Description: Tinas opened in October 1991. The restaurant, which seats 55 guests, has a comfortable bar, and the two intimate dining rooms are divided by a fireplace. Like many of our fellow chefs, we believe that the best food is organically grown. Our search for these foods led us out of the city and into the countryside where we work closely with a great group of farmers. We're closer to the source of what goes onto your plate, and we believe that the opportunity to cook in a wine growing region lends our food a context and flavor and experience that is unbeatable. The menu is based on the foods that our farmer/neighbors grow: seasonal, and regional. Most of the wines that we feature come from just down the road. We are committed to using the best ingredients, and our menu changes as we move through the seasons of the year. Under New Ownership since June 13, 2015, Tina's continues to be a Wine Country Standard, not to be missed. Long time, veteran employees Dwight McFaddin (22yrs), and Michael Stiller (14 years) and their wives have re-energized the Restaurant and have lured back Chef Norma Buchholz (6 yrs) to create a new environment based on all that is best about Tina's and the Wine Country of Yamhill County.

Certainly Tina's is a local's place. Many of the patrons seemed to know one another and the staff. Regardless, we were made to feel very welcome and were given a very nice table in the front window. Began the meal by stating that I had tasted sufficient wine during the day of wine touring. Our waitress suggested an excellent locally brewed beer that kicked off the evening nicely. We enjoyed an appetizer of Polenta Fries that were very unique and followed that with soup and our main course. Main courses included Pork Cheeks that had been slow cooked. These were excellent as were the accompaniments. Additionally, had the braised short ribs which were very well prepared and very tender. Great tastes as well. Great meal and I would recommend you include Tina's on your agenda should you visit the area. One note, if you make a reservation I would request seating in the front room of the facility to avoid the noise of the larger tables and the bar / kitchen.

Tina's has had a well-deserved reputation, but it took a hit today when I and 3 other guests dined there for lunch. Two entrees on the menu were not available as listed, but with changes. One, a morel, duck confit risotto was sans morels! When mentioned to the waitress the reply was: "oh, I think the kitchen ran out of them!" She comped us 2 desserts as a result. What we did get was good, even excellent, but running short on a Friday afternoon, on the early side of the lunch span! No excuse.

A friend back east raved about this place and given my other ruminations on restaurants in Oregon/Washington I was very excited. Food was good. bread was warm and crusty salad was good (nothing special) and entrees were good. we had hangar steak, salmon and duke confit risotto. One person didn't like hangar steak the other entrees were good. Chocolate souffle was highlight of the meal. as per most Northwest restaurants wine list was very good and reasonably priced. I hope tripadvisor alters their rating system to include good not just very good or average

Tina's has a great Oregon oriented wine list and our server offered great suggestions for matching wine with food. Appetizers of salmon egg rolls were nicely crisp, with salmon and a peanut sauce. This is one to share. The fried oysters were a little on the soggy side, but the oysters were not over cooked. An entree of tuna in a miso base with veggies was flavorful, although the broth tended to continue cooking the seared tuna. The beef short ribs in a chocolate sauce (think mole without the spice) was definitely in the comfort food catagory. The meal was very good, but not great and the cuisine felt a little dated. We had a nice dinner and might return on another visit. I understand winery owners tend to frequent the place.

Very cute little place and lovely competent service staff, but the food was lackluster. Based on the reviews I was expecting more.
