Kirkland Signature Lobster Bisque from Costco
Bowl of Kirkland Signature Lobster Bisque

My life got busy, and I haven't posted in a while, but I'm hoping to start up posting again. So this is a late review - I got this lobster bisque with my dad when it was on sale a couple months ago.

My dad ended up freezing the lobster bisque first because he didn't think we'd eat it fast enough, so this was warmed on the stove top from frozen when I had it. The preparation was pretty standard for a pre-made soup - just heat it up on the stove top until it's hot, stirring occasionally, or you can microwave it in a microwave-safe bowl, as well.

The consistency of the soup was good - not watery or super thick. I really liked the savory seafood taste. It wasn't overwhelming, but it did taste quite good. The lobster pieces were pretty small, and some pieces seemed a little dry. It also wasn't super filling, and I kept going back to get more. I haven't had much lobster bisque before, so I don't have much to compare it to, but it did taste really good overall.

REVIEW – Kirkland Signature Lobster Bisque from Costco

  • Susan Lundblade

    I learned a good lesson. Read reviews before buying any product that I have not tried before. I agree with all of the negative reviews about Kirkland Lobster Bisque. I DID expect tiny pieces of lobster due to the price. The sherry wine flavor was strong and there was a fishy taste to the soup.

  • Kurt

    The batch I got the other day (twin pack) was really good. Rich, but not too thick and I liked the flavor. LB is not something I would want frequently, but if I feel like it, I would get this again.

    Last fall I had surgery and half my tongue was removed so eating has become difficult and a necessity rather than a pleasure. Costco’s lobster bisque has turned eating back into a pleasure. The little lobster pieces are easy to swallow and consistency of the soup is perfect. It is flavorful and I have it for lunch 3 or more times/week. Publix carries Panera lobster bisque but I didn’t like their flavor at all. I alternate Costco’s lobster bisque with Costco’s broccoli cheese soup, which is also a perfect consistency. The broccoli is tender and easy for me to eat and the cheese base isn’t so thick I choke.

    My boyfriend and I were at Costco about 3 weeks ago they had lobster bisque the twin containers on sale for $6.99 we bought a twin pack this lobster bisque is the best not too thick not too thin Lobster pieces were small and that’s fine one of the best lobster bisque I have had I will buy it again it is full of flavor I was very very satisfied

  • Steven Clark

    I ate the soup. It left a very bad favour on my tongue. I could not get rid of that flavour for 5 days. Checked the ingredients: Chicken broth, chicken fat. No wonder my tongue felt like it was violently assaulted. Now nothing I eat tastes right.

  • Gina marie Glomski

    Best soup compares to red lobster and better value. On sale so better. I really tasted lobster. I plan on going back and buying alot and freeze some…yum yum

  • Moneen Ahlquist

    Horrible soup. Adding ingredients or spices does not help.

    • Moneen Ahlquist

      Also want to add…where we’re the chunks of lobster?

  • Beah

    I agree that this soup is mediocre at best. I had to add garlic salt and black pepper. I also added crab meat. Much better now but what’s up with that after taste, it’s bitter.

  • Judy

    Worst soup ever! How is it they can even sell this crap. Very watery and zero taste. Felt horrible afterwards. Blech 🤢

    • Bob Whitmore

      Thank you all. I bought the twin pack and ate one. I am returning for full credit the last container. I just do not want to eat it. For the price, at least it should have actual Lobster in it. As others say, too watery. Very poor for the price.

    Purchased at costco last week and had severe diarrhea, thought it was the gratefruit i ate… reheated some today and again I feel like its coming back. not sure if this is good??????

    • Eric Sherwood

      My stomach is absolutely killing me after eating this for lunch today. I have used the restroom as well, I will never eat it again.

  • Peggy

    I fell in love with Captain D’s lobster bisque back in February. I spotted this at Costco about a month or so later. I didn’t like it at all. They add sherry or wine to it which was about all I could taste. And the meat was in very small pieces compared to Captain D’s.

  • Meredith

    It was okay but that’s about all. Too bland, not much flavor. Not much lobster and what was there was overcooked (like canned). Won’t buy it again.

  • G Cusella

    Wish I had seen the reviews before purchasing the product. It is horrible. My wife and I talked about what to do with the second container. Considered adding a little to the dogs food untill it was gone, but finally decided to freeze it and serve it to relatives we are angry with when they come to dinner next Thanksgiving. Since they are not cosco members they will probably never see this post.

  • Georgi Abbott

    This is the worst soup, let alone lobster bisque, my husband and I have ever eaten. It merely had an overall fishy taste will only a slight hint of lobster. The texture of the lobster meat was the same as what you would find in a can. It was extremely bland and very watery. No depth to this product at all. I have to wonder what some people eat at home for them to think this soup is anywhere near good. We planned a dinner around this slop and were so disappointed. We were going to make our own from scratch but just happened to notice this at Costco that day and figured, how bad could it be? Well, it’s bad. Now I know not to try any of the other soups.

    • Nancy

      I just bought Lobster Bisque yesterday from Cosco
      Not very good to thin and not much flavour
      Any 1 else.

      • Moneen Ahlquist

        You bet…I agree

  • Sally Gengo

    I have purchased several times Lobster Bisque from Costco and think it is really good. I have even purchased some small lobster tails, cooked them and added to the soup, yum yum. You sure can’t please everyone from some of the reviews, I say try it yourself. There are some people you can never please. I take some reviews with a grain of salt.

    • Moneen Ahlquist

      You can add all you want as we have and it is still horrible soup.

  • R. Williams

    Thank you for your reviews – I’ve read a bunch of them and appreciate you taking the time to write them. I’ve tried various Asian foods from Costco which is what brought me to your reviews to begin with. Thanks again!

    • Becca Graham

      They used to carry Legal Seafood lobster bisque chowder and those were really good. I used to buy them a lot. I should suggest they bring those soup back! Haven’t tried the Kirkland brand though and with the bad reviews I don’t think I would.
