Can I Chill at Porsensa?

psawce | | Feb 28, 2011 06:36 PM

What's the vibe at Porsena? Can anybody who's been answer the following questions? Is there a bar? Do people eat at it? What's the overall vibe like? Upscale? Quick and casual? My SO and I usually choose restaurants where we can eat at the bar. I guess we just think this is a little more fun. We can chat for a while and go at our own pace and eat when we get hungry. Although I've heard great things about the food, for some reason I'm thinking Porsena is the kind of place were you get in and out (maybe like Frank or something like that) rather than a place where you can relax and spend the evening with good food and a good atmosphere.

Any feedback on this issue would great. Thanks y'all!
