A few things I've tried in the past is:

1.) Eat something healthy at home first, before you go out
to meet someone at dinner. I've actually done that when
I've wanted to save a little money so that I would order
something smaller.

2.) Order an appetizer instead of an entree. I canNOT
believe how big portions have gotten, it is totally out of
control. There are usually one or two appetizers that are
a smaller version of a dinner entree, also a $$ saver. You
could also order a salad to go with it, ask to receive it
before the appetizer and then you feel don't feel like
you're just trying to cheat your brain.

3.) If there's something that looks really good on the
entree side and you know it's going to be huge and you know
self-control will be tough (like once a month for me, I have
absolutely no control when I've got PMS), order your meal
but at the same time you order it, ask the server to just
box up half of it before they even bring your plate to the
table and have them keep it back until you're ready to leave
(if you feel weird about asking, tell them it's for someone
who is ill at home and it's one of their favourite dinners
and you'd like to bring them something since they couldn't
make it to dinner---if they're 'sick', a partial dinner will
seem completely within reason as it might be difficult to
eat a complete dinner).

I've done these more often to save dollars than to pinch
calories, but it can be a win-win...
