A woman has sparked a discussion on social media after accidentally ordering a $300 steak at an anniversary dinner with her significant other.

Daniela - who goes by the handle @ikingdani on TikTok - shared a video to the social media platform of an eye-watering moment from her two-year anniversary.

The creator said in the video that her partner recommended that she get the wagyu sirloin, but instead, she mistakenly ordered a regular 8-ounce wagyu - which brought the total price of her meal to over $300. This was significantly higher than her partner's $48 salmon dish.

Daniela wrote: "I thought he was going to break up with me," as she showed her partner jokingly shaking his hand as he inserted his card to pay for the dinner.

Check out Daniela's TikTok below:

If the bill wasn’t startling enough, the video amassed 4 million views and 454.6K likes, as of this writing, with many users debating over who should have paid for what.

While Daniela's boyfriend did pay the bill, some people thought that she should have put something towards the outrageous price.

One user wrote: "You should’ve offered to pay half. That’s a big bill."

Another commented: "A good partner would pay their part of the bill in a situation like this or at the very least offer to."

A third user joked: "You can’t get mad if he waits 8 years to propose. He’s gotta save up all over again for a ring."

Others thought Daniela should have offered to pay the whole bill, with one Tiktok user writing: "The guilt would destroy me, I'd pay all I could and pay him back the rest later.

Meanwhile, others believed Daniela was not in the wrong and that the restaurant waiters should have informed them of the differences between the steaks.

One user commented: "Waiter should’ve said something," while another wrote: "The server should’ve confirmed that’s what you meant to order given the disparity in the dishes."

A user shared with Daniela that they experienced the same mishap, writing: "Took my hubby to dinner for his bday at a Michelin Star restaurant. apps, 24oz A5 Wagyu, drinks, dessert... $1200".

Daniela later reiterated that it had been an accident and she felt so terrible that left the restaurant in tears but her partner assured her that they would joke about the moment in a couple of months.

To make matters even worse, Daniela wrote in the comments section that the steak wasn't even worth the expensive price - making her meal worthless.

Still, the couple seemed to have handled the situation well and Daniela even found ways to make it back up to her boyfriend. When one user wrote: "you better have bought that man a PS5," she simply responded: "I did."
