English term or phrase: hello and have a good night.
hello to you I hope you have a good night. (I do not know this person very well, so I am trying to say this formally)

Russian translation:Здравствуйте. Надеюсь, вам хорошо спалось.
Explanation:
Well, a more or less formal greeting is 'Zdravstvuyte' - or 'Dobroye utro' (Good morning), 'Dobry den' (Good afternoon) 'Dobry vecher' (Good evening). As for the second part, if you wish good-night to a person you say 'Spokoynoy nochi'; when asking how the night was - meeting someone in the morning - the best one is 'Kak spalos?'
In case your PC speaks Russian, here you are:
Здравствуйте. Доброе утро. Добрый день. Добрый вечер.
Как спалось?
Best luck!

Добрый день. Надеюсь, Вы хорошо спали.


Explanation:
Dobriy den'. Nadeyus' vi horosho spali.
Or you may say
Надеюсь, Вы выспались. (nadeyus' vi vispalis)
But frankly speaking it is not very polite to ask about how someone spent his/her night unless this is the point of conversation.
Anyway it is just my opinion as Russian. =)

Здравствуйте. Надеюсь, что вы проведете хороший вечер!


Explanation:
Sorry, fairly literal translation as I don't have any dictionaries. The sentence doesn't seem to be talking about night as in 'sleeping', more night as in going out. I'm sure there's a better way to say it in Russian though.

agree  Natalie: Yes,it seems to be the case. An improved version:"Zdravstvujte.Nadejus', vy horosho provedete vecher".

  -> Thanks. Unless of course they're referring to the past - in which case '....вы хорошо провели вечер!'

Здравствуйте. Желаю Вам хорошо провести вечер (ночь).


Explanation:
It seems to me that you refer to the future, not to the past. More context is needed (do you speak about a certain event to be held in the early hours of the night or do you want to wish a good night's sleep to the person?)
