to a great burger and fries.
My only complaint is that the noise level makes conversation difficult. It’s not “energetic; it’s deafening!
Too bad because the place is otherwise very good.
Ambiance was fine. I added in my reservations that it was a birthday of one of our group and then reminded the hostess and nothing happened, despite the fact that there were only 10 people in the restaurant
Always a great place to eat: friendly, efficient, good food.
Wonderful restaurant after Viking the NY Historical Society.
We love this place. Lovely decor. Very attentive staff. Good food. The whole package.
Great restaurant after visiting the NY Historical museum or Natural History Museum. especially after a lecture! Drinks, food, ease very important instead of running around looking for restaurant.
I wanted to like the restaurant, but the food was just mediocre. Pleasant surrounding, nice service but food was subpar. We all had pasta--the one with eggplant was heavy and bland at same time. I had spaghetti with crab, and it was overcooked and just odd. Pasta shouldn't be that difficult.
On the plus side: cocktails were good, so go there for drinks and skip the food!
great brunch. love the decor. bright cheerful pretty place. nice food presentation too.
I love Storico for myself and my recent visit was with my brother visiting from Washington State. He had a great time treating himself to the Fish & Chips. Our waiter was amazing. We will be back for more!
I have been to this restaurant several times and liked it. The dining room is beautiful, light, and airy. However, it was a bad day last time. My companion's pasta tasted synthetic and my fish and chips batter lacked any crispness. There may have been a hush puppy included, but I couldn't tell. Was it just a ball of deep-fried batter? The coffee was bitter, too. Then one of the waiters slipped in the kitchen area and dropped a whole tray of food. The tension from that point was palpable. The problem with an open kitchen is that if something goes wrong there, the whole place knows it.
I have eaten at Storico many times, and it's always been top notch. The fish and chips this time, though, outdid any other meal--it was great! The reason I gave only 4 stars is that my companion had to send her hamburger back because it wasn't cooked to medium, as she requested. But she did get another, fresh one, which was fine.
Noise so totally overpowering, no ability at all for conversation. Service sloppy. Food odd. Will never return, just attend the museum lecture and go elsewhere for dinner.
Great stop for lunch before visiting the museum.
Beautiful, light, airy and elegant dining room with a happy, buzzy atmosphere. Well composed menu with freshly cooked dishes. The duck risotto is amazing! Very large portions - save space or share pudding.
Fantastic service - friendly and professional: we were made to feel special.
Expensive by UK standards but well worth it for the experience ($140/£110 for 1 risotto, 1 salad, 2 glasses Prosecco, av. bottle of rose wine, 1 pudding 1 coffee excluding the tip)
Had to wait for a table way beyond the reservation time and the initial service was very slow. After the waiter finally came things moved very promptly
Great food and located just off Central Park. A perfect combination!
This is one of our favorite go to restaurants for a bite to eat.
Good food, reasonably comfortable seating, good service, somewhat noisier than ideal. Would go again.
Restaurant was fine
