Fantastic cheesecake and really excellent service! Stopped here on a whim and wasn't disappointed! Really good value for money! We kept our cheesecake to eat the next day and they were still super tasty! Would totally visit again!!!

I'm not normally a cheesecake fan, but when in NYC we agreed to try Eileen's. First the good news. The cheesecakes were excellent. Very light. Not the stodgy fare you're more likely to get in Europe. We tried the Classic, Blueberry and Salted Caramel. They were all very good, essentially the same base with different toppings. As has been noted... More

Very large selection, good quality and freshly made. I don't think it is the best cheesecake ever but it is actually very good.

My hubby and I have really enjoyed Eileen's cheesecakes. They're super yummy and we've tried or 4 different tastes. The only problem with the place is that it isn't heated, although it has a few small tables and chairs. We would have liked to eat a couple more but it was too cold to stay, and we had planned a...

After being in NYC for nearly a full year for my daughter Brooke's cancer care, we found something magical that we wish we had found sooner. We discovered Eileen's Special Cheesecake and more importantly, the owner, Eileen Avezzano. Not only was the cheesecake she GAVE us the absolute best dreamy cheesecake you could ever imagine, but we felt like when... More

This place really did live up to the hype. We can early and it was not busy at all. I got the banana cheesecake. It was perfect. Honestly, it was everything I have ever wanted in a cheesecake. My husband got the chocolate cheesecake and even he was impressed and he is not a huge cheesecake fan.

Ordered the strawberry shortcake, thought it was delicious. Order a plain cheesecake, pretty tasty too. Overall not a bad experience. From LA so I wasnt too head over heels about the place. But i did enjoy my order. PS bring cash over charger you for credit/debit card purchase
