Re: Chapter 3 Example Google API Broken
I would also like this question answered. You cannot fetch reviews with the sample code as is. Google says the Base Data Api is no longer available. Please supply a work around.

Re: Chapter 3 Example Google API Broken
I don't think there's an easy work around.

You're now supposed to use Search API for Shopping:
https://developers.google.com/shopping-search/v1/getting_started

but I don't think this supports restaurants.

After a little looking around, I came across the Google Places API:
https://developers.google.com/places/documentation/

This is probably what you want, but the data format is pretty different, so it's not an easy fix.
