Blossom Ratings and Reviews

We ate at three restaurants in Charleston this trip. Food was good, but I had blackened catfish which was good, but it was covered with cheese sauce. My wife had shrimp and grits which she said was good. We ended up sitting in a corner when there were tons of tables available. Waiter was okay but was sort of lethargic. He did his job and did not disappear and he received and 18% tip instead of 20%.

Waitress was very nice, but food was incredibly disappointing. Scallops & shrimp tasted they came from the freezer section of Sams or Costco. The tables were also set with bread plates & butter knives, but we never saw bread served to anyone. Will not be back.

Almost perfect experience. Greeted by a friendly hostess, and then our server. He was friendly and attentive. He brought our drinks with some of their fresh baked bread, which was divine. Our food didn't take too long and my husband and I enjoyed everything. I'm a light eater, so I ended up taking a lot home, and our server seemed fine with boxing everything up. The manager visited our table and we could honestly say that everything was great. We will definitely go back! Oh yeah, don't forget the free parking!

food was quite good, but we were disappointed when our server Darcie brought out the apple crisp and the topping was charred, so much that you could smell it. the manager did get us a replacement but we felt it should've been discounted, as it should have not been sent or delivered to begin with.

I have eaten many times at Blossom and have never been disappointed. This trip was once again a delight to my taste buds. My wife had a grouper dish with fresh vegetables and I had their Seafood Gumbo and it was perfect. Next trip to Charleston will see us there again.

Our first visit to Blossom and it won't be our last. The food and ambiance were five star. The noise level was high but tolerable. My seafood cobb salad was full of fresh shellfish and greens. My son and husband both had the scallops which were excellent. Try it, you won't be disappointed!

We sat outside. It was a beautiful night with a cool breeze. Our waitress was amazing and offered suggestions on what to order. The crab,spinach and artichoke dip was AMAZING! I don't think you could go wrong with anything on their menu! I would recommend to anyone who is visiting Charleston to check out Blossom!

This is one of our favorite restaurants in Charleston, but our experience was disappointing. Our waiter did not take our drink order after we were seated and was very inattentive from the beginning. When he did finally come to take our order, he didn't write anything down. Consequently, one member of our group did not receive his drink and he also received the wrong entree. The waiter seemed very distracted and uninterested in providing good service. The food was good, but the service was definitely not up to par.

Parking on the street is going to be a challenge. We happened to drive by the restaurant's own private lot which is shared with it's sister restaurants. We parked in the lot and it was FREE! You will have to get your parking stub validated in the restaurant.

We went for Thanksgiving. We were able to pick from the menu, which was nice. My husband and I did not want to have Turkey. We started with the Prince Edward Mussels which were very good. My husband had the Steak Oscar which was very tender and tasty. I had the grilled scallops with shrimp....great flavors. Service was very good considering how busy they were for Thanksgiving. Will go back.

We have enjoyed Blossom on several occasions. We have had the best soft shell crabs ever in the spring. This time was for Thanksgiving, which is a bit of a challenge if you don't want the traditional fare. They attended to the details with special butter for the special bread, warmed plates, local food, all with excellent service.

We enjoyed our Thanksgiving dinner at Blossom. Skipped the traditional turkey and mashed potatoes on the menu and opted for seafood. Both meals were outstanding and service was outstanding especially considering how very busy things were on Thanksgiving day. This is a somewhat casual dining experience with great food. If you like a little more formal and upscale dining then the sister establishment, Cypress, right next door is also a great option.

As always, the food was very good. The wait staff seemed especially busy even though the restaurant was not full. Our only complaint was that the food was not served hot which makes me wonder how long it had been sitting there waiting for the server to pick it up. But very good meal otherwise and a pleasant waiter.

When we arrived for dinner we were greeted promptly by our server, Rachael. She did an excellent job. We ordered our first rounds of drinks and they arrived quickly and accurately. We all ordered appetizers as well as entrees. I ordered the she crab soup. It was ok. Nothing special about it. It wasn't that hot and the soup was starting to "break". When my entree of Mahi Mahi arrived it had been overlooked and was starting to dry out in the middle. The rice was adequate that came with the Mahi. I would most likely go back and try some different options from the menu.

We ordered the Crab Louie salad - a $20 appetizer - and were sadly surprised to get a decent sized patty of crabmeat smothered in Russian dressing. Instead of the promised avocado they had substituted watery guacamole. The Bibb lettuce underneath was not consumable. Our entree, the $32 Ahi Tuna, was unappetizing and bland. It ranged in color from light grey (around the edges) to purple in the center. There were no roasted tomatoes and the spinach accompaniment was simply a scoop of boiled spinach. The server was not very attentive. The acoustics were horrible. And all that for over $100 without drinks or dessert.
Everything was above average - not five- ...
Everything was above average - not five-star, but very, very nice. Beautiful building and ambience. Easy lighting. The she-crab soup was the best we've ever had! Although he needs a little more wine-pouring practice, our waiter did a good job. There was some time when he should have checked back with us sooner, but that's better than too much hovering. All-in-all a nice dining experience.

Seafood was the main attraction that drew us here. Tuna Poke was chewy? A new one for us, oysters were not fresh and stuck to their shell. She crab soup was too thick and salty. We ordered a seafood sampler and the shrimp were overcooked and gummy, in other words, old... Very disappointed. Great location though and a pretty patio setting.

I had chargrilled grouper. It was extremely salty. so much that I didn't bother to finish it. The grits that came with it were also over salted. My husband had the blackened Grouper. His was better, but also over salted. My daughter had a shrimp and scallop dish, which was quite good. Very disappointed in the our two dishes, and with so many options in Charleston, doubt we'll return...
