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!

From their fantastic event planning to the top quality and food presentation, couldn't have asked for a better caterer! The Dijon Espresso crusted tenderloin accompanied by jumbo shrimp and chimmichuri need I say more!!? I would highly recommend Jeff for future events as he will also take care of rental services and vendor referrals.

Chef Sarena was an incredible private chef. My wife and I have very particular requirements (Gluten Free and Paleo). Sarena prepared a comprehensive menu for our weekend vacation in Palm Springs. She was organized, took time to understand our likes and dislikes and most importantly her food was delicious. Sarena also kept our rental home spotless after preparing each meal and was a pleasure to be around. I would highly recommend Sarena and plan to utilize her services again any time we visit Palm Springs!

I am very happy with this catering company. What I was realy appreciated was how Joey was able to give me advice of different ideas and what type of food and wine all go together. She made me feel apart of the planning and I learned so much just the short time we where together. I will always have Joey do my parties. Sally

I hired Gil to cater a small wedding reception dinner for 20 people at a friend's home in Menifee. From beginning to end, he was a pleasure to work with: His food presentation was beautiful and delicious, he gave an accurate idea of available food options, and then, in every correspondence, Gil was quick to respond with availability, pricing, and other details. He and his staff kept an attentive eye on us, helping keep our glasses full and ensuring good pacing between courses. He left the kitchen clean and organized and was a calm and friendly presence throughout the meal. I'm so glad I thought to look around for a home chef as an alternative to dining out after my wedding--it made for a much more memorable, intimate, and stress-free experience than going out.

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)

I used Jacob for a special dinner event celebrating a very special person. Mr. Perez worked with me to create a special Menu for my guests, I had meat eaters, vegetarians, and vegans all in attendance, and he made sure there was something for everyone. His professionalism, skills, and service was impeccable. His mouth watering Filet Mignon with red wine demi glace reduction, whipped potatoes & sautéed vegetables is nothing short of amazing-My absolute favorite! I highly recommend Chef Perez, and can not rave enough how spectacular his food & service is, and how beautiful the presentation was. I exclusively use Chef Perez for all of my events.

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!
