You are having dinner with your significant other. He receives a phone call. He has a full conversation. What do you do? I felt disrespected and left. Was I wrong?

I'll swap genders here, because I'm a straight male.
It depends on the level of urgency of that call. If it was her boss who wanted some urgent information, or a friend/family who had some emergency, I wouldn't mind at all. But if it was just someone who wanted to have mindless chatter with her, I would be really disappointed.0

I guess it depends on your situation and how your boyfriend is. The guy I am seeing sometimes gets emergency calls, and he has to take them. I totally get it. I don't get mad. Maybe it's a family emergency or just a friend in need. I am just happy when he comes back. I see no reason to get mad. I can see if he's constantly leaving dinner. But if he respectfully leaves then comes back there's nothing wrong with that.
If it was someone who was just looking to make plans tomorrow, well they can wait. I personally screen calls before I answer, because if it's not important then I won't answer. Most people can send a message to you via text or something else if it's not urgent.0
