Blossom Ratings and Reviews
Blossom is one of my favorite Charleston ...
Blossom is one of my favorite Charleston restaurants and have visited many times since moving here 4 years ago often bringing out of town guests. The seafood is well prepared, there are always a few unusual items on the menu (the fried green tomatoes is a different preparation) and also has menu items for the traditionalist. A plus is the complimentary parking in the lot next door on Bay Street.

Maybe it was an off-night for Blossom since we were drawn to it by all the other great reviews. The "peach sangria" was syrupy and tasted like 1/2 cheap white wine with 1/2 peach Schnapps with absolutely no other fruit flavor; it was so bad we sent it back in exchange for wine. My flatbread pizza was a safe choice, a basic crust topped with cheese and a few veggies plus a handful of salad with balsamic dressing on top of it. My friend's steak was flavorless except for the mound of herb butter on top of it. It was overshadowed by about half of an entire head of steamed broccoli atop a spoonful of mashed potatoes (both also flavorless). The service was just okay.
We have been coming to Blossoms for over ...
We have been coming to Blossoms for over two years and unfortunately, the service and atmosphere is no longer appropriate for dinner. Extremely loud, catering lots of "large" bachelor parties. We had to wait over one hour for our food to arrive, table without table cloth (while other tables had them); bus-boy and waiter ignored that our starter plates were empty (although we requested to have these items moved). Spoke with Manager on Duty, she was very apologetic and did not charge for entrees. Although we thank her for her gesture; the best solution is to re-arrange the area, where it can cater both regular dining customers like us and large parties at the opposite end. Additionally, improve customer service by teaching their employees body and facial language expressions. We don't think we will return at this location any time soon.

I have been to this restaurant before and it was wonderful. This time the food and service was fabulous, but the environment was too hot. This visit it was a summer evening and the wood fire grill was so hot it heated up the room. The flames were felt on our bare arms. We could feel it three tables in. The only appropriately cool place in the restaurant was the ladies room. The thermostats outside the ladies room indicated that the dining room was 83 degrees. We could not finish our main dishes because of the environmental heat. The wood fire pizza oven seems to be the issue. There needs to be more ventilation. When we finished at 7:30pm, it was cooler outside than inside. One of our party of four was elderly and became ill due to the heat. My next visit will be in the winter until the heat issue is resolved.

Had a wonderful meal. My date had a potato crusted Halibut that the server did a good job of describing. I had the filet which was cooked beautifully. Food was very good.
Had an awesome server. I work in the business and recognize great service and very friendly and knowledgeable as well. I am not totally sure but I believe her name was Lacy.
Overall a great experience and I would ask for the same server again when I come back.

Delicious crab tostadas, perfectly cooked scallops and a wonderful risotto. Crab cakes too oily and very little crab meat (mostly bread crumbs). Raspberry sorbet was half-melted when served and seemed like raspberry sherbet more than sorbet.

Thomas was our server. Food and service great. However place was steaming hot. Invest more in ac. I know it was 98 outside but that's not uncommon in the south in July and August. You will pay dividends with better hvac and keep you a step ahead. Not sure I would go back there in summer

We had a delightful lunch. We came in early & it was nice & quiet. The server was just okay. He was knowledge of the menu but did not offer bread & did not bring any. Was attentive otherwise. Was great food. Would dine here again which we have.

This should not be just a tourist oriented restaurant. While the menu is somewhat limited, that allows the chef and kitchen to do what it does well. The potato leek soup was well prepared and very flavorful, but the characteristics of the dish make it far more suitable to any time of year besides 90 plus degree days. Perhaps a bit more attention to the season's impact on dishes is in order. The crab cakes were a good recipe, again very well prepared, but they could have benefited from a sauce, such as a remoulade sauce. Before the dish was gone, it had become a quite dry and a bit crusty. A sauce would have contributed to the dish being as enjoyable toward the end as was the first bite. Our server, Summer, was very professional and very knowledgeable about the menu. She was a delight throughout our meal without intruding. We'll go here again for a mid-week light dinner.

inattentive service marred evening. single diner, ignored for more than 5 minutes upon being seated. out of sparking water at 730..really? soda,water substituted which,was flat. gin blossom martini was served slmost room temperature and had no rosemary infusion bottled, not fresh lime juice. food good: arugula salad, crab cakes, though cakes were almost burnt having been, seemingly, resauteed. poor overly sweet and heavy dessert choices (which I did not order). very disappointing overall.

Food was great and the manager was personable. We must have had a new server because he seemed nervous and unfamiliar with the menu so I knew to be patient. He fumbled with the bill, told us he fixed a price because the computer was wrong, but when he brought the bill it was still incorrect. It was only $2 so it wasn't worth sending him back for another 10 minutes. He needed to shadow another server for a couple more days. Wasn't impressed with his service which has no reflection on my opinion of the restaurant.

Went for our first wedding anniversary. The staff was great, had a nice card and some champagne waiting on us, service throughout was excellent as well! The food was good overall, the pork belly app was outstanding, my wife really enjoyed her entrée, mine was ok. All that being said we will definitely return in the future.

Could have been so much better. My sons crab cakes were good and my wife got teh special(red fish) and it was okay. I got the brisket and it was not good at all. Very dry and the beans were off texturally. The wings as an appetizer were great. My question is how can you snoke your wongs with great flavor but the smoked brisket had none. Also, at a restaurant where you spend 50ish per person, I expect to meet a mgr or owner to say hello or thank you. We saw neither. With all the great restaurants in Charleston, this one was a miss.

I've eaten at Blossom once before and I was impressed with my meal. I had forgotten about the somewhat limited menu and how pricey the menu selections were. The restaurant ambiance is not someplace where I'd consider going for a special occasion. Menu prices were high for what you got. And the menu selection was limited. I'd recommend your visiting Blossom because the food was delicious and the service was excellent. I'm just stuck on the cost of the menu items. I really thought that it is a restaurant whose menu prices are out of line.

I wanted a restaurant that would take reservations and wouldn't rush us to turn over the table. The waitress understood we hadn't seen each other in a long time and gave us all the time we wanted. Very much appreciated and I chose the perfect place that also has good food.
