You would think that since they're all about dessert that it should be some AMAZING dessert... buuut not really! Maybe when the place opened it was good? But, it was really nothing special. We got the sampler that had 9 different things, and most of them were pretty good, but nothing I'd go back for, and nothing that was incredibly... More

Three friends- three small desserts- no drinks- $40. Quality was ok but not amazing. I would have been just as happy with Ben & Jerry's next door for half the price.

Simple put, some of the best desserts I have ever had. My favorite place in Boston is Modern Pastry, never miss it when in Boston, but time didn't allow a visit, so we stopped here and were not disappointed. I wanted one of everything, but we ended up with a Coconut cream torte, boston cream pie, a flour less chocolate... More

We stopped there for a drink after a tiring sightseeing day. The ambiance of the place is not something to remember. We were given a table next to the air conditioner which was really freezing. After a couple of minutes we asked the waitress to give us another table and she seemed rather pissed off by our request. In general... More

The desserts at Finale are beautifully crafted but lacking in taste. The staff was not very knowledgeable of the desserts and also not very friendly, given that we were the only customers on what should have been a busy Saturday afternoon for them.

Wasn't overly impressed with their desserts. We had a sampler with 6 desserts. Some were cold, some were tasteless. The whoopie pie was good as was the mousse (not included but we took it to go). There are much better places to go, especially for the price. Nice atmosphere though...

I am in Boston three or four times a year, and typically head straight for Modern Pastry, Mike's, or Cafe Vittorio in the North End. Family members suggested we try this new-ish place for after-dinner sweets. The crowds are amazing, but if my experience is typical, it isn't because of the food, it's because of the hype. The "gelato" tastes... More

Great place for an after theater drink and dessert. Some of the best desserts I have ever had and plated beautifully. For atmosphere, drinks and dessert the lounge across the street at the Four Seasons can't be beat. While the desserts are not as good as Finale the atmosphere is first rate as are the drinks and dessert bar.

My husband and I had a groupon for this dessert spot. We felt like they tried to over complicate flavors to make them seem more unique and desirable. The sorbets were overwhelming. The whoopie pie was the best. The flan was good. The hot chocolate was notable. The rest was either too sweet or too off, but its a cute... More
