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.

Perfect Evening - Only Wish I Had Time for the Chef's Table

I took two good friends to Volt or a business dinner as we were in Baltimore for a meeting. Highly recommend making the trip out. Volt is in a beautiful old building in a quaint city. Because the restaurant is laid out as a series of rooms, each one makes you feel like you are in a small, private... read more

We had a great time with amazing drinks at the bar but the prices were a little on the steep side for all drinks. But I think you get what you pay for as they were really good :) We didn't eat anything.

The atmosphere was nice but this is very up scale dining. It's borders on being too stuffy. The table cloths are huge and draped over our legs throughout dinner which was annoying. The food was good. Very small portions. As Tom would say, everything needed a little more seasoning. For the price, I was expecting to be blown away but... More

This is a very "hip" place that gets good reviews (as you can see). Personally, I found the menu creative to the point of silly (the "vanilla-sage infused baby heirloom carrots marinated in a port-stout demi-glace and arranged on a bed of Hungarian squash blossoms with pistachio and shitake reduction"--no fears, just made that up). This seems to be a... More

We ate here for the second time this year and enjoyed the chef's tasting menu both times. The wine list has a broad selection and enough reasonably priced bottles in most categories. Their cocktails are interesting and a good place to start while choosing your wine. The venue is classy, the service impeccable and the food is outstanding. This is... More

I've been looking forward to eating dinner here since the first time I visited Frederick. Honestly, I had a mixed response. The food had some lovely notes & some very high notes...and some of it almost didn't register. I would say it was a very nice meal. I'm so glad I went, but I wouldn't go back - at this... More

We had the pleasure of eating at table 21 in Volt last night. Simply fabulous. Table 21 is the Chefs table overlooking into the kitchen. Talk about precision! That kitchen runs like a beautiful machine. It is amazing. The food was ridiculous. Simply delicious....well, it wasn't simple....but was delicious! Table 21 comes with a 3 hour, 21 course meal.

when it comes to fine dining, it doesn't get any higher end than Volt. I'm not a fine dining connoisseur, but wife and I had a wonderful dinner there. very good service. in a converted "brownstone" such as that exists in Frederick.

My husband and I booked the 21 tasting which is simply amazing. You'll be seated around a curved bar, with ~4 other couples, watching the chefs as they prepare the 21 tastings. Tiny little meals that make your mouth rejoice. Each one was better than the last, words cannot describe. Now this is pricey, with the wine pairing added, we... More

I'll start off by saying that the service was excellent. The staff was extremely attentive and since it was our wedding anniversary they went out of their way to make us feel special. I expected the decor and ambiance to be much nicer after passing the building by so many times but it was very minimal and bare. We sat... More
