This is a highly-regarded restaurant so we tried it but I think they had an off night. We were seated at the table for two nearest the host. At the table right next to us, 3 feet away, was food and a straw on the floor from previous patrons. Our waitress got our order and asked if we would like... More

An overall disappointing experience. The service was terrible, the servers acted as if they didn't care whether or not my wife and I had an enjoyable meal or not. The meal was sub-par, the plate presentation looked as if the plate was just thrown together at the last second. I would not recommend this restaurant; there are too many other... More

A delightful environment, attentive service, widely varied menu offering all sorts of Mediterranean flavored dishes. Pricing is extremely reasonable. Always happy that I returned.

The food was excellent, ambiance nice, and the service first rate. Unfortunately, I left with a bad taste in my mouth. I asked if they had a house chardonnay. They did, but when we got the bill, it was $11 a glass. The most expensive wine on the menu. I had 2 glasses. The menu at our B&B said the... More

In addition to its history and beauty, Charleston is known for its many fine quality restaurants. Blossom is definitely among those in the top tier. The atmosphere is attractive and the food outstanding. Many tables are able to view the food presentation area and the wood fired oven. My only complaint, unfortunately not an uncommon one, is that, at least... More

Had been to sister restaurant Magnolia's, but this was my first visit to Blossom. Similar New Southern cuisine to Magnolia but in a more casual setting. We started with pickled shrimp and crab cake appetizers and then had shrimp and grits and mahi mahi entrees. All the food was excellent, the mahi dish in particular which was outstanding. We washed... More

A great last minute addition to our restaurant itinerary. I loved the shrimp and grits. The service wasn’t particularly attentive, but the shrimp and grits made it worth the trip.

Had trouble finding a restaurant on our visit that we could get into before 10:00pm since it was restaurant week in Charleston. We got into Blossom and it was a wonderful dinner! We sampled the fresh pizza, shrimp & grits, pasta and seafood all were very good. Prices were not bad either for what you got. Excellent salads as well.... More
