How to dress for Dino

I have reservations with friends Sat evening at Dino and wondered if the dress there is casual, upscale or what. Any recommendations?

  1. Definitely more on the casual side than on the upscale side. You might feel under-dressed in jeans, but you could get away with wearing them.

        Dean, the owner, will be wearing a Hawai'ian shirt, so you needn't be too worried about your outfit.

      2. I actually wore nice dark jeans with a nice shirt and dressier shoes (i.e. the "smart casual" uniform) and didn't even feel like I was getting away with anything. OTOH, if you wanted to dress up more than that, I don't think it would be inappropriate either.

          1. I would say anything goes...but most people there will probably be on the more casual or business casual side. It's more or less a very good neighborhood restaurant so people don't get too dressed up.
