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.” said Voltaggio. 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 pallet 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.

We checked in for brunch on Saturday. Had the 3 course mean. Was absolutely delicious. Had the Grits with shrimp. Bur these made me want more. Duck confit was very appetizing, and the cheese plate for dessert was perfect for ending the meal, not heavy at all. The drinks on the menu are fabulous. Great variety and you need to try more than one. Service was exceptional, staff was extremely attentive. Great place to go.

My husband and I took the opportunity to enjoy a brunch at Volt. It was a wonderful experience. We were greeted warmly and seated promptly. The food choices were varied and the food itself attractive and delicious. We can highly recommend our choices: the salmon toast, the soft scrambled eggs, the calamari, and the cheese plate. The server was attentive but we never felt rushed. We enjoyed every moment of our time together at Volt! We will return soon.

Selected the Chef’s tasting menu, with wine pairings. Waiter knew the menu, ingredients and why the wine pairing was selected. Service was attentive throughout the meal (3.5 hours!). Minimalist dining room was comfortable and noise levels were fine, even as the room filled.

My issue with Volt is that the wines were overpriced (at leat 4 to 1 markup). There was a limited
selection of modestly priced wine (these were $50 to $80). Most of the wines were priced in
excess of $80.
We went for brunch and service was very good.

Volt is a complete joke. The food is edible because you only get a small bite, but there was nothing that I would want to actually sit down and eat ever again. The price was also absolutely outrageous for what you get. I will not be returning.

I came to Volt for my spouse’s birthday and the meal/expierence was phenomenal! We both did the tasting menu and every course was a delicious adventure. During the entire dining experience I could not stop smiling because the food was fun, different, and exciting to my taste buds. The servers were also great. They say that a great experience and quality will keep a customer coming back even dispite cost. This is the case with Volt. I cannot wait to go back again.

the experience was really memorable and the service is outstanding. We never had to ask for anything and the people were so friendly. Love the cookies you get to take home with you! . My only comment is that all of the entrees were highly salted.. something I'm not used to and I think it took away from the actual flavor of the food. But--it's a great place to go for a nice occasion.

I've been coming to Volt a few times a year for the past 8 years or so and am always amazed at the creative, fresh menu. I've recently moved away and am no longer living in Frederick, so this was just a weekend visit and we managed to eat at Volt twice - dinner Friday night and then we came back for brunch on Saturday morning. Everything was great of course, but the two winning dishes of the evening were the scallops and the roast duck - which was probably one of the best duck preparations I've had in my entire life! Exquisite.

Had a wonderful experience. Went for daughters birthday dinner. Staff was more than excellent, and made us all feel welcomed. Their food was wonderful. Dont be fooled by the portions. We were starting to get full by the time we got the main course. And their desserts...I would go there just for the desserts. Amazing and artistic and so creative...I am so jealous I don't have that talent. Cost wasn't too bad. I wanna go back to get the tasting menu, it's a collection of different plates, 10 I think. Would be perfect for date night. Good job Volt!!!

While we enjoyed our experience, it is a unique experience. We chose the tasting menu on a Sunday. It's a one-of-a-kind experience, not to sound cliche. Off that particular tasting menu, I would recommend a smaller portion of the raw scallops. You have to like and appreciate sushi. Since it isn't our preference, it seems a waste to have uneaten delicacy left. Also, I would recommend at maximum 2 servers instead of the 4-5. It made the experience a bit disjointed. I appreciate the culinary selections but one element remaining will always be the relational experience of server-to-customer-to-server. Feeling like your server can relate to you while dining means the customer will not only return for another experience, but the customer will bring others (or recommend). (Lastly, our glasses in which the sparkling water was served in had an odor. I highly recommend the sniff test before placing the glass on the table.) If we try VOLT again, we'll try the brunch selections -- but we decided to go "all out" with the tasting menu. Thank you!

Brunch. Main dishes were underwhelming, possibly because nothing came out hot. Desserts were good but we wouldn’t have ordered them if they weren’t part of the 3 course menu.
