A Special Treat

This is quaint fine dining in a unique location that's tucked away in downtown Hayward, and we reserve eating here for special occasions. The menu is small and offers delicious selections of unusual food that's delicious; good wine list too. We can highly recommend this charming little gem.

We chose this out of the way place to meet friends for dinner. It's intimate, nicely decorated in a gritty area of Hayward, and the food is very, very good. However our evening was marred by a rude waiter. It was not full, so he didn't appear overworked or frazzled...just a bit mean. When asked if we could "share" a... More

When they opened they were "the place to go for fine dining", now it is small portions and over priced for the quality of what you get. They have a high turn over in staff.

My wife and I had dinner at Neumanali with another couple before seeing a play in Hayward. It is located downtown in an old Victorian home. The interior has been remodeled and is very modern. The dining area is not large, so there is no noise. The is not large. The warm goat cheese salad with grilled pears and mixed... More

Neumanali is tucked away in a quiet downtown area just steps from Hayward City Hall. Its a little pricey, but worth it when you simply don't have the time or inclination to drive to SF or Berkeley for a fine meal. The inside is a restored Victorian house that is very cozy and warm. I've eaten here twice, and both... More

I ate here recently with my wife and some family members we were visiting. I had the scallops and they were wonderful. cooked to perfection and perfectly seasoned. I forget what salad I ordered, but that also was very good. someone else at the table also had the scallops and was also delighted with them. My wife, however, ordered the... More

Three of us had an outstanding dinner here. Easy to find and the service was perfect. I had the scallops and I think they were the best that I have ever had. One of the others had the pork chop - it was huge and he also thought perfect. The lighting is a little dark but we all laughed with... More

I have been there a few times with a group of friends. their food is well prepared and wines are extremely reasonably priced. If you like pork chop -- the really good ones, this is one of the two places in the bay area you should try. The mushroom (side order/appetizer) is very well made. East bay has some good... More

I never thought i'll find a fine dining restaurant in Hayward. Place is so classy. Lighting is perfect for its ambience. Very romantic for a couple. I love the architectural building converting and preserving it and made it to a nice place to dine. Food is so good. I loved everything, from starters to entree to desserts. And the choice... More
