Had a great restaurant week dinner tonight. We got the butternut squash bisque, chorizo, duck cassoulet and mahi mahi . For dessert we had banana pudding and fudge brownie. Nice service, fairly quiet setting. All in all a great evening.

Great experience overall. Service was on point. We arrived a little early for our reservation and were seated immediately with no problem. Unfortunately they ran out of the dish I had been craving all day king, but having worked in restaurants long enough I understood completely (we did have a late reservation) during restaurant week. Ended up having the Mahi Mahi. The rice and sauce was incredible. The fish itself was good--if perhaps slightly over seasoned for my personal taste. Overall though, I'd recommend it to friends visiting Charleston!

Looking for Friday night dinner for the 2 of us and Seaford was the menu choice. Checked Opentable for Seafood restaurants, with price in mind & available 6-6:30 pm reservations. Blossoms was the choice. Surprise, 2nd day of restaurant week and some great choices on Blossoms $30/3 course price fixed menue. My choice was the Miah Miah and my wife's choice was a Cobb salad! Meals were excellent, service was outstanding, and overall a fantastic dining experience!

My wife and I were celebrating our Anniversary. We enjoyed the fried green tomatoes for an appetizer, they were wonderful! I ordered the shrimp and grits which were great. My wife had the pan seared Mahi, she said it was a little salty for her. Endre was our server and he was incredible. Overall, we had a wonderful experience!!!!

Great place for lunch! Look forward to returning for dinner. Kayla did an excellent job as wait-staff. Nice ambience and upscale menu. Gumbo was great, as was calamari & clams. Bread and seasoned butter were delicious.

Went to Blossom for New Year's Eve dinner. This was on our return trip from NY, we had visited Blossom on the way up and we're happy with the food and service. After reading reviews on how Christmas dinner was served we were skeptical. I called prior to arrival and was assured that was an anomaly and it wouldn't happen again.
When we arrived for our seating we were told they were running a bit behind so we went to the bar for about a 10 minute wait. One of the hostesses, a manager, said out table was ready. I asked to see where the table was and she said, "why". I stated that I was paying for dinner and would like to see where we were being seated. As it turned out we were seated in a nice location.
Now on to the dinner, I ordered scallops for my entree and they were superb, unfortunately my wife ordered stuffed flounder which was not very good. My wife said she didn't want to complain at the time because it was New Year's Eve. It appeared that the entire staff were in the weeds and had a tough time serving patrons. I had to ask my waiter to slow down because we were being rushed.

Overall our dinner tasted great but we were placed next to one other couple who were obnoxiously loud and also near the door where it was cold. We did not realize this at first when we sat down. For the amount we paid for our meal we should have had a better experience. The ambiance was horrible.

Overall both my wife and I were disappointed. We have eaten at Blossoms many times over the years and this was the only unpleasant time we have had. Thus my reasoning for still saying I would recommend you to a friend. "But not for New Years Eve."

If you're in Charleston, I definitely recommend Blossom. We started with the Ahi Tuna Poke, which was among the best we've had. I had the Pan Roasted Mahi, and my friend had the Grilled Scallops... both wonderful, and all dishes we would order again!

We ate at Blossom in late December when it was difficult to get dinner reservations at a fairly early hour. Our time was 7:30 (no other restaurant could seat us before 8:30) and the restaurant was packed. The noise level was terrible so that is why we'd have difficulty recommending Blossom. Talking with dinner companions was very difficult. However, our food was very good - we especially liked the lemon caper sauce we had on our chargrilled fish. Our server was attentive and was working very hard to serve several tables. Hope to try Blossom again at a non holiday time!

We love this place. This was our 3rd or 4th time and we were not disappointed. Lovely atmosphere stellar service. Great oysters. We shared a plate for a $2.50 charge and portions were generous. Always a favorite when we come to Charleston.

The She Crab Soup was amazing and would have enjoyed getting a second helping. Both members of my party had the Market Mahi Mahi and it was really good. We sat at the back of the restaurant against the stone wall and it made for a nice quiet dinner. Our waiter was friendly as was the hostess.

Overall, a good experience. The complimentary glass of champagne to recognize our anniversary was a nice touch. The only negative was that they ran out of bread, so we were not served any prior to our entrée. Not sure how that happens at a restaurant of this size and quality.

A mixed bag on the food. My wife's shrimp were delicious but my ravioli was less so. Service was good but one of our orders was mixed up. The restaurant made it good though by leaving the original and then bringing the correct. Pretty loud.

We have been to Charleston four times total. First time we went to Blossom we tried the Red Velvet Bread Pudding. Since then, that is the reason we go to Charleston... it's that good! My husband tried the Steak Oscar this time and thought it was awesome too. Highly recommend!

We made reservations for Xmas dinner at Blossom and we were really looking forward to it. Our reservation was confirmed and we arrived ten minutes early. We were told that they were backed up and that tables were not leaving at the time they thought they would. I've been in this business for 20 years and have had my own restaurants. I know exactly what happened. They took walk ins. So we waited about 30 minutes for our table. When we sat down we were told that the restaurant had run out of 3 of the items on the xmas menu. So we all sort of settled for something we didn't want. While my food was piping hot...although the mahi was kind of on the tough side (a sign that it had been frozen) my family who had the turkey and ham dinners were short changed. It was not even enough ham to make a sandwich, and the turkey was dried shreds that had been compiled together to make an order. Both complained that their food was ice cold. Mashed potatoes...cold and hard, green beans tepid. They were clearly running out of food because they'd taken too many walk ins. Also there was a great deal of confusion at the hostess stand. They were obviously overwhelmed but no one was keeping their cool. Tables were seated at wrong places and before being cleared. I know as a former restaurant owner how crazy the holidays get. We took reservations only for Mother's day and it was our lowest performing brunch. But we did not get greedy and take walk ins (outside of a designated 4 tables). We wanted the folks who had made reservations to have a good experience. We did not have a great experience. Maybe if we had WALKed In without a reservation two hours earlier we would have had a better time. All and all a fail for Blossom. we had a terrible time and I'm sure the hostess and kitchen wer miserable.

Very disappointing- went on Christmas- had reservations and wasn't seated until 45 minutes later- they ran out of two food items, which when on a limited menu, limits you even more! Service was slow and took about 45 minutes to get our food and 30 minutes to get the check- service unacceptable for a restaurant if this level - will not go back on holiday!
while we understand christmas dinner is ...
while we understand christmas dinner is different for restaurants it appeared blossoms couldn't do a decent job. our food never came (45 min wait until we inquired). when it did the vegetables of the day for holiday dinner was green beans out of a can. yuck. duke the manager was very apologetic and offered to comp our meal. we ate at the sister restaurant magnolia and it was near perfect in service ambiance food and noise level. skip blossoms and treat yourself to magnolia. night and day.
