“WoW”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

Great dessert, great staff, great place to end the night. We visited because we found a Groupon for their four course dessert special. It was awesome. I would definitely return. The cooking area is out front, so you can see your delicious dessert as it's made. Such a good deal and a great location.

“Dessert!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

We had coffee drinks and shared the dessert sampler at Finale Park Plaza and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. On a separate occasion we went for a light dinner and were not as satisfied with the food. The service was great both times, but Finale's desserts are where they shine.

“Good for Dessert not for Meal..”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

My wife and I were staying at a hotel nearby and wanted to grab a quick lunch. We walked by and thought we would enjoy a sandwich and a nice dessert. We both ordered Turkey Club, and neither one of us was impressed. To be honest, I can get a better sandwich at a number of other local establishments. But, not deterred we still tried some dessert, which was Fantastic. My wife enjoyed the Whoopie Pie, and I had one of the numerous chocolate pastries. If you are looking for a decedent treat, this is the place! Just don't stop here for a meal.

“Good Desserts”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

We got a couple of desserts for take-out from here. We tried the Boston Cream Pie, which was okay. We also got the tiramisu and creme brulee, which were excellent. The price was a little expensive, but was worth it.

“Extremely Disappointed”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013

We finished a long day of sightseeing. We had come back from dinner and decided we wanted dessert. We had walked by this place on several occasions since it is near our hotel. The reviews were very good as well. We were seated quickly. After that, the experience deteriorated quickly. The server took very long to greet us, take our order, check on how we were doing and bring our check. The deserts were ok, but very overpriced. I believe in paying for quality, but this was ridiculous. Our total bill for three desserts and hot chocolate was equal to dinner at a moderately priced restaurant.
