Hello Amanda! I wanted to let you know what an incredible job your staff did. Antony was just great. I couldn’t have been in better hands. Thank you to you for putting it all together. Next time we are in the Miami area and need event services you are first on my list.
~ Corporate Dinner ~ February 2017
Amanda & Christina – Brette’s wedding was simply outstanding. You executed her vision flawlessly and we can’t thank you enough. Every detail was total perfection, from the food, the flowers, the service….EVERYTHING! It all came together and Jack and I were able to enjoy every minute, knowing such capable people were taking care of all the details. It was difficult to imagine what it would all look like, not having been to a wedding at Vizcaya or seen it at night. It was simply magical. All the guests were overwhelmed and complimented the food and the flowers.
~ Frances & Jack ~ February 2017
Hi Paula, We hope you were able to enjoy a bit of rest and relaxation yesterday! It was SO wonderful to work with you and your team on Saturday!

~ Samantha ~ RCA Records ~ July 2016
The team, led by Lissette, was on-point from the moment they arrived. Travis proved to be quite courteous and considerate as well as he picked up on my concern given the catering truck’s location in regards to the grounds.
Paula and Ramon were both professional and attentive as they anticipated the needs of our guests. I’d like to tip my hat to lead Chef Ahren, Chef Diego and Chef Keith, their masterful creations brought a smile to our guests as they savored each course. To quote our guests, “Santi, there is no finer 5 Star restaurant than this!’
Earlier in the day, as I stood on the front porch with Kay and discussed the final plans for the evening, I held no doubt that we were in for a treat from this “A team.”
My thanks to you, and your stellar crew for providing our guests with what was truly a memorable evening.
~ Santi ~ Dinner at Estancia Culinaria ~ July 2016
Awesome experience – totally on point!!
~ Daniela ~ New World Travel ~ June 2016
I just want to tell you what a wonderful job your staff always does when my husband and I have worked with your team at weddings.
Your staff truly stands out as consisting of people that care about the guests, bride and groom, and even vendors at events. Always smiling and professional, and their great work ethic shows. Your staff as a whole is wonderful and attentive, and the food is always top notch, of course.
I just want to thank you for creating a wonderful catering experience. High five to you and your team!
~ Becca ~ Becca Borge Photography ~ June 2016
Let me begin by saying, Kay Rivas from Bill Hansen Catering/Villa Woodbine is a wedding guru/goddess. From the beginning, Kay was so involved in every detail of our wedding from how our tables should be arranged to what color of straws we should use in our specialty cocktail. We were planning our wedding in Miami from New York City, which could have proved to be extremely stressful. With the help of Kay, we were calm throughout the entire process. She was responsive, patient, calm, creative, resourceful, and an excellent decision maker. If I ever had a worry, she found a solution. (…) My father and I have severe food allergies, and she made sure was had a nut-free wedding and that I had wheat-free bread, which was delicious. No detail was forgotten. The food from Bill Hansen Catering was absolutely excellent at our wedding, but what I found so exceptional was the level of service and care that I received.
~ Cristina A ~ Villa Woodbine Wedding ~ May 2016
Hi Sandra, We had such an amazing time at our wedding and everyone enjoyed themselves. The food and desserts were delicious and everyone can’t stop talking about the venue. You and your staff did a great job and we appreciate it. I am happy that you were there to witness our union, it really was a beautiful ceremony.
~ Racquel and Dipen ~ Villa Woodbine Wedding ~ April 2016
Christina!! THANK YOU for everything that you did for us. I was so sad that I didn’t get to say good bye to you either! The wedding went absolutely perfectly and so much of it was thanks to you. You handled everything so wonderfully but it was also FUN working with you. The guests were saying such incredible things about the food and the staff.
~ Angela ~Cruz Building Wedding ~ April 2016
Hi Christina, The entire staff at the Villa was absolutely fantastic. Ian and I were so happy to have chosen the Villa and are still talking about how special it was for us. From the moment I arrived on Saturday morning to the moment we left after it was over – you helped with every detail. I was so happy and excited that my only anxiety was about getting on the dance floor and partying. I could not bear to miss one minute of the celebration.
Marissa ~ Villa Woodbine Wedding ~ March 2016
Hi Amanda, On behalf of myself, Nicholas & everyone at Deco, thank you & everyone at Bill Hansen Catering for helping to make the dinner so successful! The client, management, and the guests were all blown away by the food, decor & professionalism.
It was also such a pleasure working with BHC – you were wonderful (so appreciate NYC work style!) , Lissette was so good & your waitstaff & culinary team were not only very talented & professional but incredibly nice and helpful. I look forward to partnering with you again.
~ Vanessa ~ DECO Production ~ March 2016
Sandra, I wanted to thank you and the entire Bill Hansen team for the amazing wedding together this past Saturday. Everything was to perfection! The food was delicious, I passed by every table and they were extremely happy (no complains at all) the staff was very attentive and responsible. The servers were extremely professional and willing and everything went really smooth. The clients were very happy the mother will probably give you a call to thank you and mentioned she will use you guys for other events. Thank you again! I truly enjoyed working together and Anthony and the team were the best!
~ Paula ~ Bsocial Events ~ February 2016
Everything was top notch!, the food, the service, the flowers, the heaters, the lights, the flooring, the whole set up. It looked great and everybody had a great time. For a moment I thought that maybe the extra hour was too much, but no, people were still hanging out as the crew started to clean up :). For a Thursday we had great turn out.
Thank you Diego, you did a great job! If I had to do this over again I would not hesitate to hire Bill Hansen and you specifically (although the credit goes to Kayla, she chose you), but I should definitely have hired a coordinator as I found myself running around overseeing some things. It would have helped a great deal if the time line had been adhered to, but I discovered it was more up to us to keep track of it.
~ Cecilia ~ Wedding at Thalatta Estate ~ February 2016
Thank you so much, Sandra! I wanted to pass along all of the wonderful feedback I heard. They thought that the event was outstanding, and they so appreciate all of the hard work you and your team put in. We’ll let you know when we’ll be back! Enjoy the rest of the week.
~ Kristen ~ Citi Bank ~ January 2016
Amanda, I don’t know what we would have done without you!
We really can’t thank you enough for all your help: from finding the venue, to introducing us to other vendors, to always making us feel like no matter what it was going to be an awesome day (even with Vizcaya construction and madness-inducing Adrienne). Not to mention the food was excellent and the service was perfect.
~ Ashley & Michael ~ Wedding ~ January 2016
Hi Sandra -We really have been left speechless at how perfect our wedding day was. The Villa looked incredible. It’s truly amazing to see how everything came together to create the wedding of our dreams. We want to thank you and your team for being a part of our special day and making sure the day was perfect!
~ Mari & Bernie ~ Wedding ~ January 2016
Hi Kay, The Christening was wonderful. The staff, food and service was excellent. Please share with them all just how happy I am with how the event went. The idea of omelets and salad was perfect and the extra tables worked out beautifully as well. Thank you!
~ Lauren Esnes ~ January 2016
The presentations, taste, service and professionalism was beyond what they expected…I knew it would be from previous occasions…and as Bonnie told me today, “You know I can be a pain about details. They never missed one. I could not have been happier.” Please consider that high praise.
Gaetana, again I personally want to thank you for working so closely with me on this project. It was a real pleasure and enjoyable too. Your immediate staff and sub contractors were amazing. Please use me as a reference if you like. I look forward to working with you again at another event. You are awesome!
~ Tom ~ Rexmere Village ~ January 2016
Amanda, everything was beautiful! The food was fabulous (as expected) and the service was impeccable. The valet did a great job too. Thanks to you, Anthony and everyone who worked so hard to make the night flawless.
~ Christine Barney ~ December 2015
Thank you so much for everything Sandra. You went above and beyond your duties (feeding the little one) and we want you to know that we are very grateful of that. It was a pleasure working with you and I look forward to seeing you at our restaurant!
~ Fred Niznik ~ Wedding ~ December 2015
Dear Bill, I hope this email finds you well. First and foremost, I want to thank you and your terrific staff for the most incredible, over the top, most beautiful wedding. My family and friends can not stop talking about the venue, your staff and how fairytale and magically it was. It was truly spectacular.
When I first called your office, I was informed that Kay Rivas was going to be my event planner. Our meeting went so smoothly, Kay understood my ideas, she drew up a floor plan and my vision was complete. Kay recommended certain vendors, Rafi Grosz, Petal Productions and AA Musicians, Alan Andai and my most important person, my coordinator, Christina Acosta.
I can’t rave enough about all these special people that work with you. I am so truly grateful. My flowers were over the top gorgeous, the music was fantastic and Christina catered to my every need.
What more could I ask for? Your staff made the most important day of my life so special. I love them all. The food and presentation was outstanding. I¹ve been getting so many compliments on the selections, since I had vegans and vegetarians to think about. Everything was perfect. Please thank the chefs for me.
~ Maxine ~ Wedding ~ November 2015
Hi Bill, I know you are running around like crazy especially this week, but I just wanted to send you a gigantic THANK YOU for making our event possible. I know you know, but your team is absolutely incredible. I have never felt so confident and at ease during an event. Everything was incredibly delicious and I do not think our guests could have had another bite. Truly wonderful. Thank you so so much!
~ Elizabeth ~ MDC Museum of Art+Design ~ November 2015
“I wanted to take a second for a BIG thank you for all of your support and services these past weeks. You have been such a pleasure to work with on this event and always remained so calm, helpful and proactive with all of our crazy changes. We received incredible feedback on the food and staff at our rest stops and we could not be happier with the results! We truly look forward to working with Bill Hansen catering in the future for these events.”
~ Megan Garcia ~ Best Buddies International ~ November 2015
“For us the food and service was one of the biggest and most important aspects of the wedding and you and the team surpassed our expectations. Everyone kept raving about the food and the drinks. The staff was so attentive at making sure we ate and were enjoying ourselves. We were stuffed by the end of the night! The day was a dream come true and everything was executed perfectly. I have no complaints or regrets about anything.”
~ Danielle ~ Wedding ~ November 2015
“Thank you all soooo much for making the day amazing, the comments about the food made us more than happy as we’ve never been to a wedding and had nice food – let alone of the calibre that you guys produced. As foodies that was so important to us and you really delivered on it. The beef was out of this world and quite a few people said it was the best meat they’d ever tasted! You guys were spectacular and I would 1000% recommend for anyone to use you. Thank you so much for coming along too, your personal touch really made the whole day so much more enjoyable and easy.”
~ Charlie & Marc ~ Wedding ~ October 2015
“Dear Sandra, I just want to take the opportunity to send a heartfelt thank you to you and your hard working staff. Anja & Jimmy ‘s wedding on October 10, 2015, was a splendid event and we heard so many good things from the guests who were all admiring Villa Woodbine. It was a pleasure working with you and this day will be memorable for a long time.”
~ Johanna & Andrew Sherry ~ October 2015
“WOW!! I know this will sound cheesy and cliché – but it was truly my dream wedding come true!! In all seriousness, I loved and enjoyed every moment! All was done & placed correctly, there were literally no issues or problems or “raising our eyebrows.” It could not have been more perfect. A huge and from the bottom of my heart thank you to you Diego, and your team for making my day above and beyond amazing.”
~ Cindy, Robert & Valentina ~ Wedding ~ October 2015
“Everything was perfect! Thanks for your patience and flexibility, for sure we will have more opportunities to work together in the near future. I will highly recommend it to the entire team.”

~ Susan, Warren Moore Events ~ September 2015
“The guests all enjoyed not only the Villa, but raved about the entire menu. You have all made my daughter’s picture perfect wedding a reality and I want to commend and thank all of you. We will certainly come back for other important moments in our family’s life.”
~ Alicia ~ September 2015
“Everything went Awesome! Thank you so much- everyone loved the food received a lot compliments so very much appreciate it!”
“Bill, Words cannot describe the amazingness your team delivered this weekend. From the very beginning, Kay was so unbelievable in making this the best decision we ever made. From contracting, the quick delivery on the tasting, the creation of the menu, etc was beyond our expectations. Kay is so good at what she does, and I cannot thank her enough.”
At the event… your entire culinary team, every server, and especially Anthony and Jerry were FANTASTIC!!!! From everything I had to do between two venues, I came to the Versace Mansion after the ceremony to every single thing complete…… this was unreal!!!! Throughout the reception, their timing of food, communication and delivery was impeccable. Please thank them again for me.”
Again, there aren’t really words to describe how thankful I am of you and your team. I am so excited about our partnership and to many many more amazing events together!!!!”
~ Brittany, RockWithU Entertainment ~ Wedding ~ April 2015

We will definitely be working with you again in the future.
~ Monica ~ April 2015
“Hi Kay, we’re just arriving home from our honeymoon – jet lagged, but so happy! We only wish we could have brought home some of the most delicious pasta and gelato we’ve ever eaten! Lol While we were away our photographer sent a link to our gallery of her shots. We’ve started to comb through them and we are delighted! Heather really captured the joy and excitement of the day! You’ll see for yourself the delight in our faces, how absolutely magical the evening was for us! You made that happen, Kay! We couldn’t have been happier! Your staff was impeccable and exceptionally courteous, the chef prepared a beautiful, creative buffet and was completely charming to our guests, the rooms were breathtaking – everything felt seamlessly done. Thank you so very much, Kay, for all your amazing work, talent, insight, organization and trouble-shooting. You created a beautiful wedding for us and we are so very grateful to you! With our most sincere appreciation…

Thank you again for all your help and amazing work!”
~ Mike and Amanda ~ Wedding ~ March 2015
“Bill Hansen catering is THE caterer you want to have at your wedding… hands down. The food was out of this world and there was plenty of it. From start to finish, it was a pleasure working with Lindsay. We gave her our list of must-haves and her team delivered… even some off the charts requests… from the tasting session to the food on our wedding night, nothing was missed. The hors-d’oeuvre were to die for, and they were kind enough to make us a plate of them while we were taking our family pictures during the cocktail hour. The buffet was plentiful and everyone got served quickly with no lines. The tenderloin and chilean sea bass for the main courses were perfectly cooked. Everything was so delicious and tasty. All of our guests were blown away by the food… from little things like the olives and the piping hot bread to the potatoes au gratin and sauces. The servers and bar tenders were very professional and friendly, we received overall great service from all of them. Top notch, we wouldn’t change a thing and we want the same menu all over again! We are so grateful, thank you so much!”
~ Andrea ~ Wedding ~ February 2015

I’d be happy to work with you on any of it Thanks again!!”
~ Tanya and Mark ~ Wedding ~ March 2015
“Hello Kay! Thank you for making my wedding exceptionally beautiful. I felt I had your teams’ support the entire time and it helped me stay calm throughout the entire night.

My entire family was impressed by the impeccable service and professionalism of the staff and we would recommend Bill Hansen to any of our friends. You executed my vision exactly as I had imagined it, even in spite of the monsoon. Thank you very much for all of your help in making my wedding dream come true.”
~ Mayra Perez ~ Wedding ~ February 2015
“I engaged Bill Hansen Catering for a retirement party I gave for my husband in Miami Beach. Celebrating more than 33 years of service to a Fortune 100 company, It turned out to be a major production with over 300 guests from around the country (we also had them cater a pre-celebration event in our home for a more intimate crowd). My husband and I very much appreciated the personal care and effort put forth by the entire Bill Hansen team, at every level. The attention to the details was impeccable and we could not imagine a more successful event. There really aren’t enough words to express this and our guests are still talking about it. They really went above and beyond and set the bar high for anything we could ever think about doing again.”

“Christina, I don’t even know where to start. Everything was perfect. I felt like I was in a dream all night. Thank you and Sandra for taking care of me and making sure everything went as planned. I had so much fun and a lot of people told me the villa looked absolutely beautiful and the food was awesome. I had 2 plates!!! Even Winston made a guest appearance! I could not have asked for more. Thank you and all the staff from the bottom of my heart. It was everything I ever wanted and more.

“Last Friday I attended a wedding in Miami that was catered by your company. Jerry Cortese, was the Director of Operations and my hat goes off to Jerry and his entire staff: they were outstanding. In spite of inclement weather, they were great and made each guest feel important. Quite often we forget to recognize the efforts of the staff. You should be very proud of your employees.”

The service, assistance and attention to detail that your team provided is truly unmatched. It’s such a joy to work with people who allow me to do my job better.

My husband and I knew right then and there that this venue was going to be the place that we chose to celebrate our special day of marriage. The venue was so breathtaking the service was impeccable the food was so mouthwatering to this day our family is still talking about how amazing from beginning to and everything was. The level of service is top-notch whatever you need they don’t have it the hope you find it RJ was so enchanting it was a dream come true. So I thank you Bill Hansen and your wonderful catering staff team members for a day and the memory that my husband and I will never ever forget the rest of our days.”

“The nice thing about our caterer was that they came with our venue (Villa Woodbine). I didn’t have to do any of the searching around which made my job a lot easier. When we went into our food tasting I was amazed at the preparation and thought to myself do this same thing for my wedding I will be 100% pleased. Come wedding day, one of the biggest compliments we received was about our food. Guests were impressed with the freshness and the amount of food they got. I highly recommend Bill Hansen and would use them again if I had an event in the area.”

It was a pleasure working with you and hope we can do it again soon.”
I wanted to extend our gratitude to the miracles you were able to achieve for us at our October Bentley Car Launch at the Vizcaya Museum and Gardens in Miami.
Janet McDonald personally walked us through every nook and cranny of the museum to familiarize our team with the whole operating system of the historic site. Based on their numerous experiences at the museum, she gave us detailed suggestions of ideal locations to be utilized for our car launch right down to the placement of our car! She never once flinched at our constant changes and multiple questions throughout our planning process. More importantly the catering team’s patience and responsiveness to us as we finalized details right up until a half an hour before the launch is a quality of service to be admired and respected!
Janet and the whole team treated us like family and cared for every aspect of our event. They continuously went above and beyond their call of duty and such work cannot go without commendation and great appreciation.
Thank you for working side by side with us to produce a fabulous car launch!”
Thank you again for everything!”
Thank you so much for all you did to make my wedding day the most special day of my life. Villa Woodbine was so beautiful, the food was out of this world and the entire staff was courteous and helpful. I cannot tell you how many guests raved about the location and the food. Planning a wedding is a stressful process but your staff, especially Janet and Shaneil, made me feel special and at ease. Thank you for being such an important part of my special day.”
Last night your staff was faced with taking an outdoor party and turning it around to make it an indoor party in less than an hour………Your staff really showed grace under pressure and the evening was a big success. Close to 200 guests attended despite the weather and I can’t tell your how many compliments I have received so far regarding your staff and Stephanie Lim. Thanks for everything.”
Thank You Very Much for the excellent food and service at our 50th Anniversary party. We got many, many, compliments on the food, including one of my ambassador friends who is well-known to be “picky”. You, Lev and your team were at the top of your game- and Chuck and I appreciated the effort and quality. Please relay our thanks to Lev and Team.”
We just wanted to thank you for your exceptional service on our wedding day. A special thank you to Shaneil and Janet for your patience and flexibility, for your attention to detail and for going with the flow with all of our last minute changes. Chef Ken- a BIG thank you! You did an awesome job pleasing our Picky palettes.”
Please extend our deepest thanks to everyone and especially to Shaneil at Bill Hansen Catering for providing us with beautiful, delicious and exotically fabulous fare and an incredibly memorable culinary experience. It’s been a few days and everyone is still talking about the food!
I wish you and your team continued success at the Fillmore and I know we will work together again. Miami Begins with You!”
Thank you so much for doing such a beautiful job for David’s party. Everything was perfect. The servers were great and friendly, and the food was fabulous. I believe everyone had a wonderful time. All your personal attention was greatly appreciated.”
We just got back from the honeymoon and we’re settling back in. We wanted to thank you and your very professional staff for making our big day so magical.
You all did such a superb job and we received so many compliments not just on the food but on the execution and service as well.
Given the abundance of challenges that arise when planning a destination wedding it was a relief to work with such a reliable, accommodating and first class company such as yours.
We will sing our praises to everyone in South Florida!”
