We went to this restaurant as a group of 8, and everything we ordered was delicious, the service very good, the atmosphere very nice, and the pricing very reasonable. Between the 8 people, we had braised shortrib, salmon, halibut, and a shoulder steak - all were delicious. Each meal comes with soup, salad and sides. We will definitely return!

Great ambiance, delicious food, and friendly staff. Subterra has a french or small feel to their restaurant. Fresh local ingredients, great wine list, incredible food, and great presentation. Add this restaurant to your list!! My favorite items on the menu are the potato wrapped halibut or the seared scallops for dinner. Lunch I recommend the Cuban pork sandwich or The... More

Thank you so much for your fabulous review of Subterra. It was our pleasure to participate in your excellent experience. However, the pictures you posted are not of our restaurant or our food! (although the bicycle-themed bathroom is uber cute!). More

Great lunch, delicious food in a semi-underground location. However with only one waitperson and one cook, be prepared for a casual adventure!

We were really looking forward to our meal at Subterra. The atmosphere was very nice and the menu was very enticing. Our small plate of Crispy Pork Belly was really good and set the stage. We continued with the bread/soup and salad courses which was all good. For our entrees my hubby ordered the salmon special. He said their to... More

My girlfriend and I were here for dinner last weekend when visiting the area, and both thoroughly enjoyed our meals. My shortrib was moist and tender, and her duck was crispy on the outside and pink in the middle- just as it should be. The menu choices were broken down into small plates, and entrees, with both of us opting... More

Our first night in the Willamette Valley and we found Subterra walking distance from our hotel in Newberg. The host was kind and full of information about the region. We had the pinot gris from the highlighted winery of the month and it was divine. My mother swooned over the halibut with the pinot noir glaze and I enjoyed the... More

We made this our first stop on a birthday weekend trip. What a great find! Our server was thorough, knowledgable and all around great. Our food was burgers and sandwiches but they were not average at all! My burger had minced bacon in it! Yum!! All six of us thoroughly enjoyed our food and a couple of us tried the... More

At first sight we were a little put off as it was a sunny day and the stairs lead down away from the daylight,,,,were we in for a surprise. Subterra was... More
