    Hi do check your colors... #2 and #3 is severely on the yellow side.
    The food looks unappealing and off putting because of it. Take note of your background also. Is that a book in the bg in #3?
    keep trying!

    Hi! I enjoy snapping a few shots before I eat my food too. I'm still very new to this but some things I find helpful:

    1. Take a picture of a white napkin/serviette and use it to set the white balance.
    2. Choose a seat near the window if there is natural light.
    3. If restaurant is dark, snap A LOT of pictures, and if you're lucky, you'll get a decent one.

    The WB is out, too yellowish. Probably need to put on Tungsten WB.
    You using zoom lens? If can try shooting using a prime lens @ max aperture for more light.
    I'm looking at a different perpective of life.

    Its actually on the mushroom.
    Anyway, This is a classic example on how many of us get carried away thinking that a shallow depth of field would give us good food pics.

    There are many many more considerations than just a large aperture and good camera.

    Joseph, if you have a liveviewer on your DSLR. Use it to assist you to adjust the WB.

    If no LV then you got to take a few shots then change WB according.

    Unless you shoot in RAW, then you can still change the WB using software.

    Cheerz~
