The food was good but the service only fair. The restaurant was only half full and therefore couldn't understand why it took the waiter so long in serving us.

Our lunch entrees of fish tacos and mahi-mahi were prepared perfectly and tasted great. The service was friendly and punctual; definitely worth giving this restaurant a look.

Ate here while visiting Charleston for a girl's weekend. We made reservations and were seated right away. Our waitress's name was Meghan. (We ate here on 01/17/15 in the evening.) She was an excellent server. Very attentive without being intrusive. Answered our questions and always was pleasant. It was a busy night. We were served quickly and everything was delicious....

We came on a Sunday afternoon and chose from a nice brunch menu. I had an egg white vegetarian omelette, which was delicious. My husband ordered a breakfast burrito, which he enjoyed as well. We ate at an off time, so only a few diners, and service was quite responsive. It's a courtyard setting, though the windows were closed in... More

Not your average menu. Went for lunch and prices ranged from $10-20. Got the portobello and Gouda soup, didn't like too well. Tasted like eating gravy. Sandwich was ok. Got the lump crab BLT, honestly just tasted like a regular BLT. Go for their specialty, fish with rice.

New Year's week end was spent visiting some of the glorious restaurants in Charleston. The last we visited was Blossom which had some stiff competition. After our party of four finished dinner and was having coffee we discovered a problem which there is no need to go into. The server apologized profusely and got the manager who did the same....

After trying to get lunch at about 10 different spots on New Year’s Eve, we ended up at a place not on our list called Blossom, which is close to the Harbor on Bay Street. Blossom offers Southern dishes with a Mediterranean flair and ended up being a nice surprise treat for us. One of things you first notice is... More
