George Peabody believed in the power and importance of education in the lives of others. One of his many legacies is The George Peabody Library, an institute he built for, and dedicated to, the citizens of Baltimore in 1857.

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 within Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital in St. Petersburg, FL.

At The Peabody, the familiar aroma of coffee, the promise of a delicious meal, and the anticipation of friendly buzz will offer a reprieve from the daily chaos. It is where the community as a whole comes to refill their cup, both proverbially and, often, quite literally.

Come celebrate the culture, the food, the friendship and the community at The Peabody Restaurant at John's Hopkins All Children's Hospital. We'll see you at the Lib

We went for a birthday celebration with 8 of us. The food was wonderful, and the server Kate was the best. We really enjoyed the atmosphere and everyone tried to order something different so we could compare. No complaints and we will be back

The toast on both dishes was cold and as hard as a rock. It made the avocado toast virtually inedible.

Disappointed that the salad dressing was not balanced with enough balsamic vinegar. Far more oil than desirable. I also ordered the truffle fries but it did not have parmesan cheese sprinkled as server indicated. But I'd give it another chance due to ambience and recommendations from others.

It was our third visit to Peabody. The first was really the only stellar one. Quiet. Excellent food. Even MORE excellent service. The second, the food was consistently good; the service was not. Saturday night, there were 4 of us. The charcuterie platter had shrunk significantly since the first visit. Very meager for $18! The salmon came raw. The two flatbread entrees had badly burned crusts. The hamburger (I'm told) was very good. The wait staff was ridiculously poor. I felt stupid leaving a tip. The manager, however, came to our table and came back with the salmon properly cooked. Still trying to decide if we'll ever go back. Very disappointed.

This was my third visit, I was disappointed with the food. The pizza was soggy due to the kitchen stacking up the pizza on a small plate and the noodles in the salad I had were too hard. I will be back but I was hoping for a better experience. My first two visits were for lunch and this time we went for dinner. I definitely think it is a better lunch spot.

Great ambience (once you’re in the restaurant - the exterior is pretty sterile), excellent service from everyone. An interesting spin on the usual sandwiches. Loved the burrata small plate, presented differently than I’ve ever had it. Two minor complaints - a vodka martini that tasted mostly of water and vermouth (returned without a problem) and frites that were a bit soggy. Hamburger looked unremarkable but was delicious. I will definitely return.

Being a foodie we visit many restaurants and eat most every meals at home. While food is a huge component, the ambiance and servers Mandy and Katie make this place. Excellent service and interpersonal communication is what make people come back. Aside from today, since we had to prep for a trip out of town, I can't think of a week that has gone by where we haven't eaten here at least three times a week. Excellent place and service.

I took a small group of people for dinner while attending a conference. Didn't realize that The Peabody was on the campus of John's Hopkins Children's Hospital so this was a nice surprise. The place was pretty quiet during the time we were there. The library like setting with two stories of shelved books was very interesting. The food was great from shared appetizers to main courses, everyone seemed to enjoy their meals. Our wait staff was attentive, patient and very helpful as she answered numerous questions about the menu. I would assume The Peabody is normally packed during lunch time so it's hard to judge the noise level when there were only a few tables dining during our visit.

We went for dinner and had a wonderful time, but we definitely can't wait to come back to check out the breakfast menu!

I have eaten at the Peabody twice. Obviously, I liked it enough to come back and can’t wait to try their brunch on a weekend too. I highly recommend the build your own salad - pairing arugula and mixed greens with hickory smoked salmon and topping off with goat cheese and tomatoes. It’s a little pricey for me to make it a weekly lunch or dinner place ($18 for this salad) , which is comparable to Beach Dr restaurants, but I love the location (I teach yoga, meditation and mindfulness at All Children’s Hospital), the ambience is creative and elegant and the service was excellent. My friend had the Mahi tacos which she said were very good too. So grateful to have this gem in St Pete! I know you’ll do well!

They are still working out kinks with hostess (seating), wait staff & some food items. We were sat next to a large party when the rest of the restaurant was empty. The waitress was a little pushy and distracted, not giving us her full attention. The black bean burger, while good, fell apart. I'm excited to have such a beautiful spot in St Pete and will be patient with the progress.

The portions were very small for the price. The sandwich was very greasy on the outside of the bread, so I just ate the inside. The dessert was very good and do not serve hot tea just cold. I was expecting more from this restaurant I hopefully they will improve soon. We were there early for reservation and was surprised to see many empty tables. I had tried for earlier reservation but was told there were no tables available.

I was anxious to try this new hot spot in St. Pete. I wasn't sure whether the food would live up to the hype (or the prices) but I was pleasantly surprised. I ordered salmon and it was cooked perfectly with a perfect level of char from grilling on the top. The goat cheese was fresh on the menu. We saw desserts come out and those looked incredible as well' will try to save room next time. The coffee was delicious. I will be back for sure. And I will make a point to try breakfast as well.
