“Yummy desserts”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2013

This place gets busy at night. We were surprised how many people were out for just dessert.
We shared a 6-dessert sampler and it was very nice. I also tried a 3-flight of port which I would recommend to any port drinkers.
A nice finish to the night!

“Sinful desserts”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

Desserts are definitely the focus at Finale. I had the proscuitto and fig pizza which was pretty good followed by the "manjari mousse". The mousse was very rich and decadent. I also took a few bites of my husband's dessert - the "seasonal cornucopia". The desserts are not for the calorie conscious - you can tell they are made with ingredients like cream, butter, whole vanilla bean, etc. While pricey, this restaurant is a fine choice for the occasional sweet treat. The wine selection includes a wide variety of reds, whites and dessert wines.

“Decadent! Spoil yourself on your vacation to Boston!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

So many options! All of them are incredible looking and the 4 I sampled were simply wonderful. Truly an enjoyable experience. Grab a few samples of their smaller versions of dessert and walk over to the Boston Garden and enjoy the sunset from a pond side bench, you won't regret it!

“Desserts only review”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

for the prices of what you're paying, one would expect that the flavor would be phenomenal, but it was quite lacking to be honest.

the only thing i would say i liked the best, and probably so because they have large stock of them on display, is the creme brulee.

i didnt like the tiramisu and in fact, it didnt taste like tiramisu honestly. the outer wall crust was too doughy for my taste and i decided to eat the surround wall to get to the insides and was disappointed at the size of the insides after the wall was eaten...

i probably wouldnt go back - was pretty let down as i wanted to experience dessert heaven...
