In the title compound, C19H15NO4, the isoindole ring system is essentially planar [maximum deviation = 0.011 (1) Å] and is oriented at a dihedral angle of 75.7 (1)° with respect to the phenyl ring. The mol­ecular conformation is stabilized by an intra­molecular C—H⋯O hydrogen bond. The crystal packing is stabilized by C—H⋯O hydrogen bonds, which generate zigzag chains along the a axis. The crystal packing is further stabilized by a C—H⋯π inter­action.
