Michael and staff at First Class Catering Services made my husband’s 40th birthday absolutely perfect! From our initial interaction, to the day of, Michael was extremely friendly and helpful and I honestly can’t say how impressed I am! We received compliments from all our guests about how fantastic the food was. The tri-tip was literally the best I’ve ever had! I do corporate events for a living and book a lot of different caterers in city’s we host events in, and no one has ever been as good as Michael. Do yourself a favor and hire First Class Catering for your next event, you will not be disappointed!

Michael and his family with 1st Class Catering provided a fantastic Mexican buffet with all the fixings for my daughter’s wedding last weekend. The attention to detail, from the couples’ vision, the excellent authentic food, and the professional staff it was 5*****. Not forgetting the bartenders pouring perfect “Signature Drinks”. Michael was so gracious towards all of us and our last minute details it couldn’t have been better. If you’re considering an event that requires an excellent menu of any kind reach out to the talents of Michael and his staff at 1st Class Catering!!!

Michael Alcantar is an exceptional professional. As my previous review explained he was our caterer for my mother’s celebration of life in June.
This week we had my father’s birthday party and since my father loved the cake we had at the COL I contacted Michael at First Class Catering Service for a cake for Dad’s Birthday. He not only provided it but delivered it. His attention to detail and his follow through and superior customer service was exceptional. The cake was a hit and the birthday was wonderful. You will not go wrong if you select First Class Catering Service for your next event.

I hired First Class Catering for a party at a private residence on Friday night. Michael and his staff were wonderful. The food was outstanding. All of our guests were very complimentary of the food and service. Frank the bartender kept everyone’s drink full. From the setup to the teardown the entire evening was just perfect. The biggest compliment I can offer was from the owner of the home. After all the guests had left they looked around the house and stated “did we have a party here tonight?” “You would never know it.” I highly recommend First Class Catering for your event. Well done.

First Class Catering was exactly what i was looking for to prepare Sunday brunch for a party I was having. Their drop off service was very thorough in every way including advice on how to serve the food (which was delicious as well). I’ll definitely be using them again! Apparently they one a restaurant prior and it showed!

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!

We had a Celebration of Life for my husband who passed away May 4. Michael was wonderful and so experienced. We did a Mexican buffet and that is one of his specialties. My guests absolutely raved about the food. The staff were wonderful, helpful and caring. They told me at the end of the evening that they ran out of business cards so many people asked! I was nervous about doing this large gathering of 80 people and Michael worked with me and advised me like the professional he is. I can’t say enough good things.

Excellent experience. We hired 1st class catering for Mexican food for a wedding rehearsal dinner. Michael is very easy to communicate with and responds quickly. All the pre-event coordination was seamless, and the day of was even better. Michael delivered the food early, helped us set it up and get the chaffing dishes situated, and left plenty of disposable supplies for the meal. Best part was the Mexican food was delicious! All of our guests raved about it. Definitely would hire him again!

Michael did an amazing job catering the brunch / pool party we hosted the day after our wedding. He was prompt, professional, and kind. And he always responded to all my questions and concerns. But the best part was the food!!! We had several vegetarians so Michael made us special veggie enchiladas. They were so amazing that even sworn meat-eaters were going back for seconds. The food far exceeded our expectations. We would love to have occasion to hire Michael again. I’ve already recommended him to 2 friends. A+++

Michael and his crew were great and the food was delicious! What I liked the most, is Michael is most definitely a YES man! I had some very specific foods and requests and he took care of each one, answering with no hesitation that he could do it, right from the get go! Simply said, he took very good care of us and we had an incredible party!

Chef Mike was outstanding. The job was a Thanksgiving dinner for the Cathedral City Fire Department. The food was topnotch, the guys said it was like something your grandmother would make. I would recommend Chef Mike and First Class Catering for any occasion.
It was my pleasure to cook for the Men.
