The service was fine although when asked about the risotto I was assured it was very good.Figs and other stuff was a poor choice and I should have been told it’s not to everyone’s taste. The bread had raisins and tasted packaged. The menu was limited and pricey. My beer was good. Another pasta dish with pesto was very bland. Overall disappointing meal. The room is lovely visually but for the money there are better places on the UWS.

I always go for lunch here when I am at NYHS. Limited menu, but the food is always good. My current favorite is tuna tartare. Service very professional. It is a little noisy.

the chicken was too salty tonight.
I wish they had vegetables on the plate rather than potatoes.
The fried zucchini was delicious.
The arctic char was very good

Pretty unimpressive. Came here on a Saturday night and should have gotten a red flag when every booking time was available for a reservation. For a Saturday night there were not even 6 tables occupied. It's attached to a museum gift shop or something so the vibe felt super consumer- like. Not a good nyc restaurant vibe.

Food was average, generally. Risotto w lobster had barely any lobster and was not super fresh. Chicken was actually pretty good but was served over grits and roasted grapes that were still on the vine. A bit weird.

Honestly, you're better off walking an avenue over and go somewhere on Amsterdam.

Every time I go to an event at the NY Historical Society, I eat here and then I wonder why I don't eat here more often. The food and service are great. The atmosphere is casual and the prices are reasonable. If you're going to the Museum of Natural History, eating here is a no-brainer. It's right next door.

Even though we are members of the museum, my cousin and I hadn't eaten at Storico for a few years. Past experiences were just so so. Not any more. Everything was delicious and we look forward to many more visits.

Most people were not happy with their dishes (except the fried zucchini strips - delicious). I had the duck, ordered rare/medium rare, and worried at the end whether the rare was really undercooked. The evening also started poorly when two of the four arrived five minutes early, and rather than be seated at one of the many empty four-tops, they were asked to sit in an awkward waiting area for the five minutes it took me and my wife to arrive. When coffee was served at the end of the meal, it was tepid.
Don't know what has happened - was excited to go back, since we had a great meal there two or three years ago, but it has really fallen off its game.

Came to Storico for dinner and was not disappointed! Amazing service from the moment I walked in until the moment I left. The hostess was sweet and sat us promptly, the ambiance is very cozy at Storico—it left quite the impression. Our server was also very kind and attentive. The food and drinks were amazing, overall creating a very positive experience. I will definitely recommend Storico to any/all of my friends who are visiting the area.

Tasteful, delicious food. We come here often as it’s one of the better values on the upper west side. A must try are the zucchini crisps which are truly addictive zucchini fries with a yummy garlic lime aoli dip.

I would give it a 3.5 out of 5 stars.  The ambiance is very inviting with good lighting, a white and bright interior, and a very comfortable noise level.  Our server, Christine was very attentive without being annoying.  While tasty, the food was somewhat disappointing beginning with the bread that was very dry. Two of us ordered the restaurant week Prix Fix and two of us ordered a la carte.  The tuna tower was very tasty with just enough seasoning. The steak with fries was just OK; the fries, while edible were over-salted as was the side of brussels sprouts.  The skate that came with the Prix fix was pretty in presentation but severely lacking in content. Overall the Prix Fix dinner choices were not worth the price.  We ordered the lemon tart for dessert and that was very tasty, as was the chocolate mouse, however, the olive oil cake (more like a cupcake) was truly disappointing.  Too bad, I'm not so sure we will go back.

the restaurant is a fun restaurant in a museum
choices are limited but what is offered is prepared looks and tastes very good
staff seems overwhelmed and inadequately managed as some of the staff appear bored???
wine list very limited
though this was visit probably 5 or 6 over the last several years the clear theme or raison d'etre of the restaurant seems unclear

Disappointed a bit in quality of food and menu choices. Looking fir healthier options such as salads, like when I went there last time. Of course it may be due to day of week.

We had lunch with our 3.5 yr old granddaughter on Friday 3 January. A most pleasant time. Our waiter was so astute in knowing what we needed to keep her involved....he was right there with water in a plastic cup with a lid and straw....a 'special menu' for her (The Children's Menu)....we asked for her food to come a bit before ours,...which it did....he even managed to get her some vanilla ice cream with chocolate drizzle for dessert.
We had a relaxing, child friendly time. I had the pork chop, which was divine although enough for two people....the creamed spinach a triumph! My husband had the duck which he said was superb.
Thanks to all for making our afternoon so delightful and relaxing.

Storico was recommended to me by a few friends when we planned our visit to the NY Historical Society Museum. I'm so glad I listened. Storico is a fantastic restaurant with fantastic food and service. I have a gluten allergy and they were able to accommodate me extremely easy. I highly recommend Storico.

Storico is a little gem, bright, airy and elegant, situated right at the entrance to the NY Historical Society, and right across from the Museum of Natural History, on 77th and Central Park West. The food is well prepared and delicious, with an Italian flavor, and the restaurant is so right for a date or a celebration, or simply to dine out in a lovely but unpretentious place. The food is high quality, and the service is very caring.

We went for 12 noon brunch. The servers were pleasant but not very experienced. They brought our main meal out and tried to fit all the plates on the table even though they hadn't cleared the appetizers plates. They only filled our water glasses once during the entire meal. The food was quite good but everything was COLD when it was delivered to our table, including eggs benedict and the spicy skillet frittata. Disappointing experience, especially when we only come to NYC once each year, during the holidays, to meet the grandparents for brunch. When we arrived at our table at noon, there were two or three long hairs across our table. More than 20" long.
