Friday night on H st

Relatives, including a 5 yr old, will be in town next weekend and we'd like to go to dinner on H st but I'm a bit wary because every place we're considering does not take reservations.

Does anyone have any knowledge or opinions of what the wait is likely to be like on a Friday night around 6:00 pm for a party of 5 at:

The Argonaut,
The Liberty Tree,
The Queen Vic?

Or is there another similar priced restaurant on H St that does take reservations that I'm not thinking of?

Yes, I've already considered Ethiopic, but that's more then they can handle!

  1. you should be okay since your going early

    1. I haven't been to The Argonaut but The Queen Vic is one of my favorites on H St. They have daily specials which are always good and tend to sell out early in the evening. You shouldn't have a problem getting a table at 6.

      1. I think Queen Vic would be a good choice for a family, especially since you're going early. Sit upstairs, there's more room up there. And they have some really god kid-friendly food. Enjoy!

        1. We just went to Liberty Tree a few weeks ago Friday at around 6 pm with 5 people -- no waiting. The food was great and place engaging for kids. Argonaut and Queen Vic fine with kids too -- Argonaut will be full of families at that time. Queen Vic a little more "bar-ry" than the other 2 (less restaurant seating) and I don't think the food is as good as the other 2.
