$20 for $40 Groupon today Sel de la Terre - 6/16 - Boston & Natick

threedogs Jun 16, 2011 05:44 AM

This is for the Back Bay location and Natick. I've never been to Sel de la Terre, so I was thrilled at first. I do remember reading some negative stuff, so I did the usual search.

Oh dear. Lots of negative experiences related here, esp. for the one in the B.B.

Has anyone gone to the Back Bay location recently (hopefully w/some good experiences!), or does it seem as though I missed my chance to try Sel de la Terre when it was really, really good? From the sound of the reviews here,one might think that they are trying to boost clientele at the two locations that aren't doing very well (pullman loaf bread??? REALLY??)

Going to wait on this a bit, til I hear back from my esteemed Chow-colleagues.

    I'm glad to see this deal is back. Just bought one (it will be our third). I would have purchased more but the short time to expiration is a challenge for us. We'll most likely use it for brunch which is very yummy (IMHO) though perhaps not the best value without the Groupon. The caveat to all of this is that we will have to steel ourselves to endure the poor service at the BB location. I have been to the waterfront location in years and never to Natick but the service was truly terrible the last time we went to BB and semi-terrible the time before that. I'm ok with that because it can usually be rectified with a civil discussion or complaint. For us the food + the groupon savings make this deal worth it. YMMV.

      Is this from Groupon? The deal I see today is for some laser hair removal thingy

            Now to figure out when I want to go - and what to order. I keep looking at the menus (even though the caveat is that the menu changes - a good thing to me), since I take forever making crucial, important decisions... esp when it involves -hopefully- delicious foods. And considering some of their special events... Anyone have any thoughts of what they do best?

        I've had some very good experiences and some just ok experiences; never any bad ones. If you've never tried the place, what better opportunity than with the groupon promotion?

          I went back in mid-March and had a fantastic time. The meal was excellent and the service was great too. As a side note though, this was my first visit ever to Sel de la Terre so I don't really have anything to compair it to.

          Definitely a thumbs up in my opinion.

            Thanks everyone for giving me your opinions! I decided to take the plunge & give it a try. :D It's a decent deal - Blumie, you're right - what better time to try it!
