We've been to VOLT before and the food was much better. The overall feel of the restaurant was a little worn, it seems to have lost it edge a bit. Having gone to Voltaggio Brothers Steak and Estuary, I feel the owner is putting more emphasis on his new projects than VOLT. It was a little disappointing because we took our daughter there for her 18th birthday and it just didn't pack the punch we were hoping for. Overall, it was a pleasant experience, but I think Brian Voltaggio needs to do some updates to the space.
Amazing meal and great service. Wine paired great with everything. Great for a special occasion.
Knowledgeable staff is able to explain everything on the menu. Food arrives all at the same time and everyone knows where it goes. The food is really delicious, impeccably prepared and presented. An interesting menu of seasonal items is good value. We will be back
The food is creative and delicious. Go there for a special culinary experience.
Very nice but pricey. Excellent service. Probably the best I've ever had. Food was excellent and unusual. Something for everyone. Definitely recommend Volt for special occasions.
This was our second time at Volt. The food this time wasn’t as good. I got the French toast and I hate to say this, but the toast was really tough. My husband loved his burger, but said the fries were just okay. The cheese plate was also underwhelming, we’ve had much better at the Wine Kitchen downtown. Maybe it was just an off day? We still like Volt and probably will return way in the future, but this time was just kind of a bummer.
The food was phenomenal and wine pairings sublime. We had the tasting menu for lunch. A lovely way to spend an afternoon.
A delightful Sunday brunch. Carrot vadovan appetizer was spectacular
I have been dying to try Volt for years. Sadly, I think I missed it’s glory days. Food and service running on reputation and not quality. Tasting menus had more so-so dishes than hits. Flavors muted or non-existent Service was rushed then slow. Such a disappointment.
Everything was perfect.
I think my only nudge would be the cost was a little high for the menu we were presented.
Volt continues to be a wonderful gift to Frederick.
Worth the drive and money
The first two courses were very good. My wife had the pork entree and it was definitely not tender. There was a good portion of pork but again the lack of tenderness detracted from the entree. I had the chicken cereal entree with mushrooms. Unless I misunderstood the menu description, there was no chicken that accompanied the mushrooms. The mushrooms were good and the entree was tasty but the lack of chicken was certainly surprising.
An amazing dining experience! The chef’s tasting menu is superb, very creative, well thought of and perfectly balanced.
Fantastic and well worth the drive from DC! Innovative appetizers, most particularly a carrot and coconut appetizer that was like an explosion of freshness in your mouth, as well as a delicious lobster congee. For the main courses, the homemade pastas were delicious, particularly the one with duck. The service was impeccable, and they send you on your way with wrapped cookies. All in all a delight!
I loved the wonderful service immediate....
My appetizer was lovely and yummy...a bit over priced...
My octopus ..which I was so excited to have was a bit bland with its ingredients...not up to a higher rating..which I could...
Breads amazing ..butter way toooo salty.
Everything was superb.
The food at Volt is the best thing you will ever taste. The only trouble is that you can't order everything you want because you can't eat it all in one sitting!
Our first of many future visits.
The food was bland and cold. Some combinations of ingredients did not taste good at all. I wondered if the chef had actually tasted the food vs. trying for a visual effect. Portions were small for the price - and we ordered from the a la carte menu, not the tasting.
Service was overall good, but a bit too much, and one waitress was a bit rude and abrupt when asked a question.
We will not recommend, nor will we be back.
Great attentive service. Wine was excellent, food was well presented and delicious.
Our Saturday brunch at Volt was outstanding. Some of the best food and service we have ever had. Will definately be going back to Volt!!
Excellent! Really enjoyed our dining experience! Would definitely recommend!
This place was severely overrated. We had very high expectations and were severely disappointed the moment we step foot in the entryway. The hostess was off putting and not chipper. They sat us in the back near kitchen with not a soul around and zero view. The server came over and asked if we had been here before at which point we said no. She literally said, "the right side is a 10-course meal, the left side is a la carte, let me know when you are ready," then walked away. We asked to be moved to front and were placed at a table with a fabulous view. We were then greeted by another apathetic, somewhat snobby server. The menus were tattered and the walls were all scraped up. I asked to keep the drink menu and was told I couldn't because there were not enough for other guests. After ordering our drink, we made the decision that it was time to leave and go to a restaurant where our business was wanted. I do not recommend this establishment.
Really artistic display of food. Great tastes also.
We went for our wedding anniversary midweek. The staff there combines ease and professionalism. The dishes we had were small but perfectly executed. A number of extras presented by the chef at no charge. A ravioli appetizer was truly delicious and memorable. A simple lettuce salad the same. Lavender ice cream dessert with strawberry mousse was a perfect conclusion. The cod main course was interesting; the salmon less so. Reasonable prices for wines by the glass despite a high-end menu.
The food was delicious and the service was outstanding. Love the environment. Can be a little pricey especially for the amount of food that you get.
Extraordinary experience all around!! The food was sensual, delicious, artistic, plentiful, and best we’ve ever had. The service was exceptional and kind.
We have been coming here for 11 years and the meal tonight was absolutely the best we have had here and they always have been good. The corn soup was delicious, the duck bolognese was always top notch, the filet was seasoned and cooked perfectly and super tender. Best filet I’ve had. Pork chop was also beautifully cooked.
First time. My wife and my 46 wedding anniversary Sunday evening. Great time and experience
Pricy but you’re getting top notch food, interesting dishes, flavors, and textures, with great service. I was pleased that the wait staff were all very friendly and relaxed. Sometimes places like this get stuffy but not our staff. One server joked with us, another interacted because of the infant we had with us and actually showed us pictures of his young son. It all added up to a memorable dining experience.
I don’t know everyone’s names who served us but Stan was one and the hostess Onella was so friendly, welcoming, and kind.
This is a great place you must come with big appetite. Food is awesome and cocktail drinks are unbelievable. Ambience of the restaurant was fantastic and the staff was above and beyond. I will definitely be returning back again and again.
Service and food was very enjoyable. We will return for special occasions.
Prices are outrageous. Portions were small. Tried to fill us up on bread. Not worth the money.
Bright happy atmosphere that makes fine dinning accessible! The staff was so warm and welcoming, joking and helpful- with recommendations not just limited to the menu. While the chef's tasting menu is a wonderful value and gave a great selection the best part of the meal was the ravioli. I would return for that alone! Also, be sure to ask the knowledgeable staff for a drink recommendation.
Food is very good. Great experience. Expensive. Would recommend it for a special occasion.
Great place to eat new dishes in a quiet venue. Serving staff was very attentive and knowledgeable about the food.
It is a bit expensive but you do get value for your money. We go once or twice a year for special occasions.
