The website took at least 30 seconds to load, but the website looks good overall, a lot of blank space. Looks like a pre-made template, but whether or not that is a compliment... I know not.


Keep up the good work.

I found the load time wasn't a function of the website, but the connection to the website - running a tracert hits similar crazy delays.

It's in cold fusion, right?

Not a fan of having a style tag in the middle of the page when you are already using style sheets in a separate file.

Also you are using direct set styles in the tags themselves! You have now THREE places you are storing styles - that must get exhausting to tweak versus say having only ONE way of doing it.

example: <font style="COLOR: black; FONT: 16pt/18pt verdana">

It's dog slow on the load. Your banners are not particularly large so that shouldn't be the problem. Oh, FYI, your directories are open for viewing.

About 3/4ths the way down your 'menu' page you have a giant long string of end tags.. I mean a ton of things.. even for tags you didn't have open! Like "</BLINK>"!

I am not a fan on how the menu is laid out. It just seems half done.

Over all the template isn't bad.. Is that something you picked up and modified or something you actually built?

Oh and you might want to get rid of the past event with the lorem ipsum in it.

In the specials - what's up with the " (zar) " between each area?

What's up with the "hours/minutes" bit loading in each form? Is that for the reservation popup?

Also your google map, on the contact us, bit is showing a ton of places. I would figure the map would be centered over 'A' - where the 'A' pin is the restuarnt.

Speaking of - I would think the contact us boxes would be normal coloring - not the wood paneling. Maybe make that section's div tags the wood paneling but not *IN* the text boxes.

On last bit - I would think the resturant's logo would be a clickable link back to the home page..

This should be a rule for every website, ever.

As a general rule of thumb you should design your site with divs and css, not tables.

Best Regards
