The next morning I told my wife I wanted to get down earlier to get a few raspberries. We saw the same group, I kid not, walking about ten pounds of bacon back to their table.
If the family in question ate all of the food that they took, then I have zero problem with this. It is not the responsibility of the guests to be mindful of leaving food for others at a luxury hotel; it is the hotel's responsibility to assure proper supply.

Of course, if they just commandeered it all to have it for themselves and left two thirds of it to waste, that would be beyond the pale.
