I purchased a Groupon for $40 that I understood I could redeem for 2 prixe-fixe dinners valued at $80. When the bill came, $40 was deducted from the $80 (plus tax and wine). So we ended up paying full price for a couple of dinners which were overpriced at $40 each! We will not return. We have a lot of choices for restaurants in the neighborhood-- Louisa's, two doors down ifrom Babalu is a MUCH better value, for example.

If you want to use the Groupon to get new customers, limiting their choices to the "prix fixe" set menu is not a good idea. The menu has so many interesting choices, but to use the Groupon you are stuck with only a few, less interesting choices. Food was good, and a reasonable value, but one walks away vaguely disappointed and unsatisfied because of the very limited choices.
