    "I wish all the best to you and hope that all your dreams will come true"

    Is the sentence correct ??? especially the marked part ?

    'I wish you all the best' is the more usual way of saying it. The second part is perfect, although the 'that' and the 'will' are superfluous.

    I wish you all the best and hope all your dreams come true

    I wish you the best there is, and hope that all your dreams come true. That sounds good too

    Porteño's example is excellent as well :D

    The standard phrase is ' I wish you all the best '. Other languages use expressions like the best there is but to me it doesn't sound at all idiomatic in English, in fact it is rather puzzling.
