On the Monday night episode of his show The Late Late Show, Corden gave a monologue that explained his take on his recent back-and-forth with New York City restaurant Balthazar, whose owner slammed the TV host for bad customer behavior.

The star explained that in one incident, he and his wife sat down for breakfast at the eatery and informed their server that his wife has a serious food allergy.

She was apparently still brought the wrong order three times, and he said he "in the heat of the moment… made a sarcastic, rude comment about cooking it myself," which he added, "I deeply regret."

"I didn’t get up out of my seat," he continued. "I didn't call anyone names or use derogatory language. I've been walking around thinking that I hadn't done anything wrong, right, but the truth is I have.

"I made a rude comment, and it was wrong, it was an unnecessary comment, it was ungracious to the server," he added.

Corden's admission comes after the restaurant's owner, Keith McNally, deemed Corden the "most abusive customer" in its 25-year history and indefinitely banned him last week.

The comedian called McNally immediately and apologized for the mishap, and the ban was lifted. While the issue should have ended there, Corden said in an interview shortly after that the whole thing was "silly" and "beneath all of us" which prompted another response from McNally, demanding that Corden "at least admit he did wrong."

His latest apology seemed sincere, and will hopefully, and finally, settle the controversy for good.

James Corden announced back in April that he will be stepping down from The Late Late Show next year.
