Delicious!

Went here for dessert after dinner recently. It was a Saturday evening and we were able to get a table with no problem. The desserts were delicious (Boston creme, chocolate molten cake, and caramel molten cake) and the artistic presentation was very appealing. Our server was pretty slow and... read more

The creme brule is beyond amazing. Lightly sweetened custard browned to perfection mated with fresh berries and homemade shortbread cookies with orange zest. In all honesty, I would drive to boston from jersey just for this dessert.

My wife and I arrived on a Saturday night at 1030pm, which we figured would be prime time for a special dessert restaurant. There were plenty of open tables and we soon were able to figure out why. First, there was no hostess/host to seat us. We waited awkwardly at the door while one of the cooks told us someone... More

Nice pizza, excellent creme brûlée! Good spot to sit with friends or (like me) sit with a book and savour the menu.

We were staying nearby and were looking for desert. In addition to their seating area, there is a take-out counter. Their single serving cakes, tarts and pies were all very pretty. They were all pretty expensive too at over $4.00 a pop for a moderately small serving. All tasty too, but nothing out of this world. But - your downtown,... More

Sat outside for a dessert and coffee after dinner last night. As always, choice of cakes was wonderful. Really wicked range of sweet temptations. Sadly the latte was lukewarm and not especially great coffee. Atmosphere wasn't great; maybe because it was early evening, the workers had left and the pre theatre night crowd hadn't arrived

We stopped by for desserts & were very under- whelmed. Collectively, we got a cheesecake, Boston Creme Pastry, & cupcake. The cheesecake tasted like plastic, the pastry was rubber mush, & the cupcake was dry. Finale maybe you should put more emphasis on flavor instead of unnecessary "decoration".

Finale has a decadent looking selection of deserts. I grabbed one of my personal favorites, a tiramisu. The piece was beautiful, but small and disappointedly flavorless. Additionally, the small morsel of tiramisu was $7. I would have no problem paying for a small piece of tiramisu, but it should have tasted amazing! Unfortunately, I think this visit will be my...

On top of desserts this place provides some food. Pizzas are original but good. Pappardelle, more questionable. In general, all is somewhat sweet (a deviation due to the core business?). Desserts are excellent and keep the promise.
