If you're still within your calorie limit, why deny it? I always save up a few extra calories a day for a treat, whether its an ice cream bar, a cookie, a cupcake, etc. I LOVE dessert, and for me to say "no, you can't have this because you shouldn't eat it", even though it wouldn't put me over my calorie budget, just makes me grumpy. I'd start resenting it until one day I wouldn't be able to say no and just go to town and eat whatever.
If you really don't want to take the dessert, do they offer coffee? Many people will get coffee after dinner instead of dessert, and maybe you can zing it up a little with flavored creamer and a dollop of whipped cream or something. It'll still have some calories (I use flavored creamers and 2 tablespoons is generally around 70 calories), but not as many as the dessert would have.
