I think the only one who didn't appreciate the "fancy" food was my dad. Rumor has it he ate nachos and hamburgers the entire time LOL Really, there are plenty of options on the menus to please anyone - always a steak dish, chicken, shrimp, etc. My brother is a pretty simple eater, and his FI is a super picky eater - neither of them had complaints. If someone doesn't like the sauces or whatever, just tell them to ask if they can have it more plain. They'll do whatever someone wants if at all possible.
The dress code was one of the weird things - some people really dressed up at night (guys in a tie, ladies in a cute little dress), and others wore jeans, capris and more casual. I was one of the more casual people, and we never, ever had any issues with the dress code being enforced or being asked to leave somewhere. I did follow the very basic dress code, but I ended up having to wear my flip flops most of the time too because some sandals caused blisters - that wasn't mentioned or questioned by any staff.
So I'd say it's really up to you and your guests as to what they'll be comfortable in at dinner. I think Jojo's and La Isla are probably a little more casual for dinner, since they are both outdoors. At lunch though, make sure folks have shirts and shoes - my friend couldn't get into Jojo because she only had a bathing suit top on. she had to borrow a cover up. The pizza place is casual for lunch - bathing suits, whatever seems to be ok. That was true of the Las Olas corner in Casitas 31 too, and they have great lunches!
