Serving food: The bowl is round enough for liquids but flat enough for solids (esp. if there is a little gravy or jus), making it one of my most used plates. Soups, salads, stews, pastas -- just about everything looks wonderful.
That said, I wouldn't serve a NY strip, side of veg, and potato in these plates. That is much more suited to flat plate.
Stacked foods look beautiful. E.g. a little parsnip puree on the bottom, braised short rib, topped with a small salad on top looks restaurant quality.
Aesthetics: In my opinion this plate has excellent proportions between bowl size and rim width that create a visually pleasing aesthetic. Similarly styled plates often don't have a wide enough rim, throwing off the the elegant balance.
Price: A touch expensive at $15 a plate, is fair but a tad high. I'm a firm believer that one should have a stock of plates and reluctant to pick up 10 or 12. Exact servings like 4 or 6 is a mistake. You always need more than you think because of guests or the occasional broken plate
