Blossom Ratings and Reviews
The waiter brought my experience down. ...
The waiter brought my experience down. You go to a place like Blossom for not only great food but equal service. Our waiter was lazy and uncaring. I had to stop him to ask to order wine and bread. My mahi mahi was just good. My friend's Steak Oscar was excellent. So the food... hit or miss. I expected more while may at least $26 an entree. There are MANY choices in Charleston to eat at... I wouldn't recommend Blossom. It was a definite let down.

We were very impressed with our first visit to Blossom. We used a gift card and were NOT disappointed. From the greeter to our fabulous waiter, Richard, it was a very satisfying and fun encounter. We will return for sure!

I took my friend here for a bday dinner last wed night while we were on vacation in Charleston. We arrived early and were told we wld have to wait for our time which was fine as we planned to have drinks at the bar. The bar was full so we sat at a high table at the hostesses suggestion. We were never acnowlaged in any way, so we thought maybe we were supposed to go order at the bar? No instruction or menus made it really confusing. I finally ordered and the bartender slipped together one of the "specialty" drinks but he left out the pecan vodka and did not even bother to shake it. By this time our table was ready so I paid and we were seated. It was very messy, noisy and bright overall, bathrooms were a disaster. Our server was nice but maybe too busy as she did not want to offer suggestions or anything. After the initial greet we sat for abt 15 min waiting for her to return so we cld order. The bread/butter was great and so was the food! We only saw our servers (she was training) a few times, and had to finally flag down the trainee for water refills. Overall great food but sitting right by the kitchen with an overburdened server was not a great bday dinner

We had gumbo, fried green tomatoes, Mahi Mahi, and shrimp and grits. Everything was delicious, however, the gumbo was too thick and served with too much rice. Also there was very little crab, 1 shrimp and no scallops.

Blossom is part of three different restaurants, including Magnolia's and Cyprus. We wanted to eat at Magnolia's but there were no decent reservation times. The only options we had from Open Table were 9:00 and later.
I looked at reviews and overall Blossom got pretty decent reviews so we went there. Same scenario with reservations, either way early or late, so we took the 6:15 opening. We left around 7:30 and there were plenty of tables open. So if Open Table tells you there are no tables at the time you want one, my suggestion would be to call directly before making a reservation online.
We started with their Bacon Dip and it was really good. I would recommend that.
My wife had the fried shrimp, nothing fancy and she was okay with it.
I had the brisket and sausage with mashed potatoes and BBQ beans. The potatoes were cold. The sausage was a piece about as big around as a hotdog, not even two inches long, split and grilled. Seriously, it was two little bites.
I had four slices of brisket about 4 inches long, fairly thin. Since there was some fat in the middle of the slices, it had to have come from where the point and the flat meet. The flavor was smoky, but again, very small portion. Not worth the cost in my opinion.
We split a vanilla creme brulee' that was the best I've ever had.
Our server was good, made sure we were taken care of.
Overall, it wasn't what I expected it to be.

We were in Charelston, South Carolina for a conference, ans several people recommended Blossom. The food was very good, though a bit on the higher side adequately reflected the quality of the food. Service was also very good. The restaurant was somewhat noisier than I might like but , we could talk to each other without shouting.

Went for Charleston Restaurant Week with a friend, I hadn't been there in a long time so I thought I'd give it a try, the menu sounded good. The service was good but the food was not unfortunately .....my appetizer (fried okra) was way too salty and my main course (mahi mahi over hoppin john) the two tiny hockey puck size pieces were way over cooked and dry, dry, dry !! I did however enjoy my dessert (blondie brownie w/ice cream). I hate to write a not so great review and in hindsight I should have spoken to the manager but they were starting to get busy and I was too tired at that point.

Two of us had birthdays and we were given champagne for a toast along with birthday cards signed by employees. such a thoughtful gesture! the service was comfortable and well-done. Food was delicious. conversation was sparkling. we could not have asked for a better evening.
thank you, Blossom.

We celebrated our 1st wedding anniversary here and they brought us complimentary champagne. The staff was very friendly and the food was delicious. We will definitely come back here again, especially for special occasions!

I don't know if they were having a bad night, but even with making reservations earlier in the day and showing up on time, we waited over an hour between being seated and receiving our food, and we didn't order anything unusual or with any specific instructions. We walked into a mostly-full restaurant, and by the time we received our entrees, we were one of only 3 tables left.

As a local, I appreciate the excellent food and service of Blossoms.........and have enjoyed the restaurant since it opened many years ago. In July, I hosted a group of 12 on a Saturday night. Last Sunday, I dined with my sister and her husband, and my 3 month old granddaughter!!! She was content to look out of the window at the passers-by. Our server was professional, competent and friendly. We enjoyed the salmon, steak biscuit, and vegetable frittata.......and were well pleased. Besides the food and service, one cannot appreciate enough the ease with parking in busy downtown Charleston. Thank you !!

Sunday brunch with friends. Smaller portion sizes were great- all clean plates! - and nice atmosphere. Great staff. And the food was very good. One of our group is a foodie and he was disappointed that his etoufee was really just a thin sauce rather than the rich brown roux he expected, but it tasted good. Recommend the skillet scrambler for brunch - yummy.

Our overall experience was good. I would recommend; however, you do it once and that was enough. The brussell sprouts were not cooked enough and bland. Prices were reasonable and atmosphere was casual, both good qualities.

Had dinner there on a Saturday night. My wife had the red shrimp appetizer that was the special. It was probably the best appetizer I have ever had and definitely the best shrimp I have ever eaten. It was similar to the BBQ shrimp at Mr. B's in New Orleans but better. I had the crab cakes for dinner and they were excellent, filled with crab and not overloaded with filler. My wife had the Grouper special and again it was delicious. We came to Blossom for Mother's Day and was disappointed but they more than made up for it this time. We will be back soon!

Blossom has been a favorite of ours whenever we visit Charleston, SC. Since we live in Columbia, it is fairly close and we get there often for one reason or another. Blossom and Magnolia sit on either side of their parking lot and parking is a big plus in Charleston!
