The Quai d'Orsay is a quai in the VIIe arrondissementmarker of Parismarker, part of the left bank of the Seinemarker, and the name of the street along it. The Quai becomes the Quai Anatole France east of the Palais Bourbonmarker, and the Quai de Branly west of the Pont de l'Almamarker.

The French Ministry of Foreign Affairs is located on the Quai d'Orsay, and thus the ministry is often called the Quai d'Orsay by metonymy.

The Quai (rue de Bac) has historically played an important role in French art as a location to which many artists came to paint along the banks of the river Seine.

The building of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs was being developed between 1844 and 1855 by Lacornée. The statues of the facade were created by the sculptor Henri Triqueti (1870).
