In the title molecule, C13H16FNO, the amide (N-C=O) plane is oriented at an angle of 29.9 (2)° with respect to the aromatic ring. The cyclohexane ring adopts the usual chair conformation. In the crystal structure, intermolecular N-HO hydrogen bonds link the molecules into chains along . A weak C-HF interaction is also observed. The F atom is disordered over two positions with occupancy factors of 0.873 (3) and 0.127 (3).
