Definitely the best bar in San Diego in terms of selection. This is a fairly small place with a capacity of probably under 100. As we were here for San Diego Beer Week, the tap selection was pretty damn awesome, with many one-offs and limited releases available. We got to try the famed Cable Car, as well as a few other special ones. Food was very good (veggie/vegan friendly), and prices were very reasonable. Service was okay as well - no-nonsense and straight to the point. If you donít stop here when in San Diego, I donít know whatís wrong with you.

Really donít know why people complain about service. I walked in for the first time in my life and had a wonderful experience. Nate is the man to ask at the bar, incredible draft selection and bottles too (pricey). Had a really cool night hanging out at Toronado where I met lot of nice people. Iíll come back as soon as possible! Thanks Nate!!

Selection is great; however the service kills this place. Decent place but I there are far better places in San Diego.

Visited a few times since the first anniversary.

This is in a nice part of town near some other nice bars in a college-y part of town. This has a similar quality tap list to the one in SF (slightly better breweries in SD) and a cool bottle list if youíre into Lost Abbey but without the heart and soul of the dumpy original counterpart in SF. This place is just so sterile and could use a bit of soul. No metal on the jukebox, everything is clean and quiet and well behaved full of beerbros bottle sharing in the corner. Donít get me wrong, Iíd hang out here semi regularly if I was local but for my gas money and time Iíll go to Beachwood instead.

Great tap list, terrible service. You get a split second to tell them what you want or they walk away. Worth a visit but wouldnít go back. Itís the same in SF. Rude is not íedgyí or íRock & Rollí, Itís just rude.

Oh my what a draft selection! We started with Pliny the Elder, continued with a 120 minute IPA and then it just went on..... Great knowledgeable staff, good food and the place. A must visit if you are in San Diego.

Really nice cozy pub. Nice long bar with lots of stools. Extensive beers on tap and a great bottle selection. Food is pretty good. Only issues are the service, although efficient, is not particularly friendly. A must visit while in SD.

Iím at this place called Toronado but it doesnít feel like Toronado! Far different from the BS attitude you get in SF (which is still one of my favorite bars). These guys actually acknowledged me as I sat down, accepted my credit card for payment, and offered me an unsolicited taste of beer that I inquired about. What is this strange place again that is clearly misnamed?
