Dress code for Annabelle's?

I'll be visiting SF and have been invited to dinner at Annabelle's. Just wondering what what sort of attire might be appropriate.... is it a jeans and a nice top kind of place, or more dressy?

  1. I think that's pretty safe, maybe a nice coat. I've never been inside, just walked by a million times. That place always struck me as lots of convention business and sort of an extension to the Marriott across the street. Frankly except for a few places, that works in 90% of SF...even those place wouldn't fail to seat you and it would be more what you feel comfortable in.

    1. I work down the street and have eaten there a few times. Jeans and dressy top are fine. It reminds me of a few old places in NYC....

      The food is good BTW, not exceptional, but good nontheless. I last ate there about 3 weeks ago. Service was very good; I ordered lamb chops, they came a bit more rare than I like (I don't like visible blood!) and sent them back. The server comped the desserts for both me and my guest, tho I was the only one with an issue.

          Not quite,

          For "mentioned in" topics, the Places function looks for an exact match with the name, e.g., "Annabelle's Bar & Bistro". There are other reports where the poster used just "Annabelle's" and aren't i.d.'d by Places.

      2. We recently had a very nice dinner at Annabelle's. It wasn't anything over-the-top creative, but everything was very good and so was the service.
        My partner had duck and I had cod. I intended to write a report, but you know how it is. I have that menu around here someplace.....

          I ate at Annabelle's with a big group a year ago. The food was very good, and the chef was attentive. He improvised a vegan meal that was excellent. Good wine list too.
