Blossom Ratings and Reviews
I knew the prices and location were too good to be true when we were given supermarket bread, over-cooked seafood, all served in a room with deafening noise. The wood-fired pizza was soggy with undercooked dough and way too much cheese; the shrimp had been left on the grill to the point that they were barely edible and my asparagus was so shriveled that it was almost unidentifiable. While our waitress tried to be attentive, it was obvious she had too many large groups to be more than serviceable. All in all, an underwhelming introduction to Charleston cuisine.
I can only say positive comments about this restaurant. The food was amazing. I had oysters and the crab Louie salad while my husband had blackened swordfish. The swordfish was cooked perfectly which isn't easy to do and the salad was full of top rate crab meat. Our waiter was Justin and he was extremely knowledgeable and helpful. The atmosphere is elegant but not stuffy and we will definitely be back when we are in town.
The food was very good. I had a cup of Gumbo and it was pretty good. It was advertised as file' gumbo but there was okra in it. I guess somebody somewhere uses file' and okra as thickener and maybe here, but that is unusual. Nice flavor though. I added some pepper but it was a good gumbo. I had Shrimp and Grits as an entree and it was superb. Nice plump Carolina White shrimp, great grits, and a savory gravy. My companion had the classic Wedge Salad and a Filet and Mashed Pots for her entree. She was well pleased with both. It was a bit noisy but not overly so. The service was a bit slow but it was getting crowded.
Visiting Charleston on vacation. Had a great meal at their sister establishment, Cypress, the night before. The food at blossom was good, but not great. The service was absolutely horrible. Water wasn't refilled, bread cane out after appetizers, timing of the dishes coming out was bad, the wine service was sub par. Just bad. Never going back & wouldn't recommend.
I was disappointed in our experience at Blossom. First of all it was very noisy! That type of thing doesn't usually bother me, so it surprised me how much it did on this visit. There was one particular group that was very loud and it really took away from the experience for me. The service wasn't that great either. The food was ok. It would not be at the top of my list for a return visit.
We enjoyed everything about this establishment except the unruly table next to us. There was a group of 10-13 individuals who shouted and hooted at the top of their lungs. Others around them asked the management to control the situation, as did we. The manager said they were dealing with it, but more drinks continued to be delivered to the table and the commotion continued throughout our meal. We were happy to leave.
Even though I made advanced reservations, they tried to stick us in a corner behind a partition next to a wait staff station up against a wall. The large room had 8 tables open 2 against the windows overlooking the garden and the remaining in the center of the room. I had to reject the table for a better location... our party was dressed well & appropriately. It started the experience off on a bad foot.
A starter of crab with avocado on toast was tasteless until I got the waiter to bring me drawn butter with garlic. The bread was a supermarket baguette, sliced too thick. Whoever conceived this dish (as normally served) had no idea what to do with top-quality fresh crab meat and produced an utter banality.
My main course of Blue Crab Raviolis (sic; if anyone Italian were connected with this restaurant, he/she would know that "ravioli" is already plural) had no discernible taste of crab, and the sauce was watery, possibly from failing to carefully drain the boiled collard greens and/or the ravioli. This dish was inferior to what you could get from a can.
The ambience was unremarkable, noise levels moderate, clientele looked prosperous.
We had a lovely meal here on a Monday night. The she crab soup was good as an appetizer. My son, 9, had the fried shrimp and French fries. Nothing special. My daughter had the fish tacos, they were tasty. We also had the grilled shrimp with 2 vegetables and the mahi mahi chargrilled with 2 veggies. Portions were a little on the small side. Nothing absolutely blew us away. But the ambiance was nice and our server was very attentive. This is a safe choice but I probably won't be back.
My friend and I each ordered the salmon salad, which came as excellent fish on almost inedible kale, which we both commented on as a poor meal. We come there often and oder the same salad. This time it was poor, and we would not order it again. the kale was chewy and not tasty.
We went here for my wife's birthday dinner and it was easily one of the best meals we've had out in quite a while.
Started with mussels and boy howdy, were they great! It's very easy to overcook them and these were PERFECT!
My wife's Mahi was cooked perfectly and was a nice sized portion. My grouper was wonderful as well - just a tad on the salty side, but definitely not a deal-breaker! The kids meal selections are pretty standard, but as our waiter CJ said, they did have the best chicken tenders in town - and the portion was YUGE!
Nice selection of wine and the ambiance was just right. Music was not crazy loud like some restaurants you'd visit. Parking available right next door (weekends, at least) is a nice perk to boot.
This visit would definitely make me consider the other options in the this dining group.
