It's not just the folks standing around. Yesterday took a sim out to a restaurant (their meal was stolen) and even the wait staff was stealing and eating food. Problem way out of control!
Holy skunk-sweat, this is annoying!
This has happened to me at Villa Bovine (Sim-owned, but different household attending) and at Chez Llama (NPC-owned).
What I do now, is I watch the other diners - and when anyone comes anywhere NEAR my Sims table, I use a cheat to reset them (to stop the interaction) and another to send them home.
Oooh, I hope this gets fixed soon!
Seriously, when is this going to be fixed? It's so annoying! The sit down at restaurants tweak mod works, but it causes last exception errors. I've been making everyone in the restaurant except my sims and the staff leave. Dine Out is barely playable now.

This has been since Island Living was installed. I have not tested without Island Living. I have tested the above in both the Dine Out restaurant and in my own Island Resort Build as a restaurant. Looks like my sims dates will be in bars from now on until this is fixed.
Given up on going to restaurants now because other guests are forever stealing food and can't complete dates cos the couple can't talk about food, its so infuriating - dodn't happen at all before the last update. Please fix this soon
I have literally stopped dining out with my Sims because this is so aggravating! You can’t even go on a dinner date now without having your meal and or cocktails stolen and if you order a second round those will be stolen to. When is this bug going to be fixed?
The Waitress! sole my Sim's ice cream. I've gotten used to the other diners taking food. This is a first. She does appear to be a glutton, tho.
Same thing happened with my sims. Every time my sim family would get their food and someone would come and eat it. I thought it was just my game as well. I don't use mods or CC. I had to stop sending my sims out to eat.
