In the ten or so years the Flying Fork has been open, nothing ever changes. Yes the food is pretty good, but it is stuck in a time warp. Even the specials are minor variations from the unchanging menu. If you've never been there, it will be fairly new (though not so different than other fairly good Italian style restaurants) and you'll probably enjoy it. But if you eat there for years, it is boring. There are few restaurants of any quality in this area. Locals find themselves at the Flying Fork frequently (and tend to overrate it), but the Vagabond in Crawford and the Living Farm Cafe in Paonia are better.
The two dining rooms are very noisy—no carpet, no sound deadening materials anywhere—and it is hard to hear each other. The chairs scrape on the floor with a screeching sound and are disturbing. It can be hot inside too because of poor ventilation in the summer. The 2 booths are uncomfortable and cramped. I'd recommend the other two restaurants I mentioned; they are a bit quirky, but the food is more adventurous.
