In general, economy (2nd class) is enough for most travelers. First class might not be much more expensive than 2nd class, but you should see what prices you get because 1st class might not be much more expensive. In the 2nd class section, the seats are arranged 2+2 across the car width, mostly unidirectional with a couple of tables for 4 people, perfect for families. Refreshment trolleys can be found in most trains, or you can dine in the restaurant cars.

In first class, leather seats are arranged as 2+1 across the car's width, rather than 2+2 in economy. Solo seats are available on one side of the aisle, while tables-for-2 are available on the other side. There is no food or drink included, but orders are placed at your seat and food is brought to you, so you do not need to visit the restaurant car.
