    Nice spot seemingly unknown to those other than regulars. Wonderful place to look out of the window and see so much greenery from the trees around the museum of Natural History. I love the white cabinets going up to a very high ceiling filled with beautiful pieces of china. Food, although a limited menu, was VERY good and well prepared. Pleasant staff and knowledgeable bar tender. Overall a very pleasant experience.

    VERY PECULIAR SERVICE!!!!!! I could not understand why the staff was so inattentive in a half full restaurant. They are not serious. It’s a pity since it is a beautiful room. I love going there but it’s always weird and disappointing. What’s the deal?

    Storico is not the same place it used to be. The food is as bland as the new decor. The ambience is depressing like the colors of the furniture. I had a very expensive sandwich that tasted like paper. The service was mediocre. We asked for two camomile teas and the waiter said they only had one. I asked if he could possible get one from the coffee shop just opposite of Storico and he said maybe but never got back to us about it or offered an alternative. I am sad to see Storico changed. It used to be such a nice place to go to !

    The Food was the only good thing about our Dinner. It was well prepared even though the menu is just mediocre. The dessert option was ridiculous: We got 6 macarons for two people. The staff was not motivated. No one asked if everything was okay with the food we got or if we wanted another drink. We felt prejudiced because we were the youngest guests in the room. First we got the information about the fixed menu and its price, which we knew because we made a reservation. This made the impression, that the staff didn’t feel like we could afford the Dinner. Second thing was, when we only wanted sparkling water with our food (we don’t drink alcohol) the staff seemed to loose interest in us as customers and from then on we only got served our food but no other service. It was also very cold in the Restaurant.

    It was as if every one was doing their job for the first time. Incredible delays between courses. No refills on water. Waitress billed us double! Took 30 minutes to get a glass of wine and the place was 3/4 empty! Extraordinarily amateurish. Will never go back. Saturday night is a prix fixe, $60 for only 4 entree options.

    The menu is ordinary with little selecction especially in the wines. The decor is very drab and cold. The wait staff looked sloppy. For the pre fixe dinner there was an obligatory 25% tip added. I do not recommend.

    We had lunch at Storico before seeing an exhibit at the museum. The setting is delightful - high ceilings, lots of windows, hardwood floors, simple white painted and light wood furnishings, with walls lined with shelves of white dishware. And an open kitchen. Service was almost perfect. Although the latte I ordered with dessert took 25 minutes to serve so they didn’t charge for it. The menu is small but satisfying. Familiar favorites prepared so artfully and skillfully they were elevated to higher level. I had the mushroom lasagna and my husband had the cheeseburger and fries. We shared a Caesar salad and the olive oil cake for dessert. The cake was lightly iced and there was an orange citrus drizzle on the plate. Sublime. I will only say that the portions except for dessert were a bit modest and prices were not. We were satisfied but I could see some people taking exception to that.

    Perfect for a midday museum break. Overpriced for delicious small portion. Salmon as a bit fishy. Room is beautiful and at. 2 pm on a Friday it was pretty empty which was great in this covid era. Food was warm but not hot.
