Finale for a good end

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.

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...

The place is rather small and busy. We were lucky to get a table. We had the desert sampler which was kind of ordinary. The apple tart was OK. The molten chocolate and Manjari mousse make up for the average evening.

My family was looking for a spot to grab dessert and decided to stop in Finale. We ordered a few different desserts, including the gelato, boston creme, and peanut butter mousse. The presentation is beautiful and the food is sufficient, but by no means extraordinary. It'll satisfy your sweet tooth, but is a bit pricey.

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!
