The ambiance is very pleasing and subdued but upscale, the noise level is very subdued, patrons can speak to one another in conversational tones. The service was excellent and very attentive and the staff is first class. This is what is now called a small plate dining experience, you need to order at least from four different sections of the... More

Went here for an early Thanksgiving brunch with the family and we weren't let down. Went with the five course tasting menu, and it was an array of seasonal foods that didn't let down. The cocktails were unique, the service was always attentive and on point, and the food was always delicious.

We have had the pleasure to visit Volt for several years. From table 21 to stopping by in the bar. Whatever the experience, we have always been treated with respect and provided a high level of service with masterful cocktails and delicious food.

We were looking forward to a great dinner after having heard about Volt's reputation for some time and not being able to visit previously from DC. The environment is nice, in a warm renovated historical house, staff is welcoming and attentive, but food is certainly at the level expected from Volt's reputation. Most courses were average at best, dessert was... More

My wife and I have had Volt on the list of special restaurant trips we wanted to take for a while. I've been a fan of the Voltaggio brothers ever since Top Chef. We finally decided to pull the trigger and wow, I'm glad we did. That said, the fact that we weren't there for a special occasion did seem... More

We traveled from Fairfax, VA to Frederick for the week-end to celebrate our anniversary. I booked our 14th Anniversary dinner at Volt because of the reputation of Chef Voltaggio. The food was inventive and excellent. The staff was attentive and knowledgeable. Kudos to all of the staff, sommelier, and servers because it is obvious that they take pride in what... More

Excellent food with superb wine-pairing and tasting-sized portions with many, many courses - an evening-long dinner in a beautiful old mansion in old-town Frederick. Save it for a very special occasion, but advance reservations are necessary.

Rock music with exquisite food! Terrific place for a special occasion, especially the tasting menu. Loved nine of the ten courses, and had great fun trying all of them. The soup course was superb, but really everything was beautifully crafted and presented. The service was very attentive and the atmosphere was calm with tasteful modern decor. A meal we will...

Frederick is hopping and the dining scene is no better than at Volt. Small plates, well presented, and DELICIOUS. Sat at the bar and was treated to a tutorial on the many custom cocktails. Dinner started with prawns, then charred cabbage, goat cheese and mushroom pasta, and a small lamb entree. All really really good, though my favorites was the... More

Came with family for the 3 course tasting menu at lunchtime on a Saturday. The dining room was beautiful. All wait staff were charming and helpful and knowledgeable. The descriptions of each dish were amazing. The presentations were timed perfectly and the dishes all looked like pieces of art. However, they forgot to taste the dishes. Our party of 5... More

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.
