French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living
lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty
Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port
of call for folks in search of a good time and a great
story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs
across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied
around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively
well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the

Description
Galvez Restaurant has the privilege of occupying one the most beloved venue spaces in the French Quarter. Many generations of New Orleanians have shared wonderful memories within the walls of this beautiful venue. Galvez is committed to honoring those wonderful memories, and to creating many more to come. We are the French Quarter's best Riverfront dining venue featuring continental Spanish, French, and Creole cuisine with an outstanding array of mouth-watering tapas. Whether it is for a special celebratory dinner, or a Sunday afternoon brunch, the simple and honest flavor of our food will keep you coming back for more. Looking for the perfect accompaniment for your meal? Our full service bar boasts a complete array of specialty cocktails, most notably Chef Laura's Home Made Sangria. And did we mention that we have the prettiest dining room in the city? The Casa Roja overlooks the beautiful, moon lit Mississippi River. Our lover's corner, a lush and quiet corner with access to a small private balcony, is a perfect spot for anniversaries, romantic dinner dates, and wedding proposals. In essence, Galvez is the perfect choice for a romantic dinner for two, a relaxing brunch, or sharing a table full of tapas, family-style.
