Were told by other locals that this was a very upscale restaurant that was "underground". When we got there it was basically like a walk-out basement in a house. The environment was fine, but certainly NOT fancy at all. I think they were trying to be more fancy, but the building was just not able to create that type of... More

My husband and I ate dinner here while in the Willamette Valley for a getaway. Our innkeeper recommended this place as a great option for a Friday night when we failed to make advanced reservations anywhere. It is located just off the main drag in a lower level building. If you need handicap access, there is a ramp in the... More

I have lives in Newberg for 4 years and have always just driven by Subterra. What a huge mistake!!! Finally my husband and I went in for lunch and WOW what a surprise!

Subterra was within walking distance of our hotel and they recommended for the extensive wine list. We loved the food! We went back a second time and will definitely return when we are in the area. Jamie did an excellent job serving us at the bar and was knowledgeable about the wines from the local area. An awesome experience!

We recently stopped in for lunch while on a mini tour of Wine Country in Newberg. We chose this restaurant based on Yelp reviews and they were true to the word. The wine selection was awesome, the food choices were vast, and we really enjoyed the service (our server was pretty much running the place all on her own since... More

Sharing a girls weekend with friends and this place was the perfect place for dinner after a long day of wine tasting. We got the room off to the side for a great place to catch up on each others' lives - private but still with a nice view of the outside and the beautiful painted mural inside. The waitress... More

This place offers a terrific dinner at a bargain price, including soup and salad. We would return in a heartbeat.

The name is descriptive. The windowless basement setting might not be everybody, but the wine cave vibe just seemed appropriate for our first dinner while spending 5 days in the Oregon wine country. Food was well prepared and service was friendly and crisp.

Food was good not great. Very pricey. Service excellent. Staff friendly. If you need handicap friendly this is not a good choice. They do have a ramp but it is out back of the restaurant with no marking how to access it; it is really the service entrance. Unfortunately, the day we went I had to navigate a very steep... More

I am very sorry that you missed the sign at the top of the our restaurant stairs that directs you to the handicapped entrance. It is also clearly offered on our website,. And yes I am also sorry that the handicapped entrance (which is actually a very nice sloped, railed and stepless ADA-rated entrance) is in the back of our... More
