    As soon as Mark started to eat

    Have I made any mistakes?

    As soon as Mark started to eat, he noticed that something was wrong. When a waiter came over, Mark said, "I ordered a veal steak, but this on the plate is an old ox." The waiter blushed, apologised and went with the plate back to the kitchen. He returned about twenty minutes later with the right order and told Mark that was on the restaurant.

    ...but this on the plate is an old ox."

    The common phrase is "on the house".

    ...went with took the plate back to the kitchen

    told Mark that the meal/food was on the restaurant house.
