Affordable fine dining at it best in an amazingly ambient cellar venue in the Willamette Valley wine country. The menu reflects a patchwork of complex, bold flavors pieced together from varied cuisines, brought together with classical technique. Open daily for lunch from 11:30 a.M. To 5:00 p.M, and dinner daily from 5:00 p.M. To 9:00 p.M. Extensive local and global wine and beer list, classic cocktails, small plates, happy hour weekdays from 3 to 6 with food and drink specials.

A great find!

We ate at Subterra last night and enjoyed it so much we returned tonight. Really great service and fabulous food, mostly farm to table. Candice was our server and she was outstanding.

We always like their steak salad. I should say I have had nothing I didn't like from here. It' Allen very good here and enjoy the atmosphere.

Our B&B host recommended this restaurant since I'm strictly gf. It's a little hard to find but it's DELISH. The waitstaff and chef were very accommodating with gf. It's not a gf restaurant but they know gluten and they know good food. Loved it. Will go back.

Stopped here for happy-hour nibbles after wine tasting. The Nagano Beef skewers were VERY tasty and the butternut squash and hazelnut risotto was delicious. Jamie our server was very good. My only complaint is that my friends did not like either of the happy hours wines and asked to bring in their from our tastings-- the corkage fee was $15--pretty... More

After eating at Jory the previous night, we wanted something a little less formal and expensive, but still special. This definitely fit the bill. The food was unique, the service was fast, and the experience was comfortable, casual and quiet.

Delicious lunch of Korean Beef Lettuce Wraps, Pate, Oysters and Cured Salmon. Topped off with a single bottle of bubbles, my husband and I could not have asked for a better birthday weekend. Subterra is a must in Oregon Wine Country!

We had dinner here for the second time and were a little disappointed. We eat here 2 years ago and had a wonderful meal. There is nothing wrong with the food it was very good, just not presented with any flair. Our server was just okay (young and inexperienced). Too many good places I won't be back.

This fully deserves to be highly rated on TripAdvisor. We went on a Thursday night and were surprised that it wasn't very busy. The service was great! The food was also quite tasty. We had a chicken with brown gravy and scallops. Both were done to perfection. We also enjoyed the creme brulee! We really enjoyed ourselves. It's tucked into... More

It was a good friends birthday dinner and she suggested we try Subterra for an appetizer and a drink. Neither of us couples had dined there before. As we entered the small space the atmosphere was very awkward. We were not greeted with a "Good evening or welcome"---the first words from the young ladies mouth were "do you have a... More
