Wonderful dinner. Salmon with lemon potatoes and hollandaise sause was delicious and the filet mignon was so tender and melted in your mouth. Had the bread pudding and flourless chocolate cake to end this excelkent meal. My husband and I were very happy customers
One of best restaurant in Hayward. Excellent overall!!
What a hidden gem of a place. I happen to find it on open table and took a chance because it was said to be quiet. We had a party of 7 and several members are particularly deaf. This makes many restaurants challenging .
The food was wonderful. We will definitely be back.
Great food and fantastic service! The owners of this place have made it a true neighborhood treasure.
I have been here a few times for my company Christmas party. And decided to bring my spouse for his birthday hoping it would be different. Food is great prices a little high . And the dryness of the waiters are terrible, they never smile, very few words spoken, leaves you feeling very uncomfortable. If that could change it would make it a very welcoming place to come to.
This is one of Haywards hidden gems. Great food. Great service (Abren is AWESOME!). They never disappoint. I like to start with my favorites, Mushroom Bruschetta, and warm goat cheese salad. They offer an awesome selection of entrees all of which are yummy. Don't forget to ask about the soup of the day. The artichoke soup is to die for!
BTW the art work displayed is museum worthy.
So great perfect ambiance and delicious menu
I’ve been traveling a lot and wanted a nice dinner with my wife and Neumanali is perfect.
The food and the service were outstanding
The wines were delicious and we cleaned our plates.
We will definitely be back.
The place is insanely consistent; always an extraordinary experience.
The food was superb -- probably some of the best food I've had at a restaurant. I had the filet mignon and my friend ordered the lamb. She said the same thing. The service was very good, the waiter had been a waiter for 30 years, and he was really on top of everything. Definitely will return.
Celebrated my 66th birthday with my wonderful husband and enjoyed a delicious dinner.
Even better, we could bring some home to enjoy another day. The cream of artichoke soup, Caesar salad, steaks, potatoes, veggies, bread, etc. were perfect. As was the ice cream sundae for dessert. We brought along an 18-year old bottle of Wente's Cabernet and it was a perfect addition to the meal. The $15 corkage fee was reasonable. Our host was mindful and the atmosphere was quiet. Unlike so many other restaurants where it is hard to talk over the din.
We just found this restaurant in the past year and have tried to book several times but it is often 'sold out ', so I suggest getting your reservation in early. We will be back! Thanks for a special birthday!
Neumanali is our favorite Hayward restaurant. We appreciate the personable service and excellently prepared dishes. They have a fine wine list and the staff is very knowledgeable about their offerings. My wife is a southerner and greatly appreciate the authenticity of their southern food dishes. We have been happy to introduce this excellent eatery to our other foodie friends.
Great local gem referred to us by some friends. Happy to have finally tried it. The restaurant made you feel like you were transported to somewhere else!
Very nice! Live in Fremont and wanted to try something different. Very happy with my pick and my wife and I will return for sure!
The meal was excellent and the service good. Even though we only had one server for the entire
restaurant he was able to handle everything and we had a very enjoyable evening.
It was romantic nice to have my wife having fun it was great day
We had another fine meal at Neumanali. We introduced a new couple to the experience this time. They were amazed at the ability to chat without having to shout. And they very much enjoyed the food and service.
The restaurant was very good and we are planning on going back. The only problem which we need to correct is that our server said that the first cc we gave him didn’t go through because it was the metal kind so we gave him a second card. What the sever didn’t realize was that the first card had gone through so that we were charged twice. The restaurant is closed today and when I contact them tomorrow I’m sure they will reverse the second charge.
We really enjoyed the food. Creative and delicious.
This is the second time we've been to Neumanali and we had a great time again!! We brought our two boys (12) and (14) and they enjoyed the food and the impeccable service, too. There's no way to go wrong at Neumanali. We had the lamb, the chicken, the scallops and the filet mignon and all were superb. We also had the asparagus soup and some very tasty appetizers.
The atmosphere is relaxed and we felt special here. We'd recommend Neumanali to anyone looking for a restaurant with excellent food, service, and a positively memorable dining experience.
This is a amazing hidden jewel in Hayward. The hubby came here for the first time a few month ago because we were tired of going to the city or San Ramon for high end food and service. The co-owner is very nice and the food was beyond AMAZING.!!
A wonderful discovery for us! Great food, wonderful building, fabulous service. We loved everything we ordered (the trout with crispy cauliflower was what I ordered and it was amazing). The room is beautiful and the other diners were a nice diverse group. I have been recommending the restaurant to everyone since we went last weekend. We brought our 8 year old and she loved it too.
The five of us each enjoyed our individual entrees and dessert.
Loved the decor, the wine recommendation was on spot and the water closet -- tops.
This has been our go-to spot for years. Always good food and service.
We had a relatively long wait for our orders to be taken. After they were, and after some time had passed, the waiter returned to tell us that they were out of the entrée my dinner companion had ordered. What he didn’t tell us was that her new choice was going to take a very long time, whereas mine would be done quickly. As a result we waited and waited. My companion’s food was plentiful but over cooked, and my meal was sparse. In general, the food was just mediocre.
Neumanali is an excellent fine dining experience. We've been before and have enjoyed ourselves each time. The service is impeccable and personalized. We will be back!
Food was delicious! Will definitely come back again
Great food...filet mignon cooked perfectly and seasoned to perfection. Bread pudding was not too sweet. Hidden gem!
Excellent food whether steak or seafood. One of the better restaurants in Hayward!!!
dinner was amazing. All the food was great quality. First time here and i'd go back again. great personal service even though they were busy.
Highly recommend this place. Hidden gem for sure!
In all the years I have lived in Hayward, finally dined here with one of my sisters. Wonderful ambiance, lighting though, too dim. Hard to really read the menu. My entree was divine. Grilled Chicken Breast topped with Roasted Corn Salsa, served with Whipped Potatoes. Entree was delivered to the table steaming hot, which is wonderful. I enjoyed the Chopped Salad, it was more like a 'minced' salad, but was so very tasty. I could've had a whole bowl of it. Include a Great dinner guest and you have the makings of a Wonderful experience.
Brought one of my girlfriends here for the first time ,she thoroughly enjoyed it one of hayward's best kept secrets and the food was impeccable as well as quick service .I have read many reviews about this restaurant and it's always a complaint about the server . IT is a husband and wife running a business and although he may not have time for small talk and he may be focused on doing his job he has always been courteous to everybody that I've seen and every time I have been there
Hayward does not have many nice establishments for company dinners. Neumanali was a great choice where the food and service was excellent and the only negative was the location that did not have sufficient parking .
I love this place my husband and I come here for Valentine's day, anniversary and birthday. We love the food, and how close it is to our home. It is our neighborhood jem!!!!
Food was delicious, we all were happy with out dishes. However Service felt like it was a little bit rushed and Since it was my birthday i was expecting like a complementary dessert, i didn’t got anything so i had to end up ordering a $8.00 cheese cake. It wasn’t a great experience so I don’t know if I will ever go back there again.
This is a true neighborhood hidden gem. We bring people here when we want a nice meal in a very nice but casual setting. It's much like having dinner at a friend's house. It a very good value as the food is excellent, nicely presented and served at reasonable prices.
We have come to trust this place.
Everything you want in a meal out. Everything.
It is always an incredible experience! We absolutely love this place and look forward to it every time.
