Best selection during our trip to Charleston! Great menu choices, and excellent service. A little noisy though and difficult to migrate from table to front exit.

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.

We went for a Father's Day dinner and the meal was terrific, ambiance was very nice and the waiter was excellent, but it's a bit pricey. We had an issue with the sun in our eyes inside the restaurant during dinner.

We had a wonderful time at Blossom based on a recommendation. The food was delicious and our server Jacob was wonderful. He kept the flow at the right pace, he seemed to appear when we needed him but wasn't overly checking on us. We really enjoyed our dinner here.

I cannot state how amazing my dining experience was. After walking past and browsing their menu numerous times this vacation my girlfriend and I finally decided to try it out, and are mad at ourselves for not trying it sooner. The food was phenomenal, cooked to perfection and served in a timely manner at an affordable price. Mark, our server, was great, not rushing us out the door even though we noticed we were his last table. A definite must try.

We are a local family and this was our first time at Blossom. A beautiful location with an easy Charleston casual atmosphere that we really enjoyed. Our server, Cory, was knowledgable about the menu and specialty cocktails. We appreciated his expertise and opinions. We've already decided on a return visit in the near future!

We went to Blossoms prior to a Spolleto event. It had been years since we had been there and thought we would give it a try. Food was good, service was good. Was not the best experience though since they sat us at a table that had the sun beating in our eyes. Really need a shade on that ceiling glass for the late afternoon. All in all very consistent and will go again.

Have been dining at Blossom for 20 years. It never disappoints.
our waitress was nice, but very slow - not very attentive 3 scallops in my meal was on the skimpy side, however they along with everything else on my plate were fabulous! my dining partner loved her fish

This was our last dinner before leaving Charleston, and it was a good choice. I really want to give Blossom a 5 Star, but I can't because they were sold out of my favorite fish. I was excited to see pecan flounder on the menu, but they were sold out by 530 PM. I guess I don't understand how any restaurant by the ocean sells out of fish? But, the golden tile was excellent. My wife ordered salmon, and it was also excellent. One glass of wine, 1 app, 2 entrees, and 2 deserts was $120 after gratuity. Excellent food and service.
A friend and I met here for dinner. Both the food and service were very good. My friend is vegetarian and the server was very helpful at providing her with some options to accommodate her needs. I had the scallops which were well cooked and very tasty.
First Time at Blossom
We arrived at Blossom early (5:30 reservation) in order to make a show at a nearby theater. We have often eaten at the sister restaurant Magnolias, and the food and service there is impeccable. Although the restaurant did not appear to be that busy the service was very slow. Our waitress kept reaching across the table in front of us to serve our food, drinks and cutlery. This resulted in a huge spill of beer and coffee onto her tray, the tabletop and the pants leg of one of our friends. She needs to move around the table and serve from behind and next to the person she is trying to serve. I think we will stick with Magnolias from now on.

Dined at Blossom around 7:30 on a Sunday evening. We made reservations but it was not crowded. I had the She Crab soup and Spring Vegetable Flatbread Pizza. It was good, not great. My fiancé had the Potato & Leek soup and Shrimp and Grits. He really enjoyed both. Our waiter was kind and did a nice job. However the host and hostess were a little flat in greeting us, and did not seem organized. When we left they were both standing at the bar and did not acknowledge us. I read other comments about issues with reservations and such. It seems the front of house is an area that needs improvement. Overall I would go back for lunch or something light.

The tuna and coconut rice were amazing! Great service and friendly staff! Definitely a must visit!
Best meal so far.
Our table was ready when we arrived, so we did not have to wait. The entire meal, from soup to dessert, was wonderful. Our server was friendly, the atmosphere was festive with several large parties. I gave four stars for ambience due to the smoke from the wood fired oven being trapped in the dining area.
Very good food diluted by poor service
My wife and I dined at Blossom on Monday May 30th. Granted it is Memorial Day, but the service was totally off. We walked in for our 8:00 pm reservation, and when we gave our name we received a blank stare from the hostess. A second hostess then seated us with a rather curt "this way." Our waiter arrived and said "what do you want to drink." When it came time to tell about the specials he said "we have drum-something," fumbled around in his notes and said "yeah, it's drum fish." No plates were provided for the shared starter, and we never received plates after requesting them. Waiter insisted on calling my wife "Miss" throughout the evening. Entrees were delivered to the table with the same finesse as one would receive in the chow line of a state prison. When it came time for desert, the desert was plopped down in front of us. The table top has no linen, and had an oily sheen from the previous 2-3 turns of the table. The kitchen staff should have a real problem with the front of the house staff, as the food quality was excellent. Fish was cooked to perfection. Everything was delicious. The most pleasant interaction with staff was when our parking ticket was validated. Come for the food - just expect disinterested service.

Delicious food...tho 20 min wait for our reservation was frustrating.
Slowest service ever
Made reservations well in advance for 8:00. Arrived a few minutes before. Did not get seated until 8:50. At 9:20 we had still not been served. Food was good but Will not recommend due to the extremely slow service.

Great variety of food choices and everything is great. Service is top notch
New city-vacation with friends
Blossom was recommended by friend and it did not disappoint. Delicious entries got raves from each member of our party. High on our list to go back for another great meal.
A little noisy
We enjoyed the food but the setting was a little noisy for our taste. When we arrived, we were about to be seated in between two full tables. We felt like they were cramming us in between them and the sunlight where the table was was going to blind us. We asked for a different table and they obliged. We thought the food was very good and enjoyed it.

We were visiting Charleston on vacation and needed a nice restaurant for dinner. I looked your restaurant up online and it seemed nice, so we decided to try it. It was a lovely experience and we enjoyed it very much. Recommend highly!
