Any dinner recommendations in Aptos area?

We are going to celebrate a birthday next weekend, staying at Seascape. Are there any places for dinner that you would recommend? We've eaten at Shadowbrook. It's a lovely and unique place, but the food is just "okay". Looking for some new choices.

    Also, Ma Maison for french food in a nice setting is a short drive away.

      We ended up at Theos. Service was nice. The food was not bad, but looked better than it tasted. We liked the atmosphere. After hearing lots of good things on this board, maybe I should try again.

        Sadly, Theo's is now closed. I guess it didnt do so well with our Nicci Trip

    2. Oswald has reopened, but can't recall any new posts. I'd be nice to hear that they're back at least at their former level.
