Had the pleasure of my daughter's company today at this cute subterranean eatery. The lunch menu was very varied and offered something for everyone and a nice wine selection to offer as well. Not crowded at all, in fact there was only one other table with customers. The daily quiche offering was scrumptious and the accompanying salad was a perfect... More

We so enjoyed our dinner with a wonderful valley pinot after a fun day of tasting the valley's best wines. We had the scallops, halibut wrapped in potatoes, lamb shank, and the pork roast. Our homemade soups were excellent, and the salads were lightly dressed. Entrees were cooked to perfection! Service was excellent, attentive but not overbearing.The ambiance of the... More

The food was ok, but wouldn't be so impressive in a larger city. The service was great. The ambience quaint and intimate. Probably a good date place. But awfully overpriced.

We had just spent the day in the Willamette Valley at several different wine tastings and had a good lunch to help us absorb the wonderful wines, so for dinner we didn't want too much food. This was the perfect place for that as along with what looked to be a tempting full menu, they offered small plates that could... More

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
