My husband and I enjoyed ourselves
My husband and I enjoyed ourselves completely. It's nice to know we have a fine dining restaurant right in our neighborhood. The only complaint I have is that they will be closed on mother's day.I would have loved to go there rather than driving all the way to the city.

Always a good dinner bet
Neumanali is the best California/American cuisine restaurant in Hayward, by far. Dining is casual but food is quite wonderful. Creative and not over complicated. A good wine list and the waitstaff usually have good recommendations for wine. The wine bar is comfortable and appetizers or dinner can comfortably eaten alone without feeling so much like you are eating alone. Close to Hayward City Hall and to BART.

First time but it won't be our last
Our first time dining at Neumanali. Very relaxed atmosphere set in downtown Hayward. Excellent service. Charming artistic decor. Appetizer of wild mushrooms on brochette was nicely prepared. My friend had the rack of lamb which was prepared perfectly. I had the bay scallops. These were served on a bed of sweet potato and cooked to perfection. Portions are ample and you will leave feeling very satisfied. We look forward to going back.

Unexpected gem in Hayward!
The food was great. My wife and I had a great time. My wife had a seafood stew, I had a rib-eye. Both were great. It was relatively quiet on a later-ish (730pm) Friday night. The waiter (apparently the only one) was great, but it seemed like he had too many tables, so the service was a bit slow. We weren't in a hurry, so it didn't matter.
A shocker for Hayward? We will be back!

Wow! Reviews of this place
Wow! Reviews of this place were dead on. Food was fabulous yet unpretentious, service was attentive but not bothersome, and the ambiance was relaxed and thoughtful. Will be going again.

Food was great here. Ordered the lamb, it was delicious. Wanted to try the trout but unfortunately they were out of it. There were some loud diners that sat next to us but once they left the restaurant was nice and quiet.

Should have tried it sooner!
We've lived in downtown Hayward for 4 years now, and always said we wanted to try Neumanali . . . but we never got around to it. We should have done so sooner. The restaurant was great. When we were there (early on a Friday night) the place was nearly empty (only 2 other tables), so it was very quiet. The server was very attentive, and gladly made recommendations or discussed dishes with us. I had the ribeye, and my wife had the prosciutto wrapped prawns. Both were very good. The wine list was extensive (try the Meritage!), and had a selection for whatever you were eating.
Don't make the mistake I did. TRY THIS RESTAURANT! You won't regret it!

A Delightful Evening
Easy parking, quiet street, delightful old Victorian, huge portions of very good food, excellent service in a romantic, stress free restaurant! What is not to love?
