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.

“Extraordinary Dining Experience”
Reviewed December 1, 2012

We enjoyed the seven course "sampler" menu and found it wonderful. Each menu item was both a visual and gustatory sensation. The fixed menu & fixed price opened us up to a dining experience out of our normal comfort zone and it was fantastic.

The wait staff were friendly, informative and helped create the relaxed and totally comfortable dining experience.

This will be a long remembered and treasured dining experience.

“Great dining experience”
Reviewed December 1, 2012

This was our first time back to Volt in about a year; we had dined here several times last year. The food is quite good and the service is attentive. It seems like they have staffed up considerably, making it a bit more of a challenge getting to the restroom. The price estimate on Trip Advisor is definitely low; where we were able to order a la carte last year in the dining room, it is now restricted to a four course prix fixe at $80 or a seven course tasting menu at $95. Adding a bottle of wine will get you way beyond the price range shown here now. That being said, the quality of the food and wines makes it a good value. I highly recommend dining here, but it should be for a special occasion, unless you won the Powerball this week....

“an absolute delight!”
Reviewed November 8, 2012

And well worth the drive from Annapolis! My visit was the perfect time to plan a our Girls' Day Away, and VOLT provided the best prix fixe brunch! Every course was like seeing food photos, and my BF, CIA grad, didn't miss taking the opportunity to post our plates on FB. The 'art' disappeared as we began to bite into each and every course offered. Take a look at their menus, and make your reservation soon! Great service by a well trained, and most professional staff.
