End of year work break up 2011, we deserved to end the year with a bang !!! We worked for a Maori Mental Health service in Hamilton so our little bunch was a mix of 8, 3 over the hill Nanny's, our Koro lol, one of our clients, one oversized support worker that just made it up those stairs LOL so we stood out amidst the crowd haha. Was it worth the trip? Oh hell yeah, Would we do it again? Oh hell yeah!!! The entertainment was mesmerizing WOW hat's off to all you beautiful women. The host at the door took advantage of our group of misfits, I would have too if I was him lol BUT it was all in good humor. We all thoroughly enjoyed the evening, from the ecceptional entertainment to the food. Thank you

Had a wonderful night at Finale. The food was a little disappointing, but the entertainment certainly wasn't!! Fun night out!

I added a review stating that this websites rating for this restaurant was bogus. The evidence for this was that this website had stated finale was suitable for children and that the menu was ala carte. Both of these statements are false. It is an adults only venue and serves a buffet.

The administrators have since updated the information but have kept their rating at 2 stars. How can you review something that you have clearly never been to.

Also I was emailed and told my review would be put upand given a link. Since I criticized this website it appears this did not actually happen as my review is not present.

I am not impressed and do not rate this website.

If I could give this place no stars I would!

So lets say this star is for the performances because it certainly isn't for the bar or wait staff and not for the food either.

The bar was staffed with two people, one new who obviously was still learning how to make cocktails. The other seemed experienced however I don't appreciate wearing drinks, which with the way the drinks were being poured left a few patrons splashed with different drinks.

The kitchen staff should not be allowed out - to the bar yet alone the restaurant, not only was his appearance poor a good shower was in need - there is no excuse for allowing your patrons to smell such a god awful stench.

The buffet was average, admittedly I was a bit dubious after we discovered mould on a bread roll at our table. We were even more disgusted when wait staff took this bread roll, which had been split open and placed in a empty bowl, and placed it back onto the bowl with remaining bread rolls - and then left it there on the table for anyone to grab. I doubt that she could tell exactly how many people had handled the roll but obviously someone had!

There is no way I will return here and if it hadn't been for our bride to be, I would have left in the first half hour waiting at the bar to be served.

What a wonderful way to spend the evening, i laughed till i cried at the show. The cast were hilarious and really made the show something to behold. It was a nice meal with quality service but the entertainment made it an outstanding experience!! i cant wait to get back there

What a great place! Went to Finale Restaurant & Cabaret for my stag night - there were heaps of beautiful straight woman everywhere, all the guys loved it sure is the place to go on your last night of freedom.

The show I saw was the international extravaganza: wow, I can see why they won all those awards last year. Can't wait to go back, food was lovely but the atmosphere and entertainment was like no other.

I have been to Finale Restaurant & Cabaret now four times and there is no place on earth like it; it is world class and I think the guy talking about hairy men in frocks must have been looking at himself. The girls were beautiful, I could hardly tell they were men and the room was full of stag parties, hens and birthdays plus work functions.

It also won the # 1 corporate restaurant 2006 and leads for 2007. Food was wonderful and the show amazing: all the girls and the boy check this place out, Finale is hot!!!!!!!
