You end up with a much smaller table and the benches become much more cramped. The seat cushions on the 'u' portion are also quite narrow. We went with the standard dinette and have no regrets. Much roomier.
Exactly, you think you can seat more people at a u-shaped dinette, but, it's just the opposite. The table for the 4 person dinette (shown below) is actually pretty small for 4 place settings to start with.

Cut that nearly in half and you've reduced a 4 person dinette table to a 3 person card table.
