In the title compound, C16H13NO, the mol­ecules are connected three-dimensionally through non-classical C—H⋯O and C—H⋯π inter­actions of 3.272 (3), 3.380 (3) and 3.382 (4) Å. Classical hydrogen bonds are not observed. The dihedral angle between the benzyl and quinolin-2(1H)-one mean planes is 87.15 (7)°
