Delicious food! Nice, quiet ambiance. Will come back!
Neumanali “the hidden gem”, my favorite spot! Took my 12 year old niece there for Valentines Day (a day early) and it was the perfect valentines dinner!
This is our favourite restaurant in the area by far. It never disappoints and whenever we take friends they are always equally impressed and surprised. We always intend to go more often but they get booked up so you need to book in advance. We have already made another reservation for next month.
Our dinner was scrumptious! Service spot on. And ambiance was fabulous. We absolutely love this place every time we come.
Excellent experience with both service and the quality of the food. Celebrating my wife's B-Day. Very cozy and comfortable with a relax atmosphere. Goat Cheese Salad was customized to have romaine lettuce, vegetable soup had a tomato base flavor that was very flavorful. Filet Mignon cooked rare and was extremely tender and paired well with red wine reduction.
Chef Julie, thank you very much for making the special dish of Oxtail with Polenta and making the dining experience special. We learned that you had made three of which, one was enjoyed by another customer leaving two. My wife enjoyed it so much that we did a take out and took the other home to have the following night. By far, one of the best Oxtails we've had.
We will highly recommended your restaurant to friends and family and look forward to our next visit.
Everything is delicious. Service is excellent. Must try all of their appetizers because they are very good.
The co-owner who was also our waiter was excellent. We loved everything from the atmosphere, how we were treated from the moment we sat down, the food was exquisite.
We were very pleased with our experience. The food was delicious and the service was pleasant but unobtrusive. A lovey local spot.
Besides a bit of pulled up rug that I almost tripped on getting into my booth, with the glass shards in the ripples that was left there for a bit, the food, atmosphere and service were great!
The restaurant was very nice. There was only one waiter, but, he was good at his job. He was personable and professional. The food was tasty.
Always impressed with the service & food-
This our special go to place in Hayward. Beautiful on the outside and inside. Great service, a one man Superman. Always great food! 👍
I would have given this a 5-star dining experience except for the service. When we seated, we were not greeted with the usual hello, how are we this evening, here are your drink menu and dinner menu, etc. but nothing. We were handed the menus right away and the waiter just left. Took him at least 15 minutes to come back to our table and asked for our drinks and appetizers. No small talk or anything. Very straight-forward what can i get you to drink and appetizers.
Love the food.. good wine.. nice ambiance.. with great company = Perfection 😊
Hidden gem near downtown Hayward! I’ve been to a LOT of restaurants... San Francisco, Oakland, East Bay. This place is up there with the best of them. Incredibly friendly service, best Ribeye I’ve had in some time and a lovely atmosphere. Hands down 5 stars.
We love EVERYTHING about this restaurant! It's great!
Overall it was very good. We had a couple of minor issues with our food ( my steak was undercooked, one of my dining companion’s food was so hot it burned his tongue). I was disappointed about how these minor issues were handled.
Hidden gem in Hayward. Will definitely come back and recommend to friends. Servuce was great . Food is good and always arrives on time
Great location, parking, food, drink, and ambiance.
Our favorite restaurant in Hayward.
I had been there once before a long time ago, so decided to take my Mom there for her birthday (there were four of us). We ordered the warm goat cheese salad, wild mushroom bruschetta, prosciutto wrapped prawns, rib eye steak (it was huge), the rack of lamb and the pan seared scallops and everything was delicious! For dessert we had the flourless chocolate cake and the bread pudding and we were happy with them but it seemed that we all preferred the bread pudding over the chocolate cake. The only thing is that there is only one waiter/host so he doesn't have time to check with people as to how everything is going; and it might be a bit slower when it gets busy.
We have been going to Neumanali for several years and it never disappoints us. The food is always exquisite. I had their double cut pork chop which was perfectly cooked and quite large; my wife the scallops, her favorite. The wine list is not extensive but reasonable. Service is excellent: friendly and fast. The setting is quiet, cozy; perfect for a couple or foursome.
The only thing I would alert you to is parking is limited.
Very good service. Attentive and polite. Recommend the mushroom brushetta and clams. Lovely atmosphere.
It was ok. The food was good, service was just ok. There was only one waiter and he was not very attentive and had no personality.
The place is cute! Great for a romantic date. Lamb chops were very tender and tasty. The Ribeye was so juicy. They key us split the oh so yummy and warm goat cheese salad. Will have dinner here again!
As always, this is one of our FAVORITE restaurants in Hayward. The food was great and the service is always exceptional. The atmosphere is lovely and this is truly a super place for a nice meal.
Really great! Food was really good and ambience as well!
Goto place in Hayward ! Very comfortable. Felt right at home.
We went for dinner on Saturday, the service was attentive, but not rushed. We had a filet and the rib-eye. They were well prepared with tasty accouterments. We will definitely go back.
The food and space are wonderful.
What a great little spot ! Nice and quiet. I will go back.
We've been to Neumanali 4x and each visit has been quite good. The food represents the best that Hayward is truly remarkable. Beyond the food, the wines that I have tried, are reasonably priced. Neumanali is on our "go to" list.
Very pleasant experience all around. Oddly, there was no soup of the day available because, according to our waiter, “it didn’t turn out the way they wanted it.” In addition, when I ordered the duck, the waiter returned to the table and said something about the duck not being “right,” or something like that. I was so surprised by the remark I didn’t pursue it further. However, the rack of lamb I opted for was excellent, so I was happy. Couple of odd remarks/incidents, in my experience, but I guess they follow a policy of full disclosure. The other diners in our group were equally happy with their orders.
The food was OK, and only slightly disappointing compared to other restaurants having similar price points. Waiter was very courteous and attentive.
It is always a pleasure to visit. Ebrum is always very attentive. The food is marvelous. We tend to choose this restaurant to celebrate.
This is our second time at Neumanali. Loved it again just as much as the first time. The food was outstanding & the atmosphere cozy. Our friends loved it as much as we did. We will definitely be back. The sauce that's on the clams is the most delicious sauce I've ever had. Can't get enough of it.
The items I ordered, clams and chicken, both had rather heavy sauces. I was not expecting that and was disappointed in that the sauce buried the flavor. The other diners were OK with the fish and the pork entries.
We have visited this restaurant several times now. Is a beutifull small restaurant with a lot of charm and romamtic ambiance. Perfect for romantic dates or even business dinner. Food is very good, specially for the price! The one gentleman doing it all is very eficient which I applaud, but maybe adding just one more person to the staff could improve service.
parking a bit hard to find, if you havent been there before its a bit hard to find. Food was good not remarkable price seemed a bit high,, $100 for dinner with just two drinks. Waiter was very attentive and prompt
