Description: VOLT offers guests a menu of modern American cuisine. The focus of our cuisine is based on classic flavor combinations, creating sophisticated dishes that emphasize purity and seasonal flavors that are based on fundamental and innovative cooking techniques. VOLT's relationship with local artisan farmers ensures availability of products to fulfill the philosophy behind the menu, in a refined, historic venue where classic meets modern. By design, the restaurant follows along the original footprint of the mansions first floor parlors. Both the 38 seat main dining room and the bar/lounge open off the foyer. The original mosaic tile in the foyer was the inspiration behind the warm monochromatic color palette that adorns the finishes in VOLT. Private dining can be hosted in the conservatory offering views of the expansive courtyard. The 700 square foot kitchen afforded space to include up to 20 guests.

This was our first time visiting Volt, and we were NOT disappointed. We visited during brunch for a special Anniversary celebration. The servers were professional, friendly and made you feel welcome and special. The food was very creative and memorable. Every course was a feast for the eyes and the stomach. I saw some reviews that mentioned that it was... More

Not inexpensive at all but worth every penny! Call the restaurant on the first day of the month in which you wish to dine and see if Table 21 is available. If it is, book it! The was a 21 course, three hour meal served to eight people right at the leading edge of the kitchen. Some courses are just... More

Their ingenious and creative use of ingredients lead to a mix of flavors i have not experienced elsewhere. I love the rum cocktails they serve. Recently i attended an event that featured cocktails made with some of the beers from Flying Dog Brewery here in Frederick. Excellent cocktail that i really enjoyed.

I have eaten at volt just once and broke the bank. I realize it is not for me. I can get a great meal at one of ten great restaurants in Frederick for a third of the price.

The food was interesting - artistic presentation and not your everyday menu selection. We left hungry :( Highlight of the visit was the unusual restrooms, and as for the meal, all plates were set down at the same time and no plates were removed until all of us (8) were finished.

Despite some flavor combos that just did not work, the overall experience is worth it for a splurge. The young waitstaff are clearly trained well, and did help guide our menu selections. The prices are high, but not unreasonably so for a restaurant of this caliber. My advice is to carefully study each dish's ingredients; if something doesn't sound like... More

My partner and I have been trying to go to Volt for a rather long time, but have never made it up to Frederick. When we finally went to one Friday night, we were not disappointed at all and we had a great time and delicious meal. There has been buzz about this place for years, but I guess it's... More

Visiting a friend in Northern Virginia for the weekend, we decided to look for some restaurants outside of DC and take a nice Sunday drive. We made a reservation well over a month in advance and met another friend for brunch at Volt. I guess I am just spoiled or something from living in Atlanta and travelling a lot to... More
