We ordered a grouper and a shortrib specials recommended by our server Harvie, and the meal exceeded our expectations. Harvie was extremely knowledgeable of the menu items and appeared to enjoy servicing his assigned tables. We had a carrot cake and apple crumble that were excellent. Would highly recommend this restaurant for food quality and service.

This is a nice restaurant with a great menu but I found it a bit overpriced for not-very-memorable food. Everything sounded really delicious but the dishes we ordered just didn't live up to the hype. Paid 150 dollars (incl drinks, tax and tip) for dinner for two but I don't think it was worth it. Service was a bit so-so... More

We ordered the shrimp and grits, there must have been a dozen shrimp and the grits were creamy, it was very tasty and a large portion for lunch. The lobster roll was one of the best I have ever had, the lobster was succulent and the roll was lightly toasted but melted in your mouth.the broccoli salad was good and... More

Had 9:30 reservation got there a little bit early, was still sat right away. Server was very educated and detailed at explaining the menu, wine list, and that night's specials. Food was superb from the she crab soup, Mahi & Flounder on thru the red velvet bread pudding. Our server as well as entire staff were spectacular. The ONLY down... More

My husband and I have dined at Blossom twice in the past month and have had perfect experiences both times! I've had the duck twice and it is fabulous! My husband had braised ribs this last time that practically melt in your mouth. Chris has been our waiter both times and his service is impeccable! Each time he suggested the... More

So embarrassed...took out of town guests here yesterday for dinner. It was not good...quality was poor and attention to detail was lacking. Two of us had the pork loin crusted with Parmesan accompanied with broccoli and sweet potato gratin, two of us had the short rib. We ordered the red velvet bread pudding and chocolate lava cake for dessert. The... More

We are in Charleston on business and have loved the food. This was by far the best food and service we've encountered! This is a beautiful restaurant. Our waiter, Thomas, was very friendly and attentive. We had fried green tomatoes, catfish and trout. The flavors were incredible! We are here one more night and plan to go to Blossom again... More

We visited on Saturday night. We have been many times before and always had great food and service. They must have lowered their standards. We were here and at another of their restaurants Magnolias this weekend and also had poor service. Maybe new Management. If so they need to go back to the prior. We didn't feel it was worth... More

Been to Blossom a couple of times but somewhat disappointed each time. This trip I ordered fried oyster sliders on Hawaiian rolls...sounds yummy, right? But, alas, each roll had one very small oyster and lots of leftover bread. So my meal had a total of 3 oysters, each of them very small. Quite disappointing. Probably won't return; there are too...

On Halloween night we had an amazing dinner . The preparation , fresh ingredients and presentation were all excellent. The server was among the best we had ever had ( at many upscale restaurants in prime locations). The right level of attention, personality and timely service-combined with the privacy for a special couple's dinner. Blossoms lived up to its reputation... More
