That's very interesting, because, now that you mention it, that's
how I see it working with our 6' round tables. On the one hand,
it's easier to feel welcome to sit at a larger table. On the
other hand, in a noisy dining room it is harder to hear the
people across the table, so you end up having more smaller
conversations, which probably adds to the noise level....

For what it is worth,  according to feng shui and other design
patterns, diners tend to linger longer at rectangular tables as
opposed to round tables.  Put another way, if you are managing a
busy restaurant, round tables will keep the customers moving --
eating and getting out quickly  -- and profits rising.
