Atmosphere: a really dark and smaller place that smells like stale beer. its really crowded inside, though its at least large enough that finding a seat won't be too difficult if you don't bring too many friends.
Selection: near perfect. they have a large bottle list of belgians and a really large tap list of good and rare beers. various russian river beers as well as many beers i haven't heard of...which doesn't happen often.
Service: this was absolutely awful. there were 2 terribly rude bartenders. they also have a very poor knowledge of beer. i asked for the 3F Oude Kriek, which i pointed out to them on the menu...and they brought me a bottle of a different kriek beer. i told them it was wrong, so they go back and bring back a new, but wrong, kriek. i told them it was wrong so they left and didn't come back to take my order for another 5 minutes. i don't care if you're not a beer snob, but don't get annoyed at me if you work at a premiere beer bar and don't even know anything about the beers you have. First and only bar that i ever refused tip at.

We stopped in starting at 3pm on a Friday and it was a great time to be there. We were able to get a seat in the bar area, rather than the back room (which is dark and quiet). It was 3/4 full and we stayed for a few hours. We left around 7pm and it was just starting to fill up.
The day-time bartender is good, but a bit of curmudgeon. Maybe that's his charm? When they changed over at about 5pm, it was like night and day, super friendly and engaging.
I thought the bottle list was a little weak when we visited, but I must admit, I had previously decided I was pulling the trigger on anything super rare they may have.
The tap list is great as expected. Toronado has a good reputation, lots of reviews, and I can promise that it is as advertised still to this day. If you haven't been, go and enjoy.
