The restaurant is relaxing but elegant. The service is fantastic. The seafood was very good. Price was average for the area. Would definitely go again.

My wife and I had dinner at Blossom and thought it was very good. Had we not eaten at a couple of Charleston's best restaurants on this trip I might have rated it higher. Our food was very good but not great. Service was attentive. Atmosphere was nice and prices were in line with the quality of the food. I... More

Visiting Charleston, SC we were unable to make a reservation at the highly rated restaurants and ended up at Blossom. We felt the menu was limited. The food was good but not exception. Ambience okay. Service above average.

I have always said this restaurant had the best Shrimp & Grits in Charleston.....well, sadly, no more. They have changed the recipes of many of the dishes, which I guess one needs to do to make it more interesting. However, if something isn't broke, don't fix it. Everything we had seemed too sweet; the fried green tomatoes had a sweet... More

Located in the center of downtown Charleston, our first meal was lunch at the Blossom on East Bay Street. My mushroom arugula pizza had a wonderful thin crisp crust topped with a generous mound of arugula. My husband's Southwest Chicken Salad was fresh and delicious. Would definitely visit Blossom again during future visits to Charleston.

Service was ok, but it took a long time for our entree to arrive. I had duck; my husband had a "light" meal of fried chicken. The chicken meal was nicely cooked and wasn't too heavy. The duck was just ok. It came with wild rice pilaf which was overly laden with either sage or thyme. You could taste little... More

We stopped in on the spur of the moment for a casual dinner with my husband and a friend on a Friday evening in October. We sat outside, which was nice because we could both enjoy the weather and people watch. Both the service and our meals were good - not the best of my life and definitely not the... More

A fabulous lunch at this charming restaurant. We sat in their lovely outside courtside enjoying one of their lovely selection of cocktails whilst waiting for a starter of fried green tomatoes. They were the best I have ever tasted. Main meal was cornmeal dusted flounder which was also delicious The Blossom has a great selection of meals and desserts to... More

Our family has been dining at Blossom for years and almost always return there on each trip to Charleston. The relaxing and pleasant atmosphere match the excellent food at Blossom. On our most recent visit there we enjoyed the outdoor patio on a pleasant early October evening. The service was excellent and the food very good as well. The fried... More
