We don’t get to Newberg OR very often, but Subterra is a MUST for us. Friendly staff, excellent food selection and quality, and great wine choices. The subterranean setting is charming and attractive. We enjoyed very tasty soup, fresh/crisp salads, and superb entrees.

We went in on a recommendation from our B&B owner. We had no reservation although they are recommended. They seated us with pleasure. Our waiter was upbeat and happy. Food was wonderful as well as the wine.

Subterra, as the name implies is a Cellar Restaurant. A bit of a surprise in Pinot Vineyards, but the wine list and menu are way above average. We initially were surprised to see limited seafood choices on a short menu, but were assured by our...More

Extremely casual. Long Beach is a resort community. We were in shorts and t- shirts and fit right in, however there were folks dressed for dinner as well. Comfortable atmosphere across the board.
