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.

They have a beautiful patio and the service was excellent. The food was good but we had higher expectations. Overall, I'd recommend it, but I think it's a bit overpriced for the quality of the food. The ambiance is wonderful, though, so perhaps that's worth paying for. The coffee cake parting gift was a lovely touch; unfortunately it is incredibly... More

Okay, so, today I am writing more about our visit today even though my boyfriend and I have been here several times in the past. Today, we met up with my best friend and her husband in the bar area. It was a lovely time. The atmosphere in the bar area is chill and comfortable enough that we spent a... More

Come for the service and the food. It's not just a meal, it's an experience. The staff are professional like in Europe. They want you to enjoy your time at the Volt. Meals delivered to your party at the same time by multiple staff. Classy. The restaurant was immaculately clean, as was the bathroom. See into the kitchen as you... More

This is a truly intimate, romantic, yet not overly stuffy place to share a special occasion or just splurge on yourself. You are treated like royalty while enjoying a non-rushed multi-course meal. Sommelier is knowledgeable and wine prices for all ranges. Be bold in your choices for maximum reward.

Had the tasting menu $95. for 6 courses. Main course, Lamb was not good. Fatty. Several bottles of wine. Definitely knew what they were talking about wine wise. Crowded together inside. Patio was delightful. $1,000. for 4.

Scrolling through the Washington, DC Zagat Guide last Saturday morning I was stunned to find that 2 of the top 10 and 4 of the top 50 restaurants in the DC area are in Frederick, Maryland. Making the pilgrimage to The Inn at Little Washington is one thing, but really, Frederick, MD, best known as the home of the nation’s... More

We went to Volt for our anniversary. It is worth the trip if you are looking for a culinary experience. The plates are small and very artistic. We did the tasting menu (1 vegetarian and 1 not) with the wine pairings. All the dishes were excellent. Some of the wine pairings were hard to hear based on which staff presented... More

WOW! This was one of the best meals I have ever eaten. We all ate off the tasting menu and it was simply one delight after another. Each dish was tiny, perfect and featured roasting, pickling or searing each ingredient separately to bring out the flavors. This sounds like it could have been busy, but it wasn't - it was... More

This was one of the most memorable meals I have had in recent years. It started with a little "amuse bouche" which was light and delicate, like a mararon but with a savory sauce. Then followed four small courses, including a foie gras mousse, a lobster raviolo, a perfectly done halibut, and a chocolate dessert of several different types of... More

I could go on and on about Volt, but it's hard to add to what others have said here. So I will focus on one point about the food. My wife and I both got tasting menus, but she opted for the vegetarian option. We each tasted each others' dishes. I have never had a better vegetarian meal in my... More
