Welcome to our beautifully restored Victorian with a contemporary twist. Neumanali opened fifteen years ago and quickly became a neighborhood favorite.

We are open for indoor dining. Patio seating is available. We are not requiring masks for those who have been vaccinated, however, we appreciate your adherence to the state masking requirements for those not vaccinated.

The menu features both fresh and seasonal entrees in addition to a selection of fun and unusual small plates. Perennial favorites are the pan-seared day boat scallops, grilled ribeye and pan seared pork chop. The wine list is a bit eclectic and features smaller, more difficult to find winery selections. Lush garden dining is available now.

    I had high expectations based on positive reviews I read before dining at Neumanali. Despite the consistently similar negative reviews OVER MULTIPLE YEARS regarding the 'host-server-busser' one person show, I kept an open mind. Unfortunately, the reviews were accurate. While efficient, he was snappy, curt, charmless and worst of all we felt that we were rushed in making our choices from the moment we entered the restaurant. I'll spare you the details; suffice it to say, that our special anniversary celebration, which was not even acknowledged, will be remembered in a not so pleasant way. Prices were reasonable for the wine bottle (Samuel Robert Pinot Noir, 2022), warm goat cheese salad, lamb chops, scallops, cheese cake and sundae. I was not happy with the overly sweet potatoes under 4 tiny scallops and the salad that needs more than one, bigger warm goat cheese. My husband enjoyed the tender lamb chops but did not like the chewy, roasted potatoes. Desserts were ordinary.

    My wife and I decided to try this restaurant for our 32nd wedding anniversary. We made a very good choice. My wife had the lamb chops that were so tender. You could cut them with a butter knife. I had the scallops, a top sweet potato purée and the scallops were cooked perfectly, the waiter was very friendly. We will definitely come back here for our next date night. I didn’t think Hayward would have such a gem.

    Entered restaurant with high hopes for special treat. Unfortunately I was met at the reception area by the Maître’d/Server’s attitude. I didn’t get the memo about how important the restaurant is. My medium/rare ribeye steak was raw on the edges and had to be sent back. I did not feel comfortable, as though I was troublesome to the server. I skipped dessert, and asked to take the remainder of my new, perfectly cooked steak home, and may I please have the check. I left cash, including a 20% gratuity. The steak came back in a box, no bag. I asked if the waiter had a bag for my box. His response was: “No, I don’t “, and he walked away. I am sorry I left a gratuity! Overall, what could have been a wonderful experience turned out to be just another mediocre dinner.

    Always a wonderful dining experience. Great service and the food is always delicious. One of the few places a trust to cook a steak properly.

    Neumanali is has a unique setting in a beautiful old home, and it's a pleasure just to be in the space. This was our first time there and, to be honest, the wine we enjoyed (an Oregon Pinot and a California Cab) outshined both the food and the service. The rack of lamb was the highlight; we shared the prosciutto-wrapped prawns, which were a little chewy and bland. The warm goat-cheese salad was fine. Most of all, I'm hoping that our waiter was either subbing for a friend or having a bad day. If you don't enjoy being a gracious, welcoming host and an enthusiastic waiter, you shouldn't be in this line of work. (For a lot of people, it's the service that makes dining out an extraordinary experience. We'll hope for better if we come again.)

    It's the only fine dining American Cuisine Restaurant we have in Hayward and they do a great job. Neumanali's has existed for approximately 20 years, if they retire then we have nothing in fine dining.
