Has anyone been to PauliMotos in Tysons Corner? Well, I have and let this be a warning to all: Steer Clear!!!! This past week I had one of the worst dining experiences of my life. They actually claim Iron Chef Morimoto is a part of this mess, I highly doubt it. I've been to his Philadelphia place and its great, not here. Without being too wordy I'll just do a word association in a sense:
Sushi--Overpriced, bland, and no way was that tuna sushi grade like our server claimed (more on him later)
Soup--Crab Chowder? Tasted like watered down egg drop soup, with no crab whatsoever. Hot and Sour? Looked like vomit in a cup (no one in our party dared to taste it)
Satay--The had a whole grill area dedicated to skewered foods. We ordered some but our server never brought them.
Entrees--The Mongolian Beef was a big plate of burnt beef and green onions in some brown water. The signature "Black Cod" was very dry and full of bones. The chicken salad which we split was missing one important ingredient.......the chicken.
Dessert--What are you kidding me after that experience we paid our check and went to Coastal Flats.
Service--Lets just say our server was a cross between a short version of Jim Carey's character in Dumb and Dumber and a pig's ass. We can't really remember his name is was something like Bill, Phil or Will. Whatever it was he was a complete idiot whom we only saw for our original order and the check placement.
Well folks in closing the moral of this posting is to steer clear of PauliMotos, unless of course you want to get the ultimate revenge against an ex by sending them a gift certificate.
