    Small place with friendly people! I am not a fan of sweets, but my wife is. Plus, how can you not try cheesecake if you’re in New York? Cakes were pretty good. I only tried the plain cheesecake, but there are dozen more flavors that you can choose from. I thought the cakes were a bit small considering the price. Overall, good experience. After all, they made me finish the cake as I usually end up not finishing sweets.

    I have been returning to Elieen's Special Cheesecake for the past eight years. Personally, I have no doubt they serve the best cheesecake in America! However, I recently noticed a significant price increase.

    This was my first visit to NYC and I am a real foodie. Visited Eileen Special Cheesecake and found it real amazing. The staff is very welcoming and pleasant. We had a pineapple cheesecake which was amazing and raspberry cheesecake. I would rate the staff as 10/10. The cheesecake for the price would be 8/10. 8 is pretty good the way I rate it. So it’s a must have.

    Light and delicious cheesecake in a variety of flavors. Sizes range from mini to full on cakes at reasonable pricing. I ordered the original and strawberry topped mini cheesecake. Location is small and it can get busy with the lineup at times (we didn’t have an issue), but it’s not that long of a wait.

    Perfect for the cheesecake lover in your life! Great selection of mini bites to full on birthday cheesecakes. Prices are reasonable & definitely worth it! Best to get down here early in the day so you know you’re getting the best selection of cakes especially if you are looking for something specific. Will order from them again soon!

    DELICIOUS cheesecake and chocolate cake. You can tell they use quality ingredients. Cheesecake was just the right consistency- light and creamy. I’m not a big fan of chocolate cake but I would eat Eileen’s chocolate layered cake any day.

    We wandered around in the rain for several hours on this rainy February Thursday and it was so fun to discover this tiny shop with the best cheesecake I have ever eaten! Major bonus were the amazing employees who were so friendly and fun. I seriously cannot wait to go back someday in the future and get more cheesecake! Best ever!

    We wandered around for a long while on this rainy day in February. Then we found this place and I had read it was a great place to get NY style cheesecake. I think it may have been my favorite dessert on the whole trip. PLUS the employees made it so much better. Delish and a fun conversation. What a treat. I can't wait to come back!

    I will not trust reviews on websites anymore. There is nothing special about these cheesecakes. Way too expensive, they are small, don't taste or even look good. Just regular cheesecake nothing special. Too sweet, the one with berries, the berries are not fresh, just sticky jam. And the place definitely needs renovation! Come on what are those cheap plastic flowers in front of the window?

    The best cheesecake hands down! I was just there on Monday visiting from Houston, and she packed 3 cheesecakes for me to travel home with. They still taste just as amazing as the ones in store!
