First Class Catering Service catered an Italian buffet for my sister's Sweet 16. They were very friendly and accommodating throughout our event planning process and tailored the buffet to our needs in order to make our event a success. Ultimately, the event was great and our guests loved the food. It was a pleasure working with Michael and will definitely recommend him to friends and family who are in search of a catering service. Thanks!

Chef Julian catered a party for 12 of us in Palm Springs. He did an absolutely amazing job and each course was delicious (the fish was among the best we've ever had)! He also did a great job with the service as well. We would 100% recommended Chef Julian!!

We hired Jeff and his staff for our wedding weekend. Friday we had a "meet and greet" BBQ and Saturday Jeff provided the food for our buffet style taco bar. We live in San Diego so we were really in the dark about Palm Springs area caterers. The food and the presentation was outstanding. We gave Jeff ideas for what we wanted and he took control and delivered all of it and more. He is a pleasure to work with and makes every effort to ensure the food is excellent and that everything runs smoothly (even when it's not his responsibility). Jeff helped with many components of our weekend, including putting us in touch with a reliable party rental business and culinary artist for the wedding cake. We are eternally grateful for Jeff and the Creating Catering staff for being part of our special weekend.

We were fortunate to have Jessica coordinate and then cater a large birthday party for almost 75 people in our home. Her ideas were fantastic, unique and original and her coordination of the entire event was amazing. All of her staff were courteous and attentive. Best of all the house was left cleaner than when they arrived. I will always used Jessica for any events we have in the future and highly recommend her.

Chef Mark is an amazing chef! He was very professional. I had a small dinner party with friends. I wasn’t sure what I wanted. Since I am on a low carb diet. After speaking with him he created a Menu to fit my diet restrict but also carter to my friends non restricted diet. Appetizer was fried calamari with sweet and sour sauce. The salad was a fresh Ahi Tuna salad. The entree was mouth watering pan seared Scallops with lemongrass carrot ginger purée. Lastly was dessert which I could only have a taste of my friends apple crisp with vanilla ice cream and homemade salted caramel. It was to hard to resist. Chef Mark made fresh berries with he’s own whipping cream!

When we were looking for a professional to cater our clubhouse event, we contacted five companies. Creative Catering from Temecula was one of those five. From the start, we were very comfortable talking and working with the owner, Tanya. She is extremely friendly and accommodating. Tanya provided us with sample meals to taste and was able to provide guidance from start to finish. As our guest list grew from 30 to 60 she was able to be very flexible to whatever changes needed to be made. Every time we had a question or menu change, Tanya responded promptly and professionally. On the evening of the clubhouse social, Tanya and her assistant were very punctual. The set-up, service and clean-up went flawlessly. Feedback from our club members was very positive. Our guests commented to us how well the meals tasted and how professional Tanya and her assistant were. The bottom line is that we would highly recommend Creative Catering and we will be looking forward to using them in the future. NJ and LJ (55+ Club)
