'Dress code', walking & taxis to / from restaurants - and area safety

PerfectPalate | Sep 9, 201003:39 PM

Thank you sooo much to the people who have given great dinning ideas for our 6 night visit to SF. Sorry that I couldn't eat at all the places but have covered off many / most.

A couple of quick questions.

What is the typical SF dining out dress code for the type of restaurants that I mention below? Sorry to sound silly but it differs so much between NZ / Australia - Japan - Bali etc. we are about to pack our bags but are unsure what to bring over for a foodie (plus some sites) trip.

Also, how easy is it to get taxis to, and from restaurants? Do they book you a cab - and how far before you leave does this have to be done - can it be done when you finish your meal?

We would rather walk where / when possible - taking into account the 'dress code' issues above. We are staying (for most of our stay) at 198 Haight St (cnr Haight and Laguna). Would love comments about the safety in terms of walking around the following restaurant areas (from where we are staying). I know approx how long it will take - but is it OK to walk around these areas at night?
- Absinthe 398 Hayes
- Foreign Cinema 2534 Mission (thought we might have a roof-top sunset drink at Medjool next door first)
- Commonwealth 2224 Mission
- Flower and Water 2401 Harrison
- Coi 373 Broadway
- Prospect 300 Spear (staying at the Ritz Carlton this night).

Thanks in advance - we can't wait to get to SF on Sunday.
