To book a table at Cai Yi Xuan, the easiest option is to call Four Seasons Hotel Beijing directly at 86-10-5695-8522. The restaurant also permits making reservations online through its website, which has a link to OpenTable. If you haven’t booked, you’ve still got a good chance of bagging a table for two for a lunch or dinner by just showing up. Although the private rooms (China’s preferred method of high-end dining) do fill up, so if you have a group and want to reserve one of the eight, it’s best to do it several days in advance. You might want to visit the Beijing restaurant beforehand to choose your room, since the design schemes vary wildly — some are intimate, darkly attired in burgundy and black, others are brighter and potentially more conducive to dinner and conversation.
