Note:  for food descriptions, the wording is specific -- "smoked" is not the same as "grilled", and "spicy" is not the same as "hot" in regard to preferences or dislikes.  The menu changes, and I don't know the frequency.  There may be a specific menu for each day of the week, or it may be a random daily selection.  Portia Hot Pot is both Hot and Spicy.  If they say they want a particular dish, that takes precedence over their normal likes/dislikes. Use preferences to fill out unspecified portions of the meal.  6 items seems to be optimal, and you may order more than one thing from a section to "add in favorites."
Albert:  Likes hot and spicy only.  Dislikes ice cream.
Alice:  Likes Bamboo Papaya w/ Egg-on-Top.  Dislikes sweets.
Antoine:  Likes Bamboo Papaya w/ Egg-on-Top, likes veggies.

Lucy:  Likes Coffee.  Dislikes meat (vegetarian)
Mars:  Dislikes spicy.
Martha:  Likes Baked Rice w/ Coconut Chicken.  Dislikes Red Tea.
Mei:  Likes ice cream. Dislikes raw veggies.
Merlin:  Dislikes rice.
Nora:  Likes Sauteed Sweet and Sour Tenderloin, likes Rainbow Lemonade.  Dislikes Holly Tea, dislikes coffee, dislikes any fish.
Oaks:  Dislikes Holly Tea, dislikes bitter.
Paulie:  Likes hot and spicy.  Dislikes tea.
Petra:  Likes Rainbow Lemonade.  Dislikes meat, dislikes salty.
Phyllis:  Likes Milk Scented Tea, likes dessert.  Dislikes smoked food, dislikes spicy food, dislikes rice.
Presley:  Likes Red Tea, likes seafood.  Disikes smoked food.

Sam:  Likes rice.  Dislikes noodles, dislikes bitter, dislikes coffee.
Sonia:  Dislikes rice, dislikes tea.
Tody:  Likes fish and seafood.  Dislikes spicy food.

Many birthdays were changed in update 3.70.  After checking other plays, it seems to be a consistent change, and not random.  I am only including the ones that I have uncovered in v3.71.
All Birthday Gifts are 2x value for remembering their birthday (another good time to splurge).
Month One          Month Two          Month Three        Month Four

Both Alice and Lucy love the Crystal Necklace (made with blue crystals and cocoon), it gives +20 relationship points.

It looks like a lot of info for Gust is missing. Have there been any more discoveries for gift preferences, food, and birthdays?

unfortunately, I didn't get around to "dating" him.  There has also been a major change to dating in 4.0... you can no longer ask a person's gifting preference on a play date.  It has to be a romantic date.  That is only available if you confess, and there are problems if you confess to more than one person.  That makes discovery a lot more difficult now.  We will have to rely on each other for info.

Quck note, however, there is a Wikia being developed for the game, and there may be more information there.  I will check there and add notes to this post if it gets posted there first.
