Volt has been on my "bucket list" for awhile. I was thrilled to be going to celebrate my birthday. The team at Volt is amazing. We were dressed very casually and though business casual is preferred, they seated us and treated us wonderfully. The food is an experience, which is what I wanted. The main course - monkfish and rockfish were underwhelming. All else was incredible and worth the cost and experience.
Fantastic dinner - great attention to detail - everything was perfect. Service was impeccable everything tasted delicious. Bathroom was super clean. Bar was small but had a great conversation with the bartender about vodka and tequila. Overall an excellent experience and hope to return in the near future.
Volt was okay, definitely hadn’t higher expectations. We drove about an hour to get there for my husbands birthday so really expected to be wowed. I made a special request for seating arrangements for my husbands birthday and for our first time at the restaurant, and that request was definitely ignored. The restaurant is super quiet, which would be a good thing if people weren’t sitting at tables directly next to each other. It was incredibly awkward hearing 3 different conversations happening to either side of us and having to whisper to not be heard. Maybe having some music playing in the background could drown out everybody’s work day experiences or political viewpoints. Whispering was also incredibly uncomfortable because while the tables are wider than normal 2-tops, they are long...forcing people to speak louder to hear each other. The food was good I guess, but we couldn’t get over the awkwardness of the seating arrangements which kind of just ruined the rest of the vibe of the restaurant.
The staff was great and the food was amazing! Each course was a "taste adventure" and not a single one was bad! Definitely good for a special occasion.
First time visitor, and not disappointed. Wine pairing with chef's tasting menu was well thought out. Definitely worth a visit.
If you want to celebrate a special occasion, this is the place to do it. Amazing food, great service - you can't go wrong. We did the tasting menu with the wine pairings at this most recent visit and it is well worth the price. Our server was great - there was a small mishap when he spilled my husband's champagne into his lap but he was extremely apologetic, topped off both of our glasses and then took our cocktails off the bill at the end as an additional apology. (And we weren't even mad or complaining about it!) Just a great experience all the way around!
Exceptional food. Truly inventive flavor combos. Timing was uneven for the tasting menu. First courses came too quickly, long lapses between later courses.
Volt was awesome! The food was delicious, carefully prepared, and clearly _designed_. The staff was at 100%. Dinner was actually very reasonably priced at about $45 per person: we spent most of our money on wine expertly selected by the sommelier :). Volt offers two fixed menus - 3 course prix fixe meal option with an optional 4th tasting course, or a 10 course tasting menu, with optional pairings. We went with the dinner, because we arrived rather late and didn’t want to discommode the staff, but it looked tantalizing.
Three course Sunday brunch was amazing! Will definitely go back to try some of the other offerings.
Food as always, is spectacular. The service can be a bit "snooty" however, this was not the case on this evening. Everything was perfect. Great bar scene, creative cocktails exceptional food and perfect service. Great Time!!
We did the brunch chefs tasting menu with beverage pairings. Everything was delicious! Highly recommend
We had brunch at Volt last weekend and it was simply outstanding. It’s amazing that after so many years in operation, they still put out delicious food/art and high quality service. At $35 for their 3 course brunch, it is also a superb value.
This is hands-down the best restaurant i have been to. Their tasting menu was JUST INCREDIBLE and the wine pairing were one of the best (fyi, we are avid wine drinkers and know our wines well). All the wines paired so well with each course that each one of them made the food taste even better and vice versa, it matched the texture and the spices/flavors of the dish. Couldn't have asked for a better place to celebrate my husband's birthday. And as if we didn't have enough, we are already considering re-visiting Volt soon and this time with the whole family.
MUST TRY - their tasting menu with wine pairing.
I've been wanting to dine at Volt for many years. It was worth waiting for-- the best food I've had anywhere in a very long time. From the exquisite carrot and foie gras macaron amuse bouche to the plate of confections generously offered at the end of the meal, everything was masterful, beautifully presented, and popping with deep flavor. We might have to go back and do the whole tasting menu!
Nice experience at the Chef's Counter with a 15-course meal that was well-paced and lovely. Cocktails and wine were terrific! A nice highlight. It was neat to be seated right behind the garde manger and have a clear view into the kitchen. Very inspirational to see how focused and hard the staff works in creating a great dining experience for guests.
We came to Volt for our anniversary and were blown away! We were greeted at the door and offered the “chef’s table” section- which we did not expect and absolutely loved! We spoke with the sommelier about Maryland wine and he was honest and approachable about their selections. Stan and Justin were warm, professional, and knowledgeable. Stan even gave us a tour of the building after dinner! The staff was very accommodating to our dietary restrictions and we were excited to feel included instead of being a burden. We mentioned that we worked in restaurants and they sent us out a free course just because- so sweet! Every course was carefully thought out and well prepared and we especially enjoyed the dessert course (including the complimentary coconut sorbet)! The pastry chef is very creative and you can tell she’s having fun. Thank you so much to everyone at Volt! We are still talking about how much we enjoyed our experience.
Every dish was truly amazing!
Our first Brunch at Volt. Food was wonderful and prefectly prepared and presented. Service was wonderful as well.
We ate at Volt recently on a Saturday night. The restaurant was about half filled. Hence, we were even more disappointed that the service was very slow. (Once seated, we waited 10 minutes before someone came by to ask if we wanted a drink). Took about another 10 minutes for the drinks to come. Service was similarly slow throughout. Most of the dishes we tried were good, if on the salty side. The mustard greens in one of my dishes, though, had not been washed, hence they were crunchy (with dirt). While I'm a huge fan of dessert, the truffles, macarons, candy, and big cookies that come with the check may be overkill.
We had a terrific experience at Volt. They were easily able to accommodate vegan dining for three courses, and provided candies off the menu for dessert. Another friend enjoyed the tasting menu with paired wine - great experience with incredibly creative dishes.
The vegan dishes were fantastic, and my meat/seafood eating companions were all extremely happy with their meals as well.
Wine Director, TJ, is very knowledgeable and personable - he was happy to answer questions and provided great explanation of every wine brought to the table.
Excellent on all counts - waitstaff couldn’t have been more perfect, and the food - exquisite!!!!!!!
5 star service! 5 star food! Treat yourself! An experience
We had the Chefs Tasting Menu with beverage pairings. Best. Meal. Ever.
We were greeted warmly when we arrived and our table was ready. The servers were helpful and attentive. The food was excellent, visually interesting, and well prepared. Our starters were the beets and the shrimp and grits--so good. We can also recommend the waffles and the goat cheese ravioli. We weren't rushed and had an enjoyable time. Looking forward to our next visit.
Disappointed. Looked forward to the reservation after hearing wonderful things. Appeared server forgot about our party of 2, waited 15 minutes after receiving cocktail menu and then having to flag him down. Kindly bought drink for the wait. Fois gras was delish but standard. Fish dish was good but barely warm. Lamb dish cooked well but had a lot of fat and little taste with fava bean puree as side.
Very odd experience; a tiny spider lowered onto table as it might in a car. Gross but no big deal, no food around. Second and much larger random spider crawled across table while waiting for dessert.
Wouldn't make the drive back from Arlington for Volt unfortunately.
Volt was amazing and everyone should go there. Food was great and service was incredible.
This is a restaurant for a date or dinner with a significant other. Even then, the service is pretentious and the food pedestrian.
Plan on a VERY long experience. I had never been there before. I had a reservation for 5:45, got sat almost right away, didn’t get out until 8:40. We had to ask for our check since we were all wanting to get out. I was there for a birthday and had other plans. If you want an entire evening this may be your place. I want to eat good food get out and get my evening going. Two girls there had a personality everyone else seemed uptight. It really slow service. By the end we were so tired of being there and just wanted to get up and get our evening on. Food was decent, rockfish and tuna were great.
Great way to celebrate my husband's birthday! They did a special cake for him. Great food and drinks!
All servers were amazingly knowledgeable with each dish. The service experience was perfection as was my meal. I order the chef’s tasting.... each bite was fabulous.
Definitely will return and enjoy my perfectly
Staff was great and the food was fantastic! They were out of a bottle of wine that we asked for, so they gave us a bottle that was $10 more for the price of the one we asked for. Highly recommend!
Fabulous dinner and LOVED the “for the road” chocolate chip cookie!!
Absolutely amazing food!
Four of us ordered various courses from the a la carte menu and tasted each others choices. The main course choice was limited so if you are a picky eater you should check the online menu for an idea of what you might like. All our choices were good, presented beautifully, and just enough to enjoy. We each had three courses which was a filling dinner along with the special chef's additions and the bread choices. Desserts were interesting and plated beautifully. We enjoyed the little extras like a savory treat to begin the meal, candies at the end, and especially delicious chocolate chip cookie to take home! I recommend this restaurant for special occasions because the prices can add up to an expensive meal.
Food was excellent as well as the service. Very knowledgable and waited on every need. We had the chefs tasting menu and everything was fantastic. Our dinner lasted a lot longer than we expected put that was only positive.
Met a long time friend for brunch and ordered the tasting menu, allowing plenty of time to catch up while trying new flavor combinations. Every course was outstanding, with highest marks to the goat cheese ravioli with honey bacon sauce, the halibut with Romesco and lemon curd, and the decadent chocolate basil pudding with coconut ice cream and chocolate bacon rosemary crumbles. The food was extraordinary and the service was friendly and ultra capable. I look forward to our next visit.
Well presented and tasty food, very attentive service, a quiet venue, and all at reasonable prices. Well worth a try.
I met a friend there to celebrate her birthday, as we do for each other for the last few years. As always before, the service was superb and the food was delicious. I love the creative combinations and presentation. Of course, I'll be back!
My girlfriend and I did the chefs counter 15 course meal. It was amazing!! The servers pay close attention to you and some of the chefs will interact with you ( makes it a little more personal) the food was delicious I tried things I never have before and never thought I would
Fantastic food, ambience and vibe. Excellent for any special occasion. Will be back!
