We dined at Blossom last night and had a nice gourmet meal. The wife had maui-maui and I had the duck. The fish was better than the duck and came highly recommended . We had drinks ahead of time and despite requesting only "well" grade spirits they were more expensive than we have experienced all week. The atmosphere was very... More

I love going here for lunch! The bartender is amazing and she turned me on to the peach bellinis! The food is terrific too! They have a little bit of everything for a little bit of everyone. :)

We stopped for lunch and I fully intended to eat only half of my sandwhich so I would have room for dinner. The crab cake and fried green tomato sandwhich was so good it was gone before I knew it. Dinner was also excellent. The staff is very attentive and helpful and we had a choice of sitting indoors or... More

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
