Johns Hopkins was inspired by his close friend George Peabody to use his great wealth for the public good. The collaboration between these men and the institutions they created is the inspiration for our restaurant, located in the Research & Education Building at the Johns Hopkins All Childr

Great for Father’s Day
Our party of 4 was seated promptly and couldn't be happier with the service, food and drink we received at the Library on Father's Day.
Celebrating Father’s Day with the family. We loved everything and will definitely be back.
It was a cool spot, but service was pretty slow. It seemed like there was no rush on anything. I was almost finished with my water before they even came to ask for my drink order. Food was good and beautifully presented. I recommend making a reservation early as it fills out fast and you don't want to be stuck outside in the Florida heat.
We really enjoyed the ambience of The Library. Decor was well done, interesting. We found a very conveneint parking space on the street right outside. All of the wait staff seemd very attentive. Food was very good. Not a large menu but plenty of variety of both brunch and lunch items from which to select. Overall our group really enjoyed it and we would definitely return.
I cannot say enough about the Library! The Food never disappoints, the service is always phenomenal and the atmosphere is fantastic. Lemon Poppy seed Pancakes, the bacon Gouda Grits and the Bookmark drink are amongst my favorites. Can't wait to go again!
the food was amazing, love this place! Highly recommend.
Our reservation was for 7:15 and we were told to wait in the main area of the restaurant for 45 minutes. There was no where to stand and we constantly had to move to make room for the waiters. The food was good and came out at a decent time. The waitress Erin was great; she was friendly and apologetic when the other staff messed up. The truffle fries were very good and so was the truffle mushroom pasta. We ordered dessert and every order was brought out except dod one which the kitchen somehow lost. We had to wait an additional 10 minutes for that. The restaurant was good but not sure it’s completely worth it.
Terrific meal--especially the scallops, roasted chicken and cheese board--made better by Erin's excellent service. We will be back.
Cool place. The bread board is amazing. The food was great! Drinks could have been better. But definitely would go back!
The Library was delicious as always. I usually love the outdoor seating but it was just too humid maybe a mist or a fan between the tables?
Having a reservation was helpful especially since I had a big party. We were seated right away and started ordering starters. Truffle fries and smoked salmon dip was mouthwatering. We ordered lemon poppy pancakes and cinnamon bun to share. 5 fluffy pancakes would be too much for me! Last time I could customize my omelet but not this time. Their seasonal menu was coming out so they were not allowing any substitutions. Crab omelet was big and full. Too many dishes to jump in on but you will not be disappointed with any of them as long as you don’t want to substitute anything.
We had a wonderful experience! Lovely food and service
Excellent evening. The free parking next door was nice.... However, there was a bad curb/bump that on the particular parking spot we used caused my nice car to drag... grrr. The meal was great, the vibe was excellent. Loved the evening after a bump start...
Anniversary dinner was amazing. Food, ambiance service was all top notch for a busy Friday night.
We had the best meal & great service at the Library last night! Everyone got something different & we all ate every bite! Lisa was an outstanding server. Cannot wait to come back!
While this restaurant has an amazing setting and extremely well trained and informed staff, it is the food that sets this place apart from all other restaurants in the area. The chef has mastered the art of making a meal a true and tantalizing experience for your pallet and taste buds.
We continue to introduce this place to many other locals so they can appreciate the true "experience". Come hungry and try it all.
The Library was fantastic. All the food was decadent and the cocktail was incredible as well. I don't remember our server's name but she was very attentive and helped my partner and I pick out what food we should eat. I hope to come and visit again!
Great menu options, friendly service but for lunch dates needed to move a little faster. Wouldn’t stop me from coming again and again though.
Both the food and drinks were fabulous! We will definitely be going back. I’ve heard they offer a great brunch so that maybe our next visit.
The ambiance and service were great. Their hamburger was not that great. It is well done with no other option. The tomatoe was green. The chicolate dessert was outstanding!Will try it again but order another entree.
Everything was first rate from the decor, service and food. Definitely one of our favorite spots!
Great food and service!
This place is fantastic! From the food to the services and ambiance! Incredible!
Always a great experience at The Library. The menu has lots of wonderful choices. Our server, Christian, was outstanding. They have opened up lots of outdoor seating. The ambiance inside is wonderful. I would highly recommend The Library.
Food portions at brunch were overwhelming. Not necessary to overdo the size this way.
Lovely brunch in a beautiful space. Service was good, food was plentiful and delicious.
Amazing presentation and high quality food! Would recommend!
What a lovely experience last night at the Library! The service was great and the food was divine! My steak was cooked to PERFECTION! Can’t wait to go back.
Great place, very different ambiance and food is great as well. Even for the good quality food, it feels a bit expensive (vegetable sides are also around $10 each). That could be slightly improved, unless fresh truffles are being used in every dish!
But love the place, the service and I have recommended to many friends.
Great food. Salmon and grouper were excellent! Unique atmosphere. Very good service.
Great place but our steaks that were ordered medium rare came out well done. Plus no flavor to the steaks.
Cheese and meat board was amazing
Our server was a rockstar!!!
Amazing service and food!
Waited 35 minutes for a table despite having a reservation. Typical brunch fair, food was OK. Nothing memorable. Presentation was nice.
Food here is always top quality. However for the price, the level of service didn’t match. If you’re going sit outside during daytime, there should be umbrellas for those in direct sunlight. And continuous water service. Our server only showed up three times, one to fill up water cups, second to take our orders and third when she realized our orders weren’t brought out in full. Had to track her down in order to pay and then she insinuated that she deserved a $15 tip on a $45 meal by asking if I wanted any change. Will think twice about coming here again.
First time there and will definitely be back. Food was fresh and outstanding. Jannell was our server, she was amazing.
Amazing quality and fantastic service! Our new favorite restaurant in St Pete
I had a great time at the library. Food was a bit overpriced, but it did taste great. Ambience was fun. Well decorated restaurant that keeps to the library theme. I would go again.
Highly recommend! The food and service was great! The library vibe was awesome and made for a great date location.
