"The table we were given, was against the back wall....for two people... Tables there are too close to that rock wall and block a persons energy when you sit against it, especially when the one is next to the large window... Felt as if we were placed in a corner, a tight corner. Replace this area with the nice looking booths, like the ones you have in a different location against the wall... We request a change and we got it..."

"We were a group of girls who have not seen each other in months. The noise level was so high that it was difficult to talk at the table. The food was OK as was the service. I was a bit disappointed given all of the choices to consider in Charleston."

"This used to be one of my favorite places to eat in downtown Charleston. I took my new to Charleston boyfriend here and I had raved about it to him. The service was ok. It was busy but we sat outside where our server didn't have that many large tables so not sure why he struggled so much. The fried green tomatoes were very good. The butter served with the bread also good. The fact I'm using the butter as a positive lends to the notion that this review is about to go down from here. I ordered the pork tenderloin wrapped in prosciutto served on goat cheese grits with spinach. The grits were very good. The meat was very tough..hard to cut and chew. The flavor made me think it was old. My boyfriend ordered the flounder. He said the flavor was good. But it was just the fish on the plate with a handful of parsley dropped on top. And at $29 I would think it would come with at least one side if not better presentation. Very disappointed...Won't be coming back anytime soon."

"My family and I had lunch and brunch here last week and loved both meals. The restaurant has a very pleasant interior and a cute outdoor patio if the weather is nice. The staff was very friendly on both occasions (both the hostesses and waiters). The food was excellent!
For brunch we had the huevos rancheros and the chicken and waffles. Both were delicious. The chicken was breaded with crushed pecans, which really made the dish exceptional. For lunch we shared the she crab soup (very good) and both had the lobster roll. This is one of the best lobster rolls we have ever had (and that's coming for people who visit New England over the summer every year). Big chunks of lobster, yummy buttered roll, and just the right amount of mayo. The broccoli/pistachio salad on the side was also delicious.
Overall a fantastic restaurant with some of the best food we ate in Charleston all week. We're looking forward to coming back the next time we're in town!"

"Very pleasant venue for brunch. Creative menu with good options but not overly ambitious. Service is good and attentive. There is a small outdoor eating space but the inside space is light and airy so you really do not feel closed in. Our food was plentiful aqnd not outragiously large portions. A very pleasant experience. We will return."

"Blossom is a great spot for good food, nice atmosphere and easy access. Everything we've ever ordered has been very good. Parking next door is a plus for downtown dining."

"Dined at Blossom in their courtyard area. The weather was perfect and, despite the adjacent parking lot, the court yard was very quiet and the high wall with ivy and koi pond made us forget that we there we were in a bustling area. The food was sensational, from start to finish. Highlights were southern fried chicken, which was light and perfectly tender, and shrimp and grits. The grits, especially, were very tasty and the only draw back for me was that the gravy was a bit salty, though still delicious. Upon mentioning this to our server, Darcy, she graciously asked whether I'd like something else prepared, then a manager stopped by our table a minute later to express concern over the saltiness and, again, to find out whether I'd prefer a different entree. I declined as the meal was still delicious despite my apparent salt sensitivity and I continued to eat the shrimp and grits sans gravy.
After dinner, we were offered a fresh raspberry sorbet, which was also very tasty. We moved to the bar area for a drink on the way out and the bartenders were both super friendly and chatted with us about upcoming drink specials they were in the midst of experimenting with.
Overall, the food and staff were excellent and we'd happily visit again!"

"We spent four days in Charleston attending the Private Homes and Gardens Event. We had reservations for each day which included all of Charleston's finest restaurant. For lunch, we came to Bloosom. Since it was misting rain, we didn't get to sit in their lovely courtyard, but the inside was fine enough! We began with two appetizers....Fried Calamari lemon horseradish aioli and an order of fried artichoke hearts. Both were lightly battered and lightly fried. The calamari was more greasy than was the artichoke pieces. We also asked for a cocktail sauce to spice things a bit more.
For a lovely lunch entree, we each ordered the Crab Louie Salad: of butter lettuce, avocado, asparagus, cherry tomatoes, hard boiled egg, Louie dressing. I do this dish myself and rather than putting a purée of avocado in top with quickly turns brown, I find it best to serve the avocado in chunks on the top. Still good, but not a pretty presentation when the topping is gray-brown instead of avocado green. The crab was delicious and was a generous serving.
