Restaurant Menu FAQs:

  • Design your virtual menu with the same mindset as a hard copy menu. Keep descriptions short and concise but with enough detail to be enticing. The menu creator makes it easy to create separate sections for appetizers, main courses, desserts, etc. Remember, when you use our free menu maker you are free to experiment with all aspects since it can be changed at any time with the click of a button.

  • Our free menu maker lets you design with ease. When designing a virtual menu it is important to create mood and ambiance by selecting appropriate visuals and layouts. This includes background color, image placement, and font. When designing your background, less is usually more. You want to ensure that your menu is still the main focus of the page.

  • Always incorporate what makes your restaurant’s cuisine unique. The menu creator is so versatile, you have more options than ever. Don’t forget to note clear pricing, food allergens, vegetarian/vegan options, and any special time it might take to create a dish (e.g., deep dish pizza can take 45 minutes)! Try to highlight the aspects of your food that keep your customers coming back for more.

  • When you use a virtual menu creator it couldn’t be easier to make your menu stand out in the crowd. Use high quality images of food and drinks or even a video greeting from the Chef de Cuisine. A virtual menu allows you to try new things you never thought of because, unlike a traditional menu, it is not written in permanent ink. Have fun with it!
