If you are visiting the area, you have to visit. If you live in the City, this has to be a standard watering hole. Great beer on tap with solid options on cask. Always fresh. The staff is very helpful and quick to serve. I have been here both when a moderate crowd is present and when the place is packed, no matter the attendance the barkeeps are always on point. The crowd here is great; everyone is friendly and most are eager to talk beer. No food but a great sausage spot is next door. So bring over a sausage or two and have a great beer...or 5!
EDIT: So this review was posted when I first moved to SF and was very pumped on living near Toronado. The initial hype has since worn off and felt a revised post was in order. The atmosphere here is alright. Generally smells a bit foul and the place has hardly enough room to satisfy the crowds (unless you come during the day, which I highly suggest). The quality is good, but I have run into dirty lines so that knocks some points. Service can be adequate to atrocious, depending on when you're here and who is serving you. Selection can be very good or on par with the competitive list of other great beer bars in the city.

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.
