What is the biggest problem with restaurant websites these days? Do you have any egregious examples? How could they be better -- what basics should every restaurant website have?
The biggest thing is that if your restaurant website isn't designed to work an iPhone, iPad, or other mobile devices, you hate your customers.
In part, that means no Flash — which is officially dead for all mobile devices as of the other day. A site I can think of offhand is Basta Pasta — a restaurant I adore — but their site is an all-Flash atrocity.
And in part that means having a clean design that works on computers and mobile. People want to know where the restaurant is located; when it's open; what's on the menu. That's all.
