at dinner I'm sorry we're not at dinner. (A date in a park or somewhere, a  boy said this to his girlfriend when they were sitting on a park bench in the daytime.) What does not at dinner mean? not at a nice place, a nice restaurant?

It sounds like the couple (the boy and his girlfriend) were supposed to go to dinner but something happened so they could not go to dinner. Maybe they planned to go to dinner, but now he doesn't have any money. "I'm sorry we're not at dinner."

Yes the speaker means he is not attending a dinner that he normally goes to. It's most likely dinner with his family at home which has every day.
