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.

Recently dined at Volt with family for a special occasion, and it was great. There are two choices for dining -- a fixed tasting menu or a la carte. Either way you're getting several courses of small plates. My first course was the only disappointment. The menu said hen o'the woods mushrooms with seaweed among the garnishes. It didn't say...

The whole impression from the beginning was very different from what you would expect in Frederick Maryland. It was definitely an up market modern atmosphere somewhat what you would expect from a up market Parisian restaurant. The service and attention throughout the evening was first rate and wine steward had a fabulous knowledge of wine. So why only three star... More

We haven't been back since the last occasion for a special restaurant in June. This time it was for a birthday brunch. Nothing has changed meaning it is still at the top of my restaurant list. To begin with the service reaches a rare balance of warmth without being intrusive and overbearing or condescending. Advice is given when asked for... More

I had wanted to visit Volt in Frederick for a long time so when a good friend of mine had her bachelorette party in Frederick, she picked Volt for dinner. There was 13 of us and the wait staff was more than accommodating. The portions at Volt are really small so the wait staff recommended picking at least three. I... More

We had reserved a table for Christmas Eve for a family dinner. In short, in my opinion the service (with the exception of our primary waiter) was extremely poor, and the food was sub-standard. Things didn't start great. Our drink order (a bottle of wine for my wife and I and two diet colas for our daughters) was very slow.... More

Great service and nice atmosphere, but the food is underwhelming! You pay for artistry not food and it is very expensive. The best part of the meal was the French press coffee. If you want good tapas portioned food, go down the street to Isabella's!

My wife and I went on Sat night Dec 20 and had a fantastic experience. We did the Chef's menu with wine pairings. Each course was wonderful and the pairings were perfect. The waiter was very knowledgeable about each wine and took the time to explain and discuss it. The service was impeccable, the food was some of the best... More

Saturday brunch menu presented only after three efforts to upsell (water, cocktails at 130pm, and a little afternoon vino). The food came out in small tapas sizes, which is ok, but the pretense of being presented your food avec a verbal description of the dish in exquisite detail was almost too much to keep a straight face. Dishes were nice... More

I took my husband to Table 21 at Volt for his birthday. We are both foodies and were excited to enjoy the experience. All of the courses were excellent. I thoroughly enjoyed everything except a lamb dish (personal preference) but my husband happily ate that. Probably my favorite dish was the Wagu steak bite. I felt full at the end... More

The food is not bad (far from it), but only a Voltaggio could make comfort food stuffy and pretentious. GREAT bartenders. Salad and soup I had were very good.
