This is a long time establishment in Orleans. The new owners have done a magnificent job refurbishing the building. Sadly, the food is pretty awful. I hope they get a new chef and new menu, but until then, I will not be going again.

I went with a friend and had the flounder piccata. It was light, very tasty, well prepared and just wonderful. The waitress was attentive, and very friendly. I recommend it highly

We appreciate your feedback, please note that our menu was our off-season menu that was limited, but we'll be debuting our new menu right around the corner that I think you'll be very impressed with!

We frequented the BNI twice this week. Brunch at a nearly deserted bar was fine with attentive service. Dinner was a totally different experience. The bar staff on a night that was only moderately crowded were more occupied with chatting up their friends at the...More

There were four of us. Everyone got something different, and each person enjoyed their meal very much. Staff was very friendly and helpful. They have many gluten-free items on their menu which was perfect for one of us.

After reading some of the reviews from last New Years we were hesitant, but decided to jump in. We sat in the dinning area, much less quiet and enjoy an outstanding dinner. I recommend the swordfish chop and prime rib, which my wife and I...More

I am looking for a good place to celebrate a birthday with 15-20 people on Saturday evening, October 24, 2015. Do you have a private (or private-isn) room that can accommodate such a group? How do you handle the menu and prices and wine? Thank you, Sally Lindfors 703-922-1827
