Wow, how do you decide, oh yeah you don't you get it all.

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... read 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

The finale is dying, it's easy to tell. Their restaurant is empty almost all day long, the products are not as fresh as they used to be, because they have no customers and it's just sad to see how this place is going down the drain. It used to be a favorite of mine in Boston and their desserts are... More

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.

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...
