Do you know how similar this looks to The Restaurant Theme? http://themeforest.net/item/the-restaurant/111482

To be honest, I’ve taken inspiration from a few restaurant templates on ThemeForest. Foodie is a complete redesign of an original theme I designed a while back which was rejected. Though the reviewers seem to like the homepage, I’m still searching for ways to freshen up the inner pages.

I have had my restaurant HTML template rejected, with the reviewer stating that it is a very good concept but the inner pages need to be brought up to the same quality as the homepage.

If anyone has any ideas on how to improve this it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for that Scott. You seem to have helped a lot of people around here so I’ll take all you’ve said on board and make the changes. Cheers man :)

I have just had my first WordPress template submission rejected, with the reviewer saying the basics of the theme and the design need to be improved significantly. He didn’t target anything specifically, so I am wary that I will have to make quite a number of changes.

All constructive feedback will be much appreciated. :)

It has a lot of potential, I agree with the others though, those boxes have to be changed. I find myself constantly looking at the green sections of the page and ignoring the content.

I’m not crazy about how different the three social media areas are either. Even though one is a Twitter feed, one is a sharing option and the other is just plain icons, I just think they should all look similar.

I’m not sure really, it’s a nice design, though clearly unfinished and needs a lot more work. The main thing it needs is a unique selling point, because at the moment it looks way too plain and is trying to suit the needs of every category.

Work on the typography and spacing, and maybe try an aim it towards a specific market.

Good luck with it anyway :)

Same as routsounmanman, only new here, thought I’m pretty experienced with WordPress, design and development.

Theme looks nice for one still in development. Few small changes I would recommend:
  • The navigation menu looks incomplete, maybe requiring a dropdown or hover effects
  • You use quite a few different colors (black, white, green, blue, red). Maybe narrow these down a bit.
  • Few spacing problems

Here’s my feedback on a screenshot anyway -> http://gavinflood.com/themes/theme-comments/selroti-comments.jpg

Good luck with the design, hope to see it again soon :)
