Family treated me to retirement dinner at Volt. Upon entering we knew this would be an experience. Furnishings are graceful and the staff are all exceptionally helpful and personable. We had a private room and had the ten course tasting. From start to finish, the...More

You can find the menu on the website but I believe they do change from time to time, depending on what is in season or available as fresh. It's worth the visit!

Three of us ate there last month. Had 4 glasses of wine basic menu and tip was $350. The tasting menu is more than that so go in expecting a to pay more than that and factor a bottle of wine or pairing if that interests you.

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.
