Excellent meal and dessert

My friend and I ate here twice while staying in the Back Bay area. We both loved the food and desserts both times! The service was slow, but the atmosphere was lovely and the food delicious!

We went into finale at 10:45, 45 minutes before they were closing. We were not even greeted with a simple "hello" from the hostess/server, instead just brought to our table. We were not offered water, or any drinks. The server then told us that they "ran out" of all molten. This is the main reason why we went there. How... More

Went here for a late dessert with the kids. The place was half empty but the service was slower than it should have been. Besides being over priced I would have expected a taste extravaganza. At an average of $13/ dessert the taste was average at best. We ordered the sampler at $28 and not one of the desserts was... More

My wife and myself and children came to have dessert last night after a Boston university hockey game as we have done several times before. This is the highlight of the night for the kids. The service to say the least was terrible! After ordering we received our dessert not how we ordered. We finally gave up waiting for the... More

i like Finale. Is one of those places with great dessert and good ambiance. I like to come here after dinner sometimes, to just have a nice cup of coffee and have a great conversation. They are also open until very late, and the staff, at least the ones i have encountered are extremly nice to me. They are patient,... More

If I had to describe Finale in one sentence, I would say: it is the art of desserts. It is our favorite dessert restaurant in Boston, and we cannot get enough of it. The desserts here look amazing, taste delicious, and make come back again and again. I would definitely recommend it to anyone coming to Boston.

After going to see the Blue Men Group and having dinner and drinks at Maggiano's, my boyfriend and I visited Finale to pick up some desserts to take back to our hotel. It was perfect because Finale was open until 12am, and was still fully stocked with the nicest looking pastries and cakes I have seen. We picked out 4... More

After an absolutely delicious dinner at Fogo de Chao my fiance took me to Finale. It was my first time. It was a Saturday night and the place was crowded. The atmosphere was ok. It was a little tight for me. We were seated in the back with 2 other tables on both sides and could barely hear each other.... More

So hard to choose - so many fabulous desserts. The chocolate lava cake is a winner. Can't go wrong with a sampler. My favorite was the vanilla cheesecake.

This visit to Finale was very different than our last one. Before attending a 7:30 show we stopped in to have coffee and dessert. We were quite surprised to find the restaurant almost empty. We had regular coffee and the molten chocolate cake. Our server suggested the larger dessert since we were sharing. The cake was warm and very good.... More
