First and foremost Thank you chef Paul for an amazing dinner party! You made my 35th birthday rememberable!!!! I have to start with his patient over the phone when we needed to build the menu and I kept on getting all over the place, he just helped me make the right choices for my menu. Of course he was so professional showing up on time and cooking like a pro! We had a party of 10 and for that much food you didn’t even hear any noise from the kitchen. ALL the items he made for us were WOW! the plates got served and the food just disappeared from the plate immediately ! He even gave me a personal gift and sang for us which was a great surprise! And most important they left my kitchen as if we never had a dinner party going on... it was spotless!!! Thank you chef for a great night! We will see you again!!!!

The Dancing Palate was the perfect private chef for my birthday party dinner. I wanted a Florida Keys styled menu which he provided.The appetizers of tater tot’s and bruschetta was delicious and the main course of grouper was to die for. He and his son catered to me and my other six guest we had great conversation and he even serenaded me, it was really nice. His wife made a specialty cake for my birthday of chocolate and Bailey’s and designed it just the way I wanted it. I would recommend the Dancing Palate for your occasion. Thank you Chef Paul and your son for making my birthdayA wonderful occasion.

Chef Paul and his son Joseph prepared a lovely birthday dinner for four. After a brief phone call, he was able to choose the perfect flavors that were right on point for our group. We truly had a wonderful experience.
