Stopped by here after a couple of drinks at a bar, as I had a terrible urge for some late night dessert. Between the two of us we had 3 desserts, lemon pie, boston cream pie and creme brulee... not like those huge slices you would find in a Cheesecake FXctory, but just nice little ones, which were so full...

It's close to Harvard Square and the desserts we ordered were delicious but the prices were crazy, I thought! We also ordered sparkling soda & quite liked it.

The Brookline location closed in Sept.. 2012. Visit the Boston (Park Plaza) and Cambridge (Harvard Square) locations for great desserts.

My husband and I went with another couple for dessert and coffee. We had a sampler with 8 or 9 mini desserts to try. They were all soooo good. You can also get after dinner drinks and craft beet as well. It is a nice place to go on a date again.

I had heard a lot about Finale and read Trip Advisor reviews beforehand. My friend and I ordered the dessert sampler with the molten chocolate addition, a total of 10 tastes. Each one was a poor rendition of what it purported to be. After all the build up, we were very disappointed and won't go back.

We went here for lunch while attending a conference at a nearby hotel. We ordered sandwiches. Mine was at first wrong. It took a while to bring me the correct one. My husband's sandwich was awful - all roll - processed turkey and avocado spread instead of avocado. My sandwich was better - bacon, carmelized onion and avocado spread. Service... More

Our family hosted a pre-wedding get together at Finale-Coolidge Corner (upper floor). The food was great, service was good and desserts were still being talked about the next day. Their management staff (Valerie & Jason) were very helpful in helping plan this event since we live out of state. When we arrived everything was arranged as planned and it was... More

I was at the restaurant on Friday January 7, 2011. I had a problem with the scallop pasta I ordered, and the manager Kim really helped me out. I end up buying a lot of dessert home to share with family. I have heard about Finale for a long time now, and even though I live in NH, an hour... More

As clueless tourists, we marched in for supper, not really looking at the menu. The place looked like a normal restaurant. But the savory food, like supper, is just a secondary thought, because this place is focused almost exclusively on the desserts. We got a couple of their savory items, and then chowed down on a gourmet chocolate-caramel dessert platter... More

Finale is very unique in Boston offering a fine selection of wine and high quality desserts! The atmosphere/ambiance is very nice and is perfect for a date or even to bring a couple friends to hang out. Their dessert selection is amazing and even their coffee is high quality. Definitely worth checking it out at least once!
