Screenshot of Aquarius Seafood Restaurant, from the squarespace restaurant websites collection.

Aquarius Restaurant is a high-end seafood and grill venue situated on the picturesque banks of the Georges River. Offering both lunch and dinner options, it promises a delectable experience for seafood lovers.

The website employs a minimalist yet effective design, emphasizing visual aesthetics. The monochromatic color palette with hints of gold exudes luxury, while high-resolution images of their seafood dishes stimulate appetite. The layout is intuitively structured, with clear menu options and booking information easily accessible.

Screenshot of Tacos Poncitlan, from the squarespace restaurant websites collection.

Tacos Poncitlan combines Mexican flavors with Poncitlan cooking style. Their recipes, honed over 38 years, are a blend of cross-border family traditions and ingredients, offering a unique taste experience​. Obviously, Tacos are their main thing, but they also make burritos, quesadillas, and nachos.

From what I can see on the website, their tacos are delicious! And that, I guess, is a testament to the website getting the job done.

The website has it all: detailed menus, great branding with all the taco-styled buttons and yellow colors, an online ordering system, a contact form for catering, an embedded map + address information at the right place, etc.

But it’s their photos at every corner of the website that makes the mouth water — you can’t escape them: the homepage, the menu page, the ‘About’ page, even the ‘Catering’ page, and of course the gallery has well-shot photos…lots of them. You’d think that’d be overwhelming, but nope — every page and photo pulls you to visit the place!

One minor issue I found: The categories ‘Tacos,’ ‘Breakfast,’ and ‘Plate’ under the ‘Our Menu’ section at the top of the homepage seem clickable but aren’t. Instead, there’s a “See Full Menu” button below it. Ideally, if something seems clickable, it should be.

Screenshot of King Restaurant, from the squarespace restaurant websites collection.

Located on King Street in New York City, the King Restaurant features a casual vibe with a menu reflecting flavors of Italy and France. The menu changes daily, and they focus on making customers feel right at home.

The King website immediately communicates an upscale, chic, and urban dining experience. The prominently featured interior shot showcases a well-lit, spacious bar area, indicating a modern and comfortable ambiance.

The website is easy to navigate, with clear sections for menus, reservations, shops, and celebrations. Important information such as location and hours is marked.

Screenshot of Meals by Genet, from the squarespace restaurant websites collection.

Located in LA’s ‘Little Ethiopia’, Meals by Genet offers a tantalizing taste of traditional Ethiopian cuisine.

The website is characterized by its warm, inviting feel with a combination of authentic visuals and a simple layout. Highlighted by Genet’s personal touch showcased in the imagery, the design is clean, placing emphasis on the culinary journey.

The interactive “Ready to order?” prompt at the bottom beckons users to engage, emphasizing user-friendly navigation and functionality.

Screenshot of Rare Bird Rooftop Bar, from the squarespace restaurant websites collection.

The Rare Bird Rooftop Bar currently has two locations, one in Nashville and the other in Denver. Both boast a trendy atmosphere with beautiful scenery and delicious menu.

The restaurant has a modern, upscale design with a chic rooftop bar. High-quality images of drinks and food create visual appeal, and warm colors create a cozy atmosphere. Visitors can easily find locations, contact information, hours, and the menu.

Screenshot of Streetbird, from the squarespace restaurant websites collection.

Streetbird is a vibrant and fun establishment focusing on flavorful chicken dishes. The Ethiopian-Swedish, James Beard Award-winning Chef Marcus Samuelsson is the face of this establishment. The website excellently showcases him alongside food wherever it can, including the hero section.

Besides, the site has a bold and lively design, utilizing strong contrasting colors and playful graphics. The emphasis is on creating a strong brand identity, reflected in the merchandise and energetic visuals.

Steelbird has many locations, and you can visit the website of each from the links in the ‘locations’ section of this website. Similarly, the Marcus Samuelsson Group has many restaurants, and all websites’ footers link to all other establishments, which is good for both discovery and SEO.

Screenshot of Bandits, from the squarespace restaurant websites collection.

Bandits is a restaurant and bar located in New York. It prides itself on cold beer and popular cocktails complete with traditional bar food.

Screenshot of Fat Choy, from the squarespace restaurant websites collection.

Cafecito is a family-owned coffee house at The Trailhead. They serve Italian-style coffee drinks, Argentinian tea (called Mate), and other Armenian, Argentinian & Italian dishes.

The café’s website is both beautiful and functional. On the design end, it features excellent food photography, a soothing color palette, and nice font. On the functional side, the site has clear navigation, proper CTAs, and well-structured pages.

Screenshot of Blue Dog, from the squarespace restaurant websites collection.

Blue Dog’s website is quite obvious (obvious = user-friendly). The homepage gives three options: Eat, Drink, and Visit. ‘Eat’ will show the food menu, ‘Drink’ opens the drinks menu page, and ‘Visit’ gets you to the directions & timings page. The on-hover background image change also helps with the obviousness.

The obviousness is worth having for any website, including your restaurant website, but it’s the gallery page of Blue Dog that’s the most inspirational. It has well-shot images showcased in a big, two-column layout—something you might want to consider for your site:

Screenshot of Dhamaka, from the squarespace restaurant websites collection.

Dhamaka is a culinary delight offering an explosive taste of Indian dishes. Known for its unapologetic and authentic flavors, the restaurant is a journey through the diverse landscapes of India through food.

It’s so popular that you must reserve your table days in advance, especially for some specialty items. Therefore, the emphasis on the Resy “Book Now” button is evident.

On the design side, the website has an explosive red palette, reflecting the fiery essence of the restaurant’s dishes. The seamless layout beautifully showcases their dishes above the fold. Next in the visual hierarchy are their menus for brunch, dinner, beverages, and desserts. And last is an impressive display of accolades from reputed publications (like #1 Restaurant of 2021 in The New York Times Top 10 New Restaurants of 2021).

All in all, it seems like a one-page website that does its job.

Screenshot of Mighty Fine Burgers, from the squarespace restaurant websites collection.

Mighty Fine is a vibrant burger joint that prides itself on offering top-notch burgers, sandwiches, and shakes. Their ethos revolves around the distinction between merely good and genuinely “mighty fine” food.

The website utilizes crisp, clear photos to showcase its food and ambiance. The dominant burger image immediately grabs attention, while photos of their locations and branded items add a touch of authenticity and brand personality. The color scheme of red, white, and yellow echoes the classic fast-food ambiance, while modern functionalities like online ordering and feedback forms prioritize user convenience.

While rooted in Mediterranean flavors, Chef Cassie adds a unique twist based on her diverse culinary encounters, aiming for a blend of the familiar and novel in their offerings​.

A slideshow of full-screen photos in the hero section beautifully showcases the vibe, culture, and food of Sarma. The navigation menu options are also on-brand.

Moreover, the website has an excellent ‘Our Team’ section, showcasing their experienced chefs. Plus, the usual - reservation feature, gift cards, location/address, contact information, and obviously their menu…

…though, this website shows the menu a bit differently than most. You have to toggle the menu open—which has both upside (space saving) and downside (could be a bit confusing):

Screenshot of Fat Cow, from the squarespace restaurant websites collection.

Fat Cow offers an exquisite Japanese Wagyu dining experience, transporting flavors directly from the atelier to your table.

The website design radiates a luxurious ambiance with its deep, moody tones and a strikingly vivid image of a gourmet dish. The minimalistic approach, with subtle navigation and elegant typography, puts culinary artistry in the spotlight. The emphasis on awards and recognitions further establishes the restaurant’s esteemed reputation.

Screenshot of Culture Espresso, from the squarespace restaurant websites collection.

Culture Espresso owns two locations in New York City (both loved by the people of New York). They serve inventive coffee drinks and fresh cookies & pastries.

This café website nails the vibe quotient a coffee shop website demands. It does so by showcasing natural pictures of their coffee, the people making it, and the people enjoying it with friends. The beige background color just adds to it.

Screenshot of Landini Brothers, from the squarespace restaurant websites collection.

Landini Brothers transports diners back in time, offering traditional Italian delicacies in a rich, historical setting reminiscent of old-world charm.

The website exudes an air of elegance, combining classic interior photographs with snippets of their culinary journey.

Screenshot of PATOIS • TORONTO, from the squarespace restaurant websites collection.

Patois Toronto combines the heartwarming flavors of the Caribbean with the intricate nuances of Asian culinary artistry, branding itself as a provider of unique “Asian Soul Food.”

The eclectic mix of traditional plate designs with contemporary food presentation is intriguing. The top banner’s catchy phrase, “EAT. DRINK. SHARE.” encapsulates the restaurant’s ethos, promoting a communal dining experience. The multilingual greeting further emphasizes inclusivity and cultural blending, making it appealing to a broad audience.

Screenshot of Alinea, from the squarespace restaurant websites collection.

Alinea Restaurant has a simple web design with a ‘Book Table’ CTA front and center, which is good. But the reason this website is in the “inspiring restaurant websites” collection is its food photography—it’s, simply put, a superb gallery; I don’t even mind the absence of gutters between image blocks.
