I went to Subterra with a large group of people. Everyone was happy with their food and the ambiance was interesting. It was underground with lovely painted scenes on the walls. However the room was pretty cold and those of us with warm clothes were really glad we had them on. They could warm up their restaurant a bit!

Three couples visiting Willamette Valley for wine tasting and buying dined at Subterra on a Friday evening. The wine steward, Jamie, I think, was very attentive to our inquiries about local Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. She went as far as allowing us to taste some of her recommendations Our waitress, Mo, was excellent. I had the Pork with Leek and... More

My wife and I stopped at Subterra for lunch after having flown from the east coast to Portland. Good food and our server was helpful not only with our food and beverage selections but also in pointing us toward some good wineries on our way to McMinnville. Cheeseburger is unusual and delicious.

We were visiting the Willamette Valley for our anniversary and wine tasting. There are few nice restaurants in Newberg and Subterra was the perfect choice for our occasion. Reservations were easy to get but the restaurant filled up quickly. While there is a casual atmosphere, it is set in an elegant decor and patrons looked comfortable in both shirts/ties and... More

After the Linfield College football game, my husband and I had dinner at this small bistro in Newberg. We were glad we had reservations...this gem has been discovered. The menu offered a selection of varied dishes served with homemade bread, soup and salad. As an option to a complete meal, small plates are offered. All the ingredients are fresh and... More

We went for lunch last week and was rated as one of the best to eat at in Newberg. The atmosphere is truly like it says, a Cellar with very little natural light. Waiter was great but ordered the hamburger with salad and the lettuce was literally brown! They served us brown salad, can no one see that? Very odd,... More

The service was professional , knowledgeable , helpful and friendly. The dinner was beyond delicious -- we both had the halibut ---, finished off with the... More
