Why is it nearly impossible to leave a review?

Hi there.
I have used google business before and leaving a review was a breeze. Before Google changed the G+ pages. 
Now the Google+ page looks different and it's impossible to leave a review. 

 

My business info is

Star Car Wraps

409 Phippen Waiters Road, Bay B, Dania Beach, Fl 33004

954-243-4277

https://plus.google.com/+StarCarWrapsDaniaBeach

 

There is no way to lave a review on my google+ page. I checked it with my personal Google account ( which is not a manager on the page, but also checked with my wife's google account which is definitely has nothing to do with my page but no review button)

If you search for Star Car Wraps Dania Beach my page comes up on the right. I see my image ( logo) the address, the street view, etc but no review button.

The places API does not work either!

I am frustrated and going around trying to find out what's going on and somehow I ended up with this link:

The review button does work on this one but its just weird. Google suggesting a correction on the left. Besides that, nothing else shows up.

Interesting... I would contact support to see if there is something more going on here. I don't see an option to review your business either.

Click on the My Business section in your dashboard, then support, then "Contact us..." and choose your best contact method.

Hi Csaba

Since the roll out of new Google+ there is no way to leave a review (or read a review) on a Google+ page. The only way to see reviews is to either use classic Google+ (which is almost impossible to get to) or to use the Maps / Local search functionality.

As you've mentioned, the last link you provided does work if someone wants to leave a review (I got the pop up box immediately) or you can use this link as well: https://goo.gl/oOCQNr (or create your own pretty URL if you want :) )
