On a summer trip to NYC, everyone had something special on their list and I'm glad my daughter had this on hers...hands down the Best!!!! Somewhat of a hidden gem and a hike but so worth it....silky smooth, creamy and perfect! So memorable... I 'm seriously considering ordering one for Christmas- $68.00- Merry Christmas to ME!

Because of what I read right here at TripAdvisor, when I arrived to NY The first place to reach for cheesecake was Eileen's, and it was The right choice. Best cheesecake i've ever had!! Smooth, tasty, light Flavor. You just can't get enough of it and would love to eat those yummy bites for hours.

Worth a little visit as part of your New York tour - the single portion cheesecakes are lovely with a cup of coffee as a snack.

Better than any cheesecakes we have ever had in Australia or Europe! These are to die for and rightly described as the benchmark for New York cheesecakes. This was definitely worth the walk to get there - so much so that after we ate the cherry and salted caramel in the store we bought a blueberry and a red velvet... More

I wanted to try this cheesecake since tripadvisor and many others said how amazing it is. The cheesecake was good but definitely not among the better cheesecakes I have had and can't hold a candle to Junior's. Go there if you only have time for one!

Such a small shop but the cheesecake is beautiful, we went and there was only one other person in there we were expecting a huge queue. The cheesecake is the best I've ever had, the New York cheesecake was nicer than the chocolate, but it's so light and fluffy, I'd defiantly go back here if we went again!

I was visiting New York, and my friend from home who lived in the city recommended me to try out this place. I am very glad she did! It was the best cheesecake I have ever had. I tried a bunch of different ones, it is my favorite dessert, but after my experience at Eileen's I am going to be... More

My girlfriend loves cheesecake. So do I. So, when in New York, you gotta have it. Anyway, this place pops up in Yelp as pretty much the highest rated cheesecake place in Manhattan. Note that they don't sell slices here, just mini cheesecake tarts. My girlfriend ordered the strawberry cheesecake (plain cheesecake with a glazed strawberry on top), and I... More

if you have had Eileen's cheesecake....than no other cheesecake can impress you...I still miss it and if I travel to new york city again...one of the reasons would be to have cheesecake at Eileen's. No one can eat just one.....
