What do you think of square/rectangular plates used in restaurants, instead of round?

I care only about the food on them. Square or odd shaped plates supposed to look more sophisticated/cultured/fancy than plain ol' round plates. Pretty sure they charge more for the food, just because of that

For home? I don't really care as long they look good and are not chipped.

It doesn't matter at all to me what plates are used in restaurants.

I had already thought that. Restaurants are charging a lot more for the food and serving it on square plates somehow justifies it.

I noticed that too. Anything that makes a restaurant appear elevated (white tablecloth, fancy dishes, silverware, waitstaff nice uniforms, long aprons, ambience, selection of music, anything unique...)
will be reflected on the bill.

I'm a Fiestaware fan, and I prefer it in traditional round. Google Image "square turquoise Fiestaware" (or choose your favorite color). The square looks oddball, affected, peculiar...not for me.

Those on your pictures are butt ugly. I don't think any restaurant would use them.
But there are some that look very nice:

I am a fan of plain white china.
