Buen ambiente, aun que en general el lugar y rumbo no son de lo más amigables. Buenq selección de ceevezas, ya que sin ser la más extensa, tienen excelentes cervezas, incluso algunas muy buenas añejadas. El precio es justo y el servicio sumamente básico. Aun así muy recomendable.

I guess Im just too old for this shit, classic dive bar, smells bad, sticky tables, grumpy bartenders, decent selection but I am just not into it.

Historic bar in SF!!! Tap selection is awesome and solid ( very similar to the San Diego one!) cool ambiance, always very crowdy! Bottle selection was good, but maybe I was expecting a little bit more... The service was pretty bad (maybe cause of the amount of people!). I know that maybe I am the only one in the world, but I prefer the SD location. Hope to see one day this place and the bartenders more relaxed and have a chat with them!

Came by for a few visits during my SF stay. Dunno man, I just reckon Toronado rocks. From my limited experience here everyone was pretty cool. Great beers, surly staff, byo food, happy hour Pliny, chatty locals, good music, beery paraphernalia all over the place, dive atmosphere. Loved it.

Not my kind of place I guess, bartenders are grumpy, beer lines could use a good cleaning, cheap beer during the day. Smells pretty bad in the bathrooms.

Proper divey feel to this gaff. Unbelievable tap selection for an outsider like myself - too much choice to be fair. Happy hour was when I came so Pliny was five dollars per pint - can’t say fairer than that. Some nice US sours on offer too, interesting to try a few of them. in 6oz pours. A few cask handpumps on offer, which was a surprise - didn’t get round to trying anything from them, but a good few people were. Service was pretty rough and ready, but that’s the vibe of the place - the bloke behind the bar had some great banter in him though. For me, without the epic beer selection, this gaff would be a shitpiece - haven’t quite embraced the divebar culture yet. Still, this place is a must visit when in the city. Get a sausage sarnie from next door and bring it in too - delicious stuff.

I love this place. Four real ale pumps, a great selection of local and Belgian beer, a punk rock attitude, and the ability to go to the Rosamund sausage place next door and get the best sausages on the planet to enjoy with one’s beer. Bathrooms are a bit frightening, and sometimes the bartenders can be a little gruff, but otherwise, perfection.

Petite place très intéressante selon moi. Collection de cabaret, de fanions, de bouteilles et toute sorte d’autre trucs accrochés au murs. Belle sélection de bières en fût. Le service laissait un peu à désirer. Un être antipathique travaillait derrière le comptoir au moment de ma visite, mais il n’était pas impressionable. N’empêche, qu’avoir accès à de La Bear Republic et de Russian River en fût était très agréable.

Visited rather early on a Wednesday in August 2013. Thankfully the place was not noisy or crowded during my visit. The selection was very good, I only concentrated on the taps. Pliny the Elder for 5 USD, what a steel! I also bought a bottle of Firestone PNC for 25 USD to go. The woman behing the bar was quite a character, but the service was fast and "friendly" in a different way. They seems to have a lot of self confidence at this place. If visiting SF again I will for sure visit Toronado again.
