We enjoyed the atmosphere and the service was brilliant - thanks Emma.
Very good value for money and tasty food. This was our best experience of Southern cuisine so far (first time travellers from the UK so unsure what to expect). My husband loved the fried chicken - he thought he was in chicken heaven! My shrimp, rice and beans and collards was very good eating.
Thank you again for a grand time.

Good food, but very slow service. Maybe they had a too many people. They were out of bread; our meal was at least 35 -40 minutes.
On a more important note, the ladies room was super-nasty. There was water all over the sink and paper towels which were wet. The trash can was over-flowing. That, to me, is a huge turn off.

After reading recent mixed reviews, we were hesitant to go but decided to give it a try. The outdoor dining area is very nice, quiet, romantic ambiance. One of the negative reviews was the service. We were seated and then slowly silverware, water etc. showed up. No server and after 30 minutes we considered leaving. Other tables seated after us were served beverages and orders taken. However, the server did come and apologize for the delay. (he had tables inside and out) The oak smoked salmon entree and my husbands' cobb salad were delicious . It was a bit over salted yet ok. Eventually another server took over. I would recommend Blossom yet be prepared to just relax and enjoy the evening - eventually it will all be great.

My friend and I visited Charleston for the weekend and went to Blossom for dinner. The food was delicious! We sat out on the courtyard and it was lovely. Glad we stumbled upon this great find. Incidentally afterward we went to the bar at Cypress and that was very nice as well.

Food was great. Service was a bit slow. Our server was seen up front just talking while we were simply waiting for her to come back around. She didnt have many tables to wait, so i see this as simply not having her mind on her job. Otherwise all was great

Beautiful day to sit outside on their lovely patio! Enjoyed a great brunch !
Food was delicious and very happy they left the mahi mahi on
Their new menu!
Thank you Blossom for another great morning in Charleston!

They must have been having a bad night. We were seated promptly but then waited and waited for cocktails, bread and then dinner. If only our server would have acknowledged that service was slow. We waited over an hour for our meal had it not been a busy Friday evening we would have left. The staff did eventual apologize. Food was good not great. A very disappointing intro to Charleston's fine dining...

We had a special occasion with our son, whose at college in Charleston, and felt Blossom would be a great place to chat while dining on great food. Indeed the food was incredible! The service was timely and helpful, but never intrusive. Overall ambience was rather loud for this type of restaurant, but I think like our party, everyone was in a joyous mood as there was birthday party at one table, a bachelorette party at another, several 5+ groups of friends, and a packed lounge bar. But we enjoyed it immensely and recommend it for great "Southern" seafood shared with friends or family.

We had lunch today at Blossom and had a lovely experience. The food was very good and the service was exceptional. This is one of the best and longest lasting restaurants in Charleston. We used to eat here 20+ years ago when we lived here. It has truly withstood the test of time. Always a good choice.
The waiter brought my experience down. ...
The waiter brought my experience down. You go to a place like Blossom for not only great food but equal service. Our waiter was lazy and uncaring. I had to stop him to ask to order wine and bread. My mahi mahi was just good. My friend's Steak Oscar was excellent. So the food... hit or miss. I expected more while may at least $26 an entree. There are MANY choices in Charleston to eat at... I wouldn't recommend Blossom. It was a definite let down.

We were very impressed with our first visit to Blossom. We used a gift card and were NOT disappointed. From the greeter to our fabulous waiter, Richard, it was a very satisfying and fun encounter. We will return for sure!

I took my friend here for a bday dinner last wed night while we were on vacation in Charleston. We arrived early and were told we wld have to wait for our time which was fine as we planned to have drinks at the bar. The bar was full so we sat at a high table at the hostesses suggestion. We were never acnowlaged in any way, so we thought maybe we were supposed to go order at the bar? No instruction or menus made it really confusing. I finally ordered and the bartender slipped together one of the "specialty" drinks but he left out the pecan vodka and did not even bother to shake it. By this time our table was ready so I paid and we were seated. It was very messy, noisy and bright overall, bathrooms were a disaster. Our server was nice but maybe too busy as she did not want to offer suggestions or anything. After the initial greet we sat for abt 15 min waiting for her to return so we cld order. The bread/butter was great and so was the food! We only saw our servers (she was training) a few times, and had to finally flag down the trainee for water refills. Overall great food but sitting right by the kitchen with an overburdened server was not a great bday dinner

We had gumbo, fried green tomatoes, Mahi Mahi, and shrimp and grits. Everything was delicious, however, the gumbo was too thick and served with too much rice. Also there was very little crab, 1 shrimp and no scallops.

Blossom is part of three different restaurants, including Magnolia's and Cyprus. We wanted to eat at Magnolia's but there were no decent reservation times. The only options we had from Open Table were 9:00 and later.
I looked at reviews and overall Blossom got pretty decent reviews so we went there. Same scenario with reservations, either way early or late, so we took the 6:15 opening. We left around 7:30 and there were plenty of tables open. So if Open Table tells you there are no tables at the time you want one, my suggestion would be to call directly before making a reservation online.
We started with their Bacon Dip and it was really good. I would recommend that.
My wife had the fried shrimp, nothing fancy and she was okay with it.
I had the brisket and sausage with mashed potatoes and BBQ beans. The potatoes were cold. The sausage was a piece about as big around as a hotdog, not even two inches long, split and grilled. Seriously, it was two little bites.
I had four slices of brisket about 4 inches long, fairly thin. Since there was some fat in the middle of the slices, it had to have come from where the point and the flat meet. The flavor was smoky, but again, very small portion. Not worth the cost in my opinion.
We split a vanilla creme brulee' that was the best I've ever had.
Our server was good, made sure we were taken care of.
Overall, it wasn't what I expected it to be.

We were in Charelston, South Carolina for a conference, ans several people recommended Blossom. The food was very good, though a bit on the higher side adequately reflected the quality of the food. Service was also very good. The restaurant was somewhat noisier than I might like but , we could talk to each other without shouting.

Went for Charleston Restaurant Week with a friend, I hadn't been there in a long time so I thought I'd give it a try, the menu sounded good. The service was good but the food was not unfortunately .....my appetizer (fried okra) was way too salty and my main course (mahi mahi over hoppin john) the two tiny hockey puck size pieces were way over cooked and dry, dry, dry !! I did however enjoy my dessert (blondie brownie w/ice cream). I hate to write a not so great review and in hindsight I should have spoken to the manager but they were starting to get busy and I was too tired at that point.
