“A Delicious Meal!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2014

Upon our arrival to Charleston, we chose to eat our first dinner at Blossom. We had no reservation, just walked in and asked the host if there was a table open for dinner. What luck! We were seated right away, and the staff was very attentive and so helpful with the menu.

It is a beautiful restaurant inside, and our meals were delicious! The staff were very attentive and friendly. How fortunate that this was our first meal for our visit! Besides our meals, we agree with other Tripadvisor writers, the bread and honey butter were SO good!

“Wonderful Trip to Charleston”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2014

We had reservations at both of the other restaurants owned by HGMI for later in the week with our larger group. We went to Blossom in a small group for dinner on a Monday night, and it did not dissapoint. I truly enjoyed everything I ordered. One in our group didn't care for a martini she ordered, but they happily took the drink and got her a new one. Every bite of my food was perfect. Thanks for a wonderful experience!

“Great Place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2014

First stop on our vacation and what a pleasant surprise. We walked in and were seated right away. Waitress was very attentive. Very nice wine selection. Fresh flowers on the table! The bread with the honey butter topping was unbelievable. She crab soup was the best and the fish tacos were to die for. Great place and would definitely go back.

“Wonderful dinner!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2014

We had dinner at Blossoms the last night before I left my daughter to start her freshman year at College of Charleston! It was a great choice. The food was delicious and fresh and the service was top shelf. We would definitely go back again! And bonus, there is complimentary parking right next to the restaurant!
