Expected properties missing from response for certain locations

I have been working with the new API endpoint, and I've found that in a small number of the locations I'm working with, properties that are supposed to be in the API response according to the documentation are missing. One case is location 16158653233248478397; when I request a list of its reviews, the response contains every documented property with the exception of the "reviews" property. The response looks like this (I have obfuscated the next page token):



  "averageRating": 4.3000001907348633,

  "totalReviewCount": 18,

  "nextPageToken": "xxxxx"



I tried making a request that included the page token to see if it would return any content, but it returned an identical response (with an identical page token).


Another irregularity I found is that for at least certain locations, the "averageRating" property is missing. This is the case with location 312846143511102100, for example.

We will update you in a post on this thread once this issue has been fixed. Please stay tuned for updates and thank you for your patience!
