Blossom Ratings and Reviews
Overall ambience was good, very similar ...
Overall ambience was good, very similar to Blossom's sister restaurants Magnolia and Cypress. A bit noisy but much depends on table location. Avoid the middle row tables and request something farther back or along the walls. Food was very good but not outstanding. Potato-leek soup, calamari, mahi. However, the service was outstanding (Karen was our server) and made for a very pleasant evening. Recommended for a special occasion - just be aware of seating location.

AWFUL. I will not be returning. The service was terrible. Our waitress neglected to mention key items on the special, and when I ordered it she was surprised the fish had sausage and didn't have the couscous it came with. It took 3 tries to bring me a sub par meal that was not what I asked for. Our waitress never checked on us, and there was no apology for the mess up.

Great place for kids, but if dining with adults only, there are so many better choices. The whipped potatoes served cold, the crabcakes were the worst I have ever eaten, very thin/flat and the size of silver dollar pancakes and almost as thin. the accompanying salad was mostly chopped Italian parsley and was inedible. My wife loved her crab louis salad though. It's very loud, which is great when traveling with young kids.
If you are looking for a better spot with young kids, go to Hank's.

Not the Blossom I remembered. Dinner with my husband. Very loud, not able to carry on a conversation. Mostly families on a Tues night. Food...we took the recommendations of our server and ordered the swordfish special which turned out to be good, not so much for the crab cakes. Would not go back unless I had kids with us. Does have a parking lot next door that shares with another restaurant-that's a plus.

I have eaten at Blossom multiple times & have always enjoyed it - this time however it was...boring. The food was presented prettily, wait staff was nice, but the food was unremarkable. Fried green tomatoes w/ pimento cheese as an appetizer was tasteless - only flavor discernable was "fried." As for the wedge salad - make it at home for a fraction of the cost. No blue cheese involved, no flavor to the dressing. Company at the table was great - but our least favorite meal in Charleston

Went for brunch on Sunday around noon. Waited a while before a waitress came to our table. Service could have been better. Our table was too close to our neighbor, and the restaurant was not busy. They practically sat us on top of each other.
Havanero Ranchero entree was not good: chicken was extremely over cooked and the pork was very fatty and overdone as well. The French toast was good. I've been here several times, this was not one of their best performances.

We have been eating at Blossom's for many years now and they never disappoint! The food is always great, the service is professional and friendly, the price is appropriate. I recently had the shrimp and grits...marvelous! I would recommend Blossom's for both locals and visitors.

Lovely menu selection, especially the fried artichokes, the shrimp and grits and the fried shrimp. Excellent service and warm and welcoming ambiance! Put it on your list for lunch, dinner and their lovely delightful Sunday Brunch!

A great dinner, especially for the food allergy challenged. After being seated, our waiter (Rich) greeted us and immediately inquired about my allergy we had entered with our Open Table reservation. Upon confirming my allergy, he was able to promptly direct me to available items on the menu that were safe or could be adjusted to be safe. I was then able to order a most excellent meal. I had the Tuna with coconut rice and it was the best meal I have had out in ages. My dinner companion had the fried chicken meal (delicious) and then the peach crisp for dessert (Fabulous!!). Our entire dining experience was enjoyable. Service was spectacular and we will definitely dine here again during our next visit to Charleston.

We visited with two toddlers for dinner. Thee food was very good, my children enjoyed their pizza. The service was great, our server didn't miss a beat with the kids, cleared extra silverware and glasses out of their way and brought their food ahead of ours. Enjoyable little spot in Charleston!

The room was very warm with sun shining in our face. We had to find the hostess to get table service. Food description was incorrectly described by the waiter. We have been going to blossoms for years but will not be returning.

The she crab soup is amazing. Crab cakes are good but my wife's were very small for the price. The steak filet was also good however small and lukewarm. Don't get me wrong the food is good, I just expect more for an over $30 entree. The service was excellent and they did make us feel special for our anniversary. Complementary free parking beside the restaurant was also a plus.

Blossom was an awesome restaurant. Our first visit to Charleston and southern charm surrounded us in this delightful spot. Loved the ambience and menu selections. Happening spot in a very busy neighborhood. Staff was great and food preparation was excellent - enjoyed a lovely bottle of rose with the help of a knowledgeable and personable waitperson. Prices were reasonable and would recommend highly.
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 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.
