Restaurant portion sizes ... and what to do about server's snide remark?

Having dinner with a friend.

Friend orders 2 entrees.

Waiter, with requisite smirk and sarcasm, says, "Good thing we aren't an all-you-can-eat place. That's a hearty appetite you got!"

Uh, huh.

Ok, whatever.

We ignore the comment, but the rest of the meal was (how do you say?) a bit uncomfortable.

So my question is, who decides that a restaurant's portion size is the "correct" amount of food for all people?

(As an aside, friend is training for a triathlon and "needs" the extra calories, but that's an entirely different thread ... on a different board.)
