A recommendation from our hotel, we were jet lagged and needed something light. Blossom was just lovely, a wait for a table but that was ok. Darcy our server was engaging and provided good insights into the menu. Salad was great, pizza not the light wood fired we were hoping for. It was still ok.

We headed out to dinner for a nice meal out and were very disappointed. First we ordered the peach sangria and it was awful (tasted like a ton of peach schnapps). We sent that back. The soups we ordered were tasty but I was sorely disappointed in my entree. I had the steak and mashed potatoes with broccoli. There was... More

Looking for an eclectic dining experience in Historic Downtown with airy open space, excellent service and fine dining? Look no further than Blossom that has it all. Beautiful courtyard seating, but if weather doesn't permit that, the inside dining makes you feel as if you were dining al-fresco. The service is immaculate and the staff is very customer-oriented and knowledgable.... More

My wife and I enjoyed our meal at Blossom. The service and food were very good. Our only negative experience was the noise level.

We were a party of five colleagues dinning after a conference. When we got to the restaurant, we found two others we knew there. Restaurant was ver accommodating in pulling tables together and we all had a great meal in an open high ceiling room that served our noisy group well. The She Crab soup was superb. Great southern style... More

With so many great restaurants in Charleston, it's hard to choose which one to dine at. I am so glad that Blossom is where we landed! The menu includes a nice variety including salads, flatbreads, and delicious main dishes. We tried the lamb flatbread, which was unique and yummy. My entree, the grouper special, was to die for. One of... More

Staying at Folly Beach the restaurants in the area are not what they are in Charleston that's for sure. So it was really nice to have such a great experience at Blossom. We stopped here for lunch after a walking tour and were kind of pressed for time and worried we may end up taking too long, but we were... More

We ended up here because we couldn't get into Magnolia. We weren't sure what to expect. The Oven Roasted Salmon was delicious! Dining companions had the Crab Louis stack and the roasted octopus, both of which were great choices. I expected the Crab Louis to be heavy but it wasn't - it was light and very pleasant with very good... More

Solid menu, good wine list, free parking next door, wait staff well trained and each of our party of 8 really enjoyed their meal. Went on a Thursday night and restaurant was full and therefore it took longer for our meals to arrive than we expected but overall good experience and fair prices.

Thank Bill D
