The situation: as of now, I have 781 rep on Japanese.SE (a beta site). This grants me access to the First Posts, Late Answers, Close Votes, and Reopen Votes queues on main, as well as the Close Votes and Reopen Votes queues on meta. On main, I have a link to "review" in the top bar. On meta, however, I do not have a link to "review". If I go directly to the /review URL, though, I can access the queues just fine.
This appears to be a bug of some sort - once I have access to at least one review queue on meta (which happens at 500 rep on beta sites), I should see the "review" link in the top bar.
