In the title ferrocene derivative, [Fe(C5H5)(C14H14NO)], the dihedral angle between the mean planes of the phenyl ring and the substituted cyclo­penta­dienyl ring is 84.4 (1)°. The mol­ecules are connected into centrosymmetric dimers via N—H⋯O hydrogen bonds. In addition, C—H⋯O and C—H⋯N contacts stabilize the crystal packing.
