We weren't very hungry and took advantage of their small plates option . Our dinner was excellent. They offered a very diverse menu from pizza with goat cheese and lamb to scallops with white cheddar grits. Our server was outstanding. She was there when we needed something but not intrusive. Food presentation on the plate was also excellent

The start of things was a bit shaky because of....parking. Of course! It's downtown Charleston! ;) The restaurant has a very interesting feel. Somewhat historic, somewhat homey and somewhat modern. I was excited to be there from the moment I walked in. We started with fried green tomatoes. While they were good and the toppings were excellent, I couldn't find... More

I am a Charleston local, and have been coming to Blossom for the past 20 years. It always exceeds my expectations and this time was no different! Amazing service paired with interesting and delicious food. Can't get much better in this town! I would make a reservation as this place is very popular! Try the mahi and duck, both amazing... More

The Maverick group has several fine restaurants in its stable and Blossom is no exception. We have been to Blossom several times for lunch or dinner and have never been disappointed. The food atmosphere and service have been consistently very good. It is a particularly nice place for lunch and one can usually get a table without too much wait.... More

The signature dish is their Mahi-Mahi and it is excellent. My wife had the BLT with crab meat and the fried green tomato. I got to eat half of it and it too was excellent. Service was excellent too. In fact, all the employees we ran into were friendly. The place wasn't busy as we had lunch at 2:45pm. But,... More

It was my first time and Charleston and we went on a recommendation but overall I was not impressed. Personally I though the menu was a bit limited and portions were not that generous for the price. There were five in our party and although we were there on a busy Friday night the amount of time it took for... More

We stopped into this restaurant to take shelter from the pouring rain. It was around 11 am on a Sunday. Their brunch menu offered both breakfast and lunch dishes. I had a delicious salad with bibb lettuce, candied pecans, fresh peaches and blue cheese. Perfect for a light lunch.

Dear visitors to Charleston: please do not wear shorts and flipflops to fine dining establishments. Please respect our city. That said, Blossom in outstanding. From the she crap soup to our entrees, the meal was delicious and the service was exceptional. You can't go wrong with Blossom.
