A customer at Gordon Ramsay’s steakhouse has been left with a huge bill after they, unfortunately, read the menu wrong.
The customer, Jeffrey Paige, was dining at Ramsey’s Atlantic City restaurant when they made the very expensive mistake of misreading the menu. But, despite the extortionate bill, Paige has said he “regrets nothing” as he “enjoyed the hell” out of his meal.
Paige and his girlfriend made a reservation for outdoor dining for Gordon Ramsay Steak at Harrah’s last year when he made the mistake.
At the time, he planned to splurge on some American Wagyu beef, but while there he noticed the Triple Seared Japanese A5 – considered to be the finest cut available and known as the Kobe cut – was on the menu for what he believed to be a very low price.
Paige thought that the Kobe cut was priced at $35 for 4 ounces compared to $84 for 8 ounces of Wagyu.
Speaking with the Mirror, he explained that he had never “had real deal Kobe.”
“It was like nothing else you’ll ever have. Melt in your mouth delicious,” he said. “We also ordered a couple of sides, appetizers, and my girlfriend had chef Ramsay’s famous beef wellington for the first time ever.
“All in all an amazing meal and we were glad we could support the restaurant and its staff during these challenging times. And I still couldn’t believe Kobe was cheaper than Wagyu! Or so I thought.”
But, after enjoying their meal, the couple were met by something less enjoyable… A bill totaling more $600. Yikes.
The couple’s meal cost a staggering amount as they soon discovered that Paige had ordered the Kobe, which was in fact $35 per ounce, not per 4 ounces.
Fortunately, though, Paige handled the surprise very well and he has “no regrets” about his choice.
Paige also told the Mirror: “My family and I are huge Gordon Ramsay fans, we watch his shows – Hell’s Kitchen, Masterchef – 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.”
Well, we certainly know how we’d react to a $600 bill!
