How fattening is restaurant food?

Below, a poster asks how fattening dim sum is.

I've always assumed that restaurant food in general rarely skimps on fat--since fat is very satisfying, and very tasty (butter, cream, olive oil, sesame oil, etc etc), and presumably a restaurant wants the patron to leave feeling satisfied, and that the diner has had a tasty meal.

Of course, if we're talking about something like plain steamed vegetables, then the calorie count is minimal.

Anyone have any comments on this, any disagreements, etc?
