    Yes yes yes!

    First off Paul was a pleasure to work with! Always answered when called and always on top of things. He came to my house to cook for our trial dinner and it was amazing. His wife makes great tasting and beautiful cakes and his team is hands down the best. The dj was also great and had everything I asked for ready to go! CLAUDIA his front of house is probably my favorite person ever. We had a wedding crisis and she was right there helping my and feeding me well needed shots. She also doubles as our wedding planner because we lacked one. Never asked just jumped in and rocked it. If your in doubt of this company remember it comes with her and that’s well worth it.

    Excellent service from beginning to end

    I cannot be more grateful to Paul and his team at the Dancing Palate for the food and service they provided for my wedding this past April. I did not have a single vendor that was more responsive than Paul...I felt like he was just watching the phone for my contact so that he could respond within minutes!
    One of the difficulties with my wedding was the issue of immigration. My wife was overseas and we were not sure when she was going to be in the states to have our wedding. As such, we needed two dates tentatively booked and Paul had no issues with that. He took a small deposit and essentially said "Let me know when the date is and we will make it work." And I must say, he was a man of his word.
    I went online to see the options for the menu and he had such an extensive menu to choose from. I was impressed with the variety he had and had such a tough making a decision, I included several people in the process. We ended up with braised beef and morrocan spiced fish as the main course. After sending him the choices and finalizing the date - we set up a tasting. This was a great day! He actually came to our house and made the food in our kitchen - FRESH!!! I was so impressed and the food was too good! We asked him to make a small change to one of the dishes and he had no problem with that.
    Included in his price was the cake and it was so good - three layers and three different flavors. On the day of the wedding, his team, servers and all, were just as outstanding and this was not just my opinion, but practically every one of my guests. The food was prepared fresh and served from the kitchen in the hall directly to the guests. I have never seen this type of service before. Me and my wife felt like a king and queen who were treated to a wonderful banquet.
    All in all, I HIGHLY recommend the Dancing Palate and would not hesitate in booking him in the future.
