PDX: Restaurant Service

I just want to start off by saying how much I love the food scene in Portland. Great ingredients, talented cooks, good restaurants, etc. However, after a series of dismal customer service experiences this past Sunday I'm wondering how others feel about Portland waitstaff service. I've been having a conversation with the people I was out with Sunday and we're sort of wondering if others are as dismayed by bad service in Portland as we are. And a lot of times it's not really bad, just indifferent or lazy. Is there good service here? Do any of you know of restaurants with a great waitstaff? I'm starting to feel like we're never going to be a real respectable food town if we can't get better customer service than what I've been experiencing lately. I don't need a silver dome on my plate when I get up to go to the bathroom, a la le Bernardin, but I do expect a server without attitude, and some sort of respect for their job. Is this too much to ask here? Please direct me to good Portland service!
