My husband and I are very pleased with the service provided. Bill Hansen is definitely expensive and my gripe is that every little thing is an extra fee. However, it is worth it and the saying is true, you get what you pay for. We did our tasting before we booked them. The tasting visit was very nice. There was a sign at the venue to indicate my presence and we were served as if it was the real day. There were some changes we wanted to make and they made them the day of and the food was just as good as the tasting. The food came out hot and everything was delicious. We had multiple guests who are used to "fine" dining and have high standards. Every guest told us the food was great, even the guests with high standards. They even wanted another plate!!!! Also, my grandmother is old school and only eats certain foods. She said that was the best grouper and mashed potatoes she's had in her 86 years of life! The other thing that was great were the DRINKS! The drinks were flowing and oh so yummy. Our guests said the drinks were great and they had plenty to drink. My last gripe is that we had drinks that should have been served only to my husband but they were served to all the guests and the glassware was placed on top of the bar stacked high which is not elegant at all. Shaneil, the person that I was with from the beginning, called me a few days after the event to ask me for feedback. I thought that was really nice and no other vendor did that. When I told her about my concerns she offered to buy my husband's bottles of alcohol which I thought was classy but I declined. The service that was provided erases any little thing we had concerns about. There is no perfect vendor but they were close to it. If we have a vow renewal ceremony or big party, we will book them again.
Pros-Good drinks! Good food! Hot food! Good service! Hello...what else do you need!!!
Cons-Delay in response to emails in the beginning but not close to wedding and everything is an additional fee.

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. I was a little nervous though about the food because that is one thing I hear a lot of people complaining about at weddings and I knew I didn’t want that to happen. 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 say, 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.

From the moment we walked into Villa Woodbine it took a breath away. 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 Hanson 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.

Bill Hansen Catering was incredible to work with. Our contact there, Lindsey Brooks, was helpful in every way throughout the whole process for our wedding at Villa Woodbine. She answered all of our questions thoroughly and made sure everything was executed properly and how we wanted it. The food was beyond delicious and all of the guests loved it. The staff on the day of the wedding was wonderful and worked alongside my wedding planner going above and beyond to make sure our night was relaxed and perfect. Would definitely recommend them to any couples getting married in South Florida!

From the Hors D'oeuvres to dinner the food was amazing and all the guest raved about it. The food presentation and taste was phenomenal. Great attention to detail!!!! The staff the day of the wedding was very professional. The final product turned out lovely but getting there was a headache! I found them not to be very honest and after you pay and have a singed contract many additional charges come up. I paid for them to provide some champagne for the toast and purchased my own for the guest at the bar. The day of the wedding they did not bring any champaign and used mine for the toast. Subsequently we ran out of champaign. I also found that they at times were not very organized so I had to keep a log of all of our emails to make sure that what was promised was delivered. They are also over priced. I thought I had paid for a wedding planner but instead I paid for "full wedding coordination" which apparently is not the same thing (who knew)?

This place ruined my wedding. I spent 39,000$$ and nothing I picked out for my wedding was served. My cocktail hour ran out of food and half of the staff showed up to work my wedding. This place is a nightmare and I was stressed out bc of them the whole time. The owner had no words but I'm sorry. Please do yourself a favor and use a different company. They are liars and do not own up to their lies. It's a shame and disgrace what they did to my husband and I.

The food was AMAZING! Bill was very responsive and very helpful. he sat with me and went through venue by venue in Miami and gave me the blow-by-blow on what venues would work best for my wedding and the pros and cons of each.

His staff, once you sign a contract, is less responsive because they are so busy, but when push comes to shove everything gets done and all questions get answered.... and they put out amazing food that is presented beautifully!

I wish I could say we had a good experience with Bill Hansen catering but we did not. Originally they seemed great, until we signed the contract. Then the service took a serious turn for the worst. Some examples:
- very delayed or no response to emails. Our contact person's email signature said "please allow a 48 hour response to emails." But even that TWO DAY turn-around on emails wasn't always met.
- We set up the tasting over a month in advance and informed them of the number of people that would be attending. Then the DAY before the tasting we were told there would be an extra charge due to the number of people. They should have told us this when we originally booked it, not after we invited our parents.
- at the first tasting the food was served to us literally cold. Additionally the meat was not cooked how it was going to be cooked at the actual wedding. We were confused and explained that we thought the point of the tasting was to see how the food would be served and prepared the day-of the event. Our sales contact acknowledged the cook may have been overwhelmed. But she then proceeded to charge us when we asked for a 2nd tasting to actually taste the food as it would be served.
- My husband is garlic sensitive so we tweaked some of their recipes to not include garlic. They explained that the food would all be cooked to our taste. Well, at the wedding, one of the sides was FULL of garlic unlike how it was at the tastings.
- after our on-sight meeting where we decided many of the logistics, the revised proposal came back not reflecting many of the changes we had discussed. It was as if our sales contact had not been there.
UPDATE: Upon writing this review, Bill Hansen contacted me himself. After hearing our complaints he offered us a $1,000 refund and also explained how they will improve various aspects going forward with other clients. Because of that I have increased my ratings. This was CLEARLY not their standard level of service and an exception.

The only thing that was more exceptional than this venue, Villa Woodbine, was the catering staff of Bill Hansen Catering (www.billhansencatering.com). My handsome groom and I could not have dreamed of a more well-organized, delicious and fun filled service from the extraordinary staff. The feed back that we got from our guests was that it was one of the best, if not the best wedding they had ever been to; Their table staff made them feel like our royal guests, and the food and drink was exceptional. The delivery of each part of the day was orchestrated like a finely tuned ballet, from the setting up of the gorgeous outdoor wedding stage (set up outside "in the round" in the breath-taklng back courtyard) to the final coffee, tea and dessert service. We are so grateful to Bill, Shaneil, Adam, Jerry and their talented staff for making our day not only extraordinary, but unforgettable. We would recommend this venue and Bill Hansen Catering to anyone looking for a top class, yet down to earth affair.
All our best,
Mrs and Mr E!

We would recommend this venue and Bill Hansen Catering to anyone looking for a top class, yet down to earth affair.
All our best,
Mrs and Mr E! Read less

Everything was perfect! The food was excellent. We opted to have a buffet for 120 people. I wasn't sure it could be done, but it was perfect.

The Villa Woodbine was absolutely gorgeous. The lights in the trees, the peacock, dancing in the loggia. What a magical place! I hope someone I know gets married there so I can go back!

Bill Hansen's catering was wonderful to work with throughout the whole planning process. The food was good and the service was excellent. Any problems that arose during the wedding were quickly handled. I was somewhat disappointed with the overall decor/set up of the reception (dinner station tables and cocktail tables).

It almost seems like a secret... but Bill Hansen Catering (phenomenal caterer) has its own spectacular venue... The Historic Villa Woodbine, where his catering expertise evolves its a heavenly wedding experience at one of the most beautiful venues in South Florida.

Food - A+++ - My husband works in the food industry, so he knows good food and had set pretty high expectations for our wedding meal. He wanted a 5-star food experience and would not accept "wedding food" at our wedding. Honestly, they exceeded our expectations... the meal was beautifully presented and more importantly, tasted delicious, (even by my husband's picky standards). Our guests were really impressed and that's always a great feeling.

Service - A+++ - My glass was always filled with champagne without even having to ask. Isn't that wonderful? Everything was taken care of in such a polite, "we are here for you; you are our guest" demeanor, that we had a fabulous time without a care in the world!

Team - A+++ - You can't ask to feel anymore cared for... Bill, Adam, Janet, and (another wonderful, jolly gentleman who he took care of things the day of) are wonderful people. PERSONAL SERVICE is the motto that they live and work by. Adam was extremely helpful and responsive, even when I frantically emailed him at 8pm days before the wedding - I'd get a reassuring email back within minutes. Incredible!

They should have 10 stars for value! They really deliver above and beyond!

THANK YOU SOOOO MUCH!!! Our wedding was a blast! Truly a dream come true, thanks to you and all your team!! :)

When we first met Bill Hansen we had no idea who he was. He was so funny and charming and when we found out who he was we couldnt believe how down to earth and awesome he was. His staff is polite and on point. People are still talking about the food at our wedding. I've gotten so many comments from people saying how the food at weddings is normally not very good and they couldnt believe how good the food was. The servers and bartenders were great. I especially loved the buffet. They bring out stuff in small portions so that everything is always fresh.

The caterers were able to make my menu exactly what I wanted and what my guests would like. They had a tasting which allowed us to get a preview of what we would be having. They also had a very professional staff who made it so we did not have to worry about a thing the night of the wedding, on which my husband and i were able to really enjoy ourselves!

Our wedding reception was held at Bill Hansen's Villa Woodbine. Our guests have still not stopped raving about the food. The folks at Villa Woodbine were extremely easy to work with, and since I was planning the wedding remotely I definitely needed people who would be responsive and willing to be flexible. They were able to design a menu for us to meet our budget and were willing to rise to the culinary challenge of including Peruvian touches that I wanted. Their team is definitely expert and thought of every little detail that I had overlooked. I highly highly recommend Bill Hansen.

I LOVED MY CATERER. Everyone was great, on time, professional and helpful. The food was incredible... I come from Italian parents and to us it was very important to have a good meal... Bill Hansen gave us an extraordinary dinner... my dad was very pleased and I must say that is really hard to achieve. Nicole and Sheanile were awesome, and Janet is my wedding mom, so sweet! If I could give more stars I will :)
The most important things in a wedding: Good food and good music :)

I loved working with Bill Hansen Catering - they are a team of exceptional professionals with years of experience. They took care of everything: venue location, rentals, valet, catering, staffing. The villa is absolutely stunning and I was able to get ready in one of their rooms upstairs. Janet and Nicole are fantastic to work with, they are extremely sweet and guided me every step of the way. The food was great! I highly recommend them to anyone, regardless of your venue.

Janet, Nicole and Bill were all very pleasant and easy to work with. We rented their location, Villa Woodbine, for the wedding, and had the food served by Bill Hansen Catering. Every detail was covered by them, and they worked well within our budget to fit in all our needs. The location was beautiful and the food was great. Our menu options were all great, making it difficult to choose just a few items for the menu! The presentation was great and all our guests raved about how good the meals were. Villa Woodbine is a beautiful location, and the staff was great at accomodating all our wishes. Would definitely recommend them to friends.
