We were visiting the Historical Society of NY and decided to eat on site. We got there as the dinner session was beginning at 5 PM on a Friday. It was empty but we had reservations as we were advised. We were seated and the service was outstanding. Very nice, attentive, friendly. I had skirt steak with potatoes . I ordered to to be medium and it was a bit chewy. Maybe it needed to cook a little more but the potatoes were very good as were the vegetables. I had a lovely glass of red wine. My friend had scallops and sparkling water. He said it was very good. I don't think I would seek the restaurant out if I wasn't visiting the Society because there are many good places to eat in the area. But if you're already there, it's a good place to stop and grab a bite.
The management was surly and rude. Mediocre all around
Comfortable and delicious and adjoined to the New York Historical Society Museum - which is relatively small and manageable for an hour’s visit - and across the street from the Museum of Natural History that you could spend a week gawking at.
Good appetizers, small main course portions, desserts particularly twee: ours was a "deconstructed" tiramisu, which meant a couple of tiny logs of ice cream, with a couple of pieces of chocolate and tiny bricks of sponge cake thrown around the plate. The pork cheeks in the pasta were three or four bacon-like specks. Pretty restaurant, though!
Good food, pleasant atmosphere, very good service. A lovely experience.
Spot on in terms of freshness, execution, presentation, and TASTE.
Love Storico. Always dependable. Sam is an excellent waiter!
i would like more options from the lunch menu i.e. cod or lobster club sandwich
Attractive and friendly, sleek space, very nice food and wine, affordable
Our server was extremely nice and very attentive - he rates 5 stars. Somehow our first course was delayed and he couldn't have been nicer about it. Then the manager comped us an extra appetizer. They were so nice about it that we couldn't be annoyed.
This time the service was painfully slow. We had a reservation.
Need more wait staff.
Had a wonderful meal with friends while at the museum. will be back again.
For a light, delicious meal, while exploring the New York Historical Society or something close by, this small, elegant eatery offering fine food and myriad wine will more than fill the bill. The wait staff is attentive, food comes in a timely fashion, and there was nothing upon which to complain.
Storico Is outstanding in every way. The food was imaginative, beautifully presented and marvelously delicious.
The light and airy room gives off the most positive of vibes, all white and yellow, with beautifully decorated porcelain plates filling the shelves surrounding three sides of this wonderful, very high ceiling room. The 4th side is a large window.
I shared the Steak Tartar with my daughter. It was served in half a marrow bone, garnished with a sunnyside up quail egg and a tiny, marrow filled, crouton. Exquisite. Then I had glazed sea scallops garnished with quail eggs and served with wedges of pork belly. My daughter had Hanger steak, creative broccoli variations and crispy cubes of layered potatoes. Our divine desert was a deconstructed Tiaramisu composed of lipstick shaped tiaramisu ice cream, difficult to describe lady fingers, and cream. Everything was absolutely delicious.
My daughter was visiting me and we ate in many different restaurants this past week. None could compare with Storico. In addition the prices are comparable to many of the better restaurants. As I am a member of the excellent NY Historical Society I received a 10% discount. This made the bill most reasonable. We are returning for Brunch tomorrow. I think it 5 stars in every department.
We went for brunch on the Sunday of Columbus day weekend, so the restaurant was likely a bit noisier and the service slower with the crowd. Nevertheless, it is a beautiful, bright, high ceilinged room which is a pleasure and the staff and food are excellent (even if the gnocchi was a bit salty :) ). Whether or not you are going to the Historical Society, it is warmly recommended.
This has easily become one of my favorite neighborhood brunch spots. The food is fantastic and the service is always wonderful. Definitely recommend. Not to mention- it’s so pretty inside!
Fantastic service and scrumptious food! It's my favorite place to catch up with friends and family.
After many meals at Storico, they have changed the menu and chef and the results were really disappointing. The salmon that I ordered multiple times before, became 5 individually wrapped chunks of salmon - it looked and felt like an appetizer! There wasn't enough food to fit the plate. The salad we split, in the past, was composed of enough food to split - this was not enough for two people.The service and ambiance are always excellent.
This restaurant in The NY Historical Museum is very good. It is physically appealing, and the food is very good. I would recommend having a meal here especially if you were visiting the museum, but also if you were in the neighborhood.
I have eaten here before and liked it very much.
Somehow, in the last month they closed for some "renovation"
Place looks exactly the same. The service was terrible.
Took time for everything - water, attention - given the check before we actually ever had our meal! Oh - took about 45 minutes for our food to come.
Not exciting and very pricey for what we had.
I'm so disappointed.
Can't say enough about this under appreciated restaurant and the wonderful meals the new chef is delivering. Had the best roast suckling pig I've ever eaten. Just terrific!
Love the new menu and the reasonable prices. Great neighborhood restaurant.
Wishing new chef well; staff most accommodating; not quite sure in which direction menu going, but overall good.
What a shame! Back when this was a Stephen Starr restaurant, it was one of our favorites. After a change of management and kitchen staff, the food went downhill and we sadly stopped going. We were heartened by recent upticks in Open Table reviews (which had dropped when the last chef came aboard), so gave it a try a couple of nights ago with high hopes. It turns out, they had a new interim chef, modified decor (less appealing, though subtly so, than the original), and a new menu as of a few days earlier. Unfortunately, it was a terrible dinner and we are unlikely to go back until/unless there are dramatic changes. The Caesar salad was so lightly dressed as to be practically naked, the chicken-- the first two bites of which were delicious-- turned out to be not just undercooked but raw except for the very outermost portion, and our server seemed clueless (when asked how the chicken was prepared, he'd assured us, without irony, that they lived happy lives and were "grass-fed," and while he insisted on having the kitchen cook another chicken, he seemed unconcerned that it was not ready by the time we were ready to pay the bill. Overall, the staff seemed pleasant but indifferent and inadequately trained, and the food left a lot to be desired. Too bad because the space and location are great.
The new chef and new menu are pretty disappointing. Tiny portions and descriptions that are not accurate. Both the tuna and the hanger steak for example are called mains, but arranged like appetizer bites. Clever salads but small portions. Dessert is overreaching, one item listed as a sundae banana split, was a chocolate shell with 2 tsps of crumbled filling. The apple thing looks beautiful, like something out of Disney but has very little flavor.
This was a lovely, reliable place when friends wanted to talk over good food so I hope they improve the cuisine.
We went to have prix fixe lunch pursuant to website offering. Prix fixe no longer exists. Staff was responsive and helpful and rose to the occasion. Hope the website is corrected soon.
We had a nice lunch while at the NY Historical Society. We enjoyed the antipasto appetizer. The food was nicely presented. We had to ask for bread. The restaurant does not put it on the table without being asked.
I think the menu had changed since I last ate there back last spring. Nevertheless the food was good, although you have a choice of ordering a large or small portion of the entrees; I opted for the small one but wished afterwards I had chosen the larger one. The service was good!
Never disappoints - the dining room is lovely with an experienced wait staff, eager to give room for conversation, but be alert to our needs without having to request it. The food selection is limited for lunch, but each dish is well prepared and very tasty
Loved it. would recommend and go back anytime. Brunch was excellent. Every dish that passed our table looked delicious.
AC was too strong. The food was well enough prepared, but the frigid temperature of the room ruined our pleasure. Indifference of the staff made it worse. Beneath the glitz, these people are amateurs.
Storico serves terrific food both at lunch and at dinner. Well worth going just for the dining, but the NY Historical Society is a must visit for anyone who doesn't know it's amazing attributes. With respect to the cuisine, it is Italian driven, but there's something for everyone, including the little ones.
The food was very good, as always, but there was an extremely long delay between appetizer and entree.
While in a great location as part of. Wonderful museum, the restaurant is so noisy that all you want to do is leave. They should invest in a consultant to advise them how to reduce the noise level without the need for major construction or expense. Frankly, we are the simplest thing and went to their coffee shop inside the gift store for coffee .
Great pasta as always
Good service !
Kitchen and wait staff accommodate special diet needs
Lovely staff. Very good food. Beautiful room. Expensive and a somewhat limited menu.

We went there for brunch a couple Sundays ago and were served a fruit plate that contained several cherries that had gray-white fuzzy mold growing on them. After we pointed out the problem, they brought out a second plate (manager said "I'll prepare it myself."). Well, the second plate contained several strawberries with fungus on them (large black, sunken spots). After pointing out the issue again, they asked if we wanted the rest of the fruit from the same plate! Their big concession was to take the cost of the fruit plate off the bill.
We are not unreasonable people and don't expect perfect fruit. What we do expect is to not be served ROTTING fruit. Even then, we understand that mistakes can occur. However, the dismissive way in which the situation was handled was just as appalling as the rotting fruit itself. After the initial apology, they just didn't seem to care that much about what should have been an absolutely mortifying situation. We live nearby and are frequently at the Museum of Natural History right across the street. We had been wanting to try Storico for a while and went in there hoping to be regular customers. Instead, we won't ever be back.
Always lovely. Appetizers up to usual standard pasta courses too buttery and heavy.
A splendid brunch spot after visiting the New-York Historical Society's exhibitions. Charming decor. Delicious food -- my daughter's vegetarian hash was outstanding, and my tagliatelle with carbonara utterly decadent. Perfect latte. Very good service by our server, who did not rush us out after we ate. The hostess could feign interest in customers, make eye contact, etc., but otherwise, all was first-rate. I look forward to returning.
Fresh ingredients. Pasta dishes are tasty; interesting combinations. The lobster in shells with a light butter sauce was delicious and unusual. Scrambled eggs were cooked just the way we requested. Very accommodating.
