On your mini map you will see an icon that looks like an eye. If you right click it you can select teleport out of dungeon which will put you back where you were before you entered. Once outside, right click icon again and select enter dungeon. This will put you back at the beginning of the instance.
This is only true when using the LFG tool. If you zone into a dungeon on your own, you cannot simply port out like with LFG, you need to actually walk back to the entrance (or hearth/port out to a city).

I finish a dungeon, everyone else leaves and I am wondering how to get back to the quest giver at the start of the dungeon without reversing it on my own and fighting the re-spawned badguys! Can't do that, so failed quest!
If you act fast or ask someone nicely to wait a bit in the group you can do the following:
Teleport out of the dungeon.
Teleport into the dungeon.
You will start at the entrance.
This can only be done with someone still in the party. If you are alone teleporting out will leave the instance completely. So either act fast or say it on the /instance chat before last boss.
There is also one more possibility (if you are alone). Just die inside (pull something you skipped or jump to lava) and manually run into the dungeon.
Thankfully to Blizzard its no longer needed in most dungeons as the questgivers magically teleport to the end of the dungeon after last boss is killed.
Was I supposed to have done anything else?
yes, either wait to be rezzed or look for a little coffinlike symbol on your minimap (or an arrow pointing at that symbol) - it should mark the entrance to the proper dungeon.
Basically to ressurect you need to manually enter the dungeon. Which is especially funny for people who never played outside lfg and have no clue where the entrance is or its an opposite territory dungeon. Usually graveyard is somewhere far as well. They partially fixed some of these situations (oh the joy of finding Deadmines entrance when gy was outside the mines), but some may still persist.
