A Gordon Ramsay steakhouse diner received an eye-watering bill after misreading the menu.
Jeffrey Paige and his girlfriend visited Ramsay’s Atlantic City restaurant and planned to treat themselves to a delicious meal.
In particular, they had their eyes on the American Wagyu beef, which is known for its amazing texture and flavour.
However, things didn’t go to plan when Paige decided to try something else instead.

When browsing the menu, the diner came across the ‘real deal’ Triple Seared Japanese A5 that he believed was at a bargain price.
This particular style of steak is most typically known as Kobe and is deemed by many to be one of the finest cuts available.
Misreading the menu, Paige was under the impression that this cut was priced at $35 for four ounces, while the Wagyu was $84 for eight ounces.
“I had never had real deal Kobe,” the diner told The Mirror.

After tucking into their meals, Paige and his girlfriend were then left speechless when their bill came to a whopping $600 – which was a lot more than they had budgeted for.
Confused, the diner went back to the menu and double-checked he had read it right, and realised that the Kobe cut was actually $35 per ounce, instead of every four ounces.
Although the meal cost a lot more than Paige had bargained for, he’s said he ‘regrets nothing’ and he and his girlfriend thoroughly enjoyed it.

He commented: “All in all an amazing meal and we were glad we could support the restaurant and its staff during these challenging times.”
Paige also took to Reddit and opened up about his blunder, joking: “I wish Chef Ramsay was there to come out and call me a donut for f***ing this up lol.
“I enjoyed the hell out of it. No regrets baby!”
He continued: “My family and I are huge Gordon Ramsay fans, we watch his shows – Hell’s Kitchen, Master Chef – and I’ve been to his restaurants before and loved everything we’ve gotten.
“The steak and the experience were unforgettable, and if I had to make this blunder at any restaurant in the world, I’m glad it was at Chef Ramsay’s.”

Many people took to the comments and shared their thoughts on the diner’s error, with many saying they’d experienced similar situations.
One person responded: “That’s pretty common at super high-end places. You gotta be real careful.”
Another added: “6oz of A5 nearly killed me in Kobe, [the] richest food I have ever eaten and my god I would do it again in a heartbeat.”
While a third commented: “Went to Narisawa in Tokyo with this exact mindset. And walked out around $1200 poorer.
“Absolutely worth every penny.”
