Which of the ones you mentioned are ranked higher? Zaytinya’s almost the first restaurant that comes to mind when I think of “ridiculously crowded and highly overrated.” Rosa too, come to think of it. (Matchbox is not high cuisine by any margin, but its prices are affordable and both the mini-burgers and most of the pizzas are reliably tasty.) Rosa Mexicano and La Tasca* are (in my opinion) discernible chains with discernibly chain-y food, and while I had some fantastic tuna at IndeBleu, in my experience the quality there is very inconsistent from menu item to menu item.
But, again, it’s possible we just have different tastes, which is fine.
*Now, Tosca up near Metro Center is one of the best restaurants in the city, but it’s not overly close to the Verizon Center, and it might be more expensive than the OP is looking for (although only marginally more so than most of the restaurants I mentioned, admittedly).
