A New Jersey man who thought he ordered a $37.50 bottle of wine got a huge shock when the total bill was over $4000.

According to NJ.com, Joe Lentini was attending a business dinner at Bobby Flay Steak at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa in Atlantic City and was asked by the host to pick a bottle of wine for the table.

Lentini said he asked for the waitress to recommend one. She reportedly suggested a bottle of wine and told Lentini the cost was “thirty-seven fifty.”

When the dinner was over, the check was handed to the host with a total of $4,700.61. The bottle of wine was included at a cost of $3,750.

Management told Lentini the best they could do was reduce the price to $2,200.

Lentini and two other diners agreed to split the bill.
