My wife and I went here based upon a recommendation of friends who were not wrong. The food (fish for us) was prepared as ordered and was well presented. One of the bonuses is that they have a nice selection of 1/2 bottles of wine which is great if you want more than one glass and don't want to order... More

My friends and I took a weekend trip to Charleston and we found this place and decided to try it out. I was floored! I had the Blackened Catfish and it was to die for! I have a shellfish allergy and our waitress was more than accommodating, the ambience was relaxed but still felt like it met the pricing of... More

Blossom was recommended to us by friends familiar with Charleston and we were not disappointed!! Amazing food, great service and modern fun atmosphere. Had the oysters Rockefeller, crab stuffed grouper over creamed spinach and Creme brûlée - divine!!

I went valentines day with my girlfriend. She is a pescatarian so I found blossom to have a lot of seafood options on their menu. We looked at the menu online and decided it would work. I made the reservation which was easy. Upon arriving the place was nice. We soon found out that there was a valentine days menu.... More

My large party got excellent food with the exception of one unacceptably salty entree, but poor service spoiled the experience. We had to wait half an hour for our table which was reserved well in advance. Thereafter the pace remained painfully slow due mainly to the fact that a single waiter served our group of thirteen. We were in the... More

We visited late on a Saturday night. Only able to secure a reservation for 7 @8:45. We were seated promptly, however at a crowded small round table. Drink orders were taken however waiter seemed impatient w our party. The service seemed to improve as our meal was served. The food choices were many. The food presentation was done well although...

FABULOUS meal! We had a party of eight and everyone loved their meal. Shrimp and grits, scallops and grits, gumbo, seafood platter, and Mahi-mahi. All was great. Desserts also did not disappoint. You can't go wrong here.

Had dinner last night after a day on the road. Had the She Crab soup that was more cream with very little crab flavor. The calamari was over fried, but the dipping sauce was good. The Shrimp and Grits was interesting with andouille sausage, but the shrimps were indeed shrimpee. What saved our experience was the service, which was first... More

By night three, we were tired of big heavy $ meals so opted to go to Blossom. The service was great as were the oysters and the food. Bill was a bit less than other spots but we were very happy to have eaten there!
