A man was left with an eye-watering bill after not reading the menu properly at a Gordon Ramsay restaurant.

Jeffrey Paige visited the 56-year-old TV chef's steakhouse in Virgin Atlantic City with his girlfriend to celebrate the world opening up following the pandemic.

The original plan for the joyous occasion was to treat himself to American Wagyu beef but once he looked at the menu, he noticed the Triple Seared Japanese A5 - which is known as Kobe and deemed to be the best cut of beef available.

Jeffrey misread the menu and thought that there was an irresistible offer that would cost him $35 for four ounces of Kobe, compared to the $84 he was going to spend on eight ounces of Wagyu. So he went for it and ordered the Japanese steak.

"I had never had real deal Kobe," he wrote on Reddit. "It was like nothing else you’ll ever have. Melt in your mouth delicious. We also ordered a couple of sides and 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!" he said, before adding: "Or so I thought."

However, despite devouring the delicious meal thoroughly, Jeffrey was left stunned after realizing that it was not the amazing deal he had thought once the bill had arrived.

So he and his girlfriend decided to scan the menu again and that's when she learned that it was $35 for an ounce of Kobe and not per four ounces - meaning the bill totaled more than $600!

Nevertheless, Jeffrey took full ownership of the expensive mistake and told the outlet that he regretted nothing, even if it came at a staggering price.

He 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," he added.

All well that ends well...except for that eye-watering price.
