Kodak Portra: Different Labs, Different Looks?

Do different photo labs process and scan Kodak Portra differently to produce different looks? I recently sent rolls of Portra 400 to two labs regularly mentioned on RFF. The scans came back having different looks. One seemed to have more saturated colors and the other more neutral colors, if that makes sense. The film was shot with the same camera at the same speed. Is there a "right" look that I should expect from a commercial lab? Is there a way to ask for the "right" look?

I am fairly experienced when it comes to B&W film, but I have a lot less experience with color film.

As always, I appreciate your help.
